Robo suitcase: Japan’s new invention for visually impaired


IBM Japan and its four partners are developing a robot in the shape of a suitcase which uses artificial intelligence to guide the visually impaired.
Chieko Asakawa, a person of Japan IBM has problems with vision. Taking Adamawa as inspiration, the robot uses a battery, a sensor and a camera to find out the obstacles and warns the users.
It lets users know if anyone is approaching near or any other amenities are there in the surrounding, via the audio system. This system works as the “eyes” of them.
“It is impossible for people with visual impairments to walk all over the town freely and securely,” Asakawa said that he will make it achievable.
Asakawa hit on the idea of ​​a guide robot while moving a suitcase on a trip in front of her. The suitcase fitted by the sensor gave her the idea that people with visual impairments could safely turn around when scanning the surroundings.
IBM Japan is in charge of artificial intelligence for this particular robot.
The partners of this project are:
Alps Alpine Co.’s haptic technology.
Omron Corp.’s image recognition and sensing techniques.
Shimizu Corp.’s position navigation system.
Mitsubishi Motors Corp.’s automotive technologies.
The joint venture set by the 5 companies in the month of December identifies the challenges the commercialization of the device will have to overcome in three years by 2022.
The robot guide first enters airports, then the commercial complexes and later the other indoor facilities and then further enhanced for the purpose of outdoor.

From 1996 to 1999, DeHon co-ran the BRASS group in the Computer Science Department at the University of California at Berkeley.  From 1999 to 2006, he was an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the California Institute of Technology.
DeHon is a Fellow of the ACM (Class of 2018) and a Senior member of the IEEE.  He was recognized as one of Technology Review's 100 young innovators in 2003.  He has 9 papers in the TC-FPGA Hall of Fame for FPGAs and Reconfigurable Computing and 2 best papers from ICFPT.  He serves as an Associate Editor for ACM TRETS and has served as program chair for the ACM FPGA conference and the IEEE FCCM conference. He serves as the Chair of the ACM/SIGDA Technical Committee on FPGAs and Reconfigurable Computing.
Andre DeHon received S.B., S.M., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering and computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1990, 1993, and 1996 respectively.
A plaque, certificate and $2,000 honorarium are awarded for outstanding contributions to undergraduate education through teaching and service. DeHon will receive his award at the Computer Society's annual awards dinner and presentation to be held on 27 May 2020 at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner during the IEEE Computer Society Board of Governors meeting.

How to Crack GATE Exam: Topper Shares 6 Tips to Help You Prepare Better


An ex-IES officer, Swaroop is now a motivational speaker who also runs an academy to train students for various competitive examinations.
Akhand Swaroop Pandit is famous as the man who has cleared several government and competitive examinations, which include – UPSC, GATE, and NET among others.
An ex-IES officer, Swaroop is now a motivational speaker who also runs an academy to train students for various competitive examinations.
In this article, Swaroop, who scored an All India Rank of 6 in the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) lists downs six points that all GATE candidates must follow.

1. Concentrate On the Syllabus

Swaroop says that one of the most important aspects of preparation lies in studying the syllabus. “In the case of GATE examination, no questions are asked out of syllabus or topic. So it is imperative that candidates go through the syllabus with a fine tooth comb.”
Even within the syllabus there are some sub-topics that are of more importance than the others and to gauge which ones they are, candidates must also go through previous year question papers alongside the syllabus.

2. Pick up the Last Ten Years’ Papers

Yet another important point to remember and follow is to go through the question papers of the previous years. Analysing the last ten years question papers will give the candidate a fair idea about what can be asked and what topics are important.
“In terms of when one should start looking at question papers, I would say that the earlier on in your preparation the better,” informs Swaroop.
He further explains that candidates need a minimum of six months of dedicated study time to be able to clear the GATE examination with a good score.

3. Practise Makes Perfect

While this holds true for all competitive examinations, it is especially true for GATE, says Swaroop. “It is important that you attempt the mock papers in the same manner as you would the actual examination. This will not only help in strengthening your understanding but also help you tackle the paper better.”
Citing an example of how practising helps before the exam, he says, “The scientific calculator provided during the examination is one that candidates must get used to. Not knowing its working often leads to candidates wasting precious time in just trying to figure it out. Therefore, if you have practised before and used the calculator, it will help during the D-day.”

4. Make Sure Your Concepts are Clear

In the three hour examination, candidates will have to attempt 65 questions, so unless the concepts are clear, doing justice to the paper will be very difficult. “All the questions are based on concepts so ensure that your concepts are crystal clear. While solving previous year question papers is essential, it will only help in strengthening the concept and one should not solely rely on that alone,” says Swaroop.
He also mentions that candidates must necessarily brush up on all the formulas and practice atleast 4 to 5 questions with each formula.

Word of advise: “Do not mug up the formula, rather spend time understanding how and why they are used in a particular problem,” says Swaroop.

5. Be Mindful while Attempting the Paper

Swaroop cautions candidates about negative marking, especially in the numerical data type questions.
“In the numerical data type questions the candidates are required to enter the answer which has been calculated. For example, if the answer is 36.273 the same must be entered without taking away any decimal point. These are mostly fill in the blank type questions, so the candidates do not have any answer option to chose from.”

Word of advise: Remember to enter the answer with at least three digits after the decimal point. Refrain from rounding off the number in the numerical data type questions.

6. Five-hours of Dedicated Study Time

While it is the quality of study that matters rather than the quantity, one must try and put in a minimum of five hours a day into preparing for the GATE examination. “Even if a candidate is preparing while working or studying in college, taking out five hours a day is absolutely doable. Split the time between morning and evening and you will find that it becomes easy to study.”
It is also important that students make a schedule that works for them. Revision of all topics is very important and candidates must make dedicated time for the same.
