Xerox-backed field service startup CareAR raises $10M

Care AR

Customer expectations and needs are on the rise, exacerbating the challenge for companies facing a higher volume of customer requests during the pandemic. The issue is acute in field service work, where employees have to work on equipment with varying technical specifications — often in confined, bandwidth-constrained, and hard-to-reach spaces. In a recent survey by The Service Council, over 90% of field workers said that more knowledge is required to service modern products while nearly 70% said that products are more complex today.

The role of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in Space Exploration and future prospects

Space exploration

The secrets of space and its undiscovered regions have long captivated us. However, thanks to advances in artificial intelligence technologies, we can now explore space in more depth than ever before. Artificial intelligence plays an important role in a variety of elements of space travel. It may be used for a wide range of operations, from high-level decision-making to low-level data processing and everything in between.

[Paper] Google Researchers enable Transformers to solve compositional NLP Tasks

Compositional generalization is the capacity to understand and produce novel combinations of known language components to make “infinite use of finite means.” While this is second nature for humans, classical AI techniques such as grammar or search-based systems have also demonstrated this ability in the field of natural language processing (NLP). State-of-the-art deep learning architectures such as transformers however struggle with capturing the compositional structures in natural language, and thus fail to generalize compositionally.

[Paper] MIT & Google Quantum Algorithm trains wide and deep Neural Networks

Quantum algorithms for training wide and classical neural networks have become one of the most promising research areas for quantum computer applications. While neural networks have achieved state-of-the-art results across many benchmark tasks, existing quantum neural networks have yet to clearly demonstrate quantum speedups for tasks involving classical datasets. Given deep learning’s ever-rising computational requirements, the use of quantum computers to efficiently train deep neural networks is a research field that could greatly benefit from further exploration.

IoT, AI and ML services to grow by US$3.6 billion till 2026

AI, IOT Market

Research by ABI showed that artificial intelligence and machine learning are expected to grow within the Internet of things domain by US$3.6 billion by the end of 2026. Since IoT analytics are about to converge with the big data domain, the value in the technology is predicted to shift beyond hardware to analytics adding value to the services. The report states that Covid-19 didn’t have any negative impacts on the IoT data analytics but has been advantageous to the emerging cloud-native data-enabled analytics.
