Artificial intelligence could one day be used to help identify a person contemplating suicide. Around 800,000 people die a year from suicide, according to the World Health Organization. It's currently the second-leading cause of death in the U.S. among people between the ages of 15 and 24. But a new study is using brain scans and AI to show how someone experiencing suicidal thoughts thinks differently about life and death. The results were published in Nature Human Behavior.
A Turkish police officer was stabbed to death in Istanbul late Sunday by a suspected Islamic State terrorist, state media reported. The suspect reportedly was shot and killed after the stabbing. The latest killing came just days after an alleged ISIS plot involving a drone attack on Turkey's Incirlik air base -- which is used by the U.S. Air Force -- was foiled. Renad Bakiev, a Russian national who previously traveled to Syria to join ISIS, was detained in the southern city of Adana for planning the drone attack, police said Thursday.
Two Texas men who were killed earlier this year may have been lured to their deaths by an online dating app used by the pair's killers, investigators said Monday. There have been two suspects named in the case; cousins Brandon Alexander Lyons, 18, and Jerrett Jamal Allen, 26. Cousins Brandon Alexander Lyons, 18, and Jerrett Jamal Allen, 26, were named in connection with the slaying of Soliman. Nguyen's family reported the student missing April 1 after they could not reach him.
Thats because scientists from the University of Adelaide in Australia have used deep learning technology to analyze the computerized tomography (CT) scans of patient organs, in what could one day serve as an early warning system to catch heart disease, cancer, and other diseases early so that intervention can take place. The AI analyzes CT scans to make its decisions. For one thing, the AIs 70-percent predictive accuracy when looking at scans is in line with the manual predictions made by experts. We used a very small cohort of 48 patients in this study to show that our approach can work, but in general deep learning works better if you can give it much more data.

Faith Hedgepeth was bludgeoned to death four years ago inside her off-campus apartment at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill in a case that remains unsolved. The killer left behind a chilling note and traces of DNA -- which a forensic technology company has now used to create a 3-D sketch of what the suspect might look like. A "snapshot tool" developed by Parabon NanoLabs has created a 3-D image of the killer based on DNA traits, and authorities are hopeful the sketch could lead to a break in the case. The Reston, Va.-based Parabon Nanolabs, with funding from the Department of Defense, debuted the breakthrough type of analysis called DNA phenotyping in 2015 which the company said can predict a person's physical appearance from the tiniest DNA samples, like a speck of blood or strand of hair. The DNA phenotyping service, commercially known as "Snapshot," could put a face on millions of unsolved cases, and generate investigative leads when the trail has gone cold.
