Modern technology can help soldiers learn faster during fight

This technique could eventually become part of a suite of tools embedded on the next generation combat vehicle, offering cognitive services and devices for warfighters in distributed coalition environments, said Rajgopal Kannan, a researcher, from the US Army Research Laboratory.

A novel machine learning technique could help soldiers to learn 13 times faster than conventional methods as well as help save lives, say researchers, including one of Indian-origin.

Using a low-cost, lightweight hardware and implementing collaborative filtering — a well-known machine learning technique — the team found that soldiers are able to decipher hints of information faster and more quickly deploy solutions, such as recognizing threats like a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device, or potential danger zones from aerial war zone images.

This work is part of Army's larger focus on artificial intelligence and machine learning research initiatives pursued to help to gain a strategic advantage and ensure warfighter superiority with applications such as on-field adaptive processing and tactical computing, he said.

Twenty six schools in the Taj city, Agra will soon get sanitary pad vending machines installed, a Uttar Pradesh official said on Saturday.

They have been gifted by social entrepreneur and founder of Nine, Amar Tulsiyan in a bid to raise awareness about menstruation and de-stigmatise the natural phenomenon.

The machines have already reached the principals of — Holi Public School in Sikandra, Sachdeva Millenium School in Shashtripuram, Agra Public School in Viajy Nagar, Artoni and Shahdra Chungi, Andrew Public School in Balkeshwar, Kamla Nagar, St Andrew Public School in Baruli and Dr MS World School among others. They would be installed as soon as the mid-term exams were over.
