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.

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.

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

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.

Helping to improve medical image analysis with deep learning

Sep 26, 2018 United States
Medical imaging creates tremendous amounts of data: many emergency room radiologists must examine as many as 200 cases each day, and some medical studies contain up to 3,000 images. Each patient's image collection can contain 250GB of data, ultimately creating collections across organizations that are petabytes in size.

Machine learning algorithm automatically sorts zebrafish eggs

Machine learning algorithm automatically sorts zebrafish eggs

Sep 19, 2018 Germany
Zebrafish possess almost all of the same genes we humans do - and that makes their eggs the perfect model organisms for use in genetic and drug research. Previously, samples have had to be prepared manually, which is a very time-consuming task. Now, however, a clever machine learning algorithm will be able to separate and sort the fish eggs automatically.
