Scientists have developed an artificial intelligence system that can accurately identify signs of Alzheimer’s disease almost 10 years before clinical symptoms appear.
The lab will be Facebook’s fourth, after sites in Palo Alto, New York, and Paris, and joins similar AI research efforts in the city from Microsoft Corp and Alphabet’s Google. The company will also invest $7 million to support AI research at academic institutions in Montreal.
Baidu is trying to drive a recovery in its fortunes after a string of regulatory investigations last year hit profit. A sharper focus on mobile and artificial intelligence (AI) helped boost the firm in the latest quarter.
We’re constantly disseminating trivia on Facebook and Twitter that, somehow, has created the dangerous illusion that we can comprehend everything, no matter how out of our area of understanding it might be.
According to HDFC Bank, it collaborated with Senseforth and launched ‘EVA’ (Electronic Virtual Assistant) in March this year on its website. The bank said that ‘Eva’ has an accuracy level of over 85 per cent and uptime of 99.9 per cent.
Russia isn’t “beginning” anything in AI. It’s just that its progress in the field has been somewhat below the radar: many Russians work in Silicon Valley companies developing AI, but the top names are not Russian.
Scientists have developed a new artificial intelligence system that can track medical staff through cameras and detect whether they maintain proper hand hygeine, an advance that could reduce the risk of hospital-acquired infections.
For those who still believe that AI and automation will not hit jobs in the media industry, just consider the kind of investments that media houses are now making in AI for the newsroom. Clearly, the next five to ten years would be decisive.
As part of an open letter to the UN, the scientists and business leaders, including world-renowned AI expert Toby Walsh, Elon Musk of Tesla and James Chow of China’s UBTECH, called for the use of lethal autonomous weapons, or killer robots, to be outlawed.
Modern technology has created robots which are smart enough for scientists to fear if they can outsmart humans.
Musk has called for regulation of AI in the past, saying just last month that regulation is needed now or “by the time we are reactive in AI regulation, it’s too late”.
In the social media age, it seems that beauty lies in the eyes of AI
A team of 30 researchers at Microsoft labs in Redmond and Benguluru are busy developing a new class of machine-learning software and tools to embed artificial intelligence (AI) onto bread-crumb size computer processors. The project is part of a paradigm shift within the technology industry.
Facebook and other internet companies face growing government pressure to identify and prevent the spread of terrorist propaganda and recruiting messages on their services. In most cases, Facebook only removes objectionable material if users first report it.
Researchers from University of Bradford in the UK evolved a method that maps out the key features, such as the shape of the cheek, mouth and forehead, of a face at a certain age. The technique uses a method of predictive modelling and applies it to age progression.
