On 13 and 14 November, the VDE became the capital for future technologies, on its 125th anniversary!

At the VDE Tec Summit 2018, almost 190 speakers presented and discussed visionary digital ideas. Among them our CEO and President of KI-Verband Jörg Bienert who showed the potential of AI, expectations and how our services can contribute to the market needs.

Also, he emphasized the role of KI Verband and its essential role in supporting Germany in catching up with new technologies.

The highlight: the anniversary evening with keynote speeches on technology policy by Federal Economics Minister Peter Altmaier and Siemens CEO Joe Kaeser and the big birthday party - including a trip into space to the international space station ISS.

Thank you Tecsummit for this exciting journey!

Immediately after the federal government had presented its AI strategy last week, our CEO and President of the German AI Association was giving an interview at the daily evening news on Tagesschau.de. During this interview, also the products of RAYPACK.AI GmbH were shown, emphasizing a range object and person recognition.

The AI strategy is a very comprehensive document with 77 individual measures. However, since concrete implementation plans including associated budget are mainly lacking, a short-term concretization is necessary. "The strategy paper is a good starting point for an intensive process, which must now be started immediately with all participants. Otherwise, this is just a nice collection of ideas."

Have you ever wanted to make objects disappear from an image?

Now, DeepAngel can make this happen. Developed by researches at MIT, DeepAngel is an Artificial Intelligence that erases objects from photographs by using neural network. This algorithm uses Detectron from Facebook AI Research for object recognition and DeepFill for impainting using a neural network. This means that objects to be removed are detected by Detectron and painted over by DeepFill in such a way that they can hardly be distinguished from the background.

Over 2,66 million people watched the interview that our CTO Gary Hilgemann gave to the ARD, Germany’s largest TV broadcaster, yesterday. During the interview, the amazing possibilities that AI has created were emphasized as well as the distinct advantages of our services and the tremendous need for investments in development and research in Germany.

RAYPACK.AI and it’s sister company Rebotnix-for the edge hardware-are specializing in Visual Computing and provides customized highly-scalable AI software solutions that power manufacturing, quality control and other fundamental business processes on a multinational level. To achieve that, we are using Rebotnix Gustav-a highly reliable hardware device- as well as other devices, which among others, makes it easy for everyone to use our Visual Analyzer platform.

Our special thanks go to the report team Munich, Fabian Mader and colleagues for their good overview of the status of AI in Germany.

Ever wanted to dance like Michael Jackson or a prima ballerina, but you have two left feet? Thanks to a new AI algorithm, you can now get closer to this dream – at least on video!

See yourself:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCBTZh41Ris

This video shows the AI algorithm developed by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley in action. Their approach is described in the paper "Everybody Dance Now".

In this source video, the posture is detected and presented as a so-called "pose stick figure". This posture is then transferred to the person in the target video.

For this process to be temporally coherent, a unique Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) is used. Also, another GAN is used to make a face as detailed and realistic as possible.

This AI algorithm opens up new possibilities for video editing. In the future, anyone can use AI algorithms to perform movements and actions on video that they are not able to do. This advancement in AI makes it almost impossible to distinguish between real and animated video. Except for the many advantages, this new technology also presents some threats. So, for example, you cannot know any more if a person on tape was doing the movement him-/herself.
