With the AI (Artificial Intelligence) Railway Computer, safety and cost-effectiveness in the railway sector can be improved. This is equally interesting for railway operators as it is for rail vehicle manufacturers. The AI Railway Computer is used wherever AI and edge computing intersect. Typical applications include semi-autonomous driving, predictive maintenance and condition-based monitoring. Syslogic is currently supplying the first product-quality samples for test purposes and will soon start series production.Syslogic uses a Jetson TX2 module by Nvidia as the basis for the AI Rail Computer. The core of the Jetson TX2 is the ARM SoC Tegra X2 named Parker. It combines two computation modules with Nvidia’s proprietary Denver 2 microarchitecture with four Cortex-A57 cores and a Pascal GPU. The latter has 256 shader cores. This enables the AI Embedded System to use artificial intelligence in real time.The innovative processor technology combines Syslogic with the tried and tested features of existing railway computers. For example, the AI Railway Computer is passively cooled, features a robust housing and screw-on M12 connectors. Thus, the AI Railway Computer complies with railway standard EN50155, class OT4, as well as fire protection standard EN45545. Furthermore, the railway computer has a galvanically isolated nominal power supply of 24/36 and optionally up to 110VDC.Besides performance and robustness, Syslogic is also focusing on easy commissioning of the AI Embedded systems. The devices come with pre-installed Ubuntu board support package (Linux for Tegra). Additionally, a complete developer environment (JetPack) including CUDA libraries is installed. The Nvidia software development kit and a deep learning framework are available for a quick introduction to the AI world.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Boards & Modules Continue Reading Previous PEAK and EmSA collaborate on CANopen and J1939 solutionsNext Würth: precise constant current generation with DC/DC converters
About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Chelsea ace Hazard: I’ve changed the approach to my careerby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea ace Eden Hazard admits he’s taken better care of his body in recent years.Hazard has been with Chelsea since 2012.”Football is my job, but I enjoyed it 20 years ago, I enjoyed it 10 years ago and I enjoy it now. In that respect I haven’t changed a lot.”I prepare for games exactly the same as I did when I was younger. But now the difference is that I am getting older and I need to take more care of my body. I work a bit in the gym with the physio. Five years ago I just enjoyed training and then I went home.”Now I take my time. Recovery sessions are important for me now. That’s the big change, but after that I’m the same guy, with the same happiness on the pitch.”
Earlier this week, five-star outside linebacker recruit Lyndell Wilson, who 247 Sports has ranked as the top player in the state of Alabama, announced his top seven teams on Twitter. USC was among the programs, and it looks like the Trojans are trying to take full advantage.Saturday, Lyndell tweeted out a photo of a dozen business cards he claims he was given by USC. The cards read that Wilson is the President and CEO of his own company, Lyndell Mack Wilson Inc. It’s a recruiting tactic we haven’t yet seen before.Wilson deleted the tweet shortly after posting it. We’re not sure if that means it’s potentially some sort of NCAA violation, or if he just didn’t want his address circulating the Internet. Ironically, under NCAA rules, Wilson can’t start a company and profit off of his likeness until he leaves school. Still, this is pretty cool.
