Nuro gets a leg up from Arm in launching its third-generation delivery robot

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI, transportation

“We create the lowest power performance technology,” said Dipti Vachani, senior VP and general manager for Arm’s automotive business, in an interview, “so that Nuro can then take advantage of all that AI software.”

Nuro was founded in 2016 by Dave Ferguson and Jiajun Zhu, two veterans of the Google self-driving car project that would go on to become Waymo. It is one of the few companies operating fully driverless vehicles — that is, vehicles without safety drivers behind the wheel — on public roads today.

Moon landing LIVE: Watch Intuitive Machines’ Odysseus lander

Posted by in categories: business, space

Houston-based company Intuitive Machines’ lunar lander, nicknamed Odysseus, attempts landing on the surface of the moon. A smooth touchdown would put the U.S. back in business on the moon for the first time since NASA astronauts closed out the Apollo program in 1972. The company, if successful, would become the first private outfit to ace a moon landing. #moonlanding #odysseus #intuitivemachines #nasa #IM1 #space #live #livestream.

Selling with Personality: Leveraging Human Characteristics in Product Design

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI

If electronics tried selling themselves by speaking to you, would you have a greater urge to buy them? This is what a recent study published in Decision Support Systems hopes to address as a research duo investigated how artificial intelligence (AI) could be used as a productive marketing and retail tool for selling their products. This study holds the potential to help researchers, businesses, and consumers better understand how AI can be sold using anthromorphism (possessing human attributes).

“Companies have long used cartoon-like characters to sell products. We are familiar with the ‘M&M spokescandies’, for example,” said Dr. Alan Dennis, who is a Professor of Information Systems in the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University and co-author on the study. “But adding human features to a product can be a powerful way to influence consumers’ perceptions and decision making, because it can trigger anthromorphism.”

For the study, the researchers enlisted approximately 50 undergraduate students and asked them to pretend they were new master’s degree students who needed a new television, camera, or laptop for their studies. Using an eBay-style auction website, the students then bid on the products after watching a two-minute video exhibiting a speaker with human attributes which described the product. The goal of the study was to ascertain how much the students were willing to bid on the products with the video compared to products without, all while using an Emotiv EPOC EEG headset to gather data on their brain activity.

Posted by in categories: business, cybercrime/malcode, robotics/AI, sustainability

The Cactus ransomware gang claims they stole 1.5TB of data from Schneider Electric after breaching the company’s network last month.

25MB of allegedly stolen were also leaked on the operation’s dark web leak site today as proof of the threat actor’s claims, together with snapshots showing several American citizens’ passports and non-disclosure agreement document scans.

As BleepingComputer first reported, the ransomware group gained access to the energy management and automation giant’s Sustainability Business division on January 17th.

The Biggest AI Trends In The Next 10 Years

Posted by in categories: business, internet, robotics/AI

Although I like to write about future predictions for the world of technology and business, I’m usually focused on what’s coming up in the next five years.


But it’s also worth taking a longer view. I believe that in 10 years’ time, the AI that’s a part of everyday life will be as far evolved from today’s AI as today’s internet is from the internet of the early days.

In his excellent book The Coming Wave, Mustafa Suleyman notes that every wave of technology-driven change – from the combustion engine to the internet – has revolutionized society in a shorter time span than the previous wave. So, I don’t think we’ll have to wait 30 or even 20 years until AI is utterly engrained in all aspects of life.
