5G Network, Big Data, and AI keys to survive the economic crisis

Artificial Intelligence, Data

South Korea will make AI, Big data, and 5G network the centerpieces of what it claims to be a SOLUTION to create jobs and increase growth after the disappearance of the new coronavirus pandemic.

The government of South Korea has a big plan to work on a large-scale project to promote a digital economy, seeking synergy with private sector investment and improving industrial productivity and overall competitiveness.

They will actually work on 10 objectives to accelerate the transformation of a digital economy, which includes the construction of Big Data systems, 5G Network, AI to remote businesses, and improve security on the long term.

The project comes as the South Korean trade-dependent economy prepares to fall even further due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Even though the country has so far managed to contain its own outbreak, March was its worst month for job losses since the global financial crisis, with part-time workers and young people being the hardest hit.

The fourth-largest economy in Asia lost 476,000 jobs in April, the worst monthly decline since 1999 when the country emerged from the Asian financial crisis, according to official data.

Some temporary workers have also lost their jobs, even though South Korea has maintained most of its open economy.

As part of its plan to survive the economic crises, South Korea plans to create funds to support the development of AI, build sites for testing robots, and help companies launch new services that use Big data.

They will also support the construction of a national 5G network. The main goal here is to improve South Korea’s economic growth potential and create sustainable jobs for the future generations.

Big Data & la guerre contre le Covid-19

Artificial Intelligence, Business, Data

La diffusion rapide et mondiale de COVID-19 a mis en avant les outils avancés d’analyse des big data, des entités de tous les secteurs de l’industrie et des soins de santé qui cherchent à surveiller l’impact de ce virus.

Big Data et COVID-19 ?

En effet, depuis que le COVID-19 a frappé les USA, les chercheurs ont travaillé d’arrache-pied pour découvrir la nature du virus, pourquoi il affecte plus que d’autres, quelles mesures peuvent aider à réduire la propagation et où la maladie ira probablement ensuite.
Entre reconnaître les signes et les symptômes, suivre le virus et surveiller la disponibilité des ressources hospitalières, les chercheurs sont confrontés à d’énormes quantités d’informations. Ces dernières sont très extensibles et volumineuses pour que les humains puissent les comprendre et les analyser par eux-mêmes.

C’est une situation qui nécessite certainement des technologies data Analytics avancées.

L’intelligence artificielle peut éliminer de nombreuses fausses pistes et va permettre d’identifier des cibles potentielles.  Cela va accélérer par suite la découverte éventuelle du vaccin contre le COVID-19.
Le principal avantage du big data est le fait de créer une opportunité pour une évaluation plus rapide et presque en temps réel de la prise de décision. Cela sauvera des vies et permettra d’identifier plus rapidement des thérapies efficaces
Les data de la pandémie de COVID-19 feront probablement partie de l’ensemble de preuves qui seront présentées aux autorités réglementaires une fois qu’une ou plusieurs thérapies identifiées semblent efficaces.
Cela créera potentiellement un précédent sur la façon dont les données vont être utilisées dans des situations similaires à l’avenir.

COVID-19 Une estimation alarmante pour la Tunisie !

Artificial Intelligence, Business, Data, Uncategorized, , , , , , , ,

La Tunisie et lecture en chiffre

En se basant sur les autres pays affectés, le nombre total de cas infectés en Tunisie est de 20 infectés par la COVID-19  (les cas officiels) mais il est impératif de connaître le nombre des cas réels. Il faut souligner ici que le virus se propageait sans être détecté depuis des semaines.

À première vue, en utilisant les données collectées et les ratios des données fiables nous avons créé un modèle qui estime le nombre de cas dans les semaines prochaines :

  • Vrais cas probables aujourd’hui 44
  • Vrais cas probables dans une semaine 476

 Dans ces conditions, il faut signaler que nous allons arriver à 2000 cas probables dans deux semaines et plus de 35000 cas dans un mois. Il semblerait que c’est une estimation alarmante pour la Tunisie !

Par ailleurs, le but de cet article sur COVID-19 est de regrouper les recherches existantes, de rassembler les données pertinentes et de permettre aux lecteurs de comprendre les données publiées et les premières recherches sur l’épidémie de coronavirus.

Les décès et les infections dus au coronavirus dans le monde ont dépassé ceux de l’intérieur de la Chine pour la première fois depuis le début de l’épidémie.

Maintenant la question qui se pose est peut-on faire des estimations de cas de Coronavirus sur le court et moyen terme ? Et ce en se basant sur des données antérieurs ?

