AI is revolutionizing neuromarketing

  • In recent years, AI has offered a huge boost to neuromarketing — the science of reading consumers’ minds to gauge their reactions to marketing stimuli.
  • When combined with AI-based facial recognition, biometric insights can offer even more accurate data about consumers’ responses to marketing messaging.
  • IBM’s Watson — the company’s computer system that answers questions delivered in natural language — doesn’t use biometric data to gauge the excitement at an event.
  • What makes these methods more than merely interesting is the fact that they provide the means to obtain data about consumers’ emotional reactions in real time and adjust marketing messages accordingly.
  • Once AI is fully adopted in neuromarketing processes, marketers will have the ability to call on consumers to crowdsource their marketing campaigns without the fear of collecting unreliable data.

An unfortunate fact about humanity is that people lie. While this is a chronic issue for human relations, it’s one that may be less of an issue for marketers of the future, thanks to non-human intervention.

Google releases new TensorFlow Object Detection API

  • Google is releasing a new TensorFlow object detection API to make it easier for developers and researchers to identify objects within images.
  • Google is trying to offer the best of simplicity and performance — the models being released today have performed well in benchmarking and have become regularly used in research.
  • The handful of models included in the detection API include heavy duty inception-based convolutional neural networks and streamlined models designed to operate on less sophisticated machines — a MobileNets single shot detector comes optimized to run in real-time on a smartphone.
  • Earlier this week Google announced its MobileNets family of lightweight computer vision models.
  • Google, Facebook and Apple have been pouring resources into these mobile models.

Dubai is introducing robotic policemen, to make up 25% of the force by 2030

Robotic policemen will make up 25% of Dubai's police force by 2030  #AI

  • On Wednesday, May 24, Dubai will launch a new police robot that marks the first phase of the integration of robots into the police force.
  • This modified version of the REEM robot (Designed by PAL robotics and unveiled in 2011) is capable of feeding video to a command center, forwarding reported crimes to police, settling fines, facial recognition, and speaking nine languages.
  • Dubai hopes robots will constitute 25 percent of its police force by 2030, with the next stage being to use them as receptionists in police stations.
  • Brigadier Khalid Nasser Alrazooqi, General Director of Dubai Police’s Smart Services Department, told CNN that they eventually want to release a “fully-functional robot that can work as [a] normal police officer.”
  • In February, China started using the AnBot that uses facial recognition to identify criminals and is capable of following them until the police arrive.

    Apple’s reportedly working on a new kind of chip — potentially for future iOS devices — that’ll be used just for processing AI, Bloomberg reports.

  • By moving AI processing to a dedicated chip, battery life in devices could also see a boost since the main CPU and GPU wouldn’t be crunching as much data and gobbling as much power.
  • The report says Apple plans to integrate the chip into its devices, but it’s unclear when that’ll happen, and if any iOS devices launching this year will have it.
  • Apple’s AirPods also have a custom W1 chip that helps with pairing them to iOS devices.
  • If the future is AI everywhere (and it definitely looks like that’s where things are headed), it’s in Apple’s best interests to control the stack (like it always does) with its own AI chip.

A new Bloomberg report says Apple’s working on a new chip, called the Apple Neural Engine, that’s devoted to processing AI.
