Speech: Biomimetic Human Simulation With Neural Deep Learning of Active Musculoskeletal and Visuomotor Control

Abstract: Realistic computer simulation of the human body — not just the bones, joints, and muscles, but also the sensory organs and, of course, the brain— is a grand challenge in robotic science and the quest for artificial intelligence/life. In this context, I will present our advances in biomimetic human simulation and sensorimotor control. Our framework features an unprecedentedly detailed biomechanical human musculoskeletal model actuated by more than 800 muscles, with functional eyes whose retinas have numerous nonuniformly-distributed photoreceptors. This bio-inspired perceptual apparatus feeds the sensorimotor center of our virtual human's brain, which currently incorporates two dozen (deep) neural networks, organized as a neurovisual sensory subsystem that drives a neuromuscular motor subsystem. Synthesizing its own motor and visual training data, our autonomous virtual human learns efficient and robust active visuomotor control of its eyes, head, torso, and limbs to perform a variety of nontrivial sensorimotor tasks never previously achieved in realistic biomechanical human simulations or anthropomimetic robotics.

Speech: Internet of things Full Scene Smart Community Comprehensive Services and Demonstration Applications  

Abstract: "The community is the grass-roots foundation. Only with a solid foundation can the national building be stable.""Strengthen the construction of community service capacity, better provide accurate and refined services for the masses, create a community governance pattern of co-construction, co-governance and sharing, and effectively enhance the residents' sense of gain, happiness and security“____Xi JinPing.
The smart community has a large number of smart devices and terminals, and generates massive data and diversified service scenarios, providing a platform for the integrated development of various elements of the "new infrastructure". The smart community integrates the big data of underwear, food, housing and transportation in the shared area, optimizes the resource allocation of "new infrastructure", improves the government's ability to make quick decisions and personalized services, and provides a comprehensive carrier for the development of "new infrastructure". For the whole scenario of community public safety, livelihood services and comprehensive governance, the technical system based on Risk Intelligent Research and judgment, intelligent enjoyment of livelihood services, and intelligent and accurate governance urgently needs to be improved. The integrated community comprehensive service platform based on 5G, edge computing, artificial intelligence, blockchain and other new technologies has not been formed. The scientific, refined, and intelligent security, service, and governance capabilities of communities urgently need to be improved. Based on new generation technologies such as "cloud, big, physical, mobile, intelligent, and chain", we aim to innovate the mechanism, technology, and culture of smart communities in the new era, facing the full range of community public safety, livelihood services, and comprehensive governance scenarios, and create a model of safe, intelligent, and reassuring communities.
