Of course, many of us may already know what CES is and what it stands for. For the sake of those who may be reading this and may not be that familiar with tech. CES is the world’s leading and most prominent technology event that happens yearly. Over the past few years, the event has been known to serve as a testing ground for new technologies and worldwide innovators. Asides from taking the stage and showcasing new tech products while the world watches, it’s also a place where the world’s most recognized brands conduct business, meet new partners and the brightest innovators. The CES is owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). All facet of technology is showcased at the show, from Manufacturers, developers, suppliers of consumer technology products, content, technology delivery systems and more, all are duly represented at the CES event. Items are presented by Exhibitors in all areas of consumer technology which includes 5G connectivity, artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, smart cities, sports, robotics, you name it. In this article, we would be discussing the top AI announcements that were made at the just concluded CES 2022.
Nvidia unveils automotive AI technology
Ever heard of the Nvidia Corporation, yes they are the company responsible for designing graphics processing units for the gaming and professional markets, as well as system on chip units for the mobile computing and automotive market. At the recently concluded tech event, the company emphasized its DRIVE Hyperion 8 platform, noting that more and more firms are beginning to embrace the computer architecture and sensors, which was first revealed in November. According to the company, the AI platform has 12 surround cameras, nine radars, 12 ultrasonic sensors, a front-facing lidar, and three interior-sensing cameras. The Hyperion 8 platform is being powered by Nvidia’s DRIVE Orin SoC. According to Kani, a representative of the company, he says “Creating an autonomous car necessitates a completely new platform architecture and software development methodology.” Kani explained that “Both the hardware and software must be thoroughly tested and certified to guarantee that they can withstand the rigours of daily driving while meeting the high safety and security requirements of an automated vehicle.”
Nvidia is also hoping that in order for the US logistics industry to deal with and overcome supply disruptions caused by pandemics, there is a great need for the industry to adopt its DRIVE Orin platform. According to the company, DRIVE Origin could go a long way in helping autonomous trucking businesses fill a projected shortage of over 140,000 drivers in the United States by 2027.
Avalanche Computing’s new low code AI tool
A Taiwanese tech and hyper-scale computing company that goes by the name Avalanche Computing has launched a new low-code AI tool called hAIsten AI. At CES 2022, the tech company showcased how enterprises can take advantage of the platform to train AI models with just a single click and without coding. Avalanche computing has revealed that the hAIsten AI uses multi-GPUs to accelerate AI development while reducing the AI development cycle to a few months. Many firms who do not budget resources for recruiting top people, like data scientists, engineers, domain experts, and managers, to develop AI and hire engineers for the deployment of their AI models – would the most to benefit from it. The new AI tool is compatible with AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, as well as NVIDIA, Qualcomm, and OpenVino hardware, and it offers AI model training and deployment on both cloud and edge devices.
Bosch and Highmark Health announce collaboration at CES 2022 for pediatric pulmonary research
Bosch and Highmark Health have reached an agreement to utilize novel sensor technologies in a bid to use AI for the detection of juvenile pulmonary disorders such as asthma. The planned study ultimately relies on the practice of doctors making use of a stethoscope next to a patient’s chest to detect aberrant audio patterns. While a representative of Bosch was discussing the alliance, the person says “Highmark Health and Bosch are leveraging AI-enabled sensor technology to listen and recognise audio cues that could help with patient diagnostics.” “These AI practice is said to have the potential to improve patient-centric, at-home care by allowing audio AI-based diagnostic data to be transmitted to a clinician for further study and action.”
INFINIQ unveiled several AI innovations at CES 2022
INFINIQ, is a company specialized in AI and self-driving data service solutions, debuted its ground-breaking autonomous driving and retail innovation technologies at the world’s most prominent tech exhibition, to a standing ovation from over 180,000 guests. The much talked about data anonymisation service which goes by the name Wellid, this service has been said will analyses visual data in such a way that it cannot be recognized. Faces and licenses plates can be anonymised, which is necessary to comply with worldwide privacy standards such as GDPR, the AI Act, the CCPA, and the CPRA. Well, its numerous capabilities commanded the attention of various AI companies at CES 2022. The device is optimized for retail services such as 24-hour stores, unmanned stores, and self-checkout counters. INFINIQ has already fielded inquiries from global retail companies.
ITRI Introduces innovations in AI, robotics, and ICT at CES 2022
ITRI, a winner of the CES 2022 Innovation Awards, has introduced the RGB-D AI Robot. This AI innovation which is the world’s first collaborative robot has a built-in 3D vision. On a robotic arm, the clever 3D vision sensing technology acts as a pair of human eyes. When the RGB-D AI Robot is compared to other robots, it reduces the size of the sensor by 168 times while boosting the sensing speed by 38.6 times. According to an online source, the clever 3D vision sensing technology has the ability to automatically scan the object area in three dimensions and provide immediate and coordinated support to the robotic arm as it identifies the proper angle where objects are picked up based on the positioning and shape of the object. The manufacturing and transportation industries have been identified as industries that have the potential to use the RGB-D AI Robot to practice sorting and packing of products for smart automation, while it also has potential use in retail or service businesses and healthcare to serve customers directly.
