New leadership for MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab

MIT News

An expert in computer vision, machine learning, and human visual perception, Torralba is a professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a principal investigator at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. "As the inaugural MIT director of our collaboration with IBM, Antonio will closely collaborate with IBM leadership and lab researchers to design and implement the lab's ambitious research agenda," said Chandrakasan, who is also the Vannevar Bush Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. "I am delighted by the appointment of Antonio Torralba as MIT director of the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab," said Dario Gil, vice president of AI and IBM Q at IBM Research, who, along with Chandrakasan, oversees the MIT-IBM collaboration. Torralba and the IBM director will lead the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab, a $240 million investment by IBM in AI efforts over the next 10 years, with $90 million dedicated to supporting MIT research.

#artificialintelligence

MUMBAI: American technology company IBM has said that more than 1,000 Indian companies, including startups, are using the Watson Internet of Things, its data analytics and cognitive artificial-intelligence (AI) platform, to draw insights from enormous amount of data collected through sensors placed on machines and devices. IBM counts Tata Steel, Reliance Group, Tech Mahindra, Maruti-Suzuki, Mahindra & Mahindra, KPIT, Arrow Electronics, Kone, Acculi Labs, Avanijal Agri Automation and Schneider Electric India among its customers and partners. We are working with big brands, medium-sized companies and a phenomenal number of startups, particularly in agriculture and healthcare," said Harriet Green, general manager, Watson Internet of Things, customer engagement and education at IBM. IBM combines its cognitive AI platform called Watson to analyse data collected through various internetof-things (IoT) sensors placed by customers.


Apple Music's Android app adds voice search and social features

Engadget

Apple announced that it would bring your friends' listening habits to Apple Music at WWDC this past summer. Now, Android-using Apple Music fans will be able to see their friends' listening habits, too, with a new update to the app in the Google Play store. The updated Android Apple Music app also has a new voice search, a recently played widget and shortcuts to Beats 1 and Search functions. If you tap and hold the Apple Music app icon, you'll have the option to play Beats 1 or start a new search without having to launch the app first.


Use Machine Learning to Recognize Images With IBM Watson

#artificialintelligence

With the IBM Watson Visual Recognition service, creating mobile apps that can accurately detect and analyze objects in images is easier than ever. Lastly, add your Visual Recognition service's API key to the strings.xml The Watson Java SDK exposes all the features the Visual Recognition service offers through the VisualRecognition class. You can take a picture by simply calling the CameraHelper object's dispatchTakePictureIntent() method, so add the following code inside the event handler: The above method uses the device's default camera app to take the picture. Here's a sample face analysis result: The Watson Visual Recognition service makes it extremely easy for you to create apps that are smart and aware of their surroundings.

How IBM Watson is using AI technology in the health field

@machinelearnbot

At last year's Business Insider IGNITION conference, David Kenny, the general manager of IBM's Watson division, discussed the AI project. According to Kenny, Watson is most advanced in the health field. "About one-third of the time, Watson is proposing an additional diagnosis," Kenny said. With advancements like these, AI could be life-saving technology.


IBM Watson Makes a Treatment Plan for Brain-Cancer Patient in 10 Minutes; Doctors Take 160 Hours

IEEE Spectrum Robotics Channel

A new study, in which IBM Watson took just 10 minutes to analyze a brain-cancer patient's genome and suggest a treatment plan, demonstrates the potential of artificially intelligent medicine to improve patient care. Both the NYGC clinicians and Watson identified mutations in genes that weren't checked in the panel test but which nonetheless suggested potentially beneficial drugs and clinical trials. Both Watson and the expert team received the patient's genome information and identified genes that showed mutations, went through the medical literature to see if those mutations had figured in other cancer cases, looked for reports of successful treatment with drugs, and checked for clinical trials that the patient might be eligible for. IBM's Parida notes that the cost of sequencing an entire genome has plummeted in recent years, opening up the possibility that whole-genome sequencing will soon be a routine part of cancer care.

IBM's Watson AI is learning to understand nuance and context

#artificialintelligence

It's one thing to teach an AI how to find what you're looking for on the internet, it's more impressive to give AI manners and train it to be a customer service agent. In one version of Watson's'Tone Analyzer,' built as a general purpose service, it understands 13 unique human "tones" or ways we express ourselves. These are the tones IBM feels are most important to a customer service agent and include: frustration, satisfaction, excitement, politeness, impoliteness, sadness and sympathy. You can teach the AI to respond in specific ways when customers express a specific emotion -- which would allow it to de-escalate the situation or respond accordingly -- but you can also use it as a training tool to help agents better do their job.
