SA ‘will solve mining challenges’

first_img18 September 2013 The South African government is determined to resolve the challenges currently facing the country’s mining sector, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe told a high-profile gathering of UK government and industry representatives in London on Tuesday. South Africa’s mining industry has been hit by a spate of industrial action since last year, leading to a drop in production. More recently, slowing growth in China, the global decline in commodity prices as well as domestic work stoppages have resulted in lower growth for the country’s mines. “The government of South Africa is determined to do everything possible to strengthen this sector in these difficult global economic conditions,” Motlanthe told the gathering at Chatham House. Motlanthe, accompanied by Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan, Mineral Resources Minister Susan Shabangu and Deputy International Relations Minister Ebrahim Ebrahim, is on an official visit to the UK promote trade and investment, particularly in South Africa’s mining sector. He told Tuesday’s gathering that South Africa’s “deeply entrenched” history of dialogue to resolve social conflict was well-known. “Social dialogue has over the years enabled us to mobilise a broad section of society under the rubric of conflict resolution and reconciliation, invariably impelled by the fact of our indissoluble future as a nation. “We have addressed many other intractable conflicts in our country through this time-tested mechanism,” Motlanthe said. “Not only that, social dialogue has found constitutional expression in a number of institutions that have stood us in good stead since the birth of democracy.” South Africa’s dialogue platforms included the National Economic Development and Labour Council (Nedlac) and the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA). In July, the government, mining companies and organised labour (with exception of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union) signed a framework agreement that provides the basis for cooperation to stabilise the mining sector and set it on a sustainable footing. The parties to the agreement committed themselves to improving processes and procedures as well as implementing new measures to bring about lasting change, while working together to sustain and improve the sector. The parties also made a firm commitment to work together to restore peace and stability on the country’s mines. Motlanthe said this was crucial for creating an environment conducive to growth and development. Workers and managers needed to be able to go to work without fear of harm, Motlanthe said. Workers also had to be free to exercise their constitutional right to join the trade union of their choice, to declare disputes, to strike and to engage in peaceful protest. Both workers and employers had to ensure that all matters pertaining to labour relations, including union recognition, verification of membership and wage negotiations, were conducted in line with the Labour Relations Act, which provided the primary foundation for labour relations in South Africa. Motlanthe said the government would act decisively to enforce the rule of law, maintain peace during strikes and other protests relating to labour disputes, and ensure the protection of life, property and the advancement of the rights of all. The government would further ensure that the country’s law enforcement agencies acted in a manner that was fair, impartial and objective. There was an emergent appreciation, he said, that the stakeholders in the mining sector had to build relationships based on trust and respect and avoid actions that adversely affected this relationship.

Machine Vision on the Horizon: Vitamin D Launches Object Recognition for Video

first_imgRelated Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting jolie odell Tags:#start#startups The company is based in Menlo Park and has received small amounts of angel funding from investors that include HTC CEO Peter Chou.In 2005, Jeff Hawkins, Palm Computing founder and brain researcher, founded a company called Numenta. Numenta’s HTM technology is focused on a new generation of artificial intelligence, or more specifically, enabling computers to recognize, learn, and understand patterns in massive amounts of data. Their HTM platform, the foundation for Vitamin D’s app, is also applicable to a broad class of other problems, from machine vision to fraud detection to semantic analysis of text. HTM is based on a theory of neocortex first described in Hawkins’ book On Intelligence and was subsequently turned into a mathematical form by Numenta co-founder Dileep George.Other HTM-based applications solve such problems as recognizing objects in images, recognizing behaviors in videos, identifying the gender of a speaker, predicting traffic patterns, doing optical character recognition on messy text, evaluating medical images, and predicting click through patterns on the web. Check out some sample applications and their demo packages, developed in conjunction with Vitamin D.The demos show small video clips being processed in real time for machine recognition of humans in video, even in low light, in crowded environments, and in environments with multiple moving objects. It is important to note that HTM systems are trained rather than programmed in the traditional sense. According to the Numenta website, “Sensory data is applied to the bottom of the hierarchy of an HTM system, and the HTM automatically discovers the underlying patterns in the sensory input. HTMs learn what objects or movements are in the world and how to recognize them, just as a child learns to identify new objects.”Vitamin D CEO Celeste Baranski said, “We’ve witnessed the incredible growth and importance of searching text-based content. But we’re still in the dark ages when it comes to finding things in video… There is a clear need for a better way to detect, recognize, and filter objects. Vitamin D Video is the first of many smart applications that will unlock the value inside video across a broad range of consumer and business applications.”center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A 2-year-old Silicon Valley startup is working on technology to solve the problems of machine vision. Their new product, launching today at DEMO, will lay the foundation for true video search, wherein software will learn, recognize, and understand patterns and take subsequent actions rather than relying on machine-readable tags and metadata.In its current form, Vitamin D Video is targeted for video analytics and monitoring, but the underlying technology, called Hierarchical Temporal Memory, or HTM, is modeled on the human neocortex and is the stuff of AI-yet-to-come.Vitamin D, founded by some of the key UX, engineering, and marketing folks behind the original Palm and Treo products, tells us that their video application can distinguish between people and other objects in live or archived video in ways that no other system can, not even the highest enterprise-grade analytics and monitoring technologies.It condenses enormous amounts of video into distinct and valuable events very quickly. It also has zero configuration and a simple rules wizard that sets up notifications for specific events.Ultimately, Vitamin D Video could eliminate the need for humans to stuff text-based data around their videos. “Vitamin D envisions a near future in which all the world’s video can be searched, monitored, understood, and reacted to in more automated ways,” company rep Allen Bush wrote to us in an email. “If computers could understand video content without having to be told by humans, many disruptive applications would surface.”This application will be available to any user with a simple webcam or IP camera and will be free throughout the beta testing period. Vitamin D sees the app as particularly useful for video surveillance and security as well as mobile capture and lookup, contextual advertising, entertainment, and general visual search. Interested parties can check out their demo.last_img read more
