Sherlock Holmes with AI
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev- Israeli Police AI Program
Israel is a global center of innovation in a number of sectors, including 3D Printing, cancer research and Artificial Intelligence. Researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev are putting AI to work to predict, deter and fight crime. It's fascinating research developing AI innovation that could be highly beneficial to fight crime globally. You might call the program "Sherlock Holmes empowered by artificial intelligence."
Israeli researchers are using AI tools, incorporating advanced cyber and big data, to predict and prevent crime. They believe they're on the threshold of the next big crime-fighting breakthrough. Specifically, analyzing big data to uncover patterns that result in crime prediction and prevention. It's an AI pre-emptive strike on crime.
University Center for Computational Criminology
The University just launched the Center for Computational Criminology. The Center Director Prof. Lior Rokach told The Jerusalem Post: "the AI revolution will prove to be even more significant than DNA testing for law enforcement, providing them with unprecedented investigative tools and new sources of evidence."
Academic-Police AI Teaming
University researchers and police are working side by side to develop new AI and machine learning tools for crime fighting. The tools will be used to combat cybercrime, which is accelerating globally and traditional crime.
Ben-Gurion is a recognized international leader in cybersecurity and big data.

Robot, Cut My Lawn Source: Husqvarna Mowers Robo Mowers Powered by Batteries - No Gas It's at the top of my robotic wish list. A robot lawn mower. No astronomical bills and upselling from lawn service companies. Just a nicely cut lawn and no hassles. Innovation seems to be knocking at the front door with news on robotic mowers. Green Robots at the Cutting Edge There's a slew of new robot mowers. Models include Worx Landroid for smaller lawns, Honda that cuts and feeds lawns, Robomow for all-purpose mowing and Husqvarna that's loaded with cell & GPS tech. These mowers aren't cheap. Prices range from $1000 to $3500. They're powered by rechargeable batteries so they're quiet. You pay more for online enhancements. And, if your lawn is loaded with trees and hills, your robot mower is going to be a lot more expensive. Grass Vacuums Robot mowers look a lot like big robot vacuums such as iRobot's Roomba.

1st Test for CTE, Sports-Related, Traumatic Brain Injuries in the Living Source: Stock images of football players Breakthrough Research and Discoveries by Boston University Scientists CTE is the danger for players inherent in any contact sport. Repeated hard hits to and rattling of the head in the course of games taking a cumulative toll and resulting in traumatic brain injury CTE which is a fatal disease. Until now, there was no way to detect it in the living. The only reference points for doctors were changes in mood and behavior in the patient following a bad hit to the head and concussion.. But now, there is a brain scan test to detect the abnormal protein tau which is an indicator that the disease condition is present. It's an important breakthrough just announced by scientists at Boston University.

Superstar Robot Packers Source: CMC CartonWrap Superstar Customers The Italian packaging company CMC in the medieval town of Citta di Castello has robot machines at the cutting edge of 2019 filling some very big orders for big clients and it delivers. The robotic packaging machine is called CartonWrap. It can box and seal 600 to 1000 items of every shape and size every hour, 24/7, including in tailor made boxes. Clients of the automated packaging machines include Amazon, Walmart and Gucci. Big Business in Italy CMC and CartonWrap are one of 630 companies in Italy making automated packaging machines. This is the new robotic, automated economy and it is one of Italy's fastest growing industries. In fact, the sector is accelerating 9X's faster than the overall Italian economy. It's another example of robotic technology cutting time, costs and in this case packaging waste and creating a whole new avenue of global business that's a disruptor.
