Artificial intelligence will never replace a doctor. However, researchers at the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have taken a big step toward the day when AI can help physicians predict medical events. A new approach developed by PNNL scientists improves the accuracy of patient diagnosis up to 20Continue Reading

Caicedo et al. have determined an evaluation framework to assess the improvements in fluorescent images of nucleus segmentation achieved by machine learning versus classical approaches. The team revealed that of the two deep learning modes interrogated (DeepCell and U-Net), there was improved accuracy of nuclei segmentation when both methods were trained withContinue Reading

Testing specialists Applause have debuted an AI solution promising to help tackle algorithmic bias while providing the scale of data needed for robust training. Applause has built a vast global community of testers for its app testing solution which is trusted by brands including Google, Uber, PayPal, and more. The company isContinue Reading

Singapore has unveiled an ambitious strategy to become a global leader in artificial intelligence by 2030, attempting to carve out a niche for itself in an increasingly politicized technology. Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat outlined five key areas the island nation is targeting for AI applications including in transportContinue Reading

The latest research out of Facebook  sets machine learning models to tasks that, to us, seem rather ordinary — but for a computer are still monstrously difficult. These projects aim to anonymize faces, improvise hand movements and — perhaps hardest of all — give credible fashion advice. The research here was presentedContinue Reading

Radiologists assisted by deep-learning based software were better able to detect malignant lung cancers on chest X-rays, according to research published in the journal Radiology. “The average sensitivity of radiologists was improved by 5.2% when they re-reviewed X-rays with the deep-learning software,” said Byoung Wook Choi, M.D., Ph.D., professor at Yonsei UniversityContinue Reading

An updated analysis from OpenAI shows how dramatically the need for computational resources has increased to reach each new AI breakthrough. In 2018, OpenAI found that the amount of computational power used to train the largest AI models had doubled every 3.4 months since 2012. The San Francisco-based for-profit AIContinue Reading

People are using AI to explore all kinds of ideas—identifying the roots of bad traffic in Los Angeles, improving recycling rates in Singapore, and even experimenting with dance. Getting started with your own machine learning projects might seem intimidating, but Teachable Machine is a web-based tool that makes it fast, easy, and accessible to everyone.  The firstContinue Reading
