STMicroelectronics’ sensors to provide data for new Qeexo machine learning products

Qeexo, a developer of machine learning and artificial intelligence solutions for sensor data, and STMicroelectronics, a semiconductor company, are partnering to further accelerate integration of Qeexo’s FingerSense technology by original equipment manufacturers.

Already, Qeexo’s FingerSense platform, which can differentiate between fingertip, knuckle, nail, and stylus-based touches, has been deployed on over 100 million devices worldwide.

FingerSense’s proprietary machine learning algorithms utilize sensor data from STMicroelectronics’ FingerTip multi-touch screen-control and MEMS sensor products to dramatically enhance the user experience of mobile devices.  Continue reading STMicroelectronics’ sensors to provide data for new Qeexo machine learning products

If AI ruled the world: Yandex Data Factory boss’ predictions for 2018

By Jane Zavalishina, chief executive officer, Yandex Data Factory

2018 will be the year of practical artificial intelligence adoption.

AI is all too often associated with “futuristic” applications like self-driving cars or robots.

As a consequence, many business leaders view AI as a risky, capital-intensive innovation where return on investment is not guaranteed. Continue reading If AI ruled the world: Yandex Data Factory boss’ predictions for 2018

Alchemy IoT launches with $4 million funding to integrate AI into IIoT without need for coding
