Advanced Vision Algorithm Helps Robots Learn to See in 3D

Robots are reliable in industrial settings, where recognizable objects appear at predictable times in familiar circumstances. But life at home is messy. Put a robot in a house, where it must navigate unfamiliar territory cluttered with foreign objects, and it’s useless.

Now researchers have developed a new computer vision algorithm that gives a robot the ability to recognize three-dimensional objects and, at a glance, intuit items that are partially obscured or tipped over, without needing to view them from multiple angles.

“It sees the front half of a pot sitting on a counter and guesses there’s a handle in the rear and that might be a good place to pick it up from,” said Ben Burchfiel, a Ph.D. candidate in the field of computer vision and robotics at Duke University.

In experiments where the robot viewed 908 items from a single vantage point, it guessed the object correctly about 75 percent of the time. State-of-the-art computer vision algorithms previously achieved an accuracy of about 50 percent.

Burchfiel and George Konidaris, an assistant professor of computer science at Brown University, presented their research last week at the Robotics: Science and Systems Conference in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Like other computer vision algorithms used to train robots, their robot learned about its world by first sifting through a database of 4,000 three-dimensional objects spread across ten different classes — bathtubs, beds, chairs, desks, dressers, monitors, night stands, sofas, tables, and toilets.

While more conventional algorithms may, for example, train a robot to recognize the entirety of a chair or pot or sofa or may train it to recognize parts of a whole and piece them together, this one looked for how objects were similar and how they differed.

When it found consistencies within classes, it ignored them in order to shrink the computational problem down to a more manageable size and focus on the parts that were different.

For example, all pots are hollow in the middle. When the algorithm was being trained to recognize pots, it didn’t spend time analyzing the hollow parts. Once it knew the object was a pot, it focused instead on the depth of the pot or the location of the handle.

“That frees up resources and makes learning easier,” said Burchfiel.

Extra computing resources are used to figure out whether an item is right-side up and also infer its three-dimensional shape, if part of it is hidden. This last problem is particularly vexing in the field of computer vision, because in the real world, objects overlap.

To address it, scientists have mainly turned to the most advanced form of artificial intelligence, which uses artificial neural networks, or so-called deep-learning algorithms, because they process information in a way that’s similar to how the brain learns.

Although deep-learning approaches are good at parsing complex input data, such as analyzing all of the pixels in an image, and predicting a simple output, such as “this is a cat,” they’re not good at the inverse task, said Burchfiel. When an object is partially obscured, a limited view — the input — is less complex than the output, which is a full, three-dimensional representation.

The algorithm Burchfiel and Konidaris developed constructs a whole object from partial information by finding complex shapes that tend to be associated with each other. For instance, objects with flat square tops tend to have legs. If the robot can only see the square top, it may infer the legs.

“Another example would be handles,” said Burchfeil. “Handles connected to cylindrical drinking vessels tend to connect in two places. If a mug shaped object is seen with a small nub visible, it is likely that that nub extends into a curved, or square, handle.”

Once trained, the robot was then shown 908 new objects from a single viewpoint. It achieved correct answers about 75 percent of the time. Not only was the approach more accurate than previous methods, it was also very fast. After a robot was trained, it took about a second to make its guess. It didn’t need to look at the object from different angles and it was able to infer parts that couldn’t be seen.

This type of learning gives the robot a visual perception that’s similar to the way humans see. It interprets objects with a more generalized sense of the world, instead of trying to map knowledge of identical objects onto what it’s seeing.

Burchfiel said he wants to build on this research by training the algorithm on millions of objects and perhaps tens of thousands of types of objects.

“We want to build this is into single robust system that could be the baseline behind a general robot perception scheme,” he said.

The company has also updated the MIUI 8 Weather app – it is currently available in beta, but will be rolling out in a few weeks to MIUI 8 users. The Weather app now includes real time air quality index (AQI) data for India.

