With the substantial amount of capital behind global industrial automation, the industrial robotics industry will continue on a healthy growth trajectory, supported by numerous qualitative and quantitative benefits, including cost reduction, quality improvement, increased production and improved occupational health and safety.

In the wake of the pandemic, we are seeing a major push for increased automation and robotics, especially in the service sector in the United States. Indeed, many companies consider that repetitive tasks are performed with high safety, less expense and reduced likelihood of service interruption thanks to robotics rather than relying on human workers.

Robotics is increasingly being used to improve automation in business, industry and the military. Additionally, robots are finding their way into more and more consumer use cases as mainstream concerns fade and acceptance increases in terms of benefits versus risks. While many consumer applications continue to be largely lifestyle-oriented, businesses, industrial and military organizations utilize both ground and air robots that are used for a variety of repetitive, tedious and/or hazardous tasks. Adoption and usage are expected to increase rapidly with improvements in artificial intelligence, robotic form factors and fitness for purpose, cloud computing, and related business models, such as robotics as what service.

The next decade will see a huge influence of AI on robotics. The next generation of robotics will include many pre-integrated AI technologies such as machine vision, speech and voice recognition, touch sensors and gesture controls. AI has enabled consumer robots to learn while performing various tasks, including cleaning, controlling household appliances, reading, butler services and many more. Further improvements in AI and related technologies such as cognitive computing and sensor fusion are expected to enable consumer robots to take on increasingly difficult tasks.

The extent to which AI capabilities in robotics optimize operational efficiency and effectiveness will largely depend on the contextual capabilities of connected devices. This means that the relationship between IoT, AI and robotics will be closely intertwined. AI helps robots learn and become more efficient, but both technologies rely on IoT networks to share information between devices and applications.

In the longer term, the editor envisions many robotics and automation solutions involving several types of AI as well as integration in other key areas such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and data analysis. data. The combination of AI and IoT has the potential to dramatically accelerate the benefits of robotics for consumer, business, industry and government market segments.

Major industry verticals are beginning to see improved operational efficiency through the smart combination of AI and robotics. The long-term perspective of these technologies is that they will integrate with many other different technologies and provide autonomous decision-making on behalf of humans, both directly and indirectly through many processes, products and services.

The military robotics market is an important segment both from an R&D perspective (e.g. many robotic innovations are funded by government/military projects) as well as in corporate and consumer markets such as the field of public safety. The consumer robotics industry is in its infancy stage, but is set to surpass all other industries in scale, variety and long-term impact.

We are seeing substantial overall industry growth across a wide range of robot types that perform various tasks such as household cleaning, personalized healthcare services, home security, self-driving cars, robotic entertainment and personal care services, daily schedule management and various support tasks.

As the healthcare system becomes overburdened, budgets are denied, and employees leave in droves, there is a growing need to develop solutions that will enable the expansion of human capabilities – without humans being involved.

Consider, for example, a person undergoing surgery. The surgeon will operate for a few hours, but later the patient may need several hours of physical therapy to achieve the desired results. Due to lack of staff and funding for physiotherapy, patients are sent home to exercise on their own. There they encounter obstacles, ranging from boredom to performing exercises incorrectly in the absence of professional guidance.

Professor Shelly Levy-Tzedek believes home robots can take on some work tasks, and is gradually proving it in her lab at Ben-Gurion University.

Levy-Tzedek, a biomedical engineer by training with a Ph.D. from MIT, focuses on developing social robots to aid in effective self-training. She uses commercially available robots and programs them according to her needs. The term “social bots” refers to bots that can chat, demonstrate actions, remind people of tasks, help with app usage, and more. Social robots are gradually becoming more and more popular in the public space. “We worked with Pepper, for example, a humanoid robot that you sometimes see in hotels in Asia and in airports. It’s mainly used for marketing purposes.”

