Artificial Intelligence (AI) is much more than just a buzzword nowadays. It powers facial recognition in smartphones and computers, translation between foreign languages, systems which filter spam emails and identify toxic content on social media, and can even detect cancerous tumours. These examples, along with countless other existing and emerging applications of AI, help make …

ABB has been awarded a contract worth around $30 million by the Canadian data and analytics company EarthDaily Analytics Corp. (EDA) to develop and manufacture next-generation multispectral imaging systems to be placed on 10 satellites (including an in-orbit spare) that will circle the Earth. The order was booked in the first quarter of 2022. Multispectral …

As part of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, UK, ABB is today announcing the ABB Formula E Climate Initiatives, which will underline the global technology leader’s commitment to raising the profile of issues relating to climate change. ABB is title partner of the ABB FIA Formula E World …

SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) announced that starting in 2025, all new vehicles ordered as company cars will be emission free.* Making a fleet of 27,000 cars more carbon neutral will move SAP closer to its own ambitious climate targets and complements the company’s move to make sustainability central to its solution portfolio. As world and business …

New research by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) climate scientists and collaborators shows that satellite measurements of the temperature of the troposphere (the lowest region of the atmosphere) may have underestimated global warming over the last 40 years. The research appears in the Journal of Climate The team studied four different properties of tropical climate …

After the Perseverance rover’s landing on Mars, the world marveled at the remarkable new images from the planet’s surface. Earthlings can’t get enough of the Red Planet. And unbeknownst to most — even to some of the engineers who’ve been involved (more on that later) — NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover contains a vital piece of Intel-based …

Artificial Intelligence can sustain the environment by helping to reduce GHG emissions and optimize the use of natural resources. However, AI can have unintended consequences – such as by increasing demand and thus increasing carbon footprint. This four-step plan can ensure AI can be deployed in a responsible way. With Artificial Intelligence (AI), a software …

The perils of machine learning – using computers to identify and analyze data patterns, such as in facial recognition software – have made headlines lately. Yet the technology also holds promise to help enforce federal regulations, including those related to the environment, in a fair, transparent way, according to a new study by Stanford researchers. …

Artifical intelligence is advancing at a rate that it is no longer limited to assisting with problems on our own planet. AI is also helping to with space exploration, from designing missions to processing streams of data. An AI assistant called Cimon will be used to reduce astronauts’ stress by performing tasks they ask it …

Scientists are combining artificial intelligence and advanced computer technology with biological know how to identify insects with supernatural speed. This opens up new possibilities for describing unknown species and for tracking the life of insects across space and time Insects are the most diverse group of animals on Earth and only a small fraction of …