Robot Mechanic Could Prevent Satellites from Becoming Space Junk

Image result for Robot Mechanic Could Prevent Satellites from Becoming Space Junk

DARPA plans to send a robotic service technician to repair broken satellites in geosynchronous orbit.  Let’s say you are the program manager of a very large, complex system. Perhaps it’s an aircraft, or a building, or a communications network. Your system is valued at over US $500 million. Could you imagine being told that you won’t ever be able to maintain it? That once it’s operational, it will never be inspected, repaired, or upgraded with new hardware?

Welcome to the world of satellite building. After a satellite is launched, it is on a one-way journey to disrepair and obsolescence, and there is little anyone can do to alter that path. Faults (which are called anomalies in the space business) can only be diagnosed remotely, using data and inferential reasoning. Software fixes and upgrades may be possible, but the nuts and bolts remain untouched. The upshot: Even if a satellite is operating well, it could lose its state-of-the-art status just a few years into a typical 15-year lifetime.

If governments and private companies could actively repair and revitalize their satellites in geosynchronous orbit—and move them to new orbits as needed—they could extend the lifespans of  their investments and substantially defer the cost of building and launching replacements.

To that end, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has sponsored a project to develop a robotic servicing spacecraft that can work on satellites that were never designed to be repaired—which is pretty much all of the ones in orbit today. The ­public-private partnership, called the Robotic Servicing of Geosynchronous Satellites (RSGS) program, builds on a decade of work by DARPA and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, as well as the efforts of university researchers and space agencies around the world.

When RSGS launches in the early 2020s, its robot arm could move GEO satellites to new orbits, fix stuck solar panels, and perform other important repairs. Independently, NASA plans to launch, around the same time, a robotic mission called Restore-L; its aim is to refuel and relocate a government-owned satellite now in low Earth orbit.

If successful, these two missions will push the limits of automation and robotic operation in space. They could be the first steps toward space construction projects such as vast solar arrays that can beam energy back to Earth, robots that could mine asteroids and deflect those that pose a danger to Earth, and many other applications that would revolutionize the way we operate beyond the bounds of Earth’s atmosphere.

The Corporate Blockchain

An illustration of a handshake with patterns from a circuit board projected onto the hands.

Hundreds of financiers, Wall Street analysts, and C-suite executives gathered in New York City this week to peer into the future of finance at the CB Insights’ Future of Fintech conference. And on Wednesday afternoon, they took a moment to ponder one of the greatest existential threats to their industry—and how they might turn it to their advantage.

Attendees crammed into a standing-room-only session to hear about the role that blockchains would play in existing businesses. To many in finance, it’s a perplexing topic. After all, the Bitcoin blockchain was long ago predicted to render modern finance—and finacial firms—obsolete.

Instead, many financial firms have embraced blockchain technology, and even become rather bullish about it in the process. But companies have also found that preparing a blockchain to go live, and integrating it with existing systems, can be a daunting process.

Up on stage, and tasked with guiding the crowd through its mixed bag of emotions, were: Marley Gray, principal program manager for Microsoft’s Azure Blockchain Engineering; Joe Lubin, founder of the blockchain consulting firm ConsenSys; and Rumi Morales, executive director of CME Ventures, the investment arm of CME Group which manages the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

Gray set the tone for the discussion from his vantage point at Microsoft, which offers a platform that it calls blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) to help companies build their own blockchain-based networks and applications. As a result, Gray has seen how early experiments have fared across many industries.

“One of our goals was to make it ridiculously easy to roll [blockchains] out,” he said. “Now we’re at the next phase of—now I’ve got this blockchain, what do I do with it? So we’re kind of stuck on that piece right now.”

Many banks and stock exchanges are on the cusp of moving from pilots and proof-of-concepts to actual blockchain implementations. Morales, who has overseen her firm’s investments into Ripple and Digital Currency Group(which owns the cryptocurrency news site CoinDesk and has funded Coinbase, a trading service), suggested the industry is facing a moment of truth.

“Last year, we saw a number of companies announcing that they would be building things, or had a use case, for [the blockchain],” she said. “This is the year they need to prove that.”

There has been some progress on that front—in May, Nasdaq, Citi, and Chain revealed a blockchain-based payments system for private equity and earlier this week, IBM announced that it was building a system to manage trade finance with seven European banks that would go live by the end of the year.