Les infections dans le monde ont atteint plus de 87 000, selon le traqueur de l’université Johns Hopkins, alors que les cas en Chine se sont élevés à 80 860, selon la Commission nationale chinoise de la santé.

Mais à bien considérer les choses, le centre d’infection le plus important en dehors de la Chine est en Italie, où il y a près de 25 000 infections confirmées et plus de 1 800 décès.

 

Total-cases-total-deaths

 

 

Le début d’épidémie

Le 31 décembre 2019, le bureau chinois de l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) a entendu les premiers rapports d’un virus inconnu derrière un certain nombre de cas de pneumonie à Wuhan, une ville de l’est de la Chine comptant plus de 11 millions d’habitants. COVID-19 a touché ensuite environ 80 969 personnes en Chine continentale, tuant 3 162 personnes.

La province du Hubei a été la plus durement touchée par COVID-19, la plupart des infections se produisant à Wuhan même.

Mais il faut souligner que la Corée du Sud est probablement une aberration statistique. La pile croissante de données a permis aux autorités de tester rapidement la maladie et de suivre sa propagation rapide Lors d’épidémies précédentes, des retards dans la collecte et le suivi ont entrainé des temps de réponse lents.

Timline-of-events-in-Hubei

La suite alarmante

En dehors de la Chine, l’Italie a enregistré le plus grand nombre de cas, avec 10 149 personnes infectées confirmées, principalement dans le nord du pays. Le pays tout entier est désormais verrouillé après la prolongation de la quarantaine couvrant le nord du pays le 9 mars. Puis le Royaume unis avec un nombre total de cas qui s’élevait à 1 372, contre 1 140 à la même heure samedi. Ensuite la France qui a compté dimanche soir 127 morts et 5 423 cas de contamination depuis le début de l’épidémie.

 

 

 

Étude de données et interprétations

Le nombre total des cas infectés détectés en Italie aujourd’hui est de 21,157 en une courbe strictement croissante et alarmante. D’où on estime si le nombre de nouveaux infectés détectés hier était de 2,500,  ils seront aujourd’hui de 3,497 nouveaux cas. On souligne ici sur le nombre des personnes  détectées contre celles infectés sinon le nombre devrait être beaucoup plus élargi.

 

coronavirus-total-cases

 

En effet, durant les deux semaines de la détection des premiers cas, l’Italie n’a pas enregistré des victimes. Mais au cours de 14 à jours, on a commencé à enregistrer des morts pour que ça atteigne aujourd’hui les 1,441 (175 nouveaux morts aujourd’hui et 250 hier).

Ce qui fait que le taux de mortalité du Corona en Italie aujourd’hui est de 6.8 % augmentant chaque jour de 0.5 point et dépassant la moyenne mondiale qui se situe aujourd’hui à 3.8 %.

 

coronavirus-totalDeaths-

 

On parle de deux taux de mortalité, le taux de mortalité général (nombre de morts divisé par le nombre d’infectés) et qui est aujourd’hui de 6.8 % en Italie et puis le taux de mortalité de cas fermés (récupération ou mort) et là le taux de mortalité atteint les 43 %.

En outre, on estime une augmentation d’infectés de 12 à 16 % quotidiennement et une augmentation de morts de 10 à 15 %.

L’écart entre le nombre de nouveaux infectés et récupérés augmente en exponentiel ce qui a généré le chaos qu’on distingue aujourd’hui.

Pour conclure, l’Espagne et la France suivent le même scénario que l’Italie malheureusement ou encore pire !

 

 

En résumé, il est temps pour un wake up all  et arrêter de banaliser le COVID-19 ! Suivez les instructions gouvernementales car les chiffres sont vraiment alarmants !

The « Computer Vision » as a 2020 new technology

Artificial Intelligence, Business, Data, Mobile Development

In computer terms, “vision” involves systems capable of identifying elements, places, objects or people from visual images and all of those are gathered by a camera or a sensor.

Indeed, that’s the technology that enables your smartphone’s camera to recognize which part of the image is capturing and to feed technology such as Google Image Search.

computer_vision_2020

In 2020, we will witness tools and technologies with computer vision deployed for an increasing number of uses.

This is fundamental to the way autonomous cars can “see” and manage the danger.

The production team will use “computer vision” cameras to detect defective products or equipment failures, and the security cameras will be able to alert if there’s something out of the ordinary, without requiring 24 hours surveillance, 7 days on 7.

