The Amazing Ways Ocado Uses Artificial Intelligence And Tech To Transform The Grocery Industry

the amazing ways ocado uses artificial intelligence and tech to transform the grocery industry

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

While many know UK company Ocado as an online grocery retailer, it’s really one of the most innovative tech companies in the world. Ocado was founded in 2000 as an entirely online experience and therefore never had a brick-and-mortar store to serve its customers, who number 580,000 each day. Its technology expertise came about out of necessity as it began to build the software and hardware it needed to be efficient, productive, and competitive. Today, Ocado uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in many ways throughout its business.

From Online Retailer to Ocado Technology
Since 2000, Ocado tried to piece together the technology they needed to succeed by purchasing products off the shelf. They quickly realized these off-the-shelf solutions weren’t suitable for the unique demands of an online grocery, so they set out to build the hardware and software they needed. Today, the Ocado Smart Platform runs end-to-end e-commerce and is being sold to other brick-and-mortar grocery retailers such as Canadian grocer Sobey’s, French retailer Groupe Casino, Aeon in Japan, Kroger in the United States, ICA in Sweden, and others around the world.

Trust levels in AI predicted by people’s relationship style

trust levels in ai predicted by people’s relationship style

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

A University of Kansas interdisciplinary team led by relationship psychologist Omri Gillath has published a new paper in the journal Computers in Human Behavior showing people’s trust in artificial intelligence (AI) is tied to their relationship or attachment style.
The research indicates for the first time that people who are anxious about their relationships with humans tend to have less trust in AI as well. Importantly, the research also suggests trust in artificial intelligence can be increased by reminding people of their secure relationships with other humans.
Grand View Research estimated the global artificial-intelligence market at $39.9 billion in 2019, projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 42.2% from 2020 to 2027. However, lack of trust remains a key obstacle to adopting new artificial intelligence technologies.
The new research by Gillath and colleagues suggests new ways to boost trust in artificial intelligence.
In three studies, attachment style, thought to play a central role in romantic and parent-child relationships, was shown also to affect people’s trust in artificial intelligence. Some of the research’s key findings:People’s attachment anxiety predicts less trust in artificial intelligence. Enhancing attachment anxiety reduced trust in artificial intelligence.

How the Army plans to revolutionize tanks with artificial intelligence

how the army plans to revolutionize tanks with artificial intelligence

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Even as the U.S. Army attempts to integrate cutting edge technologies into its operations, many of its platforms remain fundamentally in the 20th century. Take tanks, for example. The way tank crews operate their machine has gone essentially unchanged over the last 40 years. At a time when the military is obsessed with robotics, artificial intelligence and next generation networks, operating a tank relies entirely on manual inputs from highly trained operators. “Currently, tank crews use a very manual process to detect, identify and engage targets,” explained Abrams Master Gunner Sgt. 1st Class Dustin Harris. “Tank commanders and gunners are manually slewing, trying to detect targets using their sensors. Once they come across a target they have to manually select the ammunition that they’re going to use to service that target, laz the target to get an accurate range to it, and a few other factors.” The process has to be repeated for each target. “That can take time,” he added. “Everything is done manually still.” On the 21st century battlefield, it’s an anachronism.

Australians have low trust in artificial intelligence and want it to be better regulated

australians have low trust in artificial intelligence and want it to be better regulated

Every day we are likely to interact with some form of artificial intelligence (AI). It works behind the scenes in everything from social media and traffic navigation apps to product recommendations and virtual assistants.

AI systems can perform tasks or make predictions, recommendations or decisions that would usually require human intelligence. Their objectives are set by humans but the systems act without explicit human instructions.
As AI plays a greater role in our lives both at work and at home, questions arise. How willing are we to trust AI systems? And what are our expectations for how AI should be deployed and managed?
To find out, we surveyed a nationally representative sample of more than 2,500 Australians in June and July 2020. Our report, produced with KPMG and led by Nicole Gillespie, shows Australians on the whole don’t know a lot about how AI is used, have little trust in AI systems, and believe it should be carefully regulated.
Most accept or tolerate AI, few approve or embrace it
Trust is central to the widespread acceptance and adoption of AI. However, our research suggests the Australian public is ambivalent about trusting AI systems.
Nearly half of our respondents (45%) are unwilling …

Deep learning pioneer Yoshua Bengio has provocative ideas about the future of AI.

Maryse Boyce, IEEE Spectrum

For the first part of this article series, see here.
The field of artificial intelligence moves fast. It has only been 8 years since the modern era of deep learning began at the 2012 ImageNet competition. Progress in the field since then has been breathtaking and relentless.
If anything, this breakneck pace is only accelerating. Five years from now, the field of AI will look very different than it does today. Methods that are currently considered cutting-edge will have become outdated; methods that today are nascent or on the fringes will be mainstream.

What will the next generation of artificial intelligence look like? Which novel AI approaches will unlock currently unimaginable possibilities in technology and business?
My previous column covered three emerging areas within AI that are poised to redefine the field—and society—in the years ahead. This article will cover three more.

COPAN’s PhenoMATRIX™ Fuses the Power of Artificial Intelligence and Culture for Highly Sensitive GBS Detection Using Breakthrough Reading Algorithm

copan’s phenomatrix™ fuses the power of artificial intelligence and culture for highly sensitive gbs detection using breakthrough reading algorithm

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

“COPAN’s PhenoMATRIX™ not only was able to detect more true positive cultures than manual review of digital culture images, but it shows that chromogenic cultures together with artificial intelligence algorithms can detect GBS colonization with the same high sensitivity as molecular detection systems,” said COPAN Diagnostics’ Scientific Director Dr. Susan Sharp. 
The study, which was published on October 21, 2020, evaluated the performance of the PhenoMatrix™ Chromogenic Detection Module digital imaging software’s ability to detect GBS from LIM broth plated on bioMérieux’s CHROMID® Strepto B at two clinical laboratories. After 48 hours of incubation, the sensitivity of COPAN’s PhenoMATRIX™ was similar to the BD MAX™ GBS molecular test — 95.5% to 96.8% respectively — and significantly higher than manual at 90.3%.2Another noteworthy discovery was that COPAN’s software never inaccurately called a culture that was determined to be a positive a negative, and it identified an additional eight true positive specimens that were missed by manual reading.  This finding establishes that the innovative PhenoMATRIX™ AI, plus classic culture, is quite the powerful combination at a fraction of the cost of molecular testing. “COPAN’s AI software, along with the use of chromogenic agars has made our decades-old agar culture for the detection of pathogens ‘new’ again,” Sharp added. PhenoMATRIX™ …
