In an effort to benchmark deep learning on smartphones in the Android ecosystem, researchers from the ETH Zurich Computer Vision Lab last year developed an AI Benchmark application to measure the AI readiness of more than 200 Android devices and 100 mobile SoCs collected in the wild.
The Synced Machine Intelligence Awards 2019 focus is “the power of industry” and the selection process will key in on AI companies’ products, application cases and industry landings — with the most noteworthy companies chosen based on real and objective industry performance.

Figures from nonprofit organization Mental Health America show the severe depression rate for US youth increased from 5.9 to 8.2 percent over the last five years. The numbers provide a sobering glimpse of the shortcomings in mental health care, and some researchers are suggesting AI might be able to address the problem.
“Adversaries and strategic competitors probably will attempt to use deep fakes or similar machine-learning technologies to create convincing — but false — image, audio, and video files to augment influence campaigns directed against the United States and our allies and partners.”
