Industry 4.0: How the Internet of Things is Revolutionizing Manufacturing


Centered around advanced robotics and automation, new ways of human-machine interaction (such as augmented reality) and vast troves of data and boosted connectivity, Industry 4.0 is poised to modernize manufacturing and boost western industrial competitiveness. "Technology, including advanced robotics and artificial intelligence, sophisticated sensors, cloud computing, the Internet of Things, data capture and analytics, and digital fabrication (including 3D printing) are all coalescing into the ushering in of this next industrial revolution," Holleran told Business News Daily. As the number of smart devices and amount of data captured, analyzed, and stored grows, connectivity and communication will only become more important. But the expected payoff – connected, smart devices and an automated production process – promises a major return on investment.

Here's why India is likely to lose the AI race FactorDaily


In sharp contrast, Indian startups have collectively raised less than $100 million from (2014-2017YTD), according to data from startup analytics firm Tracxn -- that's smaller than Andrew Ng's recently launched $150 million VC fund. Artificial intelligence is an especially thorny space to be in as Indian startups lack access to large data sets. Very few VC funds in India will fund business models with a five-to-ten year timeline where data collection and analysis comes first. In 2006, his company – Tachyon Techologies released the first machine learning based Indian language input system called Quillpad.

Busting the Myths about Artificial Intelligence


Manufacturers cannot afford to wait around to implement industrial AI--the rewards are far too great. AI can come in a much less extravagant, very practical format: optimizing existing processes with existing data. In manufacturing, deployment of innovative technology can take years, with ROI sometimes measured in decades. Testing to measure the results of AI on continuous processes requires only days or weeks.

Time prime in worker-scarce Japan for investing in service robots

The Japan Times

Faced with the worst labor shortage in decades, Japanese service companies are finally turning to labor-saving technology, an investment that could lift the sector's woeful level of productivity and allow them to raise wages. It plans to spend about ¥300 million ($2.7 million) to install new technology at its 15 nursing homes in and around Tokyo to make life easier for staff and residents. Capital spending is the most important factor in Japan's productivity growth, Goldman Sachs economists wrote in a recent report. Izumi Devalier, head of Japan economics at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in Tokyo, said the labor shortage could turn out to be an opportunity, forcing Japanese service-sector companies to finally start investing, and perhaps fueling an economic revival.

Taiwan goes in big on AI craze » Banking Technology


Cash will be used for "adding value" to sectors like finance using AI The Taiwanese Ministry of Science and Technology has put its money where its mouth is to make a mark on the world of artificial intelligence (AI) with a TND $16 billion ($527 million) investment, reports The AI craze is very quickly gathering pace in every aspect of our lives, and those at the top of the pile will be sitting on mountains of cash before too long. According to the China Post, the AI development plan will come from Taiwan's flagship infrastructure bill and the Cabinet's annual budget, aiming to create a series of research labs across the country. The focal point will be an AI manufacturing base in Central Taiwan Science Park, set to open in September, as well as an AI development centre in Southern Taiwan Science Park imminently. Taiwan's smart robotic initiative, which is probably more focused on the manufacturing or agricultural verticals, aims to invest just over £50 million, creating 50 companies, employing 4,000 people and creating 30 new technologies over the next four years.

Fintech in 2017: Automation Will Rule


This shows no sign of stopping in 2017, with new and existing technologies allowing institutions to ultimately offer more unique banking experiences. From my meetings with decision-making executives at the world's leading banks, here are the top five trends dominating their technology investment discussions: In 2017, several banks will undoubtedly take their first steps toward "conversational commerce," a term coined by Chris Messina of Uber to describe the future of messaging within apps. They will also inspire meaningful change within the bank's organizational structure with the continued rise in executive power of the chief digital officer, chief marketing officer and chief data officer. However, for this to happen, the role of the procurement team will also need reevaluation -- a process that could result in new vendor evaluation processes that focus on agility, innovation and time to market, rather than just on vendor consolidation and cost negotiation.

Five Reasons Why AI Is Suddenly Accessible @ThingsExpo #AI #ML #IoT #M2M


According to Accenture, 85% of executives plan to invest extensively in AI in the next three years, and in the same time period, Forrester estimates that businesses using AI will "steal" $1.2 trillion from companies that don't. That's because implementing AI at scale still requires expensive data scientist or analytics resources to generate and deploy accurate models. Importantly, it also greatly reduces the need to invest in expensive and hard to find data scientists, allowing you to run leaner and produce even stronger results. DataRPM has pioneered meta-learning in the field of cognitive predictive maintenance (CPdM) for industrial IoT.
