FaceID… now for pets too.

Imagine this. You’ve got more than one pet. Probably a family of cats or dogs or both. You keep separate feeding bowls for each, but when you’re not around, there’s that one dastardly pet that dominates all those bowls. One pet that bullies the others and eats their food. That’s a problem, right? It’s not the most glamorous problem for technology and artificial intelligence to solve, but it’s a problem nevertheless.Showcased at CES 2019 (and also a winner of the CES Innovation Award), Mookkie’...

The challenges of moderating online content with deep learning

Earlier in December, the internet was abuzz with news of Tumblr’s declaration that it would ban adult content on its platform starting December 17. But aside from the legal, social and ethical aspects of the debate, what’s interesting is how the microblogging platform plans to implement the decision. According to a post by Tumblr support, NSFW content will be flagged using a “mix of machine-learning classification and human moderation.” Which is logical because by some estimates, Tumblr hosts hu...

The hidden secrets of insect poop

Insect defecation may not seem like one of the pressing scientific inquiries of our time, but in fact the faeces of these wee creatures serves an extraordinary variety of functions in bug and human life. Unlike most animals, many insect species actually use their excrement. They utilize it as their home, for feeding, in predator-prey interactions, for hygiene, habitat location, shelter construction, for reproduction and physical or chemical defense against natural enemies. (Kids: don’t try this ...

The security threats of neural networks and deep learning algorithms

This article is part of Demystifying AI, a series of posts that (try to) disambiguate the jargon and myths surrounding AI. History shows that cybersecurity threats evolve along with new technological advances. Relational databases brought SQL injection attacks, web scripting programming languages spurred cross-site scripting attacks, IoT devices ushered in new ways to create botnets, and the internet in general opened a Pandora’s box of digital security ills. Social media created new ways to man...

AI isn’t here to steal your job, it’s here to make it better

The belief that AI will displace jobs has been well countered with arguments that AI actually empowers workers to focus on higher-level thinking and creating. It’s an advantage in the workplace, not an obstruction. But there’s another, less discussed advantage of adopting AI at work. One with the potential to level the playing field for underrepresented groups at the very top levels of many corporate environments.   I see a not-too-distant future in which AI enables new voices and perspectives t...

Alexa gets a Sims 4 integration, while Sims get an off-brand in-game Alexa

Approximately one in five Sims under my care will die in a kitchen fire. Those who survive will face an even bigger threat: smart speakers. EA and Maxis recently announced The Sims 4 would arrive on Amazon‘s Alexa smart speakers in the form of a new Alexa skill. And, as art imitates life, your Sims are also getting their own smart speaker with a virtual assistant called “Lin-Z.” The Amazon collaboration means The Sims 4 is the latest AAA title to debut on the Alexa platform, joining Skyrim.

This scientist used facial recognition technology on birds

As a birder, I had heard that if you paid careful attention to the head feathers on the downy woodpeckers that visited your bird feeders, you could begin to recognize individual birds. This intrigued me. I even went so far as to try sketching birds at my own feeders and had found this to be true, up to a point. In the meantime, in my day job as a computer scientist, I knew that other researchers had used machine learning techniques to recognize individual faces in digital images with a high degr...

Amazon is holding a public version of its secretive MARS conference

The Impact of Government Shutdown on Marketing Data

It’s difficult to understate how disruptive the shutdown is to everyone, not just the people who directly work for Uncle Sam, or just how long the aftereffects will last.

Robots learn to grab and scramble with new levels of agility

Robots are amazing things, but outside of their specific domains they are incredibly limited. So flexibility — not physical, but mental — is a constant area of research. A trio of new robotic setups demonstrate ways they can evolve to accommodate novel situations: using both “hands,” getting up after a fall, and understanding visual instructions they’ve never seen before. The robots, all developed independently, are gathered together today in a special issue of the journal Science Robotics dedic...

Alexa gets a professional ‘newscaster’ voice for reading the day’s news

Amazon already gave Alexa the ability to whisper, and now it’s rolling out another way to change the assistant’s speaking style – it’s giving Alexa a “newscaster” voice. Starting today, when U.S. customers ask Alexa “what’s the latest?” to hear the day’s news, Alexa will respond using a voice that’s similar to how a professional newscaster delivers news. The voice knows which words should be emphasized for a more realistic delivery of the news, explains Amazon. To achieve this new voice, Amazon ...

How AI Improves Customer Lifetime Value and Makes It a Primary KPI

Picture John. He’s just become a customer of your B2B software company and agreed to buy your product, which comes with a year of support and maintenance. After 12 months, John will have to renew his contract to keep his licenses active. Now it’s time to record the sale and move on to acquiring the next customer, right? Not quite. You’ll record John’s initial transaction value, of course, but that’s just the beginning of John’s customer lifetime value (CLV). With fragmented audiences, expe...

Why AI can’t solve everything

The hysteria about the future of artificial intelligence (AI) is everywhere.

Just looking at the media headlines, you might think that we are already living in a future where AI has infiltrated every aspect of society. While it is undeniable that AI has opened up a wealth of promising opportunities, it has also led to the emergence of a mindset that can...