Story Highlights Motorists and pedestrians in Montego Bay, St. James, say the presence of members of the Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch (PSTEB) has brought greater security and public order to the streets of the Second City. Motorists and pedestrians in Montego Bay, St. James, say the presence of members of the Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch (PSTEB) has brought greater security and public order to the streets of the Second City.In a vox pop conducted by JIS News on October 3, members of the public welcomed the PSTEB police officers, noting that they have made a significant difference in the flow of traffic, especially at peak hours.However, some citizens argue that the policemen and policewomen, decked in their neon yellow vests, need to place greater focus along some roadways, including Megabyte Drive in the vicinity of Vista Print; Sam Sharpe Square and along Orange Street.Following are the responses of persons who spoke with JIS News:(1) “This is what Montego Bay needed a long time. I see them cover almost everywhere already. I saw them on St. James Street; I saw them on Howard Cooke Boulevard; I saw them out at Gloucester Avenue and Barnett Street. I think they are doing a wonderful job.”JUTA Tour Operator, Sydney Bennett(2) “The initiative has been a really brilliant one. It has made a difference in terms of additional security, in terms of visibility and in terms of traffic control, which I believe we were desperately in need of. The whole initiative has been really impactful.”Motorist, Hillary Clarke (3) “I have seen them one time along Union Street. When I am coming from Paradise on Albion Road to come around Cornwall College and straight down to Orange Street, we would like to see more police around that side, even two of the new ones. I am telling you, if we see the uniformed personnel around there, then people will abide by the rules. As long as there is no police around there, there will be chaos.”Clive Blackwood, Taxi operator who plies the Paradise, Norwood to Montego Bay route(4) “The traffic in the peak hours is a little bit difficult, so when you have the police around it’s a little easier. Right at Vista Print, I was thinking about a stoplight there, but this morning (Wednesday, October 3), I saw one of the officers there and it was little easier,” he said.Taxi Operator, Derrick James, who plies the Irwin Meadows to Montego Bay route(5) “Mi feel good ‘bout dem. Since dem deh ‘round, the traffic get fi more clear, and because more time you used to stop in the traffic fi long time, when dem come ‘round, the traffic always clear up.”Pedestrian and vendor who gives his name as Roger (6) “It’s pretty good… because you can see the police officers from far. They are working well. I love it,” he said.Jermaine, Pedestrian
Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement Login/Register With: Dozens of prominent members of the Canadian literary community have signed an open letter calling for due process for former University of British Columbia creative writing program chair Steven Galloway.Galloway was fired in June after an investigation into what the university called “serious allegations.”Signatories to the letter include Margaret Atwood, Michael Ondaatje and Madeleine Thien, as well as publishers and other literary figures. Facebook “The university’s conduct in this matter is of great concern,” the letter reads. “Justice … requires due process and fair treatment for all, which the university appears to have denied professor Galloway.”The letter asks UBC to conduct an independent investigation into its handling of the case, saying it needs to make a clear public statement about what happened and why.‘Cloud of suspicion’Galloway — a bestselling author and Giller Prize nominee — was initially suspended with pay in November 2015 while the university investigated the allegations against him. At the time, the university gave no public details about the allegations, other than that they were “serious.” LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Twitter
A homegrown WAR rate of 43 percent is well below the long-term average of 63 percent for world champs, but that number is propped up by teams that won their titles before MLB’s modern era of free agency and mass player movement. Since free agency began in 1976, the average champion got about 50 percent of its WAR from homegrown players. In comparison with the highly imported nature of the 2004 Red Sox roster, the 2016 Cubs had a pretty normal mix of developed and acquired talent.Finally, the quality of the 2016 Cubs’ position players set them apart from the 2004 Red Sox, particularly on defense. Both teams received immense contributions from their respective pitching staffs; Boston ranked 14th among champions in pitching WAR,4Per 162 games. while Chicago ranked 27th. But the Cubs’ lineup also generated the 16th-most WAR by a championship team, while the Red Sox got only the 77th-most WAR of any champion from its lineup. Some of Chicago’s impressive young position-player talent flowed from a promise Epstein made at his introductory news conference in 2011. There, Epstein declared his intention to build “a foundation of sustained success” rooted in player development, echoing a similar sentiment from early in his tenure with Boston. “We’re going to turn the Red Sox into a scouting and player development machine,” he said in 2002. Although the returns didn’t come in quickly enough for the veteran Red Sox of 2004 — only 12 percent of the team’s WAR was generated by players who began their careers in Boston, the third-lowest rate for a champ ever — Epstein’s machine did eventually produce younger, more homegrown champions in 2007 and 