Uber uses machine learning for business and personal rides

Aug 14, 2018 United States
It's not surprising that business travelers sometimes forget to switch their payment method from personal to business when riding with Uber. These innocent mistakes are common with the rise of 'bleisure' trips that mix business and leisure - and they not only hinder productivity for the employee that needs to figure out how to fix the error, but also add extra steps for the travel manager or account administrator.

Computer models could replace animal testing

Jul 16, 2018 United States
A study suggests that advanced algorithms working from large chemical databases can predict a new chemical's toxicity better than standard animal tests. The computer-based approach could replace many animal tests commonly used during consumer product testing. It could also evaluate more chemicals than animal testing, a change that could lead to wider safety assessments.
