IBM Patents Machine Learning Models for Drug Discovery

#artificialintelligence

Armonk, N.Y. - 07 Apr 2017: IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that its scientists have been granted a patent on machine learning models to predict therapeutic indications and side effects from various drug information sources. IBM Research has implemented a cognitive association engine to identify significant linkages between predicted therapeutic indications and side effects, and a visual analytics system to support the interactive exploration of these associations.



New machine learning models can detect hate speech and violence from texts

#artificialintelligence

The words we use and our writing styles can reveal information about our preferences, thoughts, emotions and behaviours. Using this information, a new study from the University of Eastern Finland has developed machine learning models that can detect antisocial behaviours, such as hate speech and indications of violence, from texts.
