WORX Landroid M robotic mower Review : Automatic electronic yard care – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

This summer I've been testing several lawn mowers, the most unique of which is this robot from WORX. This is the WORX Landroid M robotic mower, a fully automated, cordless, rechargeable battery powered piece of equipment that'll do all your work for you. The biggest obstacle you'll face is setup, and that's pretty straightforward if you follow the directions step-by-step. The Parts Included in our review is the basic WORX Landroid M robotic mower and a few add-ons. If you're looking at the WORX website (or WORX in a store) there are at least two versions of this Landroid M, one with GPS, one without.


Not so Artificial Intelligence – When is AI really AI? – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

Is it just the LifeStyler or are others noticing just how many brands are claiming to have artificial intelligence built into their products? Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions. The term may also be applied to any machine that exhibits traits associated with a human mind such as learning and problem-solving. AI is not the ability to turn a kettle off once the water has boiled but would be AI if the kettle determined by itself that at 11 am on days below 25 degrees you had a cup of coffee and worked out that you were indeed at home it would boil the kettle ready for you at 11 am only on cooler days. Thus AI is the ability to make decisions with lots of variable pieces of information.


A captivating robot turns temperature screening into "feel good" experience – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

Misty, the programmable person robot, is designed to be almost anything an engineer can dream up, from senior companion and wellbeing monitor to friendly pal who will tirelessly play catch with your dog.Now joining the fight against the pandemic, the engineers at Misty Robotics have defined a new role for her: A highly engaging temperature screening assistant. It is a new, turnkey offering designed for customers who want to screen temperatures at a point of entry to a facility, but who likely do not have the technical background of an engineer the robotics platform was originally created for. "Misty was'purpose-built' for developers who use the platform to create their own applications, using third party APIs, hardware modifications, etc. Typically, we provide developer support, sample code, and documentation," said Ian Bernstein, Founder and CTO of Misty Robotics. "But for this application, we started getting inquiries from all sorts of end user companies that do not have technical people. So, we knew we had to develop a solution that was turnkey and came with super easy and clear setup and operating instructions."


Evolving machine learning algorithms from scratch – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

Designed to automate the design of machine learning (ML) algorithms, AutoML has until now focused on constructing solutions by combining sophisticated hand-designed components. However, an alternative approach to using such hand-designed components in AutoML, say Google researchers, is to search for entire algorithms from scratch."This is challenging because it requires the exploration of vast and sparse search spaces, yet it has great potential benefits -- it is not biased toward what we already know and potentially allows for the discovery of new and better ML architectures," says the researchers. "By analogy, if one were building a house from scratch, there is more potential for flexibility or improvement than if one was constructing a house using only prefabricated rooms. However, the discovery of such housing designs may be more difficult because there are many more possible ways to combine the bricks and mortar than there are of combining pre-made designs of entire rooms."As


Alabama combats isolated seniors' loneliness with robots pets – IAM Network

"It's beyond dispute that social isolation is deadly for seniors," said ADSS Commissioner Jean Brown. "Studies have shown it's worse than smoking 15 cigarettes a day, and we know beyond a doubt social isolation can lead to not only physical decline but to mental decline."


Fooling deep neural networks for object detection with adversarial 3-D logos – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

Examples of the researchers' 3D adversarial logo attack using different 3D object meshes, with the aim of fooling a YOLOV2 detector. Over the past decade, researchers have developed a growing number of deep neural networks that can be trained to complete a variety of tasks, including recognizing people or objects in images. While many of these computational techniques have achieved remarkable results, they can sometimes be fooled into misclassifying data. An adversarial attack is a type of cyberattack that specifically targets deep neural networks, tricking them into misclassifying data. It does this by creating adversarial data that closely resembles and yet differs from the data typically analyzed by a deep neural network, prompting the network to make incorrect predictions, failing to recognize the slight differences between real and adversarial data.


Artificial Intelligence: A Potent Weapon Against Covid-19 – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

The Covid-19 pandemic has the plot of a dystopian film script that none of us want to even watch, least of all, be featured in. But the humans were not asked of their opinion. The extremely contagious disease spread as fast as the horror stories about it. Soon, most of the countries were grappling with growing number of Covid positive cases and needed intervention at the earliest. There were not enough humans on the planet to win a fight of this magnitude.To stop the spread, even the most skeptical of people, companies, and countries had to rely on a technology they were slightly skeptical about.


A Brief Outlook on the Artificial Intelligence landscape in Germany – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

The AI landscape in Germany is rapidly transforming in a positive direction. The nation is aiming to be a global AI leader among all countries in Europe. At present, Berlin is the fourth biggest AI hub, and companies like BMW, Daimler, and Volkswagen are steering the AI innovation.


Mayo in Mankato adds more robotic surgery options – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

MANKATO -- Surgeons say the continued expansion of robotic surgery options at Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato will allow for more minimally invasive procedures.The health system recently added a new DaVinci Xi robot for the urology, gynecology and general surgery departments. The orthopedic surgery department also received a new robot this week.Surgical staff will train to use the latest technology, with the DaVinci set to debut in August. "It actually gives us a lot more versatility with what we can do," said Dr. Tara Krosch, a general and trauma surgeon, of the new technology. "The focus is still the same though, to allow for more minimally invasive surgeries."Krosch is also vice chair of the health system's clinical practice in surgical specialties. She said Mayo in Mankato went from having two surgeons using robotic surgery to nine over about the last two years.One of the nine surgeons, Dr. Derek Gearman, joined the team last year to provide prostate surgeries.


MSPs are Bolstering Security Programs with Machine Learning and Automation – IAM Network

#artificialintelligence

Overcome the skills shortage and alert fatigue with advanced machine learning and automation technology. Advanced threats, a shortage of security experts and the rise in work-from-home together form a catalyst for MSPs to enhance cybersecurity effectiveness for their customers. As MSPs seek ways to increase efficiency and do more with less, they're turning to advanced analytical capabilities like machine learning, security analytics and automation. All of these have moved past their initial hype cycle and are now adopted and delivering enhanced ROI and outcomes in IT and cybersecurity. "The future of your business is Big Data and Machine Learningtied to the business opportunities and customer challenges before you."
