Can AI and Robotics Disrupt the Defence Industry?


The defence industry technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics are changing the industry and enable intelligent warfare in the decades to come. These emerging technologies will have a significant impact on defence contractors. Integrating AI into the design of traditional battle networks will immensely improve the performance of current platforms and forces soon. Prime contractors will maintain an advantage during this phase. However, as robotics and AI's capabilities arrive at an inflection point, the U.S Department of Defence will switch to smaller AI-and robotics-based systems.

The Amazing Ways Duolingo Is Using Artificial Intelligence To Deliver Free Language Learning


It's a challenge to learn a new language, especially once we're past 18 years old. But Duolingo, self-proclaimed as "the world's best way to learn a language" and seconded by reviewers at the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, is set to change that with an assist from artificial intelligence (AI). Duolingo launched in 2011, and through a powerful mix of personalized learning, immediate feedback and gamification/rewards, it has become one of the most downloaded educational apps today. Let's take a look at how artificial intelligence helps the company deliver personalized language lessons to its 300 million users. Founded in Pittsburgh by Carnegie Mellon University computer scientist Luis von Ahn, who is renowned for creating CAPTCHA, Duolingo's mission is to "make education free and accessible to everyone in the world."

In Collaboration with the National Institutes of Health, IBM Research Dives Deep into Biomarkers of Schizophrenia


Sinai School of Medicine, Stanford University and the Northern California Institute for Research and Education, IBM Research is undertaking a new research initiative funded by the National Institutes of Health. As part of a broader $99 million, 5-year research initiative spanning multiple public and private organizations and research institutions, this work will tap into AI and big data to help better identify individuals at high-risk of developing schizophrenia, a serious mental illness affecting how a person thinks, feels and behaves. Schizophrenia is often characterized by alterations to a person's thoughts, feelings and behaviors, which can include a loss of contact with reality known as psychosis. A better understanding of how this disease could be detected prior to psychosis could help to postpone or even prevent the transition to psychosis, as well as possibly improve outcomes. The project is a component of the Accelerating Medicines Partnership (AMP), a collaboration between the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), pharmaceutical companies, biotech firms and nonprofit organizations.

Dr Anthony Loschner: Artificial Intelligence Can Benefit Underserved Populations – IAM Network


Artificial intelligence allows underserved populations to gain access to a radiologist, pointed out Anthony L. Loschner, MD, assistant professor and associate program director, Critical Care Fellowship Program, Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine. Artificial intelligence allows underserved populations to gain access to a radiologist by just clicking a snapshot on their cell phone, said Anthony L. Loschner, MD, assistant professor and associate program director, Critical Care Fellowship Program, Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, about his presentation at this year's CHEST meeting.TranscriptIntroduce us to the use of artificial intelligence in pulmonary medicine.The title of my presentation was "Artificial Intelligence in Pulmonary Medicine: The Rise of the Machines." And we reviewed the major articles that had been published in the last year or so guiding future AI in pulmonary medicine.There were some reviews that were done, literature reviews, where I reviewed articles on how AI is currently being used. Examples include great work by a Stanford team called ChestNet, and they're using a deep learning algorithm to read chest x-rays on any media pretty much.

Artificial Intelligence Applications -- Space to Underwater


Amazon Go is the first store where no checkout is required. Customer simply enter the store using the Amazon Go app to browse and take the required products or items they want and then leave. Customer being able to purchase, products without suing a counter or checkout. The following video shows how Self-driving Robot (Delivery Bot and named as YAPE) brings goods directly to you, it uses Facial Recognition to recognize the customer to deliver. It makes delivery fast and easy, bot easily navigates sidewalks. YAPE has a 70 kg loading capacity and can travel 80km on a single charge.

Bursting Earth's Bubble: Artificial Intelligence Helps Find Magnetic Eruptions in Space


MMS look for explosive reconnection events as it flies through the magnetopause -- the boundary region where Earth's magnetic butts up against the solar wind that flows throughout the solar system. An alert pops up in your email: The latest spacecraft observations are ready. You now have 24 hours to scour 84 hours-worth of data, selecting the most promising split-second moments you can find. The data points you choose, depending on how you rank them, will download from the spacecraft in the highest possible resolution; researchers may spend months analyzing them. Everything else will be overwritten like it was never collected at all.

Asteroid samples escaping from jammed NASA spacecraft

FOX News

U.S. Space Force officials swear in first recruits for the defense branch on'Fox & amp; Friends.' CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – A NASA spacecraft is stuffed with so much asteroid rubble from this week's grab that it's jammed open and precious particles are drifting away in space, scientists said Friday. Scientists announced the news three days after the spacecraft named Osiris-Rex briefly touched asteroid Bennu, NASA's first attempt at such a mission. The mission's lead scientist, Dante Lauretta of the University of Arizona, said Tuesday's operation 200 million miles away collected far more material than expected for return to Earth -- in the hundreds of grams. The sample container on the end of the robot arm penetrated so deeply into the asteroid and with such force, however, that rocks got sucked in and became wedged around the rim of the lid. In this image taken from video released by NASA, the Osiris-Rex spacecraft touches the surface of asteroid Bennu on Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2020.

IBM and Pfizer claim AI can predict Alzheimer's onset with 71% accuracy


Pfizer and IBM researchers claim to have developed a machine learning technique that can predict Alzheimer's disease years before symptoms develop. By analyzing small samples of language data obtained from clinical verbal tests, the team says their approach achieved 71% accuracy when tested against a group of cognitively healthy people. Alzheimer's disease begins with vague, often misinterpreted signs of mild memory loss followed by a slow, progressively serious decline in cognitive ability and quality of life. According to the nonprofit Alzheimer's Association, more than 5 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer's, and every state is expected to see at least a 14% rise in the prevalence of Alzheimer's between 2017 and 2025. Due to the nature of Alzheimer's disease and how it takes hold in the brain, it's likely that the best way to delay its onset is through early intervention.
