AI For Everything!

Artificial intelligence and machine learning take center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast. First, we take a closer look at how a new algorithm called ART (Automated Recommendation Tool) is ushering in a new age of enlightenment in the world of synthetic biology. We investigate how this revolutionary new algorithm was tested and what it means for the future of bioengineered cells. Aaron Tersteeg (Intel) also joins … Read More → "AI For Everything!"

Eos Embedded Perception Software Sees All

Sit down, take a deep breath, and try to relax. In a few moments, I’m going to show you a video of people (well, dummies that look like people) walking in front of vehicles equipped with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking systems. The results will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. I’m still shaking my head in disbelief at what I … Read More → "Eos Embedded Perception Software Sees All"

Radar to the Rescue: How Ainstein is Improving Our Safety through mmWave IoT Sensing

In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we start things off with a very special News You May Have Missed. In this segment, we take a closer look at how a team of researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine (in collaboration with IBM) have identified a “lonely” speech pattern using machine-learning models that can be used to detect loneliness in older adults.   … Read More → "Radar to the Rescue: How Ainstein is Improving Our Safety through mmWave IoT Sensing"

The JOYCE Project to Equip Machines with Human-Like Perception

Did you ever watch the British television science fiction comedy Red Dwarf? The stage for this tale is the eponymous spaceship Red Dwarf, which is an enormous mining vessel that is 6 miles (10 km) long, 5 miles (8 km) tall, and 4 miles (6 km) wide. Series 1 through Series 8 originally aired on BBC 2 between 1988 and 1999 (somewhat reminiscent … Read More → "The JOYCE Project to Equip Machines with Human-Like Perception"
