Artificial Intelligence

Developing computers that mimic the human brain

Developing computers that mimic the human brain

Oct 18, 2018 United States
As artificial intelligence has become increasingly sophisticated, it has inspired renewed efforts to develop computers whose physical architecture mimics the human brain. One approach, called reservoir computing, allows hardware devices to achieve the higher-dimension calculations required by emerging artificial intelligence. One new device highlights the potential of extremely small mechanical systems to achieve these calculations.

Deep distinguishes recalled-benign mammograms

Oct 16, 2018 United States
An artificial intelligence approach based on deep learning convolutional neural network could identify nuanced mammographic imaging features specific for recalled but benign (false-positive) mammograms and distinguish such mammograms from those identified as malignant or negative.

Model helps robots navigate more like humans do

Model helps robots navigate more like humans do

Oct 9, 2018 United States
When moving through a crowd to reach some end goal, humans can usually navigate the space safely without thinking too much. They can learn from the behavior of others and note any obstacles to avoid. Robots, on the other hand, struggle with such navigational concepts.

Using personal data to predict blood pressure

Using personal data to predict blood pressure

Oct 9, 2018 United States
Engineers used wearable off-the-shelf technology and machine learning to predict, for the first time, an individual's blood pressure and provide personalized recommendations to lower it based on this data.

AI security cameras identify weapons, prevent crime

AI security cameras identify weapons, prevent crime

Oct 8, 2018 United States
The smart security camera and alarm system uses human-computer vision to see and understand threats. When a mugger pulls out a knife, when a kidnapper tries to force a child into a car, when a gunman tries to take a life, the AI security camera can see the threat before it becomes a crime.

AI finds complaints in social networks

AI finds complaints in social networks

Oct 3, 2018 Russia
"Cannot get asleep all night", "a little giddy" and other complaints in social networks can now be translated into formal medical terms, such as insomnia or vertigo. The task of comparing syndromes mentioned by patients and specific medical terms is called the normalization of medical concepts.
