Adiverse range of breakthrough technologies, including “artificial leaves” that turn CO2 into fuel, and a technique that harvests water from air, could soon be playing a role in tackling the world’s most pressing challenges, according to the Top 10 Emerging Technologies 2017, an annual list which is published today.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is gaining high importance among key executives across the globe in almost every end use industry. AI technologies especially machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, speech recognition, and voice recognition are intended to provide machines with human like intelligence and features such as reasoning and learning. In fact, AI technology can perform certain tasks better than human being such as processing huge chunks of database efficiently and accurately.
The World Economic Forum on Wednesday announced its 2017 class of Technology Pioneers, representing the world’s most innovative start-ups and scale-ups in such fields as artificial intelligence and robotics, virtual and augmented reality, blockchain, cybersecurity, autonomous driving, drones and biosciences.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is growing faster than ever in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region owing to the rise in machine learning capabilities. The AI market in APAC has recently shifted from nascent stage to intermediate stage. The growth of AI technology in the APAC region is mainly because of the huge chunks of data base created through AI powered platforms such as software suites, wearable devices, and chatbots.
Autonomous car development has a strong relation with enhancing the safety on the road as road accidents are one of the biggest man-made threats to human life. Around half a trillion dollars are lost annually around the world in road accidents and more than 90% of them are due to human error.
Mastering and measuring 'big data' – to map poverty from space or use mobile phones to track food security – could boost evidence-based decision-making at local and global levels and drive the implementation of all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the United Nations telecommunications agency said today.
