Artificial intelligence news: Brain-based AI discovers 'remarkable' antibiotic

#artificialintelligence

The MIT team first used the deep learning model to screen a library of 6,000 molecules for those which may be effective against E. coli. The search detected halicin, which the authors tested against a number of cultured bacterial strains, discovering the molecule "displays bactericidal activity against a wide phylogenetic spectrum of pathogens including Mycobacterium tuberculosis and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae," the authors wrote. The researchers also found halicin kills C. difficile and a "pan-resistant" infection in mouse models. In a subsequent screen of more than 107 million molecules from the ZINC15 database provided by the University of California, San Francisco, the AI tool identified eight molecules with structures distinct from known antibiotics but which might have potent anti-bacterial properties. Professor Jacob Durrant of the University of Pittsburgh, a drug design researcher who was not part of the study, told The Guardian: "The work really is remarkable.


Streaming Machine Learning with Tiered Storage

Both approaches have their pros and cons. The blog post Machine Learning and Real-Time Analytics in Apache Kafka Applications and the Kafka Summit presentation Event-Driven Model Serving: Stream Processing vs. RPC with Kafka and TensorFlow discuss this in detail. There are more and more applications where the analytic model is directly embedded into the event streaming application, making it robust, decoupled, and optimized for performance and latency. The model can be loaded into the application when starting it up (e.g., using the TensorFlow Java API). Model management (including versioning) depends on your build pipeline and DevOps strategy. For example, new models can be embedded into a new Kubernetes pod which simply replaces the old pod. Another commonly used option is to send newly trained models (or just the updated weights or hyperparameters) as a Kafka message to a Kafka topic.


AI in Medicine: 3 Applications for Healthcare Chatbots Lionbridge AI

#artificialintelligence

There is a lot of research being done on the implementation of AI in medicine. In fact, healthcare chatbots are becoming more and more common. As chatbot technology improves our experiences with self-driving cars and virtual help desks, it's also improving health services through improved data entry, more detailed analytics, and better self-diagnosis. But exactly how can a chatbot improve your workplace? And what role does machine learning play in the process?

Best NLP Research of 2019

#artificialintelligence

Natural language processing (NLP) is one of the most important technologies to arise in recent years. Specifically, 2019 has been a big year for NLP with the introduction of the revolutionary BERT language representation model. There are a large variety of underlying tasks and machine learning models powering NLP applications. Recently, deep learning approaches have obtained very high performance across many different NLP tasks. Convolutional Neural Network (CNNs) are typically associated with computer vision, but more recently CNNs have been applied to problems in NLP.

In this special guest feature, Claus Jepsen, Deputy CTO at Unit4, AI has risen as a main focus point for its ability to accelerate processes and help organizations remain competitive in today's unpredictable landscape. However, the benefits of AI go far beyond improved business operations and its potential to improve the internal workplace experience is often overlooked. Claus is a technology expert who has been fascinated by the micro-computer revolution ever since he received a Tandy TRS model 1 at the age of 14. Since then, Claus has spent the last few decades developing and architecting software solutions, most recently at Unit4, where he is leading the ERP vendor's focus on enabling the post-modern enterprise. At Unit4, Claus is building cloud-based, super-scalable solutions and bringing innovative technologies such as AI, chatbots, and predictive analytics to ERP.
