New Podcast: Data, Data Everywhere: Putting It to Work Many companies like to talk about how they moved to data-driven operations. Putting data to work, however, requires a solid understanding of how to use massive amounts of sensor-collected data to solve real problems and make adjustments, sometimes in real time. To better understand what’s happening with IoT, AI, and data analytics, we talked with a data science expert from Intel® who also holds the distinction of being the company’s only Kaggle Grandmaster.
Sensors Integrated in Fabric Could Redefine Telemedicine Smart garments can accurately monitor patient vitals and actions without needing typical medical equipment. They also can improve exercise experiences for individuals. With greater use of smart health devices, it’s no surprise that smart garments are on the rise.
IoT Technology Helps Farmers Meet Global Food Shortage Challenges The fast increasing world population will become even more reliant on the agriculture industry to meet the growing need for food. Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and advanced analytics are helping small-scale farmers increase yield, minimize risk, and discover efficiencies to help feed the planet's humans today and in the future.
Vending Machines, Self-Screening Apps Help Combat COVID-19 The University of California San Diego is using vending machines to distribute COVID-19 tests to students. Universities hope easy access to testing and self-screening apps will tamp down possible Coronavirus outbreaks, so students can stay on campus. Airports and other public areas are also following suit and adding easy-to-use vending machines with test kits.
Tablet-based Platform Helps Fire Departments Track Events—and Save Lives Two California firefighters looked to IoT technology to create a more effective incident response for firefighting teams. They developed Tablet Command, an intelligent platform solution and mobile app that can keep firefighters safer and better prepared in the line of duty.
New Orleans Stalls Heat and Rain Damage with IoT Living in the Big Easy means living with the good and the bad weather of a subtropical climate. IoT sensors are helping the city track flooding and high temperatures to protect residents in danger zones and revitalize neighborhoods through better planning and development.
University Counts on Data Modeling to Track, Contain COVID-19 Outbreaks University of California San Diego launches an ambitious Return to Learn program that aims to provide self-testing kits to 65,000 students, faculty, and staff on campus on a recurring basis for COVID-19. It also plans to use data modeling, contact tracing, and wastewater testing to create a tailored map of any virus outbreaks so it can quickly stop the spread.
