Drones: Future of War and New Paradigm of Warfare

Drones: Future of War and New Paradigm of Warfare We are living in the age of modern warfare, with artificial intelligence powered robots and unmanned aerial vehicles. While remote-controlled drones had been used in times of war since World War II, they were seriously revolutionized since 1995. We analyzed the evolution of military drones and […]

How artificial intelligence and machine learning can help farmers diagnose crop diseases?

How artificial intelligence and machine learning can help farmers diagnose crop diseases? Plant diseases are one of the most important reasons that lead to the destruction of plants and crops. Detecting those diseases at early stages enable farmers to overcome and treat them appropriately. Expert systems help a great deal in identifying those diseases and […]

Artificial intelligence in civil engineering

Artificial intelligence in civil engineering With expenditures reaching over $900 billion, the United States is the second largest construction market worldwide. The US construction industry is being challenged to make large improvements, including speed of project delivery, out-turn cost and reducing carbon emissions. Traditional methods for modeling and optimizing complex structure systems require huge amounts […]

Can artificial intelligence reduce food waste?

Can artificial intelligence reduce food waste? U.S. consumers throw away almost as much food as they eat. According to a Guardian report, roughly 50 percent of all produce in the United States is thrown away—some 60 million tons (or $160 billion) worth of produce annually. Wasted food is also the single biggest occupant in American […]

Towards autonomous irrigation. Can artificial intelligence irrigation system reduce water use?

Towards autonomous irrigation. Can artificial intelligence irrigation system reduce water use? Water consumption is presently one of the more worrisome environmental problems in many areas around the globe. The main objective of many researchers is to reduce the volume of water wasted with current irrigation systems by applying artificial intelligence methods and therefore optimizing the […]

The Militarization of Artificial Intelligence

The Militarization of Artificial Intelligence US Army considers artificial intelligence and machine learning for unmanned ground vehicles, while Pentagon is working to incorporate more AI technology into military robots. Armies around the world have revealed their plans for artificial intelligence on the rear and on the battlefield. AI applications have the potential to change the […]

How these artificial intelligence-powered robots will change military industry

How these artificial intelligence-powered robots will change military industry Military already uses a host of robotic systems in the battlefield, from reconnaissance and attack drones to bomb disposal robots. However, these are all remotely-piloted systems, meaning a human has a high level of control over the machine’s actions at all times. Also military technology has […]

Artificial intelligence in missile technology

Artificial intelligence in missile technology The new buzzword in militaries across the world today is artificial intelligence – the ability for combat platforms to self-control, self-regulate and self-actuate, using inherent computing and decision-making capabilities. That advanced computing technologies today enable autonomous systems to identify and strike hostile targets is no surprise. There is growing interest […]

How AI is helping farmers to save thousands of dollars

How AI is helping farmers to save thousands of dollars Food and agribusiness comprise a $5 trillion industry that accounts for 10 percent of global consumer spending, 40 percent of employment and 30 percent of greenhouse-gas emissions. This massive industry does not change easily, but change – transformative innovation – is precisely what’s needed. We […]
