AI Podcast: Booz Allen Hamilton Enlists AI to Help Protect Soldiers

Soldiers face life and death situations every day, but the data scientists at Booz Allen Hamilton are determined to reduce the risks with the help of AI.

“The days of us sending soldiers forward into the field alone are over,” said Aaron Sant-Miller, lead data scientist at Booz Allen Hamilton, a management and consulting firm.

AI Feast at CVPR: NVIDIA Brings New Tensor Core GPU AI Tools, Super SloMo, Cutting-Edge Research

As thousands of the world’s top artificial intelligence researchers gathered this week in Salt Lake City for the annual Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition conference, NVIDIA unveiled a series of tools and deep learning research to fuel the next big wave of AI discovery.

AI Storms Top Supercomputing Show – NVIDIA Brings Talks, Training, Demos, and More to ISC

This is what smart people do for fun.

Detecting gravitational waves millions of light years away, in real time. Powering computationally fast quantum mechanical simulations at high accuracy and low cost. Proving the feasibility of fusion as a source of renewable clean energy.

Of course, it doesn’t take a supercomputer to figure out that high-performance computing is much more than just fun. Thanks to AI, HPC now matters more than ever.

Shock and Awe in Utah: NVIDIA CEO Springs Special Titan V GPUs on Elite AI Researchers

Some come to Utah to ascend mountain peaks, others to ski down them.

At the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition conference in Salt Lake City Wednesday, NVIDIA’s Jensen Huang told top AI researchers he wanted to help them achieve a very different kind of peak performance — before unveiling a big surprise.

Veo’s AI Camera Brings World Cup-Like Analysis to Weekend Warriors

While the best soccer players on the planet take to the pitch in this summer’s World Cup, amateur coaches can reach for the stars by adding AI to their playbooks.

Veo, a Copenhagen-based startup, has created a camera for its users to place midway on a soccer field touchline (that’s the “sideline” for U.S. readers) that captures the action across the entire field. The company is using its own object-detection model to track movement of the soccer ball to follow the game play.

NVIDIA Chief Scientist Bill Dally on How GPUs Ignited AI, and Where His Team’s Headed Next

Bill Dally has been working on neural networks since before they were cool.

Dally, chief scientist at NVIDIA, is an icon in the deep learning world. A prolific researcher with more than 150 patents, he previously chaired Stanford University’s computer science department.

Dally sat down with AI podcast host Noah Kravitz to share his reflections on artificial intelligence — a field he’s been working in for decades, which has had a renaissance thanks to GPU-driven deep learning. AI, he says, is “going to transform almost every aspect of human life.”

Brain Power: How AI Can Head Off Brain Damage

Two million cells a minute. That’s how quickly brain damage happen when the cells get no oxygen in a stroke or in some brain injuries.

Both can have tragic consequences — paralysis, memory loss, speech difficulties and even death. But doctors can’t start treatment without an initial diagnosis, and that requires reading a CT scan as soon as the test’s completed.

SoundHound Digs Deeper Into Voice AI Market

SoundHound is learning some new AI tricks.

The Silicon Valley startup, which creates AI-based voice services, has fetched $100 million in strategic investment capital as it expands its offerings.

In addition to its eponymous music recognition app, SoundHound offers its Hound voice search app and Houndify voice platform for companies to create AI-powered voice services. The company’s tech has become the de facto alternative for voice search in a market crowded with the industry’s biggest players.

Making Ultrasounds Ultra-Speedy with Deep Learning

Abdominal ultrasound tests for organ abnormalities haven’t changed much in the past decade, with a doctor moving a wand over the patient’s abdomen to gaze at blurry images. But the process could get accelerated by a thousand times with improved accuracy, based on deep learning work by U.S. researchers.

Tests typically take around half an hour. That may not seem like a long time, but given that hospitals do thousands of these scans every year, they end up spending massive amounts of time providing this procedure when they could be seeing more patients.

NVIDIA Opening AI Research Lab in Toronto, Following Move in Seattle

Toronto is a thriving hub for AI experts, thanks in part to foundational work out of the University of Toronto and government-supported research organizations like the Vector Institute.
