Fighting Climate Change With Big Data: Clir And SINAI Technologies

Fighting Climate Change With Big Data: Clir And SINAI Technologies

When you think about solving the climate crisis, what springs to mind?

Most people’s knee-jerk reaction is along the lines of “electrification,” “carbon sequestration,” “recycling,” or “renewable agriculture.”

Using machine learning to find mutations in similar genome sequences of cancer samples

Using machine learning to find mutations in similar genome sequences of cancer samples

A team of researchers working at the Francis Crick Institute has developed a way to find mutations in similar genome regions of cancer samples. In their paper published in the journal Nature Biotechnology, the group describes using a machine-learning algorithm to spot cancerous mutations in non-unique parts of the genome.

How AI and IoT are Transforming Transport Management

How AI and IoT are Transforming Transport Management

AI-powered IoT systems provide predictive analytics, playing a crucial role in running businesses more efficiently.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are both cutting-edge technologies that are starting to get traction in the world around us. Fortune Business Insights notes that the size of the global AI market hit $27 billion in 2019, and estimates put it to grow tenfold by 2027. The IoT is just as vibrant a sector. PR News Wire contends that the amount of IoT devices will cross 24 billion by 2030. Both of these advances count as “smart” technologies. The way they’re impacting the world today will increase as more IoT devices make their way onto the market, and the cost of implementing AI goes down. But how could tech like this change transport management?

Understanding AIOps: History, Uses, and Future

Understanding AIOps: History, Uses, and Future

AIOps is necessary because the technological systems that run the world are now too complex to be managed by mere humans. To understand AIOps, it helps to consider one very weird thought: the technological systems that we humans have built have become too complex to be managed by mere humans. Specifically, the IT operations that run…

Facebook teaches AI-powered robot to adapt while walking

Facebook teaches AI-powered robot to adapt while walking

The four-legged robot resembles a dog walking over sand, rocks and other difficult surfaces. As it moves forward, the black robot adjusts its stride and adapts without falling. 

Teaming up with Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science and the University of California, Berkeley, Facebook’s AI research team taught the unnamed robot how to adjust to different conditions in real time, the team said Friday. In a video, the robot, which was created by Chinese startup Unitree, adjusts how it walks as it moves over stones, down stairs, through a construction site and around outdoor terrain. 

Machine learning models based on thermal data predict solar radiation

Machine learning models based on thermal data predict solar radiation

A research team at the University of Córdoba has developed and evaluated models for the prediction of solar radiation in nine locations in southern Spain and North Carolina (USA).

Life, the Universe and AIOps

Life, the Universe and AIOps

AIOPS is an area of technology that is developing rapidly and is generally accepted to mean “using machine learning to contextualize large amounts of data”.

While data analytics systems are great at identifying unusual patterns in large amounts of data (for example in a data lake) they can be quite poor at providing context to the signals they detect.

New VA tool uses artificial intelligence to predict COVID-19 patient mortality

Tim Strebel is no stranger to the spirit of innovation.

Currently a computer programmer focusing on health informatics at the Washington DC VA Medical Center, Strebel has been recognized by VA for his ingenuity.

We live in a cloud connected world

We live in a cloud-connected world

Your strategy is to move everything to software configured and cloud-connected existence. I can say this with absolute confidence because quite frankly this is everyone’s strategy in 2021.

With cloud thinking, every decision becomes an operational choice without the historical lags previously associated with massive capital changes. With cloud thinking, every team can spin up a new test environment and try out their ideas without needing to implement infrastructure, platforms, and applications, instead they go to an app store, learn what is available, spend a couple of hours reading and watching videos and they configure their ideas into a process to try.

Google researchers show AI can design microchips better and faster than humans

Google researchers show AI can design microchips better and faster than humans

Artificial intelligence can design computer microchips that perform at least as well as those designed by human experts, devising such blueprints thousands of times faster. This new research from Google is already helping with the design of microchips for the company’s next generation of AI computer systems.
