Tamr Helps Air Force Wrangle Data

#artificialintelligence

Data prepper Tamr Inc. will assist the U.S. Air Force in boosting utilization of its air assets under a five-year contract designed to use machine learning techniques to accelerate the flight certification process for new aircraft configurations. Those configurations include equipping front-line aircraft with new weapons, sensors and defenses such as electronic warfare pods. Tamr said the contract with the Air Force's Seek Eagle Office could be worth as much $60 million. The office based at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., is responsible for integration new technologies into front-line aircraft. The Air Force office will use Tamr's machine learning platform to organize more than 30 years of aircraft performance studies dispersed across the organization.


How to Apply Artificial Intelligence in Education? -- Observatory of Educational Innovation

#artificialintelligence

The dream of creating a machine that emulates human behavior has been an obsession throughout human history. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been in our minds for many years, since Adam's creation: "God creates him from a moldable material, programs him, and gives him the first instructions (Sánchez-Martín et al. 2007)." Even in Greek mythology with Ovid's account of Pygmalion sculpting a figure of a beautiful woman who is given life for Pygmalion to love her. In Hebrew mythology, the Golem was created with clay and animated to save the inhabitants of a Jewish city. In Norse mythology, the giant Mökkurkálfi or Mistcalf was created from clay to support the troll Hrungnir in his fight against Thor.


How AI and Blockchain Can Benefit Each Other?

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain are two common buzzwords that we get to hear these days. While one has already reached a critical point of implementation, the other is an emerging one. While AI offers automation and machine with cognitive intelligence of humans but data capabilities beyond their power, Blockchain is more like a new filing system for digital information, which stores data in an encrypted, distributed ledger format. Through the maintenance of a decentralized database architecture by Blockchain, the record and authentication of certain operations are subject to the agreement of several parties rather than a single authority. This enables the creation of tamper-proof, highly robust databases that can be read and updated only by those with permission.


How to Update Agency Security Operations Centers

#artificialintelligence

Today's hybrid IT environments, which incorporate cloud and on-premise infrastructure, demand structural changes to agency security operations centers, or SOCs, to be better able to operate within cyberspace versus simply reacting to it. The structure of SOCs is already adapting and evolving to bring together defensive operations and the analysis of emerging threats with the strategic introduction of new technologies. The result is a mature, flexible, risk-based and cost-efficient approach to ensure the crown jewels of an enterprise remain secure. One key to succeeding in this environment is to apply both automation and orchestration. Automation is applied to both defense operations and threat hunting, using a combination of artificial intelligence and machine learning.


Tachyum Shows Prodigy Running Existing x86, ARM, and RISC-V Software

#artificialintelligence

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 4, 2020 – Tachyum Inc. announced that its Prodigy Universal Processor has successfully completed software emulation testing across x86, ARM and RISC-V binary environments. This important milestone demonstrates that Prodigy will enable customers to run their legacy applications transparently at launch with better performance than any contemporary or future ARM or RISC-V processors. Coupled with hyperscale data center workhorse programs such as Hadoop, Apache and more, which Tachyum is recompiling to Prodigy native code, this capability will ensure that Prodigy customers can run a broad spectrum of applications, right out of the box. Tachyum customers consistently indicate that they would run 100% native applications within 9-18 months of transitioning to the Tachyum platform to exceed performance of the fastest Xeon processor. The emulation is to smoothly transition to native software for Tachyum Prodigy.


How AI and predictive analytics eliminate costly IT downtime

#artificialintelligence

Increasing automation and digitization is inevitable. More companies are transferring their operations to IT systems, and more of these operations are being automated. However, what isn't inevitable is the rise in IT failures and periods of downtime that digitization and automation entail. Businesses are losing billions of dollars per year from IT downtime. Fortunately, the increasing use of AI-based predictive analytics can root out problems before they even arise.


Biotech startup Gero grabs €1.9M to hack ageing and COVID-19

#artificialintelligence

Based out of Singapore, Gero develops new drugs for ageing and other complicated disorders using its proprietary developed artificial intelligence (AI) platform. Recently, the company has secured $2.2 million (€1.9 million) in Series A funding, bringing the total capital raised since Gero's founding to over $7.5 million (€6.4 million). Gero's founder Peter Fedichev, said, "We are happy with the recognition and support from these strategic investors who themselves are acknowledged leaders in the fields of AI and biotechnology. This will help us attain the necessary knowledge at the junction of biological sciences and AI/ML technologies that is necessary for the radical acceleration of drug discovery battling the toughest medical challenges of the 21st century. We hope that the technology will soon lead to a meaningful healthspan extension and quality of life improvements " The round was led by Bulba Ventures with participation from previous investors and serial entrepreneurs in the fields of pharmaceuticals, IT, and AI.


Royal Bank of Canada and Borealis AI announce new AI

#artificialintelligence

RBC's AI private cloud platform is the first-of-its-kind in Canada to deliver intelligent software applications and boost operational efficiency Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) and its AI research institute Borealis AI have partnered with Red Hat and NVIDIA to develop a new AI computing platform designed to transform the customer banking experience and help keep pace with rapid technology changes and evolving customer expectations. "Modern AI cannot exist without access to high performance computing. This collaboration means that we can conduct research at scale, and deploy machine learning applications in production with improved efficiency and speed to market." As AI models become more efficient and accurate, so do the computational complexities associated with them. RBC and Borealis AI set out to build an in-house AI infrastructure that would allow transformative intelligent applications to be brought to market faster and deliver an enhanced experience for clients.


3 Ways Artificial Intelligence Will Change Healthcare

#artificialintelligence

It's no secret that healthcare costs have risen faster than inflation for decades. Some experts estimate that healthcare will account for over 20% of the US GDP by 2025. Meanwhile, doctors are working harder than ever before to treat patients as the U.S. physician shortage continues to grow. Many medical professionals have their schedules packed so tightly that much of the human element which motivated their pursuit of medicine in the first place is reduced. In healthcare, artificial intelligence (AI) can seem intimidating.
