Facial recognition technology and 3D athlete-tracking to enhance the viewing experience of the Olympic Games will be used during Tokyo 2020, Intel has said.
The computer chip-maker, which is a leading partner of the major international multi-sport event, will be able to identify more than 300,000 people at the Games in Japan, including athletes, volunteers, media and other staff.
No other technology has captured the world’s imagination quite like AI, and there is perhaps no other that has been as disruptive. AI has already transformed the lives of people and businesses and will continue to do so in endless ways as more startups uncover its potential. According to a recent study, venture capital funding for AI startups in the UK increased by more than 200 percent last year, while a Stanford University study observed a 14-times increase in the number of AI startups worldwide in the last two years.
Cyber AI specialist Darktrace has launched a new cyber security tool that emulates real life thought processes to investigate cyber threats at a fraction of the speed of humans.
The UK security firm has been developing the technology behind Cyber AI Analyst for three years at its R&D centre in Cambridge, where researchers used a combination of unsupervised, supervised and deep learning to obtain an algorithmic thumbprint of human intuition and cyber analyst know-how. 100 “world-class” cyber analysts representing a variety of customer deployments were studied as part of the research, the company said.
Innovation is central to data centre evolution. The focus, however, tends to be on the latest hardware products rather than maintenance.
But what about day-to-day maintenance and management—those “keeping the lights on” functions that can eat up 80 percent of IT spending? Can they be modernised, optimised, and enhanced with new technologies and approaches?
Nvidia and VMware today announced the launch of accelerated GPU services on VMware Cloud on AWS, forming an advanced hybrid cloud infrastructure for machine learning workloads.
The new services will allow organisations to migrate VMware vSphere-based applications and containers to VMware Cloud on AWS, VMware’s cloud service that runs on bare metal infrastructure in AWS data centres,
