Machine learning used to predict earthquakes in a lab setting

A group of researchers from the UK and the US have used machine learning techniques to successfully predict earthquakes. Although their work was performed in a laboratory setting, the experiment closely mimics real-life conditions, and the results could be used to predict the timing of a real earthquake.  The team, from the University of Cambridge, … Continue reading “Machine learning used to predict earthquakes in a lab setting”

Using artificial intelligence to improve early breast cancer detection

Model developed at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory could reduce false positives and unnecessary surgeries. Every year 40,000 women die from breast cancer in the U.S. alone. When cancers are found early, they can often be cured. Mammograms are the best test available, but they’re still imperfect and often result in false positive results that … Continue reading “Using artificial intelligence to improve early breast cancer detection”

Now anyone can explore machine learning, no coding required

Now anyone can inch up close to machine learning. It’s teachable in the form of an AI experiment “made with some friends from Google.” You, yes you, can teach a machine (forget coding) using your camera. You can do it live in the browser. Specifically, step into their invite to explore the Teachable Machine and you get … Continue reading “Now anyone can explore machine learning, no coding required”

System for seeing around corners could improve self-driving cars and search-and-rescue

MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) researchers have developed a new system named as “CornerCameras”, to detect objects or people in a hidden scene and measure their speed and trajectory — all in real-time. The CSAIL team’s imaging system, which can work with smartphone cameras, uses information about light reflections to detect objects … Continue reading “System for seeing around corners could improve self-driving cars and search-and-rescue”

WaveNet launches in the Google Assistant

DeepMind’s artificial intelligence talents have been working up capabilities for a consumer product. Sam Shead, Senior Technology Reporter for Business Insider UK, said Google applied software developed by DeepMind for use in its virtual assistant. DeepMind, the AI company, has a version of a WaveNet system for American English and Japanese, according to a blog post … Continue reading “WaveNet launches in the Google Assistant”
