すでに実用段階に入った! 富士通の人工知能「Zinrai」が実現する “未来のような現在”

Posted Posted in AI, NEWS


すでに実用段階に入った人工知能! その驚きの活用事例
人工知能(AI)が自動的に人間の顔を認識したり、文章の意味を判断したりする。あるいは、コールセンターで人間と対話したり、弁護士に代わって判例を検索したりする……。AIの活用には、どこか非現実的で”夢物語”のような印象がつきまとう。
しかし、富士通のAI基盤事業本部 ビジネス戦略室 室長 永井浩史 氏は「AIは夢物語ではありません。すでに実用段階に入った技術です」と強調し、富士通が取り組んだいくつかの活用事例を紹介した。その1つが「イノシシとタヌキを区別する」プロジェクトだ。

「ある農家のご要望で、オリの中にイノシシが入ったら扉を閉め、タヌキやアナグマは閉めないで逃がすワナを作りました。イノシシの画像100枚をデータ拡張の技術で1000枚に増やし、約3日間、ディープラーニングの学習を行った結果、人間は区別ができない夜間の映像であってもイノシシだけを正確に認識できるようになりました」(永井氏)

クルマの自動運転に不可欠な画像認識の実験も行われている。クルマに車載カメラを設置して、運転中の映像をリアルタイムに解析する実験だが、永井氏はその認識能力の高さを次のように説明する。

US startups don’t want to go public anymore. That’s bad news for Americans

Posted Posted in Development, NEWS


Going public was once a sign of a young startup’s promise. But these days, a growing number of young companies are avoiding IPOs altogether. In 1997, the average age of US-listed firms was a sprightly 12 years old. Now the average age is 20. US public companies have also gotten bigger. Between 1975 and 1991, around half of listed companies had a market capital of less than $100 million (in 2015 dollars)—compared with 22% in 2016.

This all adds up to an astonishing fact: The US now has “abnormally few listed firms,” according to a new working paper (registration required) from the National Bureau of Economics. (The paper hasn’t been peer-reviewed.) In 1997, more than 7,500 American firms were listed publicly in the US. Nearly two decades later, in 2016, the number had dropped more than half, slipping to 3,618 firms.

WAYMO LAUNCHES ITS SELF-DRIVING ARMADA

Posted Posted in NEWS, Real


The Alphabet spinoff is in a rush, so it’s buying thousands more “driverless” cars from Fiat-Chrysler.

It’s 2018, and Waymo is doing it live. Two months after the Alphabet self-driving car spinoff announced it would start running a truly driver-free service in Phoenix this year (as in, cars romping about with no one at the wheel), the company now unveils how it will do it: with the help of thousands more Chrysler Pacifica hybrids. The vehicles, built by Fiat Chrysler in Canada, will eventually make their way to the cities where Waymo is currently testing driverless tech. Waymo already uses 600 of the minivans to test its driverless software.

Best Buy to Pull CDs, Target Threatens to Pay Labels for CDs Only When Customers Buy Them

Posted Posted in NEWS, Real


If the majors don’t play ball and give in to Target’s new sale terms, it could considerably hasten the phase down of the CD format.

Even though digital is on the upswing, physical is still performing relatively well on a global basis — if not in the U.S. market, where CD sales were down 18.5 percent last year. But things are about to get worse here, if some of the noise coming out of the big boxes comes to fruition.

Best Buy has just told music suppliers that it will pull CDs from its stores come July 1. At one point, Best Buy was the most powerful music merchandiser in the U.S., but nowadays it’s a shadow of its former self, with a reduced and shoddy offering of CDs. Sources suggest that the company’s CD business is nowadays only generating about $40 million annually. While it says it’s planning to pull out CDs, Best Buy will continue to carry vinyl for the next two years, keeping a commitment it made to vendors. The vinyl will now be merchandised with the turntables, sources suggest.

Our Creations – Aiva Technologies

Posted Posted in AI, Development, NEWS


Our mission: Establish Aiva as one of the greatest composers in history, and fuel the world with personalized music.

AIVA – Artificial Intelligence Virtual Artist

Aiva is an Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) capable of composing emotional soundtracks for films, video games, commercials and any type of entertainment content.

She has been learning the art of music composition by reading through a large collection of music partitions, written by the greatest Composers (Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, …) to create a mathematical model representation of what music is. This model is then used by Aiva to write completely unique music.

Recently, Aiva became the first virtual artist to have her creations registered with an author’s rights society (SACEM), a feat that many artists thought impossible to achieve for at least another decade. This achievement does not mean that Aiva will replace musicians; we will continue to encourage collaborations between man and machine.

Surging Samsung Electronics Takes Intel’s Chipmaking Crown

Posted Posted in NEWS


Intel Corp. posted record revenue in 2017, but it wasn’t enough.

Samsung Electronics Co. just knocked Intel off its perch as the world’s biggest chipmaker by revenue, a spot the U.S. company has held since 1992. On Tuesday, Samsung reported 2017 chip sales of $69 billion, blowing past Intel’s $63 billion from last year.

The switch underlines how Samsung has transformed itself from a maker of cheap televisions into a pervasive supplier of key components in smartphones and other modern computing devices. It’s also a testament to the growth of memory chips, Samsung’s main market.

アルツハイマー病、血液で判定 治療薬開発に期待

Posted Posted in Medical Care, NEWS


国立長寿医療研究センターと島津製作所などの研究グループは、微量の血液からアルツハイマー病の発症に影響するとされるタンパク質などを計測し、アルツハイマーにつながる病変の有無を早期に高精度で判定できる技術を開発した。31日付のネイチャーオンラインに発表した。血液からの検出法の確立は世界初で、アルツハイマー病の鑑別や治療薬開発などに役立つと期待される。

 アルツハイマー病は、発症する20~30年前から脳内に異常タンパク「アミロイドベータ」がたまり始めることが知られている。蓄積の有無を確かめるには、脳脊髄液を採取するか、高額な検査を受ける必要がある。