Levy-Tzedek programmed Pepper to help post-stroke patients, where physical therapy might look something like this: the patient reaches out for a cup, sensors tell the robot the location of the cup, it’s i.e. the degree of success. The robot can then give the patient instructions on what to do: put the cups in order, invert them, etc., at increasing levels of difficulty. There are other physiotherapy modules, such as hanging keys on a rack, and a memory exercise to recall the names of objects.

“It should feel like playing a game, increase motivation. It should be fun. Boredom, frustration and lack of feedback are major factors why people fail to do physiotherapy at house. One of our tasks is designed as an escape room. You have to find an ID card, type four numbers, open a drawer and find keys. In fact, you perform a series of motor functions and cognitive skills of daily life.Another task is designed as a game of poker or blackjack.

Not all robots need artificial intelligence

In one experiment, Levy-Tzedek examined how the relationship with the robot affects long-term rehabilitation care outcomes. “Usually academic robot experiments test one-time encounters, but the advantage of robots is their ability to encourage persistence,” she says.

In the experiment, the subjects were divided into three groups: one trained with a physiotherapist and received exercise recommendations, but without a robot; the second received the same recommendations with the possibility of exercising with a robot; And the third received recommendations with support in the form of instructions on a computer screen.

“We observed that despite physiotherapy – for hand functionality – the control group did not improve at all. The group that received instructions via a computer screen improved by 63% and the robot group s improved by 90%. This experiment was carried out as part of the doctoral thesis of Dr. Ronit Feingold-Polak, advised by Levy-Tzedek.

Somewhat surprisingly, Levy-Tzedek’s robots do not have a high level of artificial intelligence (AI). “In the future, robots are expected to have limited levels of artificial intelligence capabilities; they will be able to detect and respond to compensatory movement patterns,” she says. What is missing in the lack of self-training is feedback on those compensatory movements that cause patients to make incorrect movements in an exercise by reaching for an object, for example. The lab is writing an algorithm that will allow the robot to detect compensatory movements, offer suggestions and also say “Well done” if a compensatory movement is not performed.

If the robot is not compatible with AI, does this ruin the illusion that it is intelligent?

“Not necessarily. We had patients who treated him like a human being. For example, in our early trials, he sometimes made mistakes, and there were people who said, ‘I’m human and I make mistakes, so, okay, he can make mistakes too. Others said they loved him and enjoyed meeting him. People said, “He’s not judgmental,” even though the physical therapists weren’t judgmental either. comments, it will be perceived as a judgement. This is something we will have to check.

Judgement can also be positive. If you’ve made an effort, you might want an intelligent being to see it and appreciate it.

“We record each event and relay the information to the physiotherapist so that he can praise the patient for his perseverance.”

A dedicated room has been set up for the system (robot and peripheral equipment) at the ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran rehabilitation village near Ofakim. Levy-Tzedek’s lab is currently working on a smaller, simpler, and cheaper home-use version. “My vision is that the product will also be available for rental from Yad Sarah [the national non-profit that loans medical and rehabilitative equipment and other services at nominal or no cost].

Adults feel connected – children, not so much

The Levy-Tzedek laboratory studies human-robot interactions to learn how to build them. “It’s very important that the robot doesn’t repeat sentences too often,” says Levy-Tzedek, “but randomness isn’t ideal either. For example, a joke shouldn’t be repeated multiple times. That’s boring or in poor taste., and reinforces that the robot is not human. So maybe partial coincidence, and humor very rarely.

“We also observed that body movements had to be culturally appropriate. For example, a robot from Japan made a movement that was supposed to indicate joy, and Israelis asked, ‘Why is he angry? What did I do wrong??'”

Levy-Tzedek also points to intergenerational differences. “In fact, the adults accepted it as an independent entity and said they felt connected to it. Some young people did, but others said it was ‘scary’. We don’t know. not exactly why. After all, these young people grew up with technology and with people they only know through a screen, and yet they were the ones who said it was too weird for them. When asked how they would like to tell the robot that they had completed a training session – by pressing a button or stroking its hand – adults preferred stroking the hand, and younger children, pressing a button.”

