Artificial Intelligence for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy - 6 Current Applications

Artificial Intelligence for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy – 6 Current Applications

The U.S. Energy Information Agency (EIA) defines renewable energy as an energy source that naturally regenerates, such as solar or wind. In contrast, fossil fuels are considered finite. The EIA reports that in 2016, 10 percent of all energy consumed in the U.S. was derived from renewable energy sources. This is equivalent to roughly “10.2 quadrillion British thermal units (Btu) —1 quadrillion is the number 1 followed by 15 zeros”.

Modeling Biology with Machine Learning - with Turbine.ai's CEO Kristóf Zsolt Szalay

Modeling Biology with Artificial Intelligence – with Turbine.ai’s CTO Kristóf Zsolt Szalay

Episode Summary: This episode explores the ways in which artificial intelligence has the potential to revolutionize the field of medicine. This week's guest, Turbine.ai's Dr. Kristóf Zsolt Szalay speaks to this topic, discussing research that hopes to create automated learning networks and algorithms designed to predict the development of human cells in response to drugs. This technological innovation would make it possible for near-instantaneous simulations to be run, allowing optimal combinations and optimal doses of drugs to be pinpointed and distributed to patients.

Surgical Robotics and AI - What's Possible Today?

Machine Learning in Surgical Robotics – 4 Applications That Matter

The application of robotics in surgery has steadily grown since it began in the 1980s. In contrast, the integration of artificial intelligence in this sector is still fairly new. As promising applications, predominantly in the research and development phase, begin to the surface we aim to answer the important questions that business leaders are asking today:

AI for Theft Prevention and Process Adherence - with Alan from Everseen

AI for Theft Prevention and Process Adherence – with Alan O’Herlihy from Everseen

Episode summary: In this episode, we speak with Alan O'Herlihy, Founder and CEO of Ireland-based Everseen. Alan speaks to us about how machine vision systems can be used to detect theft or mistakes at a checkout counter (including forgetting to scan items, customers intentionally hiding items, and more). Alan not only explains where these technologies are in use today, but he also breaks down some of his own predictions about what these computer vision systems might make possible in the workplace of tomorrow.
