If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …
Self-Supervised Learning has become an exciting direction in AI community. Predicting What You Already Know Helps: Provable Self-Supervised Learning. For self-supervised learning, Rationality implies generalization, provably. Can Pretext-Based Self-Supervised Learning Be Boosted by Downstream Data? FAIR Self-Supervision Benchmark [pdf] [repo]: various benchmark (and legacy) tasks for evaluating quality of visual representations learned by various self-supervision approaches.

Nowadays doctors define and diagnose most diseases on the basis of symptoms. However, that does not necessarily mean that the illnesses of patients with similar symptoms will have identical causes or demonstrate the same molecular changes. In biomedicine, one often speaks of the molecular mechanisms of a disease. This refers to changes in the regulation of genes, proteins or metabolic pathways at the onset of illness. The goal of stratified medicine is to classify patients into various subtypes at the molecular level in order to provide more targeted treatments, wrties the Technical University of Munich in a press release.
Artificial intelligence is playing a massive role in how businesses operate. Businesses today are fully conscious of the value of a great user experience for their success. AI is helping transform everything and enhance Customer Experience in many ways. AI provides an intelligent, convenient, and informed CX at any point along the customer journey. It streamlines processes and enhances automated support to simplify everyday tasks.
You probably know Dyson for their vacuums, or maybe that too-powerful dryer you've tentatively stuck your hands in while waiting for a flight. Maybe you've seen their hair dryers or fans. Dyson is a company that develops premium products that move air around. Recently, the firm expanded with a very strange face-mounted air purifier. While showcasing the product, Dyson took pains to highlight some of the research behind it. It offered a peek into their labs, providing some insight into a future of products that expand well beyond premium vacuum cleaners.
To mark its its centennial, Japan's Asahi Kasei has unveiled the AKXY2 concept pod vehicle. The vehicle has been designed to reimagine values of sustainability, satisfaction and society and how these will influence the needs of future mobility on the road to automation and electrification. When looked at closely, the concept AKXY2 can be seen featuring a split body with a streamlined lower section and an upper glass canopy. The latter can be lifted up vertically, while a door folds down to provide access to the cabin. The exterior of the vehicle features slender lighting units and aerodynamic wheel covers with transparent inserts.
In the fifth of a series of blogs from our global offices, we provide a overview of key trends in artificial intelligence in China. What is China's strategy for Artificial Intelligence? In March 2021, the Chinese government released the Outline of the 14th Five-Year Plan of the National Economic and Social Development of the People's Republic of China and Vision 2035. This includes more than 50 references to "[artificial] intelligence", reflecting China aims to develop of a new generation of information technology powered by artificial intelligence. Specifically, China intends to drive industry through science and technology projects to develop cutting-edge fundamental theories and algorithms, create specialized chips and build open-source algorithm platforms such as deep learning frameworks.
Powered by AI, ElliQ is a voice-operated robotic care companion designed to foster independence and provide support for older adults. About 1 in 4 adults 65 and older are considered to be socially isolated, putting them at increased risk for a wide range of health conditions, from dementia to heart disease and stroke. Many don't have family and friends who live nearby or visit regularly; and the number of professional caregivers is failing to keep up with demand as the U.S. population ages. Responding to the need, the New York State Office for the Aging announced Wednesday that it is partnering with Intuition Robotics to bring an AI robotic care companion into the homes of 800 older adults as part of the state's efforts to battle social isolation and support aging in place. NYSOFA is working with local offices for the aging and other partners to identify older adults who would most benefit from ElliQ by Intuition Robotics, which the Israeli company describes as first-ever proactive and empathetic AI robotic care companion.
International scientists led by China's BGI•Research released the world's first panoramic spatial atlases of life on May 4, examining the cellular dynamics of organisms at different developmental stages and providing potentially significant new information for disease treatment, development and aging, and an improved understanding of biological evolution. In a series of studies published in Cell Press journals, members of Spatio-Temporal Omics Consortium (STOC), an international scientific consortium, used the spatially resolved transcriptomics technology Stereo-seq to produce spatio-temporal cellular maps of mice, small fruit flies, zebrafish and the Arabidopsis (thale cress) plant. The papers demonstrate how Stereo-seq has achieved a major breakthrough in spatial resolution and panoramic field of view, enabling analysis of the distribution and placement of molecules and cells in situ, and over time. Over 80 scientists from leading universities in 16 countries have so far collaborated as part of STOC focusing on using spatially resolved, cellular resolution omics technologies to map and understand life. It builds on the achievements of single-cell sequencing, elevating it to the next level by enabling scientists to track a cell's precise location and how it interacts with its neighbors.
