Researchers are building tools so officials can use data to learn how to rebuild communities devastated by natural disasters. Artificial intelligence lets computers predict and find insights from that data.
By analyzing historical disaster information, publicly available census data and predictive models of risk and resilience, tools will be able to identify and prioritize key decisions, like what kinds of infrastructure investments to make.
Computers and robots can act as doctors. This idea was seen in the movie Baymax which gives us a look at what healthcare may look like in the future – we will get care of all kinds from robots, not just humans. The robot in the film looks like a marshmallow man and is designed to be non-threatening and huggable,
AWS announced the preview launch of Braket (named after the common notation for quantum states), its own quantum computing service. It’s not building its own quantum computer, though. Instead, it’s partnering with D-Wave, IonQ and Rigetti and making their systems available through its cloud. In addition, it’s also launching the AWS Center for Quantum Computing and AWS Quantum Solutions Lab.With Braket, developers can get started on building quantum algorithms and basic applications and then test them in simulations on AWS, as well as the quantum hardware from its partners.
