How AI understands emotion


Lia's creator Soul Machines is developing digital humans, complete with digital brains, who are portrayed by actual humans. Verizon's Labs showcases innovators like Soul Machines to explore how 5G networks support cutting edge technology that contributes to the betterment of society. Having the speed and bandwidth of a 5G connection is critical to ensuring that digital interactions feel humanized. In human-to-human engagement, the brain rapidly identifies and processes data points such as tone and non-verbal cues. In digital-to-human engagement, mimicking human-like interactions requires 5G's bandwidth and speed.

Technology News: Artificial Intelligence Can Now Identify PTSD


Technological development is only speeding up. Virtual reality and high-tech solutions are changing reality in its numerous aspects. Today, we have smart homes with internet-connected kettles and robotic vacuum cleaners, job interviews are conducted by AI, and countless gadgets are meant to make our lives more comfortable and cozy. Very soon, humans may even be able to communicate without words, converting thoughts into electric signals. And healthcare, of course, is not excluded from this rapid pace of advances, with psychiatric disorders now diagnosed by man-made machines.

Psychosis, Dreams, and Memory in AI - Science in the News


The original dream of research in artificial intelligence was to understand what it is that makes us who we are. Because of this, artificial intelligence has always been close to cognitive science, even if the two have been somewhat far apart in practice. Functional AIs have tended to do best at quickly finding'good-enough' approaches to problems that are easy to state but whose solutions are difficult or tedious to describe explicitly. A more modest definition of artificial intelligence might read as'computer programs that can learn how to perform tasks rather than require specific hardwired instructions.' It turns out this encompasses a lot--think language processing in Amazon's Alexa, or Google's AlphaGo--and AI has recently even been able to produce art.

Consciousness And The Inter Mind


We Do Not See Objects We Detect Objects. 10 Arguments For The Conscious Mind. 4 Arguments For The Inter Mind. What Is And Where Is Conscious Space. 10 Developing An Artificial Inter Mind. 10 Conscious Artificial Intelligence Using The Inter Mind Model. 10 Human Consciousness Transfer Using The Inter Mind Model. 10 Reality Is A Simulation Using The Inter Mind Model. 10 If A Tree Falls In A Forest Using The Inter Mind Model. 10 The Big Bang happens and a new Universe is created. This Universe consists of Matter, Energy, and Space. After billions of years of complicated interactions and processes the Matter, Energy, and Space produce a planet with Conscious Life Forms (CLFs). In the course of their evolution the CLFs will need to See each other in order to live and interact with each other. But what does it really mean to See? A CLF is first of all a Physical Thing. There is no magic power that just lets a CLF See another CLF.

App Utilizes AI To Help Everyone Assess and Improve Their Mental Health


Increasingly, we recognize that mental health is like physical health. It must be regularly assessed and treated. Still, we in the west often asssume that it is a problem only in the most developed countries. In fact, not surprisingly, mental health issues plague every country from rich to poor without regard to income. Sachin Chaudhry, an Ashoka Fellow, has developed an app using AI to help regularly assess mental health.

Transformer in chief: the newest member of the C-suite - Raconteur


It may be telling that one of the smash hit books of the past year has been on sleep. Berkeley professor of neuroscience Matthew Walker's Why We Sleep was a comprehensive analysis of why humans need to sleep, which doubled up as a polemic against the habits that lead to insomnia. He marvels: "A hundred years ago, less than 2 per cent of the population in the United States slept six hours or less a night. Now, almost 30 per cent of American adults do." The health implications are shocking.

Opinion How Artificial Intelligence Can Save Your Life


Using A.I., researchers can make better predictions about who is going to get depressed next week, and who is going to try to kill themselves. The Crisis Text Line is a suicide prevention hotline in which people communicate through texting instead of phone calls. Using A.I. technology, the organization has analyzed more than 100 million texts it has received. The idea is to help counselors understand who is really in immediate need of emergency care. You'd think that the people most in danger of harming themselves would be the ones who use words like "suicide" or "die" most often.

Clearhead uses tech to tackle mental health - Health Informatics New Zealand


The portal uses an artificial intelligence chatbot to screen users for mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. It recommends mental health resources, allows users to search for and book professional help and includes a Wellbeing Portal to monitor their progress and goals.

Artificial intelligence could spot early signs of schizophrenia

New Scientist

People in the early stages of schizophrenia have telltale verbal signs that could be spotted by speech analysis software, long before doctors notice. Those who are developing the condition tend to be vaguer in their speech and to use words related to voices and sounds, a study has found. People with schizophrenia have delusions and hallucinations, such as hearing voices, as well as confusion and memory problems.
