11 Public Safety Solutions for Smart Cities Using IoT

If you watch the news regularly, you might think the world is a dangerous place, especially if you subscribe to one of the many online news aggregators that feed your paranoid echo chamber with personalized news feeds. In reality, both violent and property crimes have dropped significantly over the last 25 years. Public perception is […]

8 AI Diagnostics and Imaging Startups for Digital Health

Investing in emerging technologies can be extremely risky. It can also be extremely rewarding – and not just for your bank account. Technologies like artificial intelligence have the potential to change the world in many different ways. One of the industries where AI is already making real advances is healthcare, such as the ability to […]

Mirriad – Native In-Video Advertising

While technological breakthroughs are happening left and right these days, society still seems to be grasping for interesting things to talk about. Look no further than a topic which made CNN’s front-page news this past week. Apparently, Southwest Airlines had a worst driver’s license contest and a paper airplane contest when a flight was delayed which – […]

Russian Computer Vision Company is World Leader

Russia seems to get a bad rap these days when in fact it’s a fascinating place to visit. Say what you will about Russia’s President Putin, but he’s managed to turn Moscow into a great city in which every Russian wants to live – and you probably would too after spending a few weeks there. […]

Creating Synthetic Data for Computer Vision Algorithms

Ask anyone who’s trying to develop machine learning algorithms what’s most critical for making better algorithms and they’ll probably say data. Having a unique dataset to train your algorithms on is a competitive advantage, but even the best datasets may not contain “boundary cases”, which are situations that happen so infrequently they’re almost impossible to imagine. […]

6 New Perception Systems for AI Self-Driving Cars

We recently caught an indie film called At Eternity’s Gate about the artist and ear fetishist Vincent van Gogh. The painter suffered from mental illness, and the movie attempted to capture his brilliant but mad vision through various camera tricks that were intended to mimic van Gogh’s own impressionistic aesthetic. It made us a little […]

Future City of Tomorrow To Be Powered by Smart Technology

We recently told you about the building boom behind spaceports, where sci-fi visions of high-tech rocket bases straight out of Star Wars are overlaid on existing airports or old industrial sites. Most of the “boom” is still on paper only, with spiffy illustrations of spaceports inked by artists likely taking a break from drawing oversexed […]

How AI Can Make Smart Robots Smarter

There’s a term that’s been going around called “lights out factories” which refers to manufacturing facilities that are so automated that you don’t even need to leave the lights on because there are no humans around. A company called Rethink Robotics proposed that we turn the lights back on, and allow their robots to work alongside […]

Hive – AI for Enterprises Meets Human-in-the-Loop

We’re not going to lie to you. Sitting around all day researching the crap out of various technology topics, and then giving said research away for free, is a bit disheartening at times. No, it’s not the fact that we have to do the research. That’s the best part. We come across incredibly interesting facts, talk […]

8 Top-funded Facial Recognition Startups

The eyes may be the window to the soul, but the face is the door through which we can enter the future. OK, we’re a bunch of underpaid MBAs, not starving poets, but that was our less prosaic way of introducing the topic of this article: facial recognition technology. Facial recognition technologies are becoming ubiquitous, […]
