Risky Business: Tapping AI to Assess and Limit Risk in M&A

Assessing risk is a concern in most industries, although perhaps never more so than following a merger or acquisition. It turns out AI may be just the tool to help. GPU Technology Conference attendees last month got a high-level education in how AI can bring speed and precision to this process from Congruity360, a Massachusetts-based Read article >

Crowning Achievement: Using Adversarial Networks to Create Customized Dental Caps

It wasn’t long ago that dental crowns were produced on assembly lines, with rows of workers engaged in the physical effort of building and shaping them. To make that process faster, more precise and, ultimately, less expensive, dental product maker Glidewell Laboratories has been building a deep learning environment for designing and manufacturing crowns, also Read article >

AI Think I Can: Why GPUs May Be the Engine That Could Lead Us to Autonomous Trains

Trains could be first out of the station to earn bragging rights as a fully autonomous form of transportation. That’s because — unlike passenger vehicles or long-haul trucks — trains move on tracks, making them easier to control. Autonomous trains were a hot topic at last month’s GPU Technology Conference last week, with speakers at Read article >

Robot See, Robot Do: Bots Learn by Watching Human Behavior

Robots following coded instructions to complete a task? Old school. Robots learning to do things by watching how humans do it? That’s the future. Stanford’s Animesh Garg and Marynel Vázquez shared their research in a talk on “Generalizable Autonomy for Robotic Mobility and Manipulation” at the GPU Technology Conference last week. In lay terms, generalizable Read article >
