Adore smart scale claims to use A.I. to give you a better sense of your body

Adore is a smart scale powered by Artifical Intelligence
Your body is much more than your weight, so your scale should provide a lot more information than pounds. Luckily, the team behind the Adore agrees, and has created an artificially intelligent scale that promises to provide a holistic view of how your body is performing at any given time. With the Adore Sense scale, you’ll be able to monitor nine vital signs, including visceral fat, muscle mass, BMI, bone density, and body water.

Together with the companion Dynosense app, the Adore will help you optimize your progress toward your own unique ideals, giving tips on when you ought to take in more liquid, what your optimal workout times may be, and more. The Adore itself features a custom-developed algorithm that conducts real-time assessments of data inputs, and thanks to its cloud integrations, can send this information straight to your smartphone so you can take action.

Users can input their goals directly into the Dynosense app, and the AI component of the scale promises to combine these goals and users’ unique profiles into a series of easy-to-follow steps, including training plans, diet recommendations, and more. And thanks to the broader health community connected through the app, you’ll always have access to friends, experts, and a support system. The scale is also quite easy on the eyes, featuring slick edges, a bright screen display, and a slim, innocuous design.

“With Adore, we offer comprehensive analysis of the body composition,” said Saeed Azimi, CEO of Adore. “With this product we offer education and understanding what it means to have improved body balance and how to achieve it.”

Whether you’re a runner, a yogi, or simply a fitness enthusiast interested in acquiring a more complete sense of your health metrics, the Adore can be a useful addition to your overall health kit. From helping you determine how much water you ought to drink in a day to how many calories you burn while sleeping, the Adore claims to help you figure it all out. The smart scale has already raised nearly $85,000 from almost 900 backers, and you can see what all the fuss is yourself by pre-ordering an Adore scale from Kickstarter for $79. Shipment is estimated for December 2017.

How the USPS uses Nvidia GPUs and A.I. to track missing mail
A United States Postal Service USPS truck driving on a tree-lined street.

The United States Postal Service, or USPS, is relying on artificial intelligence-powered by Nvidia's EGX systems to track more than 100 million pieces of mail a day that goes through its network. The world's busiest postal service system is relying on GPU-accelerated A.I. systems to help solve the challenges of locating lost or missing packages and mail. Essentially, the USPS turned to A.I. to help it locate a "needle in a haystack."

To solve that challenge, USPS engineers created an edge A.I. system of servers that can scan and locate mail. They created algorithms for the system that were trained on 13 Nvidia DGX systems located at USPS data centers. Nvidia's DGX A100 systems, for reference, pack in five petaflops of compute power and cost just under $200,000. It is based on the same Ampere architecture found on Nvidia's consumer GeForce RTX 3000 series GPUs.

Clever new A.I. system promises to train your dog while you’re away from home

One of the few good things about lockdown and working from home has been having more time to spend with pets. But when the world returns to normal, people are going to go back to the office, and in some cases that means leaving dogs at home for a large part of the day, hopefully with someone coming into your house to let them out at the midday point.

What if it was possible for an A.I. device, like a next-generation Amazon Echo, to give your pooch a dog-training class while you were away? That’s the basis for a project carried out by researchers at Colorado State University. Initially spotted by Chris Stokel-Walker, author of YouTubers:How YouTube Shook Up TV and Created a New Generation of Stars, and reported by New Scientist, the work involves a prototype device that’s able to give out canine commands, check to see if they’re being obeyed, and then provide a treat as a reward when they are.
