ISS spacewalk interrupted by suit malfunction

Engadget

A Russian cosmonaut just dealt with a rare spacesuit problem. As CNN's Jackie Wattles observed, mission control ordered Oleg Artemyev back to the International Space Station's airlock after encountering a suit issue. While the exact nature of the trouble wasn't clear as of this writing, NASA commentators noted a "slight fluctuation" in the suit's battery power. Artemyev returned safely, plugged into the station's power supply and resumed operations. We've asked NASA for comment.


Artificial microswimmers can navigate similarly to natural microorganisms, thanks to AI - Dataconomy

#artificialintelligence

Artificial microswimmers that move similarly to naturally occurring swimming microorganisms have recently been the focus of some researchers. Microorganisms are all around us and are closely connected to how people live their daily lives. Microorganisms have piqued the interest of scientists ever since their discovery in the 19th century. They were cultivated for research purposes, but this process is costly and time-consuming. However, high-throughput sequencing technology cannot be developed at the same rate as the culture approach.


Demis Hassabis: AI researcher, entrepreneur & neuroscientist

#artificialintelligence

British born Demis Hassabis has founded a number of companies in his career including Elixir Studios, DeepMind and Isomorphic Labs. Sharing his thoughts on founding companies, Hassabis noted: "The big breakthroughs and new companies that are going to be created in the future are interdisciplinary ones, where you make connections between two disparate subjects, and that's going to happen again and again in the next 20 years. It's going to be where a lot of the big breakthroughs come from." From a young age, Hassabis showed a keen interest in chess and by the age of 13 had reached master standard with an Elo rating of 2300. At 17, Hassabis joined the computer games company Bullfrog Productions, where he worked as a designer on the game Syndicate.


Robots play with play dough - Channel969

#artificialintelligence

The inner child in many of us feels an overwhelming sense of joy when stumbling across a pile of the fluorescent, rubbery mixture of water, salt, and flour that put goo on the map: play dough. While manipulating play dough is fun and easy for 2-year-olds, the shapeless sludge is hard for robots to handle. Machines have become increasingly reliable with rigid objects, but manipulating soft, deformable objects comes with a laundry list of technical challenges, and most importantly, as with most flexible structures, if you move one part, you're likely affecting everything else. Scientists from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and Stanford University recently let robots take their hand at playing with the modeling compound, but not for nostalgia's sake. Their new system learns directly from visual inputs to let a robot with a two-fingered gripper see, simulate, and shape doughy objects.


Using AI to Improve Chronic Disease Outcomes

#artificialintelligence

This article reports the results of a study that follows a multi-year, pragmatic clinical trial in a real world, community based primary care. What started as a quality project evolved to include the development and deployment of Artificial Intelligence (AI) decision support to guide medication choices when treating hypertension (HTN). Results show that primary care physicians significantly improved HTN outcomes as compared to the national average of success. All patients with a hypertension diagnosis were tracked across three years–including the COVID pandemic period. Of the 13, 441 HTN patients 94% had a blood pressure "at goal" (i.e. less than 140/90)–as of their last clinician visit. The last published study of US blood pressure control which occurred prior to the pandemic was 44%. Because the use of AI in primary care is novel as of this writing, the concept of AI is often unfamiliar to many practicing clinicians and medical group leaders.

Russia military to develop weapons using artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

WASHINGTON – The Russian Ministry of Defense said it formed a department dedicated to developing weapons that use artificial intelligence. The announcement was made Aug. 17 by Alexander Osadchu, the head of Russia's military's innovative development department, at the Army 2022 summit, according to the state-owned news agency TASS. "In order to intensify work on the use of artificial intelligence technologies in the interests of creating models of weapons for military and special equipment, a department for the development of artificial intelligence technologies has been created," he said in a statement. The program could serve to counter the Pentagon's top AI authority, the newly formed Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office, which is tasked with expanding the use of AI throughout U.S. the military. The CDAO launched in February and reached full operational capability in June.

Machine learning (ML) is a type of artificial intelligence (AI) that allows software applications to become more accurate at predicting outcomes without being explicitly programmed to do so. Machine learning algorithms use historical data as input to predict new output values.
