Cognitive AI in edge devices will enable the Internet of Things (IoT) to become more than a collection of sensors. AI on a Chip promises a revolution in IoT applications because it delivers actionable intelligence at the edge, where it previously was impossible.
I’ve seen robots make decisions and solve simple problems. You probably see them too, but don’t realize it. Every day, technology helps people spellcheck sentences, categorize emails, and predict traffic. However, Beyond Limits is producing AI software solutions with something new: cognitive intelligence. These advanced systems mimic functions of the human brain to think like you or me. This AI foster situational awareness, hypotheses generation, and human-like reasoning to make informed decisions. Unlike some AI companies that focus on playing games or serving ads, Beyond Limits blends deep learning and machine learning techniques together with symbolic AIs that emulate human intuition. The company’s goal is to create automated solutions that can truly think like humans and magnify human capabilities to help companies stay competitive or transform their business for the future.
At Beyond Limits, we believe the role of AI is to complement, not replace, people by delivering actionable intelligence to human experts. Like many technology optimists, we believe AI could create a world where human abilities are amplified as machines help mankind process, analyse, and evaluate the abundance of data that creates today’s world, allowing humans to spend more time engaged in high-level thinking, creativity, and decision-making.
One serious problem is that of expectation of what AI can really do. At the end of the day, an AI system is educated and trained to solve a particular problem and that is pretty much its entire universe. These systems are not humans, who can freely interact with their environment. They are machines, not people. The question is no longer whether AI will fundamentally change the workplace. It’s happening. The true question is how companies can successfully use AI in ways that enables, not replaces, the human workforce, helping to make humans faster, more efficient and more productive.
“Our goal is to hire top talent, regardless of gender, age, background or culture. We are changing the world with our technology, and we need the brightest minds working at Beyond Limits. Those minds come from all types of people, from all over the world,” says AJ Abdallat, CEO. “Here at Beyond Limits, we welcome the conversation that the industry is having about advancing gender equality in every aspect of the business.”
Oil and gas is one of the largest industrial segments and is a natural fit for AI, according to AJ Abdallat CEO of Glendale, Calif.-based Beyond Limits. Removing friction from port scheduling operations requires a rare form of machine intelligence called cognitive intelligence (or human-like reasoning). Cognitive AI is now being applied to track tankers to determine when they leave port, where they’re going, and how much petroleum or LNG they are transporting. Predicting what is being shipped, plus refinery destination and arrival times, will help traders make smarter decisions. This involves the fusion of the key cognitive capabilities of multi-agent scheduling with reactive recovery, asset management, rule compliance, diagnostics, and prognostics to ensure seamless autonomous operation.
Machine learning is taking over the running of many industries. To some, it’s a sound of rather bad news while to other businesses, its a sign of better days ahead. We know some entrepreneurs have embraced or had experience with machine learning thus we asked them what they think will be the impact of it on business.
WomenHack is a community that aims to empower women in tech by facilitating access and transparency in the industry. WomenHack events are invite-only recruiting events focused on connecting top female software engineers, UI/UX designers, and product managers with opportunities at tech companies around the world. Beyond Limits was honored to attend and spread the word that Beyond Limits is hiring top talent, including AI engineers, data scientists, project managers, and more.
The Tech Tribune staff has compiled the very best tech startups in Glendale, California. In doing our research, we considered several factors including but not limited to:
- Revenue potential
- Leadership team
- Brand/product traction
- Competitive landscape
Additionally, all companies must be independent (un-acquired), privately owned, at most 10 years old, and have received at least one round of funding in order to qualify.
Intelligence is the most powerful and precious resource in existence, but there are countless untapped opportunities for intelligence to make the world a better place. The key is actionable intelligence - which could be harnessed by our digital world where everything can potentially be connected to generate data.
“Most of the work we’ve done with Beyond Limits is to find what relief they can provide to our pain points in the upstream, but we know there will be applications also for the downstream. Beyond Limits is looking at mobility with BP and other partners. We will get proof of concept on its applications before going into deployment. It’s really exciting. We know that Beyond Limits is genuinely cognitive. It’s not just deep learning.”
BP Ventures has invested in artificial intelligence company Beyond Limits. Beyond Limits was previously trialed in deep space exploration. At the time of its investment, BP stated that it planned to use Beyond Limits’ technology for upstream exploration, which involves searching for oil reserves.
