Daily Artificial Intelligence News Roundup #127

1. Amazon Rekognition announces updates to its face detection, analysis, and recognition capabilities

Today we are announcing updates to our face detection, analysis, and recognition features. These updates provide customers with improvements in the ability to detect more faces from images, perform higher accuracy face matches, and obtain improved age, gender, and emotion attributes for faces in images. These aspects might include pose variations caused by head movement and/or camera movements, occlusion due to foreground or background objects (such as faces covered by hats, hair, or hands of another person in the foreground), illumination variations (such as low contrast and shadows), bright lighting that leads to washed out faces, low quality and resolution that leads to noisy and blurry faces, and distortion from cameras and lenses themselves.

6. A creative AI designed NASA’s next spider-like interplanetary lander –

Over the past couple of years I’ve been banging the drum, through my articles and keynotes, saying that increasingly companies are using a new form of creative machines, based on Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs), to innovate and create new products for them – a human right brain task that many people said can’t be automated, but that we’re increasingly proving can. So far these creative AI’s have been used to create art and music, design aircraft parts, fashion lines, and furniture for companies like Airbus and Amazon, sneakers forUnder Armour, and, of course, self-evolving self-printing robots. Now though they’re stepping up their game after engineers at software company Autodesk teamed up with NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) to use AI to design a new interplanetary lander that could explore distant Moons like Europa and Enceladus.

7. See how AI can turn almost any surface into a user interface

Midas Touch

A startup called HyperSurfaces wants to completely change how you interact with the physical world — and based on some recently released demo videos, it might just meet that lofty goal.

The London-based startup recently unveiled a new technology that can transform any object into a user interface. Essentially, this tech lets you communicate with a computing system using virtually anything you like as a conduit — a glass wall, a car door, even a metal clothes rack — and it has the potential to end our reliance on keyboards, buttons, and touch screens forever.

8. Guide to Data Platforms for Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning – Part 2

With AI and DL, storage is cornerstone to handling the deluge of data constantly generated in today’s  hyperconnected world. A true AI data platform must  concurrently and efficiently service the entire spectrum of activities involved in DL workflows,  including data ingest, data curation, training, inference, validation and simulation.

AI and DL workflows happen concurrently, continuously, and benefit from distributed computing. Read More

9. Alzheimer’s could be rapidly identified by machine learning algorithm

Alzheimer’s could be rapidly identified by machine learning algorithm

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

Alzheimer’s is a degenerative disease that affects the brain, leading to dementia and a loss of independent living. Additionally, early detection is also improving thanks to a group of scientists who created a video game to track how the brain navigates space. The patients in the scans ingested a radioactive form of glucose. Read More

This article was originally written as part of an in-depth AI report sponsored by Iron Mountain, and was written, edited and published in alignment with our transparent Emerj sponsored content guidelines.

Banks and other financial institutions seem to be adopting AI applications ranging from business process automation to credit scoring. Historically, banks have collected vast amounts of data records, and even some of the more traditional banks tend to have the resources needed for AI projects. Read More

13. Study: It only takes a few seconds for bots to spread misinformation

Shortly after the 2016 election, newly elected President Donald Trump—peeved at losing the popular vote to Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton—falsely claimed he would have won the popular vote if not for the supposed votes of 3 million illegal immigrants. And Twitter bots played a disproportionate role in spreading that false information.

That’s according to a new study by researchers at Indiana University, published in Nature Communications. Read More

14. The first worldwide drone standards have been unveiled to keep aircraft safe

The first ever set of global standards for drones has been launched today, designed to keep aircraft safe and to make sure operators are held accountable. It also says there should be flight logging, training, and maintenance requirements. In the Financial Times today, the head of the UK’s air safety board said that half of air traffic incidents now involve drones. Read More

15. An electric plane with no moving parts has made its first flight

Your typical jet plane is full of fast-moving blades. We need the spinning of turbines and propellers to create thrust and let us take to the skies.

The inaugural flight was made possible by a process known as electroaerodynamic propulsion, an idea that has been around since the 1960s. Read More
