Whilst the term ‘augmented reality’ (AR) was coined in the 90s by Boeing researcher Tom Caudell, it’s emergence in customer facing products is still relatively new. Over the past year, numerous smartphone apps have released AR features - think Pokemon Go, Snapchat, and other similar games. These apps allow you to layer a virtual world on top of the real world in front of you. Researchers are currently moving towards embedding AR in everyday life. Whilst the Google Glass didn't receive the acclaim that had been hoped, the technology is there and the ability to disrupt and enhance the world around us with augmented additions is approaching.
With a practical application of AR, L’Oreal have created an app that allows customers to take photographs of themselves and ‘try on’ different products to assess whether they’d be interested in purchasing them.

Artificial intelligence is changing our world, and deep learning is a crucial part in attaining this. Deep learning is considered a branch of Machine Learning, with the aim of moving machine learning closer to Artificial Intelligence. It has enabled artificial intelligence to be applied practically, breaking down tasks to help machines understand and perform without being assisted. Advancing the field of deep learning is crucial to progress and breakthroughs within the technology.

As our Global Deep Learning Summit Series draws closer, we’re casting forward to the three track finale event in San Francisco in January 25 & 26. The sixteenth global Deep Learning Summit will be joined by the first ever Deep Learning for Enterprise Summit as well as the fifth global Virtual Assistant Summit. Deep learning is advancing rapidly and holds great promise for analysing unstructured data, but there are obstacles in its implementation: it’s hard to do, it requires large amounts of data, and it uses a lot of processing power. Pioneers in the industry are working to overcome this, and we are excited to hear from some of the leading industry professionals, academics, startups, and businesses in the field across the three track event.

As part of a five year collaboration project, Toyota Research are working with MIT’s Media Lab to build and analyse new deep-learning based perception and motion based planning technologies for autonomous vehicles. Toyota are working with a series of companies specialising in blockchain technology (a distributed database used to maintain a continuously growing list of records that powers the cryptocurrency bitcoin) and are aiming to explore how this can be applied to the industry.

Deep learning is being applied extensively within all the tools that we use in everyday life, mobile phones, computers and even coffee machines. Therefore it is important to understand how the technology works. Over the last few weeks, we have been introducing the A-Z Glossary Series for Deep Learning, which will include explanations for key terms to help build a basic understanding in deep learning.

The question of whether technology will improve or further disrupt urban traffic remains, and will so until driverless cars are in mainstream operation, but autonomous vehicle testing and intelligence is rapidly advancing. Ahead of our Machine Intelligence in Autonomous Vehicle Summit in Amsterdam 28 & 29 June, we’re taking a look at the most recent breakthroughs and news in this space.
Currently, all self-drive cars in testing are required to have a human backup driver in case of emergencies, but Delphi and Transdev have revealed that they are planning to use autonomous taxis and shuttles to carry passengers on roads in France.

Over the last year, Boston has seen its tech scene flourish, and when our team headed out for the Deep Learning Summit and the Deep Learning in Healthcare Summit at the end of May, we heard first hand from some of these thriving companies.
Having traveled back from Boston on the day of the British Airways IT meltdown, it really draw on the functionality of Freebird, a B2B travel tech startup based in Boston, and how it could have saved the day had we been booked onto a BA flight back to the UK.
