AI could help cities detect water leaks

AI could help cities detect water leaks

Costly water losses in municipal water systems could be significantly reduced using sensors and new artificial intelligence (AI) technology. The technology has the potential to detect even small leaks in pipes.It combines sophisticated signal processing techniques and AI software to identify telltale signs of leaks carried via sound in water pipes.

Recreate your favorite paintings using deep learning and 3-D printing

The empty frames hanging inside the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum serve as a tangible reminder of the world's biggest unsolved art heist. While the original masterpieces may never be recovered, a team from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) might be able to help, with a new system aimed at designing reproductions of paintings.

Artificial intelligence predicts treatment effectiveness

Artificial intelligence predicts treatment effectiveness

How can a doctor predict the treatment outcome of an individual patient? Traditionally, the effectiveness of medical treatments is studied by randomised trials where patients are randomly divided into two groups: one of the groups is given treatment, and the other a placebo. Is this really the only reliable way to evaluate treatment effectiveness, or could something be done differently?

Neural networks generate synthetic fingerprints

Neural networks generate synthetic fingerprints

Fingerprint authentication systems are a widely trusted, ubiquitous form of biometric authentication, deployed on billions of smartphones and other devices worldwide. Yet a new study reveals a surprising level of vulnerability in these systems. Using a neural network trained to synthesize human fingerprints, the research team evolved a fake fingerprint that could potentially fool a touch-based authentication system for up to one in five people.

Two-step training helps robots interpret human language

To robots, humans' instructions are incredibly complex. Even a relatively simple command like "Go to the house, passing the tree on your right," may require hundreds of attempts to learn. And if the command changes to "Go to the house, passing the tree on your left," the robots needs to re-learn the task from scratch.
