AIhub monthly digest: May 2022 – RoboCup virtual, neural collapse, and human-AI collaboration

AIHub

Welcome to our May 2022 monthly digest, where you can catch up with any AIhub stories you may have missed, get the low-down on recent events, and much more. This month, we chat to our latest new voice in AI, interview an award winner, hear about the RoboCup virtual humanoid competition, and check out a music video created with the help of AI. In our latest episode of New voices in AI, we caught up with Nicolo' Brandizzi who told us about his work on human-AI collaboration. You can find all episodes in the series here. We're pleased to announce that we will be giving a tutorial on Science communication for AI researchers at IJCAI-ECAI 2022.


Samsung Galaxy S8 Iris Scanner: Hackers Bypass Biometric Scanners

International Business Times

A group of hackers was able to defeat the iris scanner in the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone using relatively common supplies, creating concerns that biometric logins may not be as foolproof a security measure as once believed. The German hacking collective Chaos Computer Club revealed Monday it was able to gain access to a user's Galaxy S8 with a MacGyver-like solution that involved using a point-and-shoot camera, laser printer and contact lens. Chaos Computer Club completed the hack by taking a photo of a target from about 15 feet. The group took that photo, zoomed in on the target's eye and printed the image with a laser printer made, fittingly, by Samsung. Finally, the group took the printout of the eye and placed it atop the surface of the contact lens to replicate the curvature of an actual eyeball.


Intel AI Powers Samsung Medison's Fetal Ultrasound Smart Workflow

#artificialintelligence

What's New: Samsung Medison and Intel are collaborating on new smart workflow solutions to improve obstetric measurements that contribute to maternal and fetal safety and can help save lives. Using an Intel Core i3 processor, the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit and OpenCV library, Samsung Medison's BiometryAssist automates and simplifies fetal measurements, while LaborAssist automatically estimates the fetal angle of progression (AoP) during labor for a complete understanding of a patient's birthing progress, without the need for invasive digital vaginal exams. "Samsung Medison's BiometryAssist is a semi-automated fetal biometry measurement system that automatically locates the region of interest and places a caliper for fetal biometry, demonstrating a success rate of 97% to 99% for each parameter1. Such high efficacy enables its use in the current clinical practice with high precision." Why It's Needed: According to the World Health Organization, about 295,000 women died during and following pregnancy and childbirth in 2017, even as maternal mortality rates decreased.


How AI & Machine Learning are Changing MFA?

#artificialintelligence

The multi-factor authentication market is experiencing new dynamics. For the last 15 years, strong authentication was not a top of mind concern for organizations and was mainly based on hardware tokens generating one-time passwords (OTPs), a temporary 6 or 8 digit password. The user was required to first generate an OTP on his token and then copy/paste it into his online portal. It has been pretty much about two-factor authentication: "something you know" and "something you have." Later on, in 2013, Apple released its first integrated mobile biometry solution: TouchID, adding a new factor to the authentication process related to "something you are."


Research Shows How AI Can Help Reduce Opioid Use After Surgery

According to the World Health Organization, approximately 295,000 women died during and following pregnancy and childbirth in 2017, even as maternal mortality rates have been decreasing. While every pregnancy and birth is unique, most maternal deaths are preventable. Research from the Perinatal Institute found that tracking fetal growth is essential for good prenatal care and can help prevent stillbirths when physicians are able to recognize growth restrictions. Samsung Medison and Intel are collaborating on new smart workflow solutions to improve obstetric measurements that contribute to maternal and fetal safety and can help save lives. Using an Intel Core i3 processor, the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit and OpenCV toolkit, Samsung Medison's BiometryAssist automates and simplifies fetal measurements, while LaborAssist automatically estimates the fetal angle of progression (AoP) during labor for a complete understanding of a patient's birthing progress, without the need for invasive digital vaginal exams.
