12 inventions (from the wheel to artificial intelligence) that have changed humanity - Checkersaga

#artificialintelligence

We are an amalgam of genes, knowledge, culture and religion, which have influenced our lineage for thousands, tens of thousands of years. One thing is linked to the other, and the history of humanity could not be explained without physical evolution, religion, politics, or science. We are different from our ancestors who lived in the 19th century, or in Prehistory, because we have evolved in different ways. But, What is causing the great changes in humanity? A conquering king, a pandemic, a new religion can change the destiny of hundreds of millions of people. But, objectively, the most important evolutionary changes have come from the hand of technology.


The Peggy Smedley Show: VA Comes to Transportation

#artificialintelligence

Peggy explains how voice assistants impact transportation. She says Juniper Research predicts there will be $8 billion digital voice assistants in the U.S. by 2023 and ResearchandMarkets predicts the global voice assistants market will reach $5.4 billion by 2024. She also talks about: How voice assistants will help during the shopping process. What is causing the growth of voice assistants. How it is going to impact transportation such as AVs and buses.

How Machine Learning (ML) Can Transform The Chemical Industry

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning and AI can improve the functionalities of the chemical industry through the identification of chemical molecules -reactiveness and toxicity level during process engineering. And it can also be used to check the availability of raw materials, feasibility of compound, measuring blending temperature of certain chemical, and environmental concerns during production, transportation, and storage. And in the future, it is expected to increase the speed of the production process through ML technologies at its core. The industries interdependent on the chemical industry like agriculture, construction, automotive, cosmetics, energy, consumer products, transportation, etc., are implementing technology at their core; and the development of these industries will increase the growth of the chemical industry. Hence, the RoI on machine learning goes beyond the product revenue and chemical process.


Interesting Facts About Artificial Intelligence You Can't Afford To Miss

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the rage these days. The technology has been in the industry for the past few years, constantly fascinating the customers with robust AI-enabled technological devices and solutions. However, there's still some confusion when it comes to identifying the businesses adopting AI methodology. Some businesses struggle to find the significance of AI whereas others consider it a major source to fulfill customer technology requisites. Besides its many benefits, amazing Artificial Intelligence facts have also been in the news for bringing some of the well-known personalities on board to discuss the impact of artificial intelligence.


AI 50 Founders Predict What Artificial Intelligence Will Look Like After Covid-19

Transportation "can also become truly contactless if needed," says James Peng, who is CEO of ... [ ] self-driving startup Pony.ai. The first few months of 2020 have radically reshaped the way we work and how the world gets things done. While the wide use of robotaxis or self-driving freight trucks isn't yet in place, the Covid-19 pandemic has hurried the introduction of artificial intelligence across all industries. Whether through outbreak tracing or contactless customer pay interactions, the impact has been immediate, but it also provides a window into what's to come. The second annual Forbes' AI 50, which highlights the most promising U.S.-based artificial intelligence companies, features a group of founders who are already pondering what their space will look like in the future, though all agree that Covid-19 has permanently accelerated or altered the spread of AI. "We have seen two years of digital transformation in the course of the last two months," Abnormal Security CEO Evan Reiser told Forbes in May.


Nvidia EGX takes AI computing to the edge of the network

#artificialintelligence

Nvidia is launching its EGX Platform to bring real-time artificial intelligence to the edge of the network. This means AI computing will happen where sensors collect data before it is sent to cloud-connected datacenters. "There's a massive change in the computing industry being driven by growth of [internet of things] sensors," said Justin Boitano, senior director of enterprise and edge computing, in a press briefing. "There are cameras for seeing the world, microphones for hearing the world, and devices being deployed so machines can detect what is happening in the real world." But this also means there's an exponential increase in the amount of raw data that has to be analyzed.

Council Post: Can AI Help Design A More Sustainable Future?

#artificialintelligence

As societies around the world take increasingly drastic measures to confront the COVID-19 pandemic, the collective response is having an unforeseen impact on the environment. For example, with factories closed and transportation restricted, China saw a 25% decline in carbon dioxide emissions over a four-week period. Similarly, New York City, with fewer restrictions than China, has still seen emissions fall by 5%-10%. It's as if by confronting one crisis, humankind has shown that it could also -- with the proper motivation -- confront another. Of course, like the pandemic itself, the drop in emissions will eventually come to an end, rebounding once restrictions on movement and economic activity ease.


GeoAI for Transportation

#artificialintelligence

Join us for an overview of how GIS-based artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning can be leveraged for transportation agencies. This webinar will give a broad overview of these emerging technologies. We will discuss how these technologies can be leveraged in ArcGIS, and then dive into a number of transportation related use cases, such as feature extraction from lidar and imagery for highway and rail, as well as crash risk prediction and traffic modeling from video analytics. Join us to see how you can put these emerging technologies to work in your organization.


Futuristic Artificial Intelligence – Less Artificial, More Intelligent

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence has had its impact virtually on every industry and human being. AI is considered the main driver of emerging technologies like big data, robotics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), and will act as a technological innovator in the foreseeable future. The impact AI is having on our present lives is hard to ignore, be it in sectors such as transportation, manufacturing, healthcare, education, media, and customer service. However, AI in these sectors is all nascent, and the true self of artificial intelligence will unfold itself in the future as more and more companies are investing hard on AI technology. Companies are spending close to $20 billion on AI products and services annually.