A fur seal to reduce pain

In another experiment, Levy-Tzedek used a robot sold as a toy in the shape of a stuffed seal. “We looked at pain endurance in healthy volunteers, with or without the presence of the robot. We found that they felt less pain and fared better when the robot was present and talking to them, and the situation improved even more when they caressed him or hugged him.”

What makes some people feel like they’re making a real connection with a robot? Is it related to the personality of this person?

“We found no difference in the measurements we know of. We speculate that specific measurements can be developed for a willingness to accept the illusion of humanity in inanimate objects.”

The robotic seal was also not compatible with the AI. “It’s very complicated to develop a reliable artificial intelligence,” admits Levy-Tzedek. “On the other hand, the illusion of attachment, as we have demonstrated, does not necessarily depend on it, and can even destroy it. The AI ​​speech recognition for Hebrew is really bad. ability to understand spoken Hebrew is almost non-existent. certainly exists when it comes to understanding different accents, or stroke-affected speech. The day a robot will understand our patients, and they will be able to hold a conversation with it , is still a long way off.

In the short term, even robots with an understanding of the English language will not convince anyone to suspend disbelief. said Levy-Tzedek. “I don’t know of any robot that can really hold a conversation that could deceive us.” Therefore, she says, it is important to manage expectations. “At the end of the day, the patient knows it’s a training tool and not a friend, so there’s no disappointment here. We don’t expect to have a real conversation with our medical device, even if the the fact that he’s humanoid is part of what does the job. This duality is something we don’t fully understand.

Which is better: virtual reality or robots?

Levy-Tzedek’s lab also studies rehabilitation in virtual reality conditions. “We investigated people’s preferences for cognitive training. Today, this is done using software that shows you, for example, a series of shapes in different colors, and you have to click when you see a certain sequence. So we divided the subjects into three groups. One performed the task like this, the second received instructions from a social robot – including comments, conversation, pause from meditation and empathetic comments like “Yes, that exercise was difficult”. collect shapes.

“In previous experiments we’ve run comparing VR with robots, the robots usually won, but we suspected this might have happened because VR couldn’t show its true abilities. We wanted to let each tool demonstrate its maximum capabilities, then compare. And in fact, in this experiment, we got opposite results: 66% preferred virtual reality, even if there were also complaints, like nausea, or the helmet being uncomfortable. We believe that in the future it may be possible to combine elements, sometimes robots, other times virtual reality, to keep things interesting.”

Today, Levy-Tzedek is designing a robot for patients who have suffered from illnesses other than stroke. “Our lab team comes from different fields – clinical, engineering, psychology and cognition. Our partners come from education and philosophy. I also believe in cooperative planning. When we design a robot, we include patients and their families from the start. We ask clinicians what they see in their clinics that is important, and through this ongoing conversation with all stakeholders, we build very positive interactions.”

As close as he can remember, St. Louis-area educator David Williams was turned down at least six times by banks while seeking loans for his future academy.

These refusals came despite his collateral, good credit, and help from his aunt who is a longtime educator and stood ready to help guide his embryonic business – a center to teach the STEAM curriculum to children from birth to 13 years.

“It’s a struggle,” Williams said, as a soothing lullaby played in the background at her Williams Academy on Natural Bridge. “It’s a challenge to get started because we’re not funded properly.”

For reasons ranging from racism and redlining to more subtle factors like not knowing the right people, black-owned businesses like Williams’s have continually been undercapitalized compared to their white counterparts.

In the wake of the nation’s reckoning on race, local and national organizations are pumping more money into black-owned businesses in hopes of closing the stubbornly persistent wealth gap.

Williams eventually secured at least $10,000 in grants through Greater St. Louis Inc.’s Diverse Business Accelerator and other sources.

Overcoming the biggest hurdle — finding at least $300,000 to buy and renovate the 18,000-square-foot building that houses the academy — came from Justine Petersen, a nonprofit financial services organization that works with people in low and middle income. Williams said the aid started in 2020 with money for a down payment and accelerated last year after facing potential foreclosure when the COVID-19 pandemic blocked its ability to track the rate of the mortgage.

