The breakthroughs in Artificial Intelligence (AI) will bring massive social consequences, transforming the modern life by reshaping several industries —transportation, health, science, or finance. The transition is rising new challenges (from rebuilding infrastructure or developing new cyber-security systems and networks, to crafting new laws and regulations) for scientists and engineers, policymakers and government, and also to the public.   The When Will AI Exceed Human Performance ...
Over the past years, few leading tech companies have acquired most of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) startups in Silicon Valley, consolidating some of the best AI teams in the world but slowing down the AI advantage in other industries of harvesting information from large datasets —one of the most significant AI-based opportunities. IMAGE: Race to acquire Top AI startups - CB Insights     The strategy for some leading tech companies is to bring the talent in-house and figur ...
As an end user of many connect electronic devices, I often find myself questioning just how secure are these devices and the communication between them.  Luckily, I know that there are many smart engineers out there ready to tackle that problem, including my colleague, Donnie Garcia, Solutions Architect for Security and IoT at NXP.  He is first to admit that there is no simple answer, turnkey solution or magic spell to fix all of the end-to-end security flaws already built into our emb ...
One of the ways how Smart Cities will help urban areas to sustain growth and improve efficiency is by reducing the number of vehicles moving around the city, seeking the Smart Transit concept: highly-efficient autonomous transit systems, merging the flexibility of the personal car with the sustainability of public transit. However, it might take some time for this to happen, as several breakthroughs need to converge together with government legislation and public acceptance.   Another way ...
Arduino Create interface (via Arduino)   Arduino Create now integrates Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone and other Linux based SBCs ─ all with IoT in mind. Arduino’s goal is to make developing IoT (Internet of Things) devices quicker and easier than ever before for the Maker or Professional Developer. Stated in a press release, Arduino Creates brings the Arduino framework and libraries to all these SBCs, officially, changing the development game in a big way.   “With this release, ...
Smart Cities are urban areas using information management technologies (like Big Data) and electronic gadgets (like sensors) together with the Internet of Things (IoT) to collect and supply data from city infrastructure. This raw data is aggregate it, normalized it, analyzed it, and interpreted it in real time to efficiently optimize the available resources, and effectively manage all city operations and services to drive economic growth. Smart Cities aims to make metropolitan environments more ...
The emergence of Machine Learning (ML) or Artificial Intelligence (AI) has got everyone talking.  A lot is being discussed and written in the newspapers about the potential of the technology in every aspect of human life and how it will change the future. Many new products are being announced and innovations are taking place in hardware, software and infrastructure levels, to best solve ML problems. At the ground level though, ML is all about mathematical solution to a given problem via st ...
  In a previous blog post we took a brief look at the MangOH Red and what makes this new board standout. We then started to explore the Legato framework that runs on the Magoh boards (and the Raspberry Pi, instructions here).   We started off looking at a very simple application, heartbeatRed, one that has only one component, includes one source file and uses one API, to interface with two GPIOs (a button and a LED). In this blog we will move further to an application that has multipl ...
Countries are adapting their workforces, economies and business models, population and society, and even culture to be ready for the new jobs Artificial Intelligence (AI) will help to create —and not stealing them!. Companies across all industries are viewing AI as a facilitator for their future operations; nowadays top leaders and executives are rethinking their business models too. The Leadership in the Age of AI survey by Infosys concluded Artificial Intelligence has currently gone b ...
Corti is an AI system that can analyze background noises and diagnose whether someone is suffering cardiac arrest over the phone. Emergency dispatchers could soon get some assistance thanks to AI (Photo via Washington Post)   It’s not easy being an emergency dispatcher. You not only have to keep the person on the other line calm, but you need to ask them questions at the same time to help them as much as possible.  It’s a lot to take on, but soon these dispatchers may get ...
The technology giant Apple is under fire after a couple of its investors requested the company to offer more tools to fight smartphone addiction in children. But is it really Apple responsibility to fix the problem?   The world has always seen people suffer from various addictions; whether it is a substance or a behavior. However, addictions have taken a more subtle and sneaky form: smart devices. This new addiction seems to be creating havoc among teens and younger users. According to th ...
BEAM allows you to display photos, messages, logos and Gifs on an AMOLED button you can wear. (Image credit: BEAM Authentic)   Chances are, you’ve probably worn a button to display your affinity for a cause, your favorite bands or even just a smiley face at some point in your life and while some of them were probably eye-catching, none of them can rival the BEAM smart wearable button and for good reason.   BEAM Authentic’s button allows you to broadcast your own customiza ...
As mentioned before, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is essentially transforming our reality; becoming more and more sophisticated in a short time, tasks that once exclusively were for humans are opening up to machines and robots, as they are learning to interact with humans not just to follow instructions. Robots are doing today works that humans can not do, but with the latest technological breakthroughs, machines are also entering on jobs that require personalized skills —situational awa ...
Stephen Hawking believes that while AI can do some good, it can do a lot of harm and we need to be prepared for the risks involved. Stephen Hawking’s outlook on the future of AI isn’t so optimistic (Photo via Hawking.org.uk)   Casual, but maybe a little bit scary. The story of human civilization being overthrown by computers and AI has been turned into numerous books, movies, and TV shows. But it seemed like a threat only if you were really paranoid by technology. Well, maybe i ...
Amazon now has an ARview feature on its shopping app, and Microsoft’s HoloLens are now certified as safety goggles. Preview items in your home with Amazon ARview. (Photo from Amazon)   People are always finding new ways to use technology, like using your smartphone as a projector. Companies are doing the same thing but on a slightly bigger scale. Amazon is always on the cusp of introducing technology you really don’t need. The retail giant is launching a new AR feature inside i ...
