Welcome, AIoT / IoT Weekly Readers to Issue number 156! Thank you for your interest in Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, and the area in which they overlap called the Artifical Intelligence of Things ( AIoT ). As the world and technology changes, these devices are going to be able to think program, reprogram, and adjust in real-time. I'm very excited to see what's ahead!
Lots of great things have happened this past week:
We had our Applied AI Meetup as we discussed how local startups are applying AI in their business. If you missed it, you can see the video and watch prior videos and podcasts on our YouTube page!
Additionally, we are gearing up the December 2nd Meetup, where we'll be talking about Creating Art with Artificial Intelligence. Register today!

How IoT and AI Are Helping Keep Truck Drivers Safe
Truck safety is a major focus for the trucking industry. Now there is Artificial Intelligence that can make a real-time difference in lives, money, and on-road safety.
4 Things You Need to Know Now About Edge Computing
Edge computing is one of the most important trends in IT. By 2023, more than half of new enterprise IT infrastructure will be at the edge, according to IDC.1 By 2025, Gartner predicts 75% of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed outside a traditional data center or cloud.2
Despite this significant shift, however, many IT and business leaders are early in the process of defining how edge complements their overall cloud strategy. According to exclusive research by Hewlett Packard Enterprise, many organizations are just beginning to realize the potential of edge initiatives through pilot projects and proofs of concept.
Artificial Intelligence Trends and Predictions for 2021
Artificial intelligence (AI) has taken on many new shapes and use cases as experts learn more about what’s possible with big data and smart algorithms. Today’s AI market, then, consists of a mixture of tried-and-true smart technologies with new optimizations and advanced AI that is slowly transforming the way we do work and live daily life.
What is AIoT?
Technology is always full of new buzz words and abbreviations. Some don’t stick around for long while others like AI become part of everyday language even if what it does isn’t always understood. AIoT is the combination of Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things, two incredibly popular acronyms that have emerged as disruptive forces within the technological world. What does AIoT do, is it just another marketing term, or is it here to stay? Before answering these questions, it’s important to understand what the two technologies do in their own right.

Every Startup Is an AI Startup: How to Accelerate Business Growth With AI
There are many ways in which we, as consumers, use AI in our day-to-day activities without realizing it – unlocking our phone with face ID; seeing our emails automatically categorized; receiving content suggestions on websites; navigating while driving; converting speech to text in the form of subtitles or transcripts; interacting with chatbots and smart personal assistants, and more.
AI is now ubiquitous and indeed democratized, such that every startup needs to use AI at the heart of its technology stack to offer its customers the experience they have come to expect.
New AI Algorithm May Quickly, Effectively Diagnose Deep Vein Thrombosis
A team of researchers are developing the use of an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm with the aim of diagnosing deep vein thrombosis (DVT) more quickly and as effectively as traditional radiologist-interpreted diagnostic scans, potentially cutting down long patient waiting lists and avoiding patients unnecessarily receiving drugs to treat DVT when they don't have it.
Physical Athletes Visual Skills Prove Sharper Than Action Video Game Players
Athletes still have the edge over action video gamers when it comes to dynamic visual skills, a new study from the University of Waterloo shows. For an athlete, having strong visual skills can be the difference between delivering peak performance and achieving average results.
Machine Learning (ML) Business Use Cases 2021
As machine learning (ML) technology improves and use cases grow, more companies are employing ML to optimize their operations through data. As a branch of artificial intelligence (AI), ML is helping companies to make data-based predictions and decisions based on scale. Here are some examples across the globe of how organizations in various industries are working with vendors to implement machine learning solutions:
Learning to Summarize with Human Feedback
Large-scale language models are becoming increasingly capable on NLP tasks. These models are usually trained with the objective of next word prediction on a dataset of human-written text. But this objective doesn’t capture exactly what we want; usually, we don’t want our models to imitate humans, we want them to give high-quality answers.
"Lighter" AI Delivers a New Era of IoT
The Internet of things (IoT) is all about connected devices, and these devices can exist in many different settings – industrial, medical, consumer/home, transportation and more. The number of potential IoT devices is enormous as IoT becomes more popular and widely adopted over time. According to Statista, there are approximately 21.5-billion interconnected devices in the world.
AI at the Edge for Enterprise IoT
Enterprises are eager to use intelligent artificial intelligence (AI) chips to bring data analytics workloads down to the edge of IoT networks.
In four years, the size of the market for edge AI chips is set to surpass the equivalent for cloud architectures, reaching $12.2 billion against $11.1 billion for the cloud, according to ABI Research.
