VF is utilizing a groundbreaking form of automation—by way of robots—to heighten a safe work environment for associates that increases productivity three-fold.
A crew of 11 robots have joined VF associates at a distribution center (DC) in Martinsville, VA, for a pilot program that launched in August 2020. The bots, manufactured by Locus Robotics, create an ergonomic workspace and help support associates by increasing social distancing in response to COVID-19. With health and safety more critical than ever and productivity up 63%, VF is looking to bring bots to DCs throughout the globe.
The future of mobile AI is being led by talented women across the board, that being in the creation of new software, hardware or in deep in the weeds of research. Here at Qualcomm we depend on our women engineers to fuel the most cutting-edge solutions we offer. So, earlier this month we set down with MIT Tech Review in a discussion about the importance of women driving AI innovation and explored some of the latest advancements brought through their work. Advancements ranging from our AI Model Efficiency Toolkit (AIMET) to Duolingo’s birdbrain model were topics explored in depth.

While digital infrastructure might not be the cure to COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, it is undoubtedly helping the world cope in many ways. More and more, governments, enterprises, healthcare, and even the education sector are using the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) to autonomously fight the effects of the pandemic as it continues to spread globally.
Here are six ways IoT and AI are helping curb the pandemic:
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is poised to become the next big information revolution. As we move into an increasingly data-driven world, there is a critical need to build an AI-ready workforce. How are India’s educators and educational institutions gearing up to tap into this huge opportunity?
Among the top 10 trends that will impact the jobs of the future in the Indian economic landscape, increasing adoption of new technology, advances in AI, and expansion of education are particularly significant.

Technology has always played a critical role in the healthcare industry. However, recent advancements are driving a revolution in capabilities and opportunities to improve the health and wellness of people around the world. And at a time when such advancements are sorely needed, I might add.
In the wildlife reserves of East Africa, elephants, rhinos, gorillas, and other large mammals are hunted by poachers. All that stands between these animals and harm’s way are small teams of park rangers and conservationists. The danger is very real for these species on the brink: A staggering 35,000 African elephants are killed each year, putting them just a decade away from extinction, according to the non-profit RESOLVE.

Imagine a world where your car monitors your daily morning commute while safely parked in your driveway. On one particular morning, it detects a major collision along your intended route. Simultaneously, it checks your calendar and sees you have a critical meeting at 9:00 am with your most important client. Realizing you will miss your meeting if you wake at the normal time, your car alerts your smart watch to sound it’s alarm 30 minutes early. In just the blink of an eye, a potentially significant business disaster has been averted.
