Artificial intelligence to boost Earth system science

Artificial intelligence to boost Earth system science

A study by German scientists shows that artificial intelligence can substantially improve our understanding of the climate and the Earth system. Especially the potential of deep learning has only partially been exhausted so far. In particular, complex dynamic processes such as hurricanes, fire propagation, and vegetation dynamics can be better described with the help of AI.

Facial recognition for coins

Facial recognition for coins

Countless historical coins that differ from each other only in details are in storage at German state museums. Unlike paintings, these archaeological artifacts may not be labeled, marked or barcoded. Researchers have developed a scanner and analysis software in collaboration which digitally capture the visual features of coins and describe them exactly in a matter of seconds.

Putting neural networks under the microscope

Researchers are putting the machine-learning systems known as neural networks under the microscope. In a study that sheds light on how these systems manage to translate text from one language to another, the researchers developed a method that pinpoints individual nodes, or "neurons," in the networks that capture specific linguistic features.

Using artificial intelligence to save bees

Using artificial intelligence to save bees

A beekeeper teamed up with researchers to develop an app that counts the number of Varroa mites in beehives. This parasite is one of the two main threats - along with pesticides - to bees' long-term survival. Knowing the extent of the mites' infestation will allow beekeepers to protect their bees more effectively.

A step closer to self aware machines

A step closer to self aware machines

Robots that are self-aware have been science fiction fodder for decades, and now we may finally be getting closer. Humans are unique in being able to imagine themselves—to picture themselves in future scenarios. Humans can also learn by revisiting past experiences and reflecting on what went right or wrong. While humans and animals acquire and adapt their self-image over their lifetime, most robots still learn using human-provided…

An AI that "de-biases" algorithms

An AI that "de-biases" algorithms

We've learned in recent years that AI systems can be unfair, which is dangerous when they're increasingly being used to do everything from predict crime to determine what news we consume. Last year's study showing the racism of face-recognition algorithms demonstrated a fundamental truth about AI: if you train with biased data, you'll get biased results.

Abnormal chest X-rays quickly processed by AI

New research has found that a novel Artificial Intelligence system can dramatically reduce the time needed to ensure that abnormal chest X-rays with critical findings will receive an expert radiologist opinion sooner, cutting the average delay from 11 days to less than 3 days.

Identifying artificial intelligence "blind spots"

Identifying artificial intelligence "blind spots"

A novel model developed by MIT and Microsoft researchers identifies instances in which autonomous systems have "learned" from training examples that don't match what's actually happening in the real world. Engineers could use this model to improve the safety of artificial intelligence systems, such as driverless vehicles and autonomous robots.

Machine learning in action for the humanitarian sector

Governments across the world came together in Marrakesh this past December to ratify a pact to improve cooperation on international migration. Among other objectives, the Global Compact for Migration seeks to use "accurate and disaggregated data as a basis for evidence-based policies." How can machine learning technologies help with deeply polarizing societal issues like migration?

Precision pest control

Precision pest control

By recognising locusts through the smartphone's camera, the app will be able to identify the stage of the insect's growth and record its location through the phone's IP address. This information can then be accessed by the farmer so that they can use pesticides more accurately and to target the insects in the early stages of their lifespan, significantly reducing the amount of crop damage.

AI for smarter forest management

Down on the ground, it isn't possible to get a full understanding of the richness of resources in a given forest area or predict any potential risks to the health of plants and trees. Comprehensive, manual surveying and data collection of forested areas can take months, with considerable strain placed on budgets and manpower.

AI outperformed human experts in identifying cervical precancer

A research team has developed a computer algorithm that can analyze digital images of a woman's cervix and accurately identify precancerous changes that require medical attention. This artificial intelligence approach, called automated visual evaluation, has the potential to revolutionize cervical cancer screening, particularly in low-resource settings.
