- AI that scans a construction site can spot when things are falling behindby Will Heaven on 16th October 2020 at 3:30 pm
Construction sites are vast jigsaws of people and parts that must be pieced together just so at just the right times. As projects get larger, mistakes and delays get more expensive. The consultancy Mckinsey estimates that on-site mismanagement costs the construction industry $1.6 trillion a year. But typically you might only have five managers overseeing…
- A radical new technique lets AI learn with practically no databy Karen Hao on 16th October 2020 at 9:00 am
Machine learning typically requires tons of examples. To get an AI model to recognize a horse, you need to show it thousands of images of horses. This is what makes the technology computationally expensive—and very different from human learning. A child often needs to see just a few examples of an object, or even only…
