‘AI Starter Kit’ To Build R&D Projects

For developers who are interested in quickly developing R&D projects using accelerometry and vibration sensors, a new AI Starter Kit can be used to collect data quickly and exploit that data using AI in applications ranging from wearables to predictive maintenance solutions for machines. To foster cost-efficient industry 4.0 and digital signage applications, there is a new Raspberry Pi based smart display from TFT specialist Distec. In light of a steady increase of video surveillance hardware and AI-enabled analytics, Seagate unveiled the industry’s first AI optimised surveillance hard drive to efficiently manage data storage and processing challenges.

AI Starter Kit For Engineers

Reality AI has announced a new product for R&D projects using accelerometry and vibration sensors. The Reality AI Starter Kit is based on the Cross Domain Development Kit (XDK) from Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions, a programmable sensor device and prototyping platform. The kit allows users to collect accelerometry and vibration data using the sensor built into the XDK. Applications range from wearables for people to predictive maintenance solutions for machines to collect data quickly and exploit that data using artificial intelligence. Read more.

Raspberry Pi-based Smart Displays For Cost-efficient Industry 4.0

Distec plans to present its new IoT-compliant POS-Line IoT monitor for Industry 4.0 applications at the upcoming SPS IPC Drives 2017 in Nuremberg, Germany. The new monitor is based on the newly developed Artista-IoT controller board, integrating the latest generation of the Raspberry Pi Compute Module (CM3). The POS-Line IoT monitor or panel PC is optimally suited for cost-efficient IoT applications for industry and digital signage. With this networkable monitor or panel PC, users can visualize the digitalization of their processes and enhance efficiency through a transparent manufacture. Read more.

Hard Drive For AI-Enabled Surveillance

Seagate has announced its SkyHawk AI hard disk drive (HDD), claimed the first drive created specifically for artificial intelligence (AI) enabled video surveillance solutions. SkyHawk AI is designed to provide unprecedented bandwidth and processing power to manage always-on, data-intensive workloads, while simultaneously analyzing and recording footage from multiple HD cameras.

“AI most likely cause of WW3” says Elon Musk


Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has made another apprehensive comment on the future of artificial intelligence development, saying the country with “[artificial intelligence] superiority most likely cause of WW3” on Twitter.

Musk, the most prominent critic of AI development, was responding to a comment by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who said the nation that leads in AI will be “leader of the world.”

The comment is just the latest from Musk, who has taken to Twitter previously to call on governments to regulate AI and to say AI is vastly more risky than the situation in North Korea. In past comments, Musk has likened AI development to “summoning the demon” and called it an existential threat.

His heavy criticism of the development has led him into arguments with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, an avid AI enthusiast. Several AI experts have also denounced Musk’s comments.

AI a “national concern”

Almost all the leaders on the global stage have started to invest in research and development of AI for national means, in some way. The Chinese government recently said it wants to be a leader in AI by 2030 and will invest heavily in companies working on the technology.

Musk recently added his name to alongside 100 others asking for the United Nations to actively regulate autonomous weapons development, before it is deployed on the battlefield.

Even with all the criticism, Musk has founded an AI research firm, called OpenAI. The startup recently showed its technical prowess in the online strategy game DoTA 2. Musk has also founded Neuralink, which is reportedly developing brain-computer interfaces.
