Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Ltd. broke ground last year on a hydrogen-fueled plant in Japan that will be run by artificial intelligence. “There’s going to be autonomous cars,” Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems America chief executive officer Paul Browning said Monday at the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Future of Energy Summit in New York. “There’s also going to be autonomous power plants.”
Artificial intelligence could make power systems more flexible and better coordinated, Browning said. According to the company, the plant will be capable of diagnosing system failures before they happen and dispatching its own power based on weather and supplies in the market.
AI researchers at UC Berkeley and the University of British Columbia have created virtual characters capable of imitating the way a person performs martial arts, parkour, and acrobatics, practicing moves relentlessly until they get them just right.
The work could transform the way video games and movies are made. Instead of planning a character’s actions in excruciating detail, animators might feed real footage into a program and have their characters master them through
practice. Such a character could be dropped into a scene and left to perform the actions.
Yesterday, Mark Zuckerberg said in his testimony before the US Congress that he could see AI taking a primary role in automatically detecting hate speech on Facebook in five to 10 years.
The technology isn’t ready to deploy yet, the Facebook CEO says, because of the limitations to artificial intelligence. Hate speech detection remains a reactive process, and users need to flag it to the social media platform for it to be manually deleted, Zuckerberg said. It’s particularly difficult to find because it’s communicated in many different languages.
This paper investigates to what extent do cognitive biases affect human understanding of interpretable machine learning models, in particular of rules discovered from data. Twenty cognitive biases (illusions, effects) are covered, as are possibly effective debiasing techniques that can be adopted by designers of machine learning algorithms and software.
While there seems no universal approach for eliminating all the identified cognitive biases, it follows from
our analysis that the effect of most biases can be ameliorated by making rule-based models more concise. Due to lack of previous research, our review transfers general results obtained in cognitive psychology to the domain of machine learning. It needs to be succeeded by empirical studies specifically aimed at the machine learning domain.
Automower is the world’s most capable robotic mower that gives you the perfect lawn and more free time. It’s smart enough to negotiate the challenges of large and complex lawns – like multiple narrow passages, obstacles, tough terrain and slopes up to 45%.
Unlike many other robotic mowers on the market, the Automower 450X has a GPS-assisted navigation which uses satellite technology to communicate with your phone. The GPS and a host of features including
Automower Connect app make it the intelligent way to keep your lawn green, healthy and perfectly mowed. The app keeps you in control and maintain “lawn and order”: track, interact and stay updated at the touch of a screen, wherever you are in the world.
As many as 100,000 high-end direct and indirect jobs could be created in Ireland by 2030 as driverless cars become the norm, a new report claims. The study suggests the State has the potential to become a leading global hub for companies developing connected and autonomous vehicle technology.
“The Government has an essential role to play in both facilitating the smooth and safe introduction of connected and autonomous vehicles onto our roads and helping to ensure that Ireland reaps the maximum economic benefit from these technologies,” said John McCarthy, associate director and leader of intelligent mobility for engineering group Arup in Ireland.
To perform continuous delivery at any scale, you need to be able to release software changes not just at high velocity, but safely as well. Today, Google and Netflix are pleased to announce Kayenta, an open-source automated canary analysis service that allows teams to reduce risk associated with rolling out deployments to production at
Developed jointly by Google and Netflix, Kayenta is an evolution of Netflix’s internal canary system, reimagined to be completely open, extensible and capable of handling more advanced use cases. It gives enterprise teams the confidence to quickly push production changes by reducing error-prone, time-intensive and cumbersome manual or ad-hoc canary analysis.
