Dubai Police To Fight Crime With Flying Motorcycles

International Business Times

The police department also unveiled a smart electric motorbike and robotic vehicles fitted with multiple cameras to identify reckless drivers and rule breakers. It has cameras and will be linked to the command room," Brigadier Khalid Nasser Al Razooqi, director of the Smart Services Department at Dubai Police said, according to ABC News. Earlier this year, the Dubai police launched water jetpack systems for firefighting from the air. According to an ABC News report, "The firefighter uses a jetpack to rise above a bridge, by using water pressure from the attached Jet Ski, before using a fire hose to douse a car which is made to look like it is alight."


$2 million competition aims to make jetpacks a reality by 2019

Popular Science

While the laws of aerodynamics and engineering drove planes into long aluminum tubes with wings, fiction maintained the dream of a personal flying tool that people could strap to their back, ride through the air, and then arrive intact and on-time at work. For the first phase, teams will submit a written report by April 18, 2018 and a preliminary design, with 10 winners selected for a $20,000 prize each. The four best entries from phase two will earn each winning teams $50,000. Importantly, teams don't have to win in Phase I to be eligible for Phase II, and don't have to win in Phase II to be eligible to compete in Phase III.


The quiet revolution: how artificial intelligence is transforming marketing

So what's the deal with artificial intelligence? Is it destined to go the way of the jetpack and the robot home help or is it an actual thing that's going to make a profound difference to the way you approach marketing and to every other domain that AI threatens to disrupt? These things happen gradually, over the course of years or even decades, until eventually, you can't remember the time before smartphones reigned supreme. Read 10 Practical Examples of Artificial Intelligence in Marketing and then see how many of these applications you can spot for yourself in the wild.


NVIDIA Introduces Jetson TX2 For Edge Machine Learning With High-Quality Customers

#artificialintelligence

Expanding on their Jetson TX1 and TK1 products for embedded computing, NVIDIA announced last week their Jetson TX2 platform--a hardware and software platform the size of a credit card designed to deliver AI computing at the edge. NVIDIA touts Jetson TX2 as delivering "unprecedented deep learning capabilities," and based on the form factor, it may be right as it paves the way for a number of cutting-edge uses--from highly intelligent factory robots and commercial drones, to cameras with AI for smart cities. Operating at its maximum performance mode, NVIDIA says it will deliver twice the performance of Jetson TX1, using less than 15 watts of power. Running at maximum energy efficiency mode, NVIDIA says it can achieve twice the energy efficiency of TX1, while using less than 7.5 watts of power.

Nvidia's Pascal-powered Jetson TX2 computer blows away Raspberry Pi

PCWorld

It's designed to help make robots, drones and other devices that rely on computer vision applications. The Pascal GPU brings computer vision to robots and drones, allowing them to recognize objects and navigate around obstacles. Much like Raspberry Pi, Jetson was originally launched as a hobbyist product. The TX2 is not meant for basic robots or drones, but for those that need heavy computing vision applications, which in turn require good GPU performance.