Justine Petersen stepped in to buy the building, he said. A spokeswoman confirmed that Justine Petersen was a “financial partner” of Williams Academy, but declined to elaborate.

As Accelerator Director and co-owner of a small business, Lakesha Mathis sees the direct link between the anemic flow of funds to Black-owned businesses and the subsequent scarcity of wealth that can be passed down from generation to generation in black families.

A report by American Progress, using information from the Federal Reserve Bank, showed that in 2019 the average amount of “liquid assets,” those that can easily be converted into cash, was four times higher in white households. – $50,301 – than in black households. – $12,592.

Almost 21% of white households included a business owner, compared to 5.5% for black households. It matters because black contractors who have employees tend to hire black people.

“Our impact on the wealth gap is to increase our abilities as individuals and business owners to earn more resources,” said Mathis, co-owner with her husband of List Towing. “When we don’t have the funds to put the proper systems in place, to hire and pay people, our businesses are limited in their ability to generate revenue. Therefore, the wealth gap remains. So the goal…for the companies we work with is to become employers, because that’s where the real revenue is, the real money in most businesses.

The COVID-19 pandemic, which has hit market segments with a high concentration of Black-owned businesses, such as retail and hospitality, has made a bad situation worse.

According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, at least 40% of revenue from black-owned businesses is concentrated in just 30 US counties. That’s about 1% of all the counties in the country. About two-thirds of those counties — 19 out of 30 — are areas with the highest number of COVID-19 cases, according to the Fed.

In the wake of the 2020 filmed murder of George Floyd, as protesters took to the streets, some of the nation’s largest corporations released statements committing millions to support black businesses, some of which are already in the hands of contractors.

In June 2020, the company then known as Facebook [now Meta] committed $200 million to support Black-owned businesses and organizations. This included $75 million in cash grants and ad credits to support Black-owned businesses and nonprofits that serve the Black community.

All Black-Owned Business Program grants have been distributed to more than 10,000 small businesses across the country and the program is now closed, said a Meta spokeswoman who did not break down the grants by state. .

Since its inception about 10 years ago, Arch Grants has awarded grants to at least 30 Black-owned or Black-led businesses — money that didn’t require the founders to give up a stake.

Last year, grants were awarded to at least eight black-owned businesses, including Bask & Bloom Essentials, a beauty brand focused on multi-textured curly hair; Equalizer Games, an AI software platform for sports and education that uses virtual coaching and interactive training to help athletes improve players’ IQ and PlaBook, a technology company that uses artificial intelligence , natural language processing and speech recognition to help children learn to read more effectively. Businesses are either locally based or committed to expanding in the St. Louis area. pursue Arch Grant’s Donald M. Suggs Excellence in Entrepreneurship Award. Suggs is publisher and editor of The St. Louis American.

The Ferrings pledged an additional $500,000 over the next 5 years to continue the “Donald M. Suggs Excellence in Entrepreneurship” award, with the request that grants be all awarded to Black-led businesses that are determined by our process as being the best -rank.

The application process for the Arch Scholarships 2022 begins on March 18 and closes on April 15.

Funds from organizations such as Arch Grants pump money into businesses without the repayment and interest requirements of a loan and without the equity participation required by most venture capitalists.

But the grant model, which typically involves thousands of dollars in aid, may not be an option for growing black-owned businesses looking for a bigger cash injection.

“The challenge is if you’re a $10 or $15 million business, with the ability to grow to a $30 million business, but you need $5 million, there’s very little or no of grantors out there, writing $5 million to grant checks,” said Sandra M. Moore, chief impact officer and managing director of St. Louis-based investment advisory firm Advantage Capital.

“You’re expected to grow, but you started behind the eight ball,” she added. “So you hit a wall. You get to a point where there are no more subsidies.

Last month, Advantage Capital, in partnership with the National Minority Supplier Development Council’s Business Consortium Fund, announced the launch of a fund dedicated to providing access to growth capital to minority-owned businesses through methods such as than loans.

