These $300 yoga pants are powered by machine learning

  • Whitehouse’s first product that’s available for people to actually purchase is NadiX yoga pants.
  • The pants have five sensors sewn in to help the wearer improve form for 30 different yoga poses.
  • While Whitehouse is careful not to say that the pants help “correct” a yoga pose, they can sense if a person’s pose is way out of whack.
  • “Yoga pants get stretched, get sweated in….the sensors had to be invisible, and the pants had to not be a tech-looking product.
  • Moir said they won’t mine or store individualized data but will collect topline data like whether someone is a heavy user of NadiX or if their pants aren’t working.

Wearable X’s NadiX yoga pants give vibrational feedback for 30 yoga poses.

Goldman Sachs

WATCH: This #CES2017, find out why #AI is the apex technology of the Information Age:

  • Daniela Costa of Goldman Sachs Research explains how new technologies have the potential to make for a more efficient manufacturing sector, yielding over $500 billion in savings.
  • Weâ re going from a world where people give machines rules to a world where people give machines problems and the machines learn how to solve them on their own.
  • The history of artificial intelligence is littered with false starts, but Goldman Sachs Researchâ s Heath Terry says weâ ve reached a turning point that will put the technology within reach across sectors.
  • Having already made the leap from military to consumer use, drones are headed for industries from construction to cinematography to law enforcement.

Grandma, machine learning and the internet of things

Grandma, #AI, #machinelearning and #IoT  via @graphcoreai

  • Machine learning systems wouldn’t just make life easier for healthcare professionals or the elderly.
  • Having a machine learning system that would help elderly people lead healthy, independent lifestyles in a supportive and appropriate way could change their lives.
  • Machine learning systems would allow healthcare workers to use their time more efficiently, focusing on proactive and needs-based treatment.
  • A leader in this field of context aware machine learning systems is Sentiance who has built an advanced machine learning system that can be used to monitor health and activity in our normal lives.
  • Healthcare is a public good, and machine learning makes it possible to improve outcomes not just for our Grandmas, but for the aging population in general and the institutions, people and governments who support them.

What role does AI and machine learning have to play in a world with an ageing population? This article explores the issues.

Google used DeepMind AI to cut its power bill

Google used DeepMind #AI to cut its power bill

  • Google used DeepMind AI to cut its power bill
  • Google’s grand experiment in using artificial intelligence to save power is paying off.
  • Comcast’s Rio portal is a good way to keep up with the Olympics
  • It’s not certain just how much energy the smart code is saving, but Google used slightly over 4.4 gigawatt-hours in 2014 alone — even a small dent in that consumption could easily save hundreds of millions of dollars.
  • You may soon see Google and its partners using AI for loads of routine tasks where humans are frequently wasteful.
