Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 15 settembre 2018

A new report from Navigant Research examines the current state of smart highway technologies, providing an overview of current and recent test installations, and detailing the influence of automated vehicles and electric vehicles (AVs and EVs).Transportation planning is essential for any city, and the evolution of the smart highway is expected to improve road access and safety for the commuters and vehicles that use it. AVs and EVs are key to achieving these benefits, and updated highway infrastructure is a powerful enabler. Click to tweet: A new report from @NavigantRSRCH examines how cities can utilize new smart highway technology.“Smart highways are a significant element of the smart cities industry,” says Ryan Citron, senior research analyst with Navigant. “Sensors and connectivity, road markings and signs, and electric roads are expected to enable smart highways that deliver reduced congestion, fewer collisions, and cleaner air.” According to the report, smart highway concepts in road marking and signage make it easier for machine vision and other sensors to monitor the local road situation, and new highway sensors can send data reports on road conditions to central service centers that then develop and deliver instructions to the fleet to optimize traffic flow. Navigant Research recommends cities engage in long-term road infrastructure planning, while suppliers and technology developers focus on a modular approach and interoperability, and road construction companies collaborate with their suppliers to develop global solutions.This report, The Convergence of Smart Highways and Smart Cities, examines the current state of smart highway technologies. It provides an overview of some current and recent test installations and examines the influence of AVs and EVs. The study also examines various benefits that will result from the successful implementation of smart highways. Recommendations are provided to road construction firms and suppliers on how to take advantage of the market potential and to government agencies on planning for the future.

BPU Holdings Uses Advanced Technology to Filter Fake News

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 5 agosto 2018

Fake news – it’s a term that has become all too familiar today. With the ever-increasing flow of information, trustworthy news has become increasingly debatable. The journal Science reports false news stories are 70% more likely to be re-tweeted than true stories, true stories take about six times longer to reach an audience and fake news is shared nearly 10 times more than true stories1. BPU Holdings uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and advanced technology in their products and services to omit unreliable information to better diversify the quality of valuable information. ZimGO Polling and Neil’s News Bot use a distributed and scalable filtering processes to manage quality control of fake news to give their users an authentic experience.
ZimGO Polling is BPU’s political forecasting tool that uses Twitter social networks to connect to the empowered citizen in ways not possible with legacy tools. It is the first campaign tool to accurately assess emotional citizen sentiment that provides a competitive advantage for campaign professionals and candidates. It was determined the most valuable citizen information was found on Twitter. However, statistical processing was affected by the high volume of shared posts, re-tweets and spammers. To manage this, our AI interacts with the Twitter API to process streams of duplicates and unwanted noise. After the initial filtering, any re-tweets are discarded so the noise is highly reduced. A second measure is text filtering; distributed and scalable patterns are strained from the high numbers of duplicate tweets without jeopardizing the overall latency of stream results. If we notice the same text coming through, we assume it’s a duplicate. Going further, Similarity Deduplication is something currently being established to work on defining concepts to catch small nuances on a bot posting. In this third layer, we’re looking for small variations; for example, many bots post the same text except for the link and this third layer of filtering would trap those. A fourth level is provided by allowing people to tag posts as spam, which then further trains the AI to look for irrelevant posts.
Neil is BPU’s personal news bot. It is a personal news curator for artificial Intelligence (AI) that is a virtual assistant bringing reputable articles and interesting stories from reliable news sources. Unlike ZimGO Polling, it uses quality control with a white list of about 3,000 sources thoughtfully selected to provide our users with the best news on topics individuals have selected. Secondly, quality scoring is applied by manually checking the white list to ensure they are accurately providing the necessary and requested news the users search. This applies a second measure of filtering to avoid sources that are too short, lack text and contain an influx of links.

Terves Advancing High-Strength, Non-Flammable Nanostructured Magnesium Alloy Technology

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 30 giugno 2018

Terves LLC. (“Terves”) is pleased to announce that it was selected by the U.S. Army and Missile Defense Agency to continue development of novel high-strength, non-flammable, nanostructured magnesium alloys for light-weighting applications. Terves received the Department of Defense (“DoD”) SBIR (Small Business Innovative Research) support to enhance its patent-pending cast and wrought Magnesium alloys derived from its high-temperature, high-strength magnesium alloys currently used in oil and gas applications. These new alloys, with further development, show tremendous potential to save 30% or more in structural weight by replacing cast and wrought 2000, 6000, and 7000 series aluminum alloys in transportation, space, and defense applications.
Replacing steel with aluminum can lead to an ~40% weight savings and using magnesium alloys instead of aluminum can lead to a further weight reduction of ~30%. According to McKinsey’s report titled ‘Lightweight, Heavy Impact’ the use of lightweight materials in just three industries – automotive, aviation, and wind – will increase significantly in volume over the next two decades, creating a market impact of more than $400 billion.“The very high strength, ductility, and mechanical durability at elevated temperatures of these nanostructured low-density magnesium alloys make them excellent candidates for aerospace, defense and transportation lightweighting initiatives. The alloy series was developed based on newly understood ‘Long Period Stacking Order’ (LPSO) nanostructured phases that we have modified using reduced rare earth contents and further microalloying additions to control flammability, corrosion, and to strengthen the primary alpha phase. The resulting product is a lightweight magnesium alloy casting or wrought product with uniform high strength and ductility, directly comparable to the 7000 series aluminum alloys and a metal alternative to carbon fiber composites. The efforts represent DoD-sponsored collaborations initiated through our LIFT (Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow) membership and networking efforts, and we want to recognize LIFT for that role. Specifically, the Missile Defense Agency’s support funds a collaboration with Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), who is helping us optimize thermomechanical processing for producing very high-strength thin-walled structures used in aerospace and defense structures; while the recently selected Army sponsored effort will fund a collaborative effort with Dr Alan Luo’s group at The Ohio State University to develop heat treatable alloy variants for thick-section castings, die castings, plate, and forgings useful for helicopter and potentially armor applications. The casting alloys have the flexibility of being formed or heat treated to produce a final product or produced net shape (such as by high pressure die-casting). Numerous components on U.S. missile defense and fast response weapon platforms would benefit from the reduced weight of higher-strength wrought and cast Magnesium alloys while aerospace and transportation applications would also see benefits. If these high strength and ductility magnesium alloys can be produced at sufficiently low cost, which we believe they can be, there will be a high driving force to use these lightweight materials in many different industries,” said Mr. Andrew Sherman, CEO, Terves.
