Deep learning computer vision solution for trains

Deep learning computer vision solution for trains

Sep 19, 2018 United States
A groundbreaking solution for the railway industry that delivers deep learning computer vision and object detection technology to the network edge and onboard trains. This new, multiplatform solution will allow railway network operators to deploy applications, such as video surveillance and smart cameras, that mimic human vision and perform tasks, such as vehicle identification, intruder detection and empty seat recognition, that result in improved safety, security and risk analysis.

Machine learning algorithm automatically sorts zebrafish eggs

Machine learning algorithm automatically sorts zebrafish eggs

Sep 19, 2018 Germany
Zebrafish possess almost all of the same genes we humans do - and that makes their eggs the perfect model organisms for use in genetic and drug research. Previously, samples have had to be prepared manually, which is a very time-consuming task. Now, however, a clever machine learning algorithm will be able to separate and sort the fish eggs automatically.

Understanding deep sea images with AI

Understanding deep sea images with AI

Sep 18, 2018 Germany
Diving robots or autonomous underwater vehicles, which carry out measurements independently in the deep sea, can now record large quantities of high-resolution images. To evaluate these images scientifically in a sustainable manner, a number of prerequisites have to be fulfilled in data acquisition, curation and data management.

Research helps make buses smarter

Research helps make buses smarter

Sep 14, 2018 Switzerland
A rather unusual trolleybus has been navigating the streets of Zurich in recent months. With its large windscreen and covered wheels, it could easily be mistaken for a tram. It ­features a hybrid electric drive system that allows it to draw power from an on-board traction battery as well as ­overhead wires. But this bus is also "smart", boasting specially designed software that automatically gathers information on the route.

If military robot falls, it can get itself up

Sep 5, 2018 United States
Scientists at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory and the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory have developed software to ensure that if a robot falls, it can get itself back up, meaning future military robots will be less reliant on their Soldier handlers.

New AI camera for faster, efficient image classification

New AI camera for faster, efficient image classification

Sep 4, 2018 United States
The image recognition technology that underlies today's autonomous cars and aerial drones depends on artificial intelligence: the computers essentially teach themselves to recognize objects like a dog, a pedestrian crossing the street or a stopped car. The problem is that the computers running the artificial intelligence algorithms are currently too large and slow for future applications like handheld medical devices.
