In a previous post, we featured mobile apps designed as multi-sided platforms useful in the aftermath of a natural disaster, political crisis, or in the case of an ongoing crime incident or safety emergency. These platforms function in larger ecological and industrial ecosystems with many variables that need to be maintained and addressed in order for business operations, public works, or civic life to gradually stabilize after a disaster.
Disaster conditions will clearly be more impactful and more frequent due to the impact of climate change. The domestic terrorism threat stateside is becoming a constant, with the impact and frequency of growing domestic U.S. political instability and public safety incidents to be determined.
We will need systems that are monitoring these temporal, ephemeral ecosystems and providing insights and recommendations for real-time decision-making support and situational awareness analysis, designed with redundancy and zero fault mechanisms in mind and not dependent on the current electrical grid.
Read Steve Durbin argue how Artificial Intelligence can help businesses bolster their industrial cyber security on Forbes : A technology-led revolution, dubbed Industry 4.0, is gathering pace in the industrial world where traditional processes and legacy technologies are being replaced by smart devices, automated machines, and advanced forms of computing.
Drivers working for Amazon Delivery Service Partners are under constant surveillance for safe driving. They are currently monitored by artificial intelligence systems that award them with scores for safe driving. The score is used to give out bonuses, promotions, and more incentives. Some drivers have complained that the technology is
Read George Anadiotis explain why hardware and software need to work in tandem to deploy machine learning for Edge computing on ZDNet : Edge computing is booming. The idea of taking compute out of the data center, and bringing it as close as possible to where data is generated, is
Some software developers are now letting artificial intelligence help write their code. They’re finding that AI is just as flawed as humans. Last June, GitHub, a subsidiary of Microsoft that provides tools for hosting and collaborating on code, released a beta version of a program that uses AI to assist programmers.
The U.S. is in a struggle to maintain its dominance in air, land, sea, space, and cyberspace over countries with capabilities increasingly on par in all domains with that of the U.S. In addition, information (in all its forms) is the center of gravity of a broad set of challenges faced by the United States, including information operations, cyber information warfare, foreign hostile influence, intelligence operations, influence warfare, disinformation, proxy warfare, and the perennial threat of terrorism, foreign and domestic.
Information, then, is the clear strategic vector of value creation for the emergence of applied technologies to enable operational innovation. For the U.S., the desired outcome is continued dominance for another American Century. For the Chinese, military capabilities usher in the dawn of a new technological superiority and, as a result, geopolitical and military dominance on the world stage.
The Department of Justice is investigating whether artificial intelligence monitoring could be used as a valuable tool to prevent suicide and crime within US prisons. A House of Representatives panel has requested that a study be conducted on the use of AI to analyze prisoners’ phone calls and pick up
According to new reports, National Institute of Standards and Technology officials are seeking the insights of a range of different technology industry players as they work on drafting Congressionally-directed guidance that would aim to promote the responsible and safe usage of artificial intelligence technologies. The framework is aimed at building
Scientists are currently exploring whether an artificial intelligence system may be capable of diagnosing demetia after just one brain scan. The AI machine could also predict whether the condition of the patient will remain stable for years, need immediate treatment, or slowly deteriorate. It currently takes several scans and tests
The National Science Foundation announced earlier this week that it has officially extended the reach of its National Artificial Intelligence Research Institutes. According to the statement, the foundation added 11 new institutes where officials will collaborate to pursue AI research in complex areas such as augmented learning, precision agriculture, cybersecurity,
