Artificial Intelligence is Already Transforming Your Life & Workplace: Find out more at the Machine Intelligence Summit in Amsterdam this June

Autonomous vehicles, manufacturing, retail, robotics and healthcare are just some of the many fields where artificial intelligence is currently being applied. Hear from representatives of the German Research Institute of Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), Skyscanner, University of Amsterdam and many more at the summit.

How close are artificial intelligence systems to human-level intelligence? Recent advances in machine learning and deep learning make artificial intelligence ever more commonplace in our daily lives, often in previously unimaginable ways. This poses numerous questions about impact and timescales, as well as potential positive effects on our environment. The RE•WORK Machine Intelligence Summit, taking place on 28-29 June 2017 in Amsterdam, will explore these impacts in depth.

Robots are goal orientated in nature and thus perceive their environment as such. In order to achieve goals based in cognition, robots not only need to map their environment but also discern semantics. At the summit, Sven Behnke, Head of Autonomous Intelligent Systems Group and Full Professor of Computing Science at the University of Bonn, will detail their models for machine learning tasks, such as, surface categorization, detection, and recognition, from which 3D semantic environment maps are built. Imagine its utility in domestic service, space exploration, and search and rescue.
However, Roland Vollgraf, Research Lead from Zalando Research, applies mapping in a very different way. Zalando uses Fashion DNA: a structural feature mapping of fashion articles. Every article can be described in relative similarity; and thus has its own well-defined location in an abstract space. Fashion DNA processes product images, textual descriptions, vendor product attributes, or combinations thereof, through deep neural networks to create a unique coordinate vector. Articles, even those not yet designed, can be identified, and styles can be described formally; potentially changing how the retail and design industry will sell and market their goods.
Another industry currently being revolutionsed by advances in machine learning is the automotive sector. At the concurrent Autonomous Vehicle Track, Guan Wang, Machine Learning Engineer at NIO, will speak about personalising the self-driving car experience with machine intelligence. Equipped with a machine learning engine, autonomous cars will know their driver personally, their commute preferences, and even know their families. Cross-vehicle in-cabin knowledge discovery can make the cars capable of providing real-time assistance, such as point-of-interest recommendation, trip visualization and monitoring, and just-in-context services.
Learn more from Behnke, Vollgraf and Wang at the Machine Intelligence Summit and Machine Intelligence in Autonomous Vehicle Summit in Amsterdam. There will be more than 50 extraordinary speakers joining them across both tracks. Hear from representatives of the German Research Institute of Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), Skyscanner, University of Amsterdam and many more at the summit. Topics covered include Drones, Robotics, Pattern Recognition, Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communication, Natural Language Processing, AI in Security Systems, and Industrial Automation.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
