An AI-enabled system for detecting social distance breaches

A team of researchers developed an AI-empowered video surveillance system used to observe and inform social distancing breaches without compromising privacy.They demonstrated it by keeping image processing gated to a local network of cameras, thereby outdoing the necessity to store sensitive data in a central server. They conducted the case study at Gold Coast Airport which, pre-COVID-19 had 6.5 million passengers annually with 17,000 passengers on-site daily. Hundreds of cameras cover 290,000 square meters with hundreds of shops and more than 40 check-in points. Experimenters lightweight and cutting-edge algorithms for…

Machine learning applications do not need a huge amount of data for learning

A group of researchers from the University of British Columbia has discovered that some machine learning applications can learn from less data. They published their paper in the journal “nature machine intelligence”. The team interprets the testing they performed with machine learning applications created to predict certain types of molecular structures. In this new effort, researchers found that machine learning applications such as spotting people in photographs do not need huge amounts of data to be useful. The discovery paves the way towards the scope to develop more machine learning…

Mixed precision approach for modelling large geospatial datasets

The international team of researchers could speed up the modelling of large geospatial datasets with benchmark accuracy when implemented on a computing system based on highly parallelized graphics processor units. Computers can perform large calculations in a short time. But due to the constraint on the way the digital system stores data, calculation resulting in a longer sequence of digits will be curtailed. Accumulation of precision errors in geospatial datasets can lead to faulty modelling outcomes. The latest development in the field seems to be an elegant solution for this…
