Micro-credentials have emerged as an ideal way for working professionals to become proficient in a specific area through short, non-credit courses that culminate in a competency-based badge. Earning a micro-credential helps fill knowledge gaps, especially for those in the workforce who have limited time and cannot commit to a semester or longer of learning. That said, now working professionals can gain their own competitive edge by adding an artificial intelligence (AI) micro-credential through the University of Florida’s Office of Professional and Workplace Development.
The university and the CIA have entered an agreement to study how artificial intelligence and machine learning applications (AIML) can be used to detect and deter malicious agents that infiltrate computer networks. The work will be carried out by researchers associated with UF’s Florida Institute for National Security.
UF Accelerate client Canaery, thinks it can read the neurons firing in a dog’s olfactory bulb in real-time and, with the help of machine learning, turn the animal into a detection device able to suss out a vast range of molecules, all without the animal having to be specially trained. “This does for scent what machine vision did for sight,” says Gabriel Lavella, Canaery’s founder and chief executive officer.
Sure, it is fun to see an avatar simulate your body movements in real time, but the interactive augmented reality art installation making its way around campus has a serious aim: educating participants about how COVID-19 impacts health and encouraging vaccination.
What if in our attempt to build artificial intelligence we don’t simulate neurons in code and mimic neural networks in Python, but instead build actual physical neurons connected by physical synapses in ways very similar to our own biological brains? That’s precisely what UF startup Rain Neuromorphics, is trying to do: build a non-biological yet very human-style artificial brain.
In a groundbreaking, first-of-its kind event, university scientists, engineers, producers, government agencies and industry officials from throughout the South met at Auburn University to brainstorm ways to use artificial intelligence to help farmers.
In its latest step to promote artificial intelligence (AI) and data science and integrate AI across the curriculum, the University of Florida announced that it will create an Artificial Intelligence Academic Initiative Center.
Signaling its ongoing commitment to collaboration in the areas of artificial intelligence and data science, the University of Florida is participating in an academic conference to address the potential of artificial intelligence, robotics and automation in agriculture.
The University of Florida announced this week a new collaboration with tech giant IBM to launch a comprehensive skills program designed to extend UF’s vision to be an international leader in artificial intelligence, data science, fintech, and other related technologies that can help solve society’s biggest challenges.
Agriculture Intelligence, a precision agriculture-science company combining automation, remote sensing and artificial intelligence to provide cloud-based, precision data for specialty crops, has announced a multi-year partnership with NAU Country for its award-winning AI platform Agroview.
