Artificial Intelligence and Real People – For a long time, people have wondered how robots would affect society. Would robots be our servants, Would robots take our jobs? Care for our aging parents? Rapid advances in deep learning algorithms and neural networks, coupled with powerful supercomputers, are creating programs that appear to “think” – but not like us.
Scott Tilley, professor in the Department of Education and Interdisciplinary Studies with the College of Science at the Florida Institute of Technology, will share some exciting insights into Artificial Intelligence.
Environmental Intelligence – Meteorological satellites are assets to the nations they serve – aiding in severe weather prediction and navigation.
Current fleets of weather satellites are undergoing a transformation to the new generation – launching with sensors that significantly increase imagery resolution and speed, and expand content. The sensors will enable improved severe weather monitoring and warnings.
However, with the sensor transformation, the infrastructure to ingest, process, and distribute the flood of data must transform simultaneously.
Micheline Harriger is an Environmental Solutionsstrategist at Harris Corporation, driving solutions that enable weather and climate intelligence.
The Internet-Of-Things is projected to significantly transform our daily world within the next 10 years.
It will be a world of small-footprint sensors and switches everywhere, leveraging the Internet to pump massive data streams to the cloud, coupled with smart software to track, predict, and react in real-time. The projected scale of the economic impact is $1.9 trillion.
