IoT Data Fuels Efficient Public Transportation in Brussels Executives at Brussels Intercommunal Transport Company haven’t always given data the respect it deserves. When Rob Roemers took over as Head of Data and Analytics, his goal was to open their eyes and change their minds. Roemers defined quick-win business use cases that proved IoT data and analytics saved the organization money and made riders happy. Slowly but surely, the culture is changing as more people realize the power of data.  
New Podcast: Buying and Selling IoT Market-Ready Solutions For solution integrators to succeed in the wild frontier of the IoT ecosystem, they often need to start with vetted, pre-built solutions. Using repeatable solutions vs. starting from scratch can help data-driven, edge computing projects get off the ground faster–and generate value sooner. To see how that’s done, our editors checked in with an expert in AI and IoT market-ready solutions, Intel’s Rob Risany. Hear Risany’s advice for solution integrators who are grappling with the often-asked question: should we buy or build?     
AI Aids Wildlife Conservation Efforts Artificial intelligence is a game-changer for wildlife conservation. Tracking wild animals in the field can be a slow and dangerous endeavor. An AI-based image identification solution enables researchers to process vast amounts of data and better understand dozens of wild species and their environment.  
Technology Advances Improve Organ Transplant Success Rates Organ transplants are risky, and a dearth of available organs make success rates that much more critical. Artificial intelligence and cloud computing are pushing innovation in donor-matching techniques, predicting organ graft success, and reducing transplant rejection rates.  
Data Analytics Help Prevent Loan Fraud Financial fraud can cripple lenders. Battling scammers takes a toll, not only from the loss of money loaned, but also from the time spent trying to separate true customers from false applicants. Artificial intelligence and machine learning can help lenders protect themselves against scam artists.  
New Podcast: Beyond the Lens: AI-Enabled Vision Systems From machine malfunctions to parts problems to human error, a lot of seemingly miniscule mistakes can occur in a manufacturing production line that can lead to costly defects. Coming to the rescue are smart industrial computer vision solutions that can see beyond the lens, using computer vision and AI for defect detection. Listen to our podcast with the Eigen Innovations Chief Revenue Officer who describes the value of these systems and answers the question: are we moving closer to zero-defect manufacturing?    
Computer Vision Solution Delivers Clarity with AI An intelligent computer vision solution corrects the distortion common in fisheye lenses and embeds metadata directly in the images to enable advanced AI-based applications. The technology improves images from cameras used in security, phones, laptops, and video conferencing solutions. Another application in the works is Joyce, a humanoid robot that integrates advanced optics with cognitive capabilities to allow for more human-like interactions.  
AI Development Centers Foster Collaboration Developers are highly focused on making the best products they can, and when they do, the next challenge begins: making sure they interoperate with other systems. Some companies have created testbeds to help developers and system integrators optimize their IIoT solutions and showcase them to potential customers.  
Zero-Defect Manufacturing: Are We There Yet? From cosmetic flaws to machine malfunctions to production line errors, defects that occur on the factory floor are an ongoing and costly challenge for manufacturers. Smart industrial computer vision solutions are now coming to the rescue, as manufacturers tap AI-enabled machine vision that can help them move closer to zero-defect manufacturing.    
Machine Vision Brings a Second Set of Eyes to Manufacturing Machine vision is fast becoming the go-to technology for the manufacturing industry because it enables the visual inspection of thousands of items more accurately and quickly than the human eye. Here’s a look at two solutions that system integrators can deploy to enhance their customers’ QA.