Computer vision allows facial recognition

 

facial-recognition-comptuer-visionComputer vision also allows facial recognition, which we will hear a lot about in 2020.

We have already seen how technology can control access to our smartphones in the case of Apple’s Face ID and how the airport from Dubai uses it to offer the customer a more comforting trip.

However, as the use cases increase in 2020, there will also be more and more debate over limiting the use of this technology due to the potential privacy risks and the possibility of ‘state control similar to the ‘Big Brother ‘phenomena.

Artificial Intelligence, Business, , , ,

Invest in the Power of Predictive Analytics for better Water Management. Indeed, asking water utility companies to cut leakages remains always a delicate business case. Managing hydraulic resources still provokes much debate. In a world threatened by a severe water crisis, data analytics is playing a crucial role to monitor the industry.  

1/ How Can Data Mining Help Us to Save Water ?

Since 2012, Steps, in cooperation with international business partners, has started to elaborate predictive data analysis for governments to spot water leakages and detect anomalies in the distribution process. These business solutions are a great asset to modernize water utilities all over the world. These operations contributed to the reduction of costs and time.

The evolution of data science brought about tremendous change in the way governments and private stakeholders tackle the distribution of water. For instance, digging holes and operating in extended construction sites is costly and time-consuing. So, water utility providers turned to the predictive power of data. Steps analysts invested their expertise to collect data and work on it to elaborate predictive business reports. These documents are the key to control water management from its first phase to reaching consumers.

2/ How Do We Operate through our Data Science Strategy ?

Our strategy adopted an early leak identification solution that encompasses a variety of tasks. Thanks to this method, we worked on cutting opertaing costs and meeting water leakages in real-time. Thanks to this new data intelligence solution, we are providing better services for our clients. By this innovatory technique, we are able to prevent the customers’ outbursts over frequent water shortages and misuse of natural resources. Our project, orchestrated with the consistent assistance of our business partners, is to increase analytical capability using existing data to get early event warnings and see what we have been unable to visualise before.

3/ What Are our Steps to Take Care of your Data?

The early identification solution ensues the collection of unstructured data, the cleansing and the scientific analysis of it. These digital alerts are based around customized parameters for a quick detection of problems. Therefore , the automated monitoring of flows and pressures in the clean water distribution system allow the system to check for anomalies. Such as a sudden drop in pressure. Indeed, an increase in flow at a meter, or chain of meters, may indicate a leak will bring such events to the attention of the specialized staff. 

Applying data-based prediction is a great opportunity to preserve precious natural resources as water.

We work endlessly to use science and IT solutions to sustain development and create a better world for future generations. Our engineers are harnessing the power of predictive analytics to manage uncessary water losses and provide a better quality of services. we developed algorithms to predict unusal flow of water and potential leaks.

The Water Industry Embraces Data for More Efficiency

Artificial Intelligence, Business, Data, Uncategorized, , , ,

The water industry adapts data for more efficiency. In fact, the world is witnessing another crisis: water scarcity. Indeed, several conflicts over water resources are marking new headlines. This situation increases the worries of scientists. Even authors such as Steven Solomon expressed their fear in bold words. They incite the stakeholders of the water industry to take serious measures to tackle this threat.

1/ What Do Reports Say ?

Following the 2016 report from the UNEP-hosted International Resource Panel, the demand on water supply will significantly grow by 40 % in 2030. Therfore, these alarming figures will even put more pressure on water utility providers. They should invest double efforts to provide the precious water. We talk about doubling our water consumption in the last century. The increasing demand on water resources is only getting issues more complicated. Thus, the water industry should change and evolve to meet the expectations of the increasing number of customers. The organizations that manage water supplies around the world are facing critical issues.  The water scarcity is chief among them.

2/ How Can Data Analytics Save Water ?

Shortage in water supply will negatively affect food chains. It can even bring about lingering economic crises. Consequently, it will hinder economic growth. To put an end to this critical problem, water utilities companies are increasingly resorting to digital platforms and data analytics. Using data mining techniques, they can detect water leakages and improve the use of water resources. According to the latest statistics issued by the World Bank, the world loses about 25-35% of water due to leaks and bursts. The annual value of this non-revenue water (water produced and lost by utilities) is equal to $14 billion. But how can data science alter this situation?

3/ How Do We Operate ?

With the assistance of our business partners, STEPS orchestrated IT solutions to use and interpret data. Using data intelligence services, we manage the extraction and distribution of water resources to customers.
