Deep learning, one of the most effective approaches to artificial intelligence, continues to gain traction in the business world. And AI is booming: Salesforce’s “2018 State of Sales” report found that sales leaders predict that the use of AI will grow 155 percent by 2020. Gartner predicted that AI and deep learning would be commonplace by 2023, mainly […]
Deep learning is one of the most compelling new technologies available to businesses and is poised to be a game changer for many. Now is an ideal time for companies to consider leveraging deep learning because it is quickly moving from the realm of academic research to one in which new B2B software platforms can […]
CARFIT and CEA have signed an agreement to create a joint laboratory focused on Artificial Intelligence related to car vibrations and their interpretation. The lab will bring together teams from the List, a CEA Tech Institute, and from CARFIT to share knowledge and expertise. The joint lab will be dedicated to the development of artificial intelligence […]
DeepMind, a British artificial intelligence firm acquired by Google in 2014, is building an AI capable of “imagination” and understanding the consequences of previous actions. In two research papers submitted last week, DeepMind describes how the AI would be able to “construct a plan” and remember information that may be important in the future. See […]
Jabil and eyeSight have announced a partnership to develop ‘next-generation’ driver monitoring and gesture control solutions for automotive customers. The monitoring technology checks the attentiveness of the driver in real-time, recognizing when they are not attentive or drowsy. In the video, the software alerts the driver through audio cues, although visual and sensory alerts could […]
Facebook AI Research (FAIR) has been working on artificial intelligence (AI) agents that negotiate for the best deal, using all the complexities of language, reasoning, and deception that humans use. In the tests, conducted over several months, Facebook found that when left to their own devices, two AI agents created an unknown new language, to […]
Andrew Ng, a co-founder of Coursera and Baidu chief scientist for three years, has left the company to create his own AI startup, called Deeplearning.ai. Ng has been a prominent face at Baidu, helping the company’s expansion into artificial intelligence and autonomous cars. In his leaving message, Ng said that he wanted to create an […]
Monsanto, the leading producer of genetically modified crops (GMOs), has announced a partnership with Atomwise. The controversial corporation will use Atomwise’s artificial intelligence expertise to discover molecules that could protect crops quicker. Atomwise uses deep learning algorithms to discover molecules that might have the desired effect, rather than look at every individual molecule. The program […]
Remember how you started recognizing fruits, animals, cars and for that matter any other object by looking at them from our childhood? Our brain gets trained over the years to recognize these images and then further classify them as apple, orange, banana, cat, dog, horse. then it gets even more interesting — aside from figuring […]
One of the most compelling aspects of industrial IoT is the ability of sensor technology to solve problems that have plagued traditional industries for years if not decades. One such problem is machine maintenance and repairs. Up until recently, such maintenance was typically time-consuming, costly and limited by the challenge of finding appropriately skilled workers. […]
After abandoning its own GPU for supercomputers, machine learning, and video games in 2009, Intel has returned to the market with a new 72-core Xeon Phi, to compete with NVIDIA’s growing portfolio of GPUs. The Xeon Phi ‘Knights Landing’ chip, announced at the International Supercomputing Conference in Frankfurt, Germany last week, is Intel’s most powerful and […]
Nvidia has announced its DGX-1 Deep Learning System at the 2016 GPU Technology Conference. The system sports eight of Nvidia’s newest Tesla GP100 graphics cards, providing up to 170 teraflops of half-precision performance. That might not mean much to the average PC fan, but in context that is over twelve times the graphics performance of […]
