Image analytics using AI and neuromorphic computing

Cameras and sensors create a continuous stream of data, which in many cases needs to be analysed directly at the place of origin. IBM scientists are using brain-inspired processors and Artificial Intelligence to interpret image data. Image data can be from video cameras, image sensors, or hyperspectral imaging cameras, which take pictures of the electromagnetic spectrum invisible to the human eye.

Beefing up building energy efficiency with pre-cooling

In commercial buildings in most developed nations, the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems consume between 40% and 70% of the building’s total energy demand. As a result, energy bills are often in the top-three of a building’s operating expenses. IBM Research – Australia is addressing this challenge with an IoT-based solution called BEEF-UP or Building Energy Efficiency Using Pre-cooling.
