9. Avoiding Scary Outcomes from Your AI Initiatives

In the spirit of Halloween, let’s focus on something really scary: over half of enterprise AI projects fail.

AI projects fail for a many reasons but these common data training mistakes can significantly improve the odds of a project’s success when avoided or corrected. And it requires specific skills for managing large projects, designing annotation and labeling tasks, auditing working output, and creating processes for verifying label and annotation accuracy, people and skills that small AI teams don’t have.

12. Model paves way for faster, more efficient translations of more languages

MIT researchers have developed a novel “unsupervised” language translation model — meaning it runs without the need for human annotations and guidance — that could lead to faster, more efficient computer-based translations of far more languages. Given new words in one language, they can then find the matching words and phrases in the other language. They apply that technique to “word embeddings” of two languages, which are words represented as vectors — basically, arrays of numbers — with words of similar meanings clustered closer together.

3D printed tactile map for the visually impaired

ga(‘send’, ‘event’, ‘Uncategorized’, ‘article’, ‘article-industry-impression’, {nonInteraction: true});

Here at Springwise, we have featured a number of innovations aimed at people who are visually impaired. For example, a college graduate in Israel has created a new camera that creates 3D photos to allow people who are blind to see photos through touch. Another innovation is navigation app developed by students at a university in Poland that sends personalised alerts to students who are blind. Read More

14. Artificial Intelligence In Industrial Automation – Current Applications – Current Applications


As of now, numerous companies claim to assist industrial equipment operators and engineers in aspects of their roles from operating and maintaining machinery to improving factory processes.

We researched the space to better understand where AI comes into play in industrial automation and to answer the following questions:

This report covers companies offering software across two technologies:

This article intends to provide business leaders in the manufacturing space with an idea of what they can currently expect from AI in their industry.

Industrial Internet of Things


Siemens is a Munich, Germany-based company that offers a software called MindSphere, a cloud-based operating system that enables machines and equipment inside a plant to collect data. Read More

16. How an AI agency could help government wrangle autonomous machines

A public interest group is calling for a new federal authority to oversee how the government approaches artificial intelligence technologies as they become central to the economy.

Why it matters: Autonomous machines are gaining footholds in our daily lives and across industries, but there’s no clear or consistent approach to governing AI and the policy challenges that are already starting to emerge. Read More

17. Cars are making scary moves in driver-assist mode

Cars do scary things sometimes when operating in driver-assist mode: braking in shadows, swerving at unseen obstacles, and failing to respond the way we expect. The other night, an invisible set of hands kept vying for control of the 2019 Acura RDX I was driving.

Why it matters: Consumers need to be able to trust the advanced driver assist systems on today’s vehicles or they will never embrace fully self-driving cars. Read More

18. Can AI help stop religious violence?

Software that mimics human society is being tested to see if it can help prevent religious violence.

Norway and Slovakia are trialling the tech to tackle tensions that can arise when Muslim immigrants settle in historically Christian countries.

Core beliefs

The research, published in the Journal for Artificial Societies and Social Stimulation, indicates people are a peaceful species by nature. Read More

19. How NASA Will Use Robots to Create Rocket Fuel From Martian Soil

After 18 months living and working on the surface of Mars, a crew of six explorers boards a deep-space transport rocket and leaves for Earth. No humans are staying behind, but work goes on without them: Autonomous robots will keep running a mining and chemical-synthesis plant they’d started years before this first crewed mission ever set foot on the planet.

Dirt or dust on any heavenly body is commonly referred to as regolith. Read More

20. Schools Enlist AI to Detect Vaping and Bullies in Bathrooms

Schools have been removing bathroom doors, posting bathroom monitors, and even closing bathrooms in their struggles to handle the surging popularity of vaping among middle school and high school students.

Soter Technologies originally developed its Fly Sense device with bullying detection in mind.

“Schools typically install the system and see a spike of vaping incidents in the first two weeks,” says Derek Peterson, CEO of Soter Technologies. Read More

22. Security and budget concerns delaying data centre automation


Data Centre

A new report from Tech Pro research indicates around 60% of organisations have yet to automate any data centre functions

Not only have the majority of organisations yet to automate any data centre functions, a quarter also say they have no plans do so “in the near future”.

Respondents – surveyed online in September – say that budget and security concerns, and a short supply of in-house talent, is preventing their companies from pursuing automation.

As the volume of data stored and used by firms increases, there is a growing need for new solutions employing AI to automate processes to reduce downtime and improve operational efficiency. Read More

23. 3 measurable benchmarks for enterprise AI that define the future

Electricity and mobile phones are two fairly recent examples that come to mind.

These qualities are benchmarks that can help us define AI’s progress from computer science curiosity to requisite tech tool.

The efficiency of your AI platform can be determined by looking at how much of the data science pipeline is streamlined and automated. Read More

24. This Tiny Drone Uses Friction to Pull More Than Its Own Weight

Last week, Stanford researchers revealed that that they had built tiny drones that can open doors. If you pull on the rope with some force (I will call it T for tension), that rope pulls back on you with the same magnitude force. Now bring this charged pvc near some tiny torn up pieces of paper.
