Numbed by yet another year of data breaches–2,013 in 2019 alone by one estimate–it is no surprise researchers widely acknowledge human error as a top-source of cyber insecurity. C-Suite executives and policy makers called “human error” their top cybersecurity risk in Oracle’s Security in the Age of AI report, released last May. Without change, the scale and …

Yara International (OSE: YAR), a global leader in crop nutrition and digital farming solutions, and IBM (NYSE: IBM), invite farmer associations, industry players, academia and NGOs from the food and agriculture industry to join a movement to develop an open data exchange that facilitates collaboration around farm and field data, with the aim of improving the efficiency, transparency …

IBM introduced artificial intelligence (AI) into its TRIRIGA solution to help real estate and facility management professionals better utilize office space and deliver a more engaging workplace experience. TRIRIGA, one of the leading Integrated Workplace Management Systems in the world, includes TRIRIGA Building Insights, and combines occupancy data from sources, such as WIFI and/or IoT sensors, with newly embedded AI. This provides customers operating …

Polygames is a new open-source AI research framework for training agents to master strategy games through self-play, rather than by studying extensive examples of successful gameplay. Because it is more flexible and has more features than previous frameworks, Polygames can help researchers with advancing and benchmarking a broad range of zero learning (ZL) techniques that …

For artificial intelligence to prevail, intelligent computing systems that are many times more efficient than today’s standard computers are required. Novel solutions developed in Zurich are driving this revolution – and attracting prominent international partners. Already back in the 1990s researchers in Zurich were banking on artificial intelligence (AI). Thanks to this visionary attitude, a …

Now that we’ve entered 2020, it’s time to shed light on what the upcoming decade means for our customers, for the technology landscape, and for HPE. In the past decade we’ve seen trends like APIs, big data, containers, IoT, SaaS, software-defined, (and an alphabet soup of everything between) swiftly transform from buzzword to reality, and …

With an increasing global population, the urgency to find new and innovative ways to address food demand is felt around the world. Since 1970, fish farming has existed in the Nordics and developed into a major industry. Norway Royal Salmon (NRS) is a leading producer of sustainable salmon, selling about 70,000 tons of salmon every …

ETH Pioneer Fellow Marcel Schuck is developing a robotic gripper that can manipulate small and fragile objects without touching them. The technology is based on sound waves. The small installation that Marcel Schuck has assembled on his workbench is reminiscent of a school physics lesson: an arrangement, comprising two semi-​spheres and resembling a pair of …

A model invented by researchers at MIT and Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI) that uses satellite imagery to tag road features in digital maps could help improve GPS navigation. Showing drivers more details about their routes can often help them navigate in unfamiliar locations. Lane counts, for instance, can enable a GPS system to warn …

Darktrace, the world’s leading cyber AI company, has announced that Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, one of America’s favorite restaurant chains, has implemented Darktrace as its go-to security solution for detecting and responding to advanced attacks and insider threats.