But there’s a significant back-office bottleneck for people looking to deploy systems. Developers have a limited set of software tools at their disposal, and there is fierce competition for their talent. Consortiums, startups, and incumbents such as IBM and Microsoft are developing dozens of different ways to build blockchain-based networks and applications, without any reference architecture or standards to lean on.

This process can be frustrating, to say the least, said Morales. “For many people I know, they’ve moved on to pulling out their eyelashes because they’ve finished pulling out their hair,” she said. “It can be very painful.”

Even so, Morales and her fellow panelists were not keen on the idea of establishing comprehensive standards anytime soon. “I really think we’re going to have to be very, very specific about the definition of blockchain if we’re going to talk about standards,” she said.

Gray from Microsoft put it more bluntly. “It’s way too early for standards,” he said.

In the end, of course, the agony of blockchain development could very well result in big pay offs. For many, the thrill of the technology is its potential to overturn so many aspects of how business is done today. Throughout the week, I heard attendees and speakers batting around dozens of possible uses for blockchains in sessions and hallway meetings.

On stage, Lubin described one of his favorite projects at ConsenSys—a solar power system in which batteries automatically sell or buy extra juice through a blockchain, thereby improving the efficiency of the entire grid. “It prevents the need to spin up billion-dollar petrol plants to handle peak load in hot days in the summer,” he said.

And for every discussion of a practical use that has already been identified, there were countless mentions of the technology’s unexplored possibility. “It’s like trying to predict Facebook back in 1995,” Gray said. “Who would have known?”

While everyone else is dreaming about blockchain’s killer app, Gray believes the highest value of the technology will be to bridge industries and simplify all kinds of interactions across companies, individuals, public entities, and real-world events. “The true promise is ultimately getting to a place where we can have business contracts that weave together across verticals,” he said.

This also means that Gray expects the current industry-wide preference for permissioned blockchains—those which are cordoned off from public access—will eventually erode. Instead, he thinks society will gradually embrace the power and functionality of decentralized, public chains, such as the one that underlies Bitcoin.

First, though, public blockchains must prove that they can scale up to handle millions upon millions of transactions every day. Currently, no public blockchains could do this, said Lubin.

Looking ahead, Lubin expects both public and private blockchains to evolve over a long development period that has only just begun. “Blockchains in two, five, and 10 years from now are going to look completely different,” he said.

For all the work ahead, many speakers and attendees at the conference remained optimistic—and at times, positively upbeat—about the future of blockchain technology. For the finance industry, the promise of reducing costs, settling trades, and streamlining transactions is particularly intoxicating. “That gain is hopefully going to be worth the pain,” Morales said.

Google Pixel Smartphones Expected at October 4 Event

Google Pixel Smartphones Expected at October 4 Event

Google late Monday sent out invitations to an October 4 event, hinting that the Internet titan will show off a new smartphone powered by its Android mobile software.

Emailed invitations revealed only the time and place for the gathering in San Francisco, the message topped by blue, red, yellow, and green dots of color.

Google fired off a Twitter message with hashtag #madebygoogle and a video of what appeared to be a long rectangular search term box morphing into a silhouette of a smartphone.

Industry trackers have been expecting Google in October to show off its own smartphone, showcasing the prowess of its new Nougat version of Android software.

Google may stamp its latest smartphones with a “Pixel” brand instead of the “Nexus” name it has used in the past for Android smartphones it has made in collaborations with partners.

A Google smartphone would be fielded as a standard to which other’s making Android devices should aspire, and would come just weeks after Apple’s began selling new iPhone 7 models.

An enticing Google smartphone could also prove a contender for the attention of buyers during the prime year-end holiday shopping season.

Scenes in Apple stores around the world on Friday were reminiscent of days before online ordering became a norm and people camped out for days to be first to get hands on the California company’s iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

Enthusiasm was peppered with disappointment due to shortages of the large-screen iPhone 7 Plus and a Jet Black iPhone 7, but it was unclear if the shortages were the result of strong demand or limited supply.

The devices chart a new path for the tech giant by eliminating headphone jacks, a move seen as setting a trend for a wireless future

The iPhones also boast Apple’s freshly-released iOS 10 mobile operating system.

