Founded in 2009, SlamTech is a Shanghai-based laser sensor manufacturer whose main products include the low-cost 360-degree laser scanning ranging radar RPLiDAR, the laser-based modular autonomous positioning navigation solution SLAMWARE, and the ZEUS robot service platform for business.
Trashbot uses cameras and sensors to scan discarded items. A machine learning algorithm based on Bayesian classifier sorts the trash for either landfill or recycle. If you dump an unfinished can of Coke, excess liquid will be drained off on a Teflon-coated sheet.
We explore top-notch Swiss AI facilities: starting with deep learning and neural network research at IDSIA in Lugano, to interdisciplinary research at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and University of Basel, and ending with robotics innovations at ETH in Zurich and University of Zurich.
From May 14 to 18, the 30th International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2017) was held in Anchorage, AK, USA. Continuing the long tradition, the conference is organized by the International Neural Network Society (INNS), in cooperation with the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (IEEE-CIS).
