Andrew Ng’s Landing.ai wants to move synthetic comprehension to a production industry, starting with Foxconn


AI colonize Andrew Ng is substantially best famous for his work on a Google Brain plan and for heading Baidu’s AI organisation (and his appurtenance training march on Coursera). After withdrawal Baidu progressing this year, it wasn’t utterly transparent what accurately Ng was adult to (except for training some-more classes), yet currently he announced a launch of Landing.ai, a new startup that focuses on bringing synthetic comprehension to a production industry. Landing.ai’s initial vital partner is Foxconn and Ng says he’s been operative with them given July.

The thought here is to assistance move AI to industries outward a normal IT world. In his announcement, Ng argues that AI and appurtenance training have already remade how many of a large internet companies do business. Other industries, however, are lagging behind. “It is now time to build not only an AI-powered IT industry, yet an AI-powered society,” Ng writes. “One in that a earthy needs, health care, transportation, food, and camp are some-more permitted by AI, and where each chairman is liberated from repeated mental drudgery. For a whole universe to knowledge advantages of AI, it contingency emanate many industries, not only a IT industry.”

So what will Landing.ai indeed do? Ng writes that a association is operative on a series of “AI mutation programs” that embody introducing new technologies to companies, training employees and more.

The production attention is a initial concentration of a company, yet Ng is clearly looking to enhance over this initial vertical.

As for a Foxconn partnership, Ng says that he’s been operative with them to rise “AI technologies, talent and systems that build on a core competencies of a dual companies.”

All of this sounds a bit vague, and Landing.ai really strikes me as some-more of a consulting organisation than a record play. It’s misleading if a association will rise any of a possess AI technologies or platforms, yet given today’s launch announcement, a concentration here seems to be some-more on bringing existent technologies to enterprises like Foxconn.