Moore said the program, which includes support from major lenders including US Bank and Midwest BankCentre, is designed to avoid some of the common pitfalls black entrepreneurs encounter when approaching the local banker, including slim reasons for rejection. and onerous conditions if the loan is granted.

“All the data indicates that minority companies are … valued differently,” Moore said. “When they get the loan, they usually get a lower percentage than their white counterparts, which means they still remain undercapitalised.”

With the new fund – which Moore said did not yet have a name and fund size that could be made public – underwriters will look at companies “through the lens of what they are going to do in the future as opposed to what they are, what they have done in the past versus what they are now.

“You can apply the investment criteria in a way that takes into consideration things that we wouldn’t normally consider so that you can structure an investment in a way that’s going to help them grow.”

The fund’s organizers plan to begin deploying capital to minority-owned businesses in the coming months.

No one interviewed by The American expects the problem to be resolved quickly. Mathis said he saw more conversations about solutions than actual solutions.

Some entrepreneurs have turned to revenue-based financing like that offered by Toronto-based Clearco, which uses app-rating AI that doesn’t discriminate based on facial recognition, industry, or location. product, a spokeswoman said.

Meanwhile, Williams said he and his team have been “applying for grants like crazy.”

“It took us so long, from 2019 to January 2022, to be up and running,” said Williams, fresh off her successful effort to nap a toddler. “We just weren’t funded properly.”

Can Artificial Intelligence replace teachers?

Raghav Gadgil

Recently, I came across an article that talked about the applications of artificial intelligence (AI) in teacher training programs. The authors were pretty confident in simulating the process of human intelligence by machines, especially in activities involving cognition, reasoning, planning, voice recognition, problem solving, perception, etc. the most sophisticated ones that make the stock market work and have made life easier. The article emphasizes using AI for a personalized curriculum, identifying gaps in understanding and making personalized suggestions, resolving difficulties by answering questions, and more. Such large AI integration projects would require huge amounts of data to be fed as input to the algorithm or depend on machine learning to do so.

“Teaching is a profession that creates other professions”, explains an anonymous person. First, policy makers should not view teachers as algorithms that operate on a set of instructions. A teacher continues to mold themselves into new skins as experience enriches their mind. A teacher’s job is non-repetitive, structured and well-defined, exactly the opposite of what an algorithm is good for. A+B doesn’t always equal C for a teacher, but for an AI it does. AI research is advancing at a pioneering speed. But scientists aren’t yet able to separate how electrical signals in the brain translate into thoughts or feelings. They are not yet able to insert “emotions” into the algorithm script. “Empathy” can probably never be automated through a machine. Therefore, an AI will only respond to a certain limited set of situations by providing countless learning options to the student. Here they miss a crucial point: students’ ability to learn also depends on the teacher’s hand-to-face gestures, the vividness of the concepts created in imaginative minds, the connection made with eye contact , the ability to recognize the learning difficulty experienced by the student, integrating all of this into the AI ​​is a difficult task. Also, AI has not yet entered the realm of humor and understanding sarcasm. Humans are gregarious in nature, and children are more so.

Humans are afflicted with decision-making problems and biases, as psychologists Daniel Kahneman, Amos Tversky, Richard Thaler and others have pointed out. If such biases and flaws are embedded in the code that develops an AI, imagine the cascading effect that would have, if it were a self-learning algorithm, especially if all the machines beyond borders are connected. The software itself will be bitten by confirmation bias that will snowball and have devastating consequences. Even if such AI is used in teacher training programs, these biases will cross brains for eternity. If such a problem goes unnoticed, the consequences are unimaginable. The quality of teachers trained in this way will depend entirely on the humans who wrote the code. Such a loophole cannot be justified.

LA Care, the nation’s largest public health plan, is being criticized for delaying care for many poor and at-risk members. Meanwhile, Microsoft is set to buy artificial intelligence and speech-recognition company Nuance; the nursing home industry is pushing for regulation of personnel agencies; and more.

