Description

AI has been described as “Thor’s Hammer“ and “the new electricity.” But it’s also a bit of a mystery – even to those who know it best. We’ll connect with some of the world’s leading AI experts to explain how it works, how it’s evolving, and how it intersects with every facet of human endeavor. This podcast is produced by NVIDIA, the AI computing company. Multiple episodes are released every month.

We’ve all chosen the self-checkout stand over the human cashier, thinking it’ll take less time.But somehow, things take a terrible turn. The barcodes aren’t scanning, there’s a pop-up scolding you for not placing the product in the bagging area (though you did, of course), and an employee is coming over to fix the chaos.It would’ve taken less time to go to the cashier.Focal Systems is applying deep learning and computer vision to automate portions of retail stores in order to streamline store operations and get customers in and out more efficiently, without the pitfalls of the traditional self-checkout.CEO Francois Chaubard sat down with AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz to talk about how the company is changing retailers.

Artificial intelligence thrives on data, the more the better. But when we’re talking about putting data in many industries, such as health care, to work, things can get very complicated, very quickly. Walter De Brouwer is CEO of Doc.ai, a Silicon Valley based company that’s building a medical research platform that can address this issue with federated learning.
Imagine staring into the high-beams of an oncoming car. Now imagine trying to pick out a speck of dust in the glare of the headlights. That’s the challenge Olivier Guyon and Damien Gratadour face as they try to find the dull glint of an exoplanet — a planet orbiting a star outside our solar system — beside the bright light of its star.The pair -- Guyon is an instrument developer for Japan’s Subaru Telescope, and an astronomer at the University of Arizona; and Gratadour is an associate professor at the Observatoire de Paris and an instrument scientist at the Australian National University -- spoke with AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz about how they’re using GPU-powered extreme adaptive optics in very large telescopes to image nearby habitable planets.
