- It’s all about Apple this week, as the unveiling of the iPhone X and Apple Watch 3 are greeted with mixed reactions.
- In other news, we’ve been putting in a showing at Frankfurt’s international motor show (IAA), where autonomous tech and cars that combine transport, PA capabilities, entertainment systems and retail hubs in one are all the rage.
- The new smart watch has cellular and GPS capabilities, so you can leave your phone at home and still receive calls and messages.
- If, like me, you’re a sucker for this kind of vision, and if, like me, you can’t be bothered to make the drive to your nearest store, you’ll be thrilled to learn that there’s a new augmented reality app that will let you virtually ‘try out’ new pieces of furniture…
- To use it, download the IKEA Place app to your phone, then take a picture of the place you envisage putting your new furniture, and select the piece you want from a catalogue of 2,000 items.

- However, in 2015, Leslie N. Smith, of the US Naval Research Laboratory, found a way to automatically search for the optimal learning rate by starting from a very small value, running a few mini-batches through the network, and tweaking the learning rate while tracking the change to the loss, until…
- It usually takes a much longer time to find the optimal loss when using the normal learning rate schedule, where a developer waits until all the epochs are complete before manually trying again with a different learning rate.Data augmentation (computer vision and image classification — for now)Data augmentation is a simple method for…
- In fastai, 4 random augmentations per test image are used in the predictions, and the average of those predictions is used as the prediction for that image.Replace word vectors with a pretrained recurrent neural networkA way to get a world-class sentiment analysis framework, without using word vectors, is to take the…
- This works better than the embedding matrices one gets from word vectors because RNNs can keep track of long range dependencies better than word vectors.Back-propagation through time (BPTT) (NLP)The hidden state in a deep recurrent neural network can grow to an unwieldy size if it isn’t reset after back-propagating some time-steps….

- Among them was Stefan Schumacher, IBM’s Global Director for Connected Vehicle & Mobility Services, who discussed new, cognitive-driven business models in Speaker’s Corner at the New Mobility Hall last Thursday.
- The connected car already offers a lot beyond simple transportation.
- However, there is one area that represents a largely untapped resource where connected vehicles are concerned: commerce.
- This is a digital white space, and it has a lot of potential, especially considering that: – – Instead of purchases being merely the end point of a given journey, what if we could bring commerce to the journey itself?
- Find out more about our work on connected cars in and our forthcoming work with Volkswagen.

- Artificial Intelligence (AI), with its ability to handle large amount of data, is playing a major role in cybersecurity by controlling threats.
- According to a research conducted by Wakefield Research and Webroot, a cybersecurity vendor, 99 percent of the companies believe that AI could enhance their cybersecurity process.
- Further, 87 percent of these companies have already deployed AI.
- There is a vast misconception that AI could replace security analyst, on the contrary, AI frees security analysts to spend time on higher value and more strategic initiatives.
- AI scrutinizes forensic data, detects vulnerabilities by scanning codes and assists security tools to spot abnormalities.
