Few-shot learning AI accurately 'senses' home appliances

NIALM (Non-Intrusive Appliance Load Monitoring) can "sense" appliances using electrical power. NIALM is used in homes and small buildings. For this, NIALM can require hundreds of labeled power signal images from each appliance ...

The complexity of artificial intelligence

Artificial Intelligence, or AI, makes us look better in selfies, obediently tells us the weather when we ask Alexa for it, and rolls out self-drive cars. It is the technology that enables machines to learn from experience ...