While the company has touted total iPhone sales of one billion, the number sold in the quarter ending June 25 fell 15 percent from a year earlier, highlighting concerns over growth for the key profit driver.

Growth has become challenging with many mobile phone markets saturated, with Apple rivals producing a wide variety of devices powered by Android software that Google makes available for free.

Apple faces stiff competition from traditional rival Samsung, although the South Korean giant is currently on the back foot after being forced into a massive recall because of exploding batteries of its flagship Galaxy Note 7.

iPhone 7 More Expensive to Make Than iPhone 6s

iPhone 7 More Expensive to Make Than iPhone 6s: IHS

Apple is spending more to manufacture its iPhone 7 smartphone than predecessor iPhone 6s due to features such as a bigger battery and larger storage capacity, according to a teardown by IHS Markit Ltd.

Including $5 in basic manufacturing costs, total cost to manufacture the iPhone 7 mobile rises to $224.80 (roughly Rs. 15,000), $36.89 higher than the business research provider’s estimates for the iPhone 6s.

Apple retails an unsubsidised 32GB iPhone 7 at $649 (roughly Rs. 43,500).

The company unveiled the iPhone 7 with high-resolution cameras and no headphone jack at its annual launch on September 7.

IHS Markit also said on Tuesday the iPhone 7’s Bill Of Materials (BOM), a financial estimate of the raw materials used, was “in line” with flagship smartphones made by rival Samsung but Apple ekes out better margins.

“All other things being equal, Apple still makes more margin from hardware than Samsung, but materials costs are higher than in the past,” said Andrew Rassweiler, senior director of cost benchmarking services at IHS Markit.

IHS Markit has not yet performed a teardown analysis on the larger iPhone 7 Plus.

Supplies of Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus have been exhausted in all shades, and the smaller iPhone 7 has also sold out in the new jet black colour, the company said last week.

Yet, in some markets, such as China, interest in the new phone has been muted, as cheaper local brands amp up their design and marketing.

iPhone 7 New Colour, Features, More Specifications Leaked Ahead of Launch

Apple is about to launch the iPhone 7 in a few hours from now, but the last minute leaks refuse to stop. There is a host of information surfacing online about the iPhone 7 colour variants, specifications details, and waterproofing capabilities. Additionally, a press render of the iPhone 7 seem to have also been leaked giving us a sneak peak at what Apple could be unveiling tonight.

First up, tipster Malignant has leaked the first render image of the iPhone 7, and it testifies to the death of the 3.5mm audio jack. The bottom of the device sees two speaker grilles, with the Lightning port sitting in the centre. The camera bump is protected by the casing ring, and the redesigned antenna bands are also seen.

Remember the Space Blue variant tipped in the early days? Well, if MobileFun is to be believed, then Apple is indeed introducing a Blue variant, but it will be much lighter than what was leaked earlier. The retailer has leaked an image of the Light Blue variant, claiming it to be a real photo of the device. It’s only a matter of hours before we know for sure.

An Italian blog has also leaked a picture showing retail boxes of the iPhone 7. According to iPhoneItalia, the boxes were snapped at manufacturer Foxconn’s site when almost 370,000 units were being prepared for shipment to US, UK, and the Netherlands. The publication also confirms Evan Blass’s September 16 market launch date, citing people close to European carrier Three.

Vietnamese electronics store PhonGee has published few live photos of a working 4.7-inch iPhone 7 as well. The camera is redesigned with a brighter True Tone flash that houses four LEDs. The SIM tray images show a rubber gasket for added waterproofing. The iPhone 7 is expected to come with IPX7 certification, which means it can last for about half an hour in one metre underwater. The pictures also reveal a Dark Black colour variant option that has been heavily rumoured in the past. Apple is expected to unveil a Dark Black and a Glossy Piano Black colour variant for the new iPhone 7. However the Glossy Piano Black is expected to be exclusive to the high storage 256GB storage variant.

In any case, we recommend you to take all of this information with scepticism as official details are now hours away. Rest assured, when the event begins at 10.30pm IST, Gadgets 360 will offer you comprehensive coverage. Stay tuned.
