Drones will watch Australian beaches for sharks with AI help

Humans aren’t particularly good at spotting sharks using aerial data. At best, they’ll accurately pinpoint sharks 30 percent of the time — not very helpful for swimmers worried about stepping into the water. Australia, however, is about to get a more reliable way of spotting these undersea predators. As of September, Little Ripper drones will monitor some Australian beaches for signs of sharks, and pass along their imagery to an AI system that can identify sharks in real-time with 90 percent accuracy. Humans will still run the software (someone has to verify the results), but this highly automated system could be quick and reliable enough to save lives.

Watch PCIe Gen5 Interface Demo Running on a Speedster®7t FPGA from Achronix

Sponsored by Achronix

PCIe Gen5 is the most advanced PCIe specification available today, providing data link capable of a 32 GT/s for next-generation systems. You can start to design your PCIe Gen5 system today using the Achronix Speedster7t FPGA. This demonstration shows a successful PCIe Gen5 link between a Lecroy PCIe exerciser and a Speedster7t FPGA. The Speedster7t family is one of the first FPGAs available now that natively supports the PCIe Gen5 specification.

Machine Learning with Microchip

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Microchip

Can you design a machine learning application without a deep knowledge in machine learning? Yes, you can! In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Yann Le Faou from Microchip about a machine learning approach that is low power, includes an expertise in communication and security, and is easy to implement.
