Vehicle safety is one of the major areas in which automakers are making considerable investments. Automobile manufacturers have created a number of technologies that can aid in the prevention of traffic accidents over the years. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are technologies that automate, facilitate, and improve vehicular systems to assist drivers in safe and better driving (ADAS).

What is ADAS Technology?

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are technological safety measures that help drivers prevent on-road incidents by alerting them to potential risks. This allows the driver to quickly regain control of their vehicle, boosting their capacity to react to road hazards.

As we approach 2021, we can observe how far the world of sports has progressed. While statistics have always played an important role in sports, artificial intelligence (AI) has had a huge impact on audience engagement, game strategy, and the way games are played today. We can see that data analytics and artificial intelligence are being employed extensively in sports.

The application of AI in sports has become a common sight in the last few years. …


Workers at construction and mining sites deal with a variety of duties that necessitate surveillance and supervision on a daily basis. They must also ensure that their construction tasks are carried out safely on site. While artificial intelligence and augmented reality are altering the business, computer vision and data annotation have the potential to fix some of the industry’s current problems and revitalize the sector. Some of the major issues in construction and mining include struck‐by accidents, continuous monitoring of unsafe conditions, quality and defect inspection, monitoring of site activities, and more.

Computer vision has enormous potential in the construction…


Can you imagine an industry that involves more challenges than agriculture? You reap what you sow, they say. But what they forget to add is “if you’re lucky.” When the weather strikes or crops get affected by the disease, farmers can hardly talk about yields. Or when a global pandemic hits, all of a sudden it gets harder to manage various processes because most are not digital.

At the same time, the global population is growing, and urbanization is continuing. Disposable income is rising, and consumption habits are changing. Farmers are under a lot of pressure to meet the increasing…


The value of machine learning in healthcare is its ability to process huge data sets beyond the scope of human capability, and then reliably convert analysis of that data into clinical insights that aid physicians in planning and providing care, ultimately leading to better outcomes, lower costs of care, and increased patient satisfaction.

If your ultimate goal is to train machine learning models, there are few differences between annotating a medical image versus a regular PNG or JPEG. Radiologists annotate or markup medical images on a daily basis. This can be done in DICOM viewers, which contain basic annotation capabilities…


Augmented Reality (AR) is a digital media that allows the user to integrate virtual context into the physical environment in an interactive multidimensional way. AR software derives information about the surrounding environment from cameras and sensors. Implementing AI enhances the AR experience by allowing deep neural networks to replace traditional computer vision approaches, and add new features such as object detection, text analysis, and scene labeling.

AR and VR are often discussed interchangeably or in the same circles, but it’s important to distinguish their differences. So first, let’s establish what these terms mean.

  • AR: Augmented Reality — this is any…

A chatbot is a piece of software that has been programmed to conduct a conversation. We can think of chatbots as Natural Language Processing systems that can respond to human communication. This communication can be via different modes like text, voice, or a combination of the two.

A chatbot is an AI-powered software that can effectively communicate with people in a lucid and intelligent manner. A chatbot stimulates communication through messaging applications, websites, mobile apps, or smartphone assistants like Ok Google or Siri. Thus, a chatbot represents the closest interface of communication between a man and a machine.

Training a new driver is straightforward and makes them practice until they can master basic skills well enough to pass a driver’s license exam. But there are no such tests for Self Driving Cars, leaving it up to developers to decide when their technology is safe enough to deploy.

This means that for a vehicle to be truly capable of driving without human control or even with limited human intervention, autonomous systems must essentially be taught to understand the stimuli presented in real-time, requiring many different neural networks to work together, performing many different perceptions tasks that our brain is…


Facial recognition is a way of recognizing a human face through technology. A facial recognition system uses biometrics to map facial features from a photograph or video. It compares the information with a database of known faces to find a match.

Most people can recognize about 5,000 faces, and it takes a human 0.2 seconds to recognize a specific one. We also interpret facial expressions and detect emotions automatically. In other words, we’re naturally good at facial recognition and analysis. But, in recent years, Computer Vision has been catching up and in some cases outperforming humans in facial recognition.

Artificial Intelligence boosts productivity saves time and increases efficiency when applied across industries. In retail, the story is no different. AI is already being used by savvy retailers to improve productivity and profitability. Retail business owners are investing in cutting-edge technologies, including Artificial Intelligence, robotics, data analytics, and logistics automation, becoming more customer-centric and responsive to demands in the industry.

The Retail Industry today is more fragmented and competitive than ever before. The aim of AI technologies seems to be to enhance the shopping experience by providing convenience or increasing engagement. Brands and business leaders need to be aware of…