Los Angeles Times: LA County Health Plan Fined for Treatment Delays

A cancer patient enrolled in a health insurance plan serving the poorest and most vulnerable residents of Los Angeles County went untreated as his health rapidly deteriorated, according to state regulators. Another registrant was left “in extreme pain” for weeks awaiting treatment. The treatment of a third patient, diagnosed with lymphoma and who had less than a year to live, has been delayed for more than two months. This patient left the plan, LA Care, for another insurance in a desperate attempt to save his life. (Dolan and Mejia, 3/4)

AP: LA County health plan fined $55 million over health care failures

LA Care, the nation’s largest public health plan, was fined $55 million for failing to authorize care for thousands of poor and at-risk members, causing health-threatening treatment delays, California regulators announced Friday. The fines — by far the largest in state history — were imposed on the Los Angeles County health plan by the state’s Department of Managed Health Care and Department of Health Services. (3/4)

In other healthcare industry news –

Stat: Microsoft closes $16 billion acquisition of Nuance

The next great AI healthcare experiment can now begin. Microsoft completed a $16 billion acquisition of Nuance Communications on Friday, launching a plan to leverage its voice recognition software and other artificial intelligence capabilities to seize what the tech giant sees as an opportunity $500 billion market. Executives told STAT the plan is to bundle Nuance’s software products with Microsoft’s cloud infrastructure to more seamlessly deliver AI tools to vendors, payers and life sciences companies. An early example is a medical imaging service that Nuance launched using technology from Microsoft last fall, which combines a range of radiology tools into a single portal. (Ross, 3/4)

Modern healthcare: Nursing homes wage state-focused campaign to regulate staffing agencies

The nursing home industry is launching a lobbying offensive in several states to limit what healthcare staffing agencies can charge providers, but efforts are facing fierce headwinds from agencies, lawmakers , nurses and, in some cases, hospitals. The wave of legislation in states like Ohio and Pennsylvania comes amid a pandemic that has seen rates for traveling nurses soar, due to increased demand for their services. It means higher staffing costs for hospitals and nursing homes, which have accused agencies of “price gouging” and profiting from a pandemic. Providers argue that something must be done to rein in recruitment agencies, and with action unlikely at the federal level, nursing homes are turning to state legislatures. (Hellman, 3/4)

AP: University of Louisiana restores master’s degree in psychiatric nursing

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is now offering a graduate nursing concentration in psychiatric mental health, starting in fall 2022. Registered registered nurses can apply for a master’s degree program that will qualify them to take a national certification exam, the university’s College of Nursing & Health. Sciences said in a press release. (3/5)

Traders who put their money into major US indices have enjoyed respectable returns over the past five years. Apart from two market corrections, the current market correction was caused in part by the Russian-Ukrainian conflict and the stock market crash of 2020.

Almost as good as traders of major US indices have had in the past 5 years, many of the world’s hottest discretionary manufacturing, technology and clean energy stocks have offered even higher returns. Bulls that took the opportunity on these names were rewarded with traits that outperformed much of the broader market.

GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME)

GameStop Stock Hits an All-Time High as Short Sellers Clash with Redditors

Picture. Polygon

One year ago, on January 28, 2021, the price of a single share of GameStop, a struggling video game provider, hit an all-time high of $483. It was almost 200 times the low it had reached ten months before, and almost 30 times its price at the start of the year. GameStop was the most traded stock in America on one of its busiest trading days. The surge in activity has left retail brokers unable to meet capital calls from the settlement system, forcing them to pause buying a handful of shares

Shareholders of GameStop (NYSE: GME) lost ground in the market on Thursday as the stock fell 3% at 11 a.m. ET compared to a 0.4% decline in the broader S&P500. The drop came on top of significant short-term losses for investors. GameStop shares are down more than 20% so far this year, compared to an 8% decline for the market. Thursday’s drop came after a rival retailer announced its own results for the holiday season.
