Screening for Skin Disease on Your Laptop

Screening for Skin Disease on Your Laptop

In artificial intelligence, deep learning organizes algorithms into layers (the artificial neural network) that can make its own intelligent decisions. To speed up the learning process, the new network was trained using the parameters of MobileNetV2, a mobile vision application, pre-trained on the ImageNet dataset with 1.4M images.

Layered Materials Grant Sight to Electronic Chips

Researchers at Graphene Flagship partner, the Vienna University of Technology in Austria, hasve reported an image sensor with an integrated artificial neural network capable of learning and classifying images within nanoseconds. The chip is a thousand times faster and uses much less power than conventional vision technologies.

Automated Embryo Selection Could Have Success in Infertility Treatment

Automated Embryo Selection Could Have Success in Infertility Treatment

Researchers have applied artificial intelligence methods to evaluate data of human embryo development. The AI based system photographs the embryos every five minutes, processes the data of their development and notifies any anomalies observed. This increases the likelihood of choosing the most viable and healthy early-stage embryo for IVF procedures.

Reality Checking the IOT story

Market research companies of all sizes generally pitch the 2020 market for Internet of Things at $200-£500 billion. They cite the leading players as companies with around that in total sales! These companies have mostly been large for quite a while so have their traditional businesses collapsed and been replaced by this great new thing? There is no evidence for that. So what do the pundits say these massive sums consist of?
