If you are struggling with data to make charts and power points or you are at the airport trying to make use of a long layover or simply worked up about maintenance of your cars, then relax, good news is on its way. Artificial Intelligence (AI) driven apps will soon be taking care of all these allowing you to enjoy other things in life.

A “sneak” into the future of digital solutions at the Adobe Summit 2019 presented by popular and witty Mindy Kaling, where ‘data unbound’, an AI- based document handling feature won hands down in an open voting. It is one of the most awaited features.

Presented by Sana Malik of Adobe Research, ‘data unbound’ analyses the data, draws the summary and converts it into charts and graphs for web pages and power points using Adobe Sensei and data analytics.

Another futuristic innovation presented was airline mobile app with augmented reality (AR) feature carrying interactive terminal map enabling the customer to stores and pick up products as AR objects in 3D.

Adobe’s automobile app will track the statistics about your car and keep you informed about its health for taking corrective measures in time and avoiding breakdowns.

US Chipmaker Intel Eyes AI on ‘Edge Computing’

It is designed to accelerate AI tasks, particularly ones like image processing, delivering performance up to six times the power efficiency of existing processors

US chipmaker Intel Corp. has said that it will focus on “edge computing” that could hold the key to the success of artificial intelligence (AI) in the future.

Edge computing refers to the practice of storing data on computers located near cell towers and other network equipment to improve network response times. It is different from today’s Cloud-based system, where information is sent to a distant data centre, Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday.

“Forty-three per cent of AI tasks will be handled by edge computing in 2023,” Kwon Myung-sook, CEO of Intel Korea, said in a statement during a forum in Seoul.

“AI devices empowered with edge function will jump 15-fold.”

The expansion of computing at the edge is an important growth opportunity for the chip giant — an estimated $65 billion market by 2023, Intel said.

More AI is being incorporated into edge devices, from Internet of Things (IoT) devices to smartphones, as AI algorithms improve, according to the company.

“Innovation in edge computing has become necessary where data is most produced,” Kwon said. “It is why Intel is preparing a platform solution that can cover both hardware and software.”

Intel said AI will support and provide new services in eight key industries, including smart cities, robots and gaming.
