How to use Microsoft Hyper-V on Windows 10 to Create Virtual Machines

Kevin Stratvert provides a step-by-step tutorial, learn how you can use Microsoft Hyper-V to create virtual machines. Hyper-V enables running virtualized computer systems on top of a physical host. These virtualized systems can be used and managed just as if they were physical computer systems, however they exist in virtualized and isolated environment. Special software […]

Drones And AI Help Combat The San Francisco Bay’s Trash Problem

Here’s a great use case for AI and Drones to help with a common environmental problem. With drone photography, “we can track all of the trash in a creek, river, or stream, examine how it’s distributed, and then apply machine-learning algorithms to analyze those images as often as we want,” Hale says.

Leveraging Exaflops Performance to Remediate Nuclear Waste

Here’s an interesting project to use AI to deal with nuclear waste. The researchers leveraged physics-informed generative adversarial networks (“GANs”). Nuclear waste storage sites are a subject of intense controversy and debate; nobody wants the radioactive remnants in their backyard. Now, a collaboration between Berkeley Lab, Pacific Northwest National University (PNNL), Brown University and Nvidia […]

Artificial Intelligence Helps Cut Food Waste

Each day around a third of all food harvested or produced around the globe is wasted. This means that about 1.3 billion tons of food feeds no one.  IKEA’s restaurants serve 680 million people each year and the company takes food waste seriously.  IKEA has enlisted AI in its sustainability efforts. IKEA is a proponent of the […]