2013. Epstein left Boston in 2011, but his fingerprints were all over the roster that brought Boston its ’13 title. And in 2016, 43 percent of the Cubs’ WAR was generated by players who made their MLB debuts in a Chicago uniform, many of whom Epstein drafted himself. When Theo Epstein left the Boston Red Sox to become president of baseball operations for the Chicago Cubs in the fall of 2011, he told reporters he was “ready for the next big challenge.” And what a challenge it was: The Cubs were coming off of a 71-win season, without much help on the way. Famously, the team’s last pennant had come 66 years prior, and it hadn’t won a World Series in 103 years.Epstein, of course, was well acquainted with the anguish of a supposedly cursed fan base. In 2004, as general manager of the Red Sox, he’d been the architect of Boston’s first world championship in 86 years. The parallels to Chicago’s plight were obvious. But the prospect of a second Epstein miracle seemed too much to realistically expect. The 2004 Red Sox had needed one of the greatest comebacks in professional sports history to end the team’s drought — surely such lightning couldn’t strike twice, could it?It could, and did. On Wednesday night, Epstein’s Cubs did what previously had been reserved for the realm of fantasy, bringing a World Series to Chicago’s North Side for the first time in 108 years. So, having pulled off the feat twice now, how do Epstein’s two curse-breaking teams stack up?First things first: The 2016 Cubs were probably better than the 2004 Red Sox. Although the Cubs had a penchant for doing things the hard way during the playoffs, they also had one of the best couple-dozen regular seasons in MLB history. By wins above replacement (WAR),1All mentions of WAR in this story will refer to an average between the competing versions offered at Baseball-Reference.com and FanGraphs.com. Chicago was the seventh-best World Series winner ever; Boston ranked 41st out of the 112 all-time winners. The Cubs also just edged out the Sox, according to FiveThirtyEight’s Elo team ratings,2Using the more complete version that’s adjusted for the quality of a team’s starting rotation. ranking 29th among World Series winners versus Boston’s 32nd-place finish. (To be fair, by another measure of Elo the 2016 Cubs ranked as the 70th-best team ever, slightly behind the 64th-ranked 2004 Red Sox.)But more interesting than straight rankings is the contrast in how each team was built. The 2004 Red Sox were a veteran team, the fourth-oldest World Series winner in history.3Using an average for the team’s regular-season roster that weights according to how much each player contributed to the team’s overall record as determined by WAR. They had old hitters — 22nd-oldest among historical champs, as weighted by each player’s regular-season plate appearances — and positively ancient pitchers — No. 1 all time, in fact, weighted by regular-season innings pitched. Epstein was handed a team full of vets when he took over as Boston’s general manager after the 2002 season, and he doubled down further by adding the likes of Curt Schilling (age 37 in 2004), Keith Foulke (31), Kevin Millar (32), Bill Mueller (33) and Mike Timlin (38) via trades or free agency.Epstein’s Cubs, on the other hand, were pretty average as far as the age of championship rosters go: They ranked 52nd-youngest out of the World Series’s 112 winners. But they also had an interesting split between the average ages of their lineup and their pitching staff. In keeping with the tradition of the 2004 Red Sox, Epstein once again assembled a pretty old group of pitchers in Chicago — eighth-oldest among all champs (though a full year-and-a-half younger than Boston’s grizzled staff in ‘04). Chicago’s position players, however, ranked 11th-youngest in championship history. The mix between fresh-faced kids such as Kris Bryant (age 24) and Anthony Rizzo (26) on the hitting side and aging pitchers such as Jon Lester (32), Jake Arrieta (30) and John Lackey (37) built the foundation for one of the most interestingly constructed rosters of any champion. Much of that difference came down to defense: Those Red Sox ranked sixth-to-last in baseball by defensive runs saved in 2004, instead typifying the classic mashing-over-fielding profile carried by many of that era’s sabermetric darlings. The defensive-minded Cubs, by contrast, illustrated the evolution of today’s data-driven teams, ranking first in baseball (by a wide margin) in DRS this season.Those kinds of distinctions particularly help put Epstein’s accomplishment in perspective. As one of the first wave of young, Ivy League-educated, statistically savvy general managers, Epstein was able to reverse Boston’s curse by building what was effectively the prototypical early-sabermetric ballclub: patience and power at the plate, and power pitching on the mound. If the ball was ever put in play, you took your chances with the most adequate defense you could cobble together while still propping up your on-base percentage and slugging average. The 2004 Red Sox were one of the first teams to win with that formula, but Epstein’s 2016 champion Cubs show how much the winning equation has changed as sabermetrics has matured. Now, the value of dynamic free-swingers like Javier Baez has been rediscovered, as has the importance of defense. The secret to breaking Chicago’s curse was very different than the one that broke Boston’s hex 12 years earlier.And if Epstein ever molds another champion elsewhere, it’s a good bet that team will look different than either the ‘04 Sox or the ‘16 Cubs. Another good bet: It will probably set another prototype for subsequent teams to follow, whether they’re trying to end a championship drought or not.
