“ZTE has unveiled its commercially ready AI-based 5G slicing operation system, CloudStudio, at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 in Barcelona. The company claims it is an industry first.
This system introduces the 3A concept: Awareness, Automation, and AI, supporting agile slice deployment, intelligent analysis and rapid self-healing. It simplifies 5G network operation, improving O&M efficiency by more than 30%, and reducing cost of network construction by 20%, an official statement claims.”
“But Spectre isn’t just about long shutter speeds: it’s using AI and computational photography to produce enhanced long exposures without the usual distractions. The app can completely remove crowds from a scene, which will come in handy if you’re photographing spots that are popular with tourists. It can even clear streets of cars in some scenarios. Check out the video below. Additionally, the app automatically detects evening scenes to create those desired light trails and can easily apply that motion effect to falling water.”
The convergence of several factors, and the chiseling hand of time, have turned Latin America into a sweet spot when it comes to headhunting. Latin American universities offer a wide range of software related degrees, from undergraduate to doctoral, particularly in Brazil, Argentina and Chile.
R&D in Brazil
Taking a closer look at Brazil, we can point to the São Paulo Research Foundation, or FAPESP, which is a public foundation with the mission to support research projects in higher education and research institutions.
Applied AI in Argentina
In Argentina, the software community has been growing strong both in the industry and academia. In 2015, the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI) was held there; in 2017, the International Conference on Software Engineering took its turn.
Chile and the IoT
Chile has shown to be particularly fruitful in the development and adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT). The Chilean company Satelnet has been making it possible for its clients to run operations in remote locations in the south of the country, and to access online information even on mobile bases. They can view and control remote cameras or run any production process automatically through satellite technology.”
“Artificial Intelligence backed data authentication platform Fakespot announced it has surpassed 3 billion reviews analyzed, up 50% from the end of 2017.
“Some of the biggest companies in the world are in danger of losing the trust of consumers. When it comes to eCommerce, marketers and advertisers know no boundaries, publishing fake reviews to sway consumers’ purchasing decisions. With Fakespots rapid growth and reach, we hope to change this narrative and bring integrity back to customer reviews.” Saoud Khalifah, CEO of Fakespot
Research shows that 91% of people regularly or occasionally read online reviews, and 84% trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations.”
