Edge AI Partnerships Boost Face Biometrics in Retail and Smart City Solutions

New high-res facial recognition cameras are coming to smart cities in Central and South America this year. Edge AI-powered Ability cameras—which use Vsblty’s Vector software and are built on the Intel Movidius Myriad X VPU and the OpenVINO toolkit—will help cities run biometric algorithms, detect mask compliance, and much more.

IIoT and AI Provide the Fuel for Industrial Efficiency at Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce's ambitious industrial IoT (IIoT) initiatives have created a correspondingly huge challenge, namely managing the data derived from 70 trillion data points (and growing). To ease the pressure and keep its engine running, the company turned to AI and is now sharing a framework and toolkit to help other manufacturers trust AI and apply it to their own IIoT plans.

Demetics Protects AI-Based Medical Innovation With Intel SGX

Ultrasonic imaging analysis continues to play an important role in diagnosing and treating disease, yet it’s still a heavily manual process that can lead to errors. By using intelligent imaging diagnostics, AI can help providers accelerate detection and treatment. To protect its medical AI algorithms and IP in medical devices at the edge, Demetics has turned to Intel SGX and the Intel oneAPI Math Kernel Library.

Early Access Program Now Available for 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processor-Based Systems

Ready to jumpstart your validation testing and benchmarking? Supermicro’s JumpStart Early Access program for the upcoming 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors—codenamed Ice Lake—is now open for early CNDA remote access. Apply now in just four easy steps for an early look at 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor-based Supermicro X12 systems. Watch for additional Early Access programs in the coming weeks.

The Importance of Algorithmic Fairness

Algorithmic fairness—or the study of how algorithms perform for certain groups of people and the ways in which systemic inequities might be perpetuated by algorithmic systems—is priority number one for Alice Xiang and the Partnership on AI. She recently stopped by the “Intel on AI” podcast to discuss the organization’s goals, considerations for the future of AI adoption, and more.
