Nuance partners with The Academy to launch The AI Collaborative

#artificialintelligence

Nuance has partnered with The Health Management Academy (The Academy) to launch The AI Collaborative, an industry group focused on advancing healthcare using artificial intelligence and machine learning. Nuance became a household name for creating the speech engine recognition engine behind Siri. In recent years, the company has put a strong focus on AI solutions for healthcare and is now a full-service partner of 77 percent of US hospitals and is trusted by over 500,000 physicians daily. Earlier this year, Microsoft acquired Nuance with the promise of ushering in a "new era of outcomes-based AI". Microsoft is also active in the healthcare space and its acquisition of Nuance was investigated by regulators over concerns it may reduce competition.

This is what may happen when we merge the human brain and computers

#artificialintelligence

Why are we on the verge of creating a technology that will combine the computer with the human nervous system into a single complex? Can a computer system handle the flood of data from billions of living neurons? I will try to answer these questions in this article. In the previous article "Individual artificial intelligence: A new technology that will change our world", we talked about the fact that a new type of artificial intelligence will become a bioelectronic hybrid in which a living human brain and a computer will work together. Thus, a new type of AI will be born – individual artificial intelligence.


A Sensor Sniffs for Cancer, Using Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) have developed a sensor that can be trained to sniff for cancer, with the help of artificial intelligence. Although the training doesn't work the same way one trains a police dog to sniff for explosives or drugs, the sensor has some similarity to how the nose works. The nose can detect more than a trillion different scents, even though it has just a few hundred types of olfactory receptors. The pattern of which odor molecules bind to which receptors creates a kind of molecular signature that the brain uses to recognize a scent. Like the nose, the cancer detection technology uses an array of multiple sensors to detect a molecular signature of the disease.


5 Trends in Medical Health Technology in 2022

#artificialintelligence

It is predicted that technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, extended reality and the Internet of Things (IoT) will be introduced further among related workers, leading to the development and provision of new and better treatments and services. In the months following the outbreak of the COVID-19 outbreak, the proportion of telemedicine consulting has risen sharply from 0.1% to 43.5%, and is expected to rise further in the future, as this trend could save more patients' lives, said Deloitte Accounting Firm analyst. . To achieve this goal, the next-generation portable device, heart rate, stress, and blood oximetry, enables doctors to accurately determine the patient's condition in real time. During the COVID-19 period, doctors built'virtual hospital rooms' in some areas to observe the treatment status of patients in various areas through the central communication infrastructure. The Pennsylvania Emergency Medical Center is developing a high-quality'virtual emergency room'.


Prognostic value of global deep white matter DTI metrics for 1-year outcome prediction in ICU traumatic brain injury patients: an MRI-COMA and CENTER-TBI combined study - PubMed

#artificialintelligence

Purpose: A reliable tool for outcome prognostication in severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) would improve intensive care unit (ICU) decision-making process by providing objective information to caregivers and family. This study aimed at designing a new classification score based on magnetic resonance (MR) diffusion metrics measured in the deep white matter between day 7 and day 35 after TBI to predict 1-year clinical outcome. Methods: Two multicenter cohorts (29 centers) were used. MRI-COMA cohort (NCT00577954) was split into MRI-COMA-Train (50 patients enrolled between 2006 and mid-2014) and MRI-COMA-Test (140 patients followed up in clinical routine from 2014) sub-cohorts. These latter patients were pooled with 56 ICU patients (enrolled from 2014 to 2020) from CENTER-TBI cohort (NCT02210221).


Healthcare Ethics in AI: Can software Make Ethical Decisions?

#artificialintelligence

As data analytics and other digital innovations become more broadly adopted in healthcare, artificial intelligence will move from an executive role to a supporting position in clinical decision-making. Hospitals are previously using AI tools to expand custom care strategy, verify patients in for appointments, and inquire "How can I pay my bill?" To respond to fundamental questions like. Healthcare ethics in AI is gaining traction as an "intelligent associate" for physicians and practitioners. AI helps radiologists examine images quicker and organize them in a good manner.


Artificial Intelligence to Support UAVs in Healthcare

#artificialintelligence

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or simply drones, are used in a plethora of civil applications due to their ease of deployment, low maintenance cost, high mobility, and ability to hover. A main advantage of drones is that, in contrast to other vehicles, they are not restricted to traveling over a road network and thus, can swiftly move over disperse locations. Such vehicles are utilized for many applications such as the real-time monitoring of road traffic, civil infrastructure inspection, wireless coverage, delivery of goods, security and surveillance, precision agriculture, and healthcare. Regarding the latter, drones can be utilized in natural disaster relief, as search and rescue units, as transfer units, and to support telemedicine. For drones to be efficient in such applications, their scheduled and coordinated flying is crucial. Moreover, given that drones typically use an electric motor and store the required energy in batteries, their scheduled charging is crucial to maximizing their availability.Controlling drones demands efficient algorithms that can solve problems that involve a large number of heterogeneous entities (e.g., drones’ owners), each one having its own goals, needs, and incentives (e.g., amount of goods to transport), while they operate in highly dynamic environments (e.g., variable number of drones) and having to deal with a number of uncertainties (e.g., future requests, emergency situations). In this context, artificial intelligence (AI) techniq...


Technique protects privacy when making online recommendations

#artificialintelligence

Algorithms recommend products while we shop online or suggest songs we might like as we listen to music on streaming apps. These algorithms work by using personal information like our past purchases and browsing history to generate tailored recommendations. The sensitive nature of such data makes preserving privacy extremely important, but existing methods for solving this problem rely on heavy cryptographic tools requiring enormous amounts of computation and bandwidth. MIT researchers may have a better solution. They developed a privacy-preserving protocol that is so efficient it can run on a smartphone over a very slow network.


Image Classification in Machine Learning [Intro + Tutorial]

#artificialintelligence

Image Classification is one of the most fundamental tasks in computer vision. It has revolutionized and propelled technological advancements in the most prominent fields, including the automobile industry, healthcare, manufacturing, and more. How does Image Classification work, and what are its benefits and limitations? Keep reading, and in the next few minutes, you'll learn the following: Image Classification (often referred to as Image Recognition) is the task of associating one (single-label classification) or more (multi-label classification) labels to a given image. Here's how it looks like in practice when classifying different birds-- images are tagged using V7. Image Classification is a solid task to benchmark modern architectures and methodologies in the domain of computer vision. Now let's briefly discuss two types of Image Classification, depending on the complexity of the classification task at hand. Single-label classification is the most common classification task in supervised Image Classification.
