How this AI tool can detect Alzheimer's by analyzing subtle linguistic patterns

#artificialintelligence

We may be one step closer to an artificial intelligence (AI) tool capable of diagnosing Alzheimer's disease faster and more accurately, according to a new study conducted by Stevens Institute of Technology. "This is a real breakthrough. We're opening an exciting new field of research, and making it far easier to explain to patients why the A.I. came to the conclusion that it did, while diagnosing patients. This addresses the important question of trustability of A.I .systems in the medical field," said K.P. Subbalakshmi, the lead researcher. The new AI tool involves the analyzation of subtle linguistic patterns characteristic of people with a neurodegenerative disease.


How AI is quietly revolutionizing the back office

#artificialintelligence

We are excited to bring Transform 2022 back in-person July 19 and virtually July 20 - 28. Join AI and data leaders for insightful talks and exciting networking opportunities. Artificial intelligence (AI) is making a big splash in enterprise applications across the board, but most of the attention has gone to public-facing functions like chatbots and personal or professional assistants. But this masks the fact that much of the real action is taking place behind the scenes, in the myriad back office processes that contribute to the costs and complexities of running a modern organization. AI is not like previous generations of technology, however, which were targeted at specific operations and crafted to operate in a predefined manner. Instead, the challenge for the enterprise is to create the kind of training and development processes that allow AI to place traditionally manual processes under fully automated control – essentially assuming the day-to-day work of running the office while the labor force focuses on continued optimization and strategic development.


Come sail away

#artificialintelligence

Without maritime transportation, the global economy would cease to exist. Accounting for 80% of worldwide trade, the maritime transportation industry influences the economic sustainability of each and every country as it provides a safer, more viable method of international commerce. Maritime shipping is the more preferred method, but oceanic travel is an area that is greatly congested with a plethora of serious conflicts. Thus, Israel's startup ecosystem is using advanced intelligence to secure the knot with innovative technologies working towards solving the issues associated with maritime transportation. Each startup listed below is hyper-focused on a specific maritime transportation issue– creating a culmination of service towards such a widespread struggle.


Experts Weigh In on Data-First Modernization

#artificialintelligence

Most companies recognize the potential for data insights to improve customer experience, better direct marketing strategies, create new products and services, and optimize operations, among myriad compelling use cases. "If you need outsiders to tell you your data is valuable, you're living in the wrong century," says Wayne Sadin, an independent advisor and former CIO/CTO/CDO. Data is even more valuable during this pandemic period, when economies are volatile, markets are uncertain, and businesses face unprecedented challenges that underscore the need for intelligent insights to guide strategic decision-making. "The pandemic has already accelerated many organizations' digital transformation programs, and in many cases, data has emerged as an invaluable component of the successes of the modern-day enterprise," notes Sridhar Iyengar, managing director at Zoho. "Those businesses which are not already leaning on data insights risk being left behind." Defining and seeking clarity on how to value data as an asset.


Movies to understand how Artificial Intelligence works - The Gal Times

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is more present than ever in people's lives, it has been used to create the algorithms of social networks like Facebook or TikTok, to show suggestions on streaming platforms like Spotify or to automate Google search results. This concept was first used in 1956 in a Dartmouth College conference,in the United States, and since then, the cinema has not stopped using it to create generally not very optimistic stories that deal with themes such as the replacement of human beings and the rebellion of the machines. Understanding everything that happens around this discipline of computer science is not always that simple. For this reason, Infobae made this list with movies that will help understand AI in a practical and entertaining way. Apart from being very famous in various countries around the world, it has been categorized as a cult movie. It belongs to the genres of action and science fiction.


Climate research now looks at the carbon footprint of artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

For three decades now, carbon emissions from cars have been a political and social issue; there are reporting obligations for manufacturers, government regulation, and much accompanying research. A similar approach might be taken with a modern product that is spreading at an enormous pace and also has an impact on the climate: "artificial intelligence" (AI), software based on adaptive algorithms for various purposes, from self-driving cars to automatic image recognition and translation tools to optimizing logistics. Here, too, climate research is now beginning to measure the carbon footprint. A framework for this is provided by a new study with contributions from the Berlin-based climate research institute MCC (Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change). The study is published in the journal Nature Climate Change.


Artificial Intelligence in Space

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a fast-growing field full of exciting possibilities, not only for life on Earth, but for extraterrestrial life as well. Space missions have been utilizing artificial intelligence for decades now, and it is only becoming more prevalent. As companies and space agencies shift to automation and seek to minimize the inherent risks of space exploration, we will see a boom of AI in this field. However, before describing past and future space missions and developments, let's discuss briefly what AI is and what it is capable of. Broadly, artificial intelligence is a branch of computer science involving the development of machines (programs or computers) that replicate intelligence (human or other forms).


Building the Vision Transformer From Scratch

#artificialintelligence

Though originally developed for NLP, the transformer architecture is gradually making its way into many different areas of deep learning, including image classification and labeling and even reinforcement learning. It's an amazingly versatile architecture and very powerful at representing whatever it's being used to model. As part of my effort to understand fundamental architectures and their applications better, I decided to implement the vision transformer (ViT) from the paper¹ directly, without referencing the official codebase. In this post, I'll explain how it works (and how my version is implemented). I'll start with a brief review of how transformers work, but I won't get too deep into the weeds here since there are many other excellent guides to transformers (see The Illustrated Transformer for my favorite one).


Mental health support made accessible using AI-powered chat - Microsoft Accessibility Blog

#artificialintelligence

With current research showing that most users do not use mental health apps beyond two weeks, the texting platform offers a more promising alternative. The platform works by offering pushed text messages throughout the day, giving the user the opportunity to engage whenever they're ready. Because it uses SMS, there's no need for data or internet access to interact with the AI bot. After signing up on the MHA website, a text conversation is initiated and the user answers questions. From there, the platform uses machine learning to drive specific engagement interests and learn more about the activities of the user, like the topics they're interested in and the best format for information.
