Synced It's All in the Eyes: Google AI Calculates Cardiovascular Risk From Retinal Images

@machinelearnbot

A retinal fundus image is a photograph of the back of the eye taken through the pupil. For more than 100 years these images have been used for detecting eye disease. Now Google has introduced a surprising new use for retinal images: combined with artificial intelligence, they can also predict a pati...


Using Data From Fracking Country, Scientists Train a Neural Network to Detect Earthquakes

Mother Jones

As earthquakes grow more frequent in the central United States--driven at least in part by the fracking boom--researchers have been working on sophisticated new tools, including satellites, underwater seismic sensors, and software to detect temblors and hopefully even predict them. The latest unvei...

Human brain tripled in size over three million years

Daily Mail

The evolution of the human brain may have occurred far more gradually than previously believed. A new study on nearly 100 fossils from several different human species has found that brain size tripled over the course of the last three million years, in a process that was likely slow and consistent,...
