The FDA has been approving its fair share of AI-powered medical technology, but its latest might be particularly helpful if you ever have a nasty fall. The agency has greenlit Imagen's OsteoDetect, an AI-based diagnostic tool that can quickly detect distal radius wrist fractures. Its machine learning algorithm studies 2D X-rays for the telltale signs of fractures and marks them for closer study. It's not a replacement for doctors or clinicians, the FDA stressed -- rather, it's to improve their detection and get the right treatment that much sooner. The approval came relatively quickly by using the De Novo premarket review pathway, which streamlines the process for products with "low to moderate risk."


NAB tackles 'hundreds' of machine learning projects

#artificialintelligence

NAB has found "hundreds" of use cases across the bank for machine learning and analytics technology and is in the process of standing them up. Speaking at the AWS summit in Singapore last month, executive general manager of the bank's program management office, Kyle McNamara, provided extra detail on initiatives also spoken about at the AWS Sydney summit. In Sydney, NAB revealed it is standing up an AWS-backed elastic data lake called discovery cloud, which will act as the foundation for its machine learning and analytics push. In Singapore, however, NAB revealed the initial scope of its analytics efforts. "At NAB there are literally hundreds of use cases in marketing, risk, operations and compliance that can and are starting to leverage analytics and machine learning," McNamara said.


Machine Learning Classification Algorithms using MATLAB

#artificialintelligence

This course is for you If you are being fascinated by the field of Machine Learning? This course is designed to cover one of the most interesting areas of machine learning called classification. I will take you step-by-step in this course and will first cover the basics of MATLAB. Following that we will look into the details of how to use different machine learning algorithms using MATLAB. Specifically, we will be looking at the MATLAB toolbox called statistic and machine learning toolbox.We will implement some of the most commonly used classification algorithms such as K-Nearest Neighbor, Naive Bayes, Discriminant Analysis, Decision Tress, Support Vector Machines, Error Correcting Ouput Codes and Ensembles.

The way NASA's shared services office used to process grants was manual, full of paper and required the scanning of documents. Many would consider that approach to be "low-value" work -- the kind the Trump administration wants agencies to stop doing.

Helsinki University Offers World's First Free Online Artificial Intelligence Course Asgardia Space News

#artificialintelligence

Seeing as artificial intelligence has a fairly significant role in almost everyone's life these days, it's only fair that everyone should also have the chance to learn all about how AI functions. Therefore, Helsinki University in Finland is providing the world's first online artificial intelligence course aimed at beginners, as reported by Engadget. Fortunately, anyone with access to the internet can enroll and it's even free! The course only takes around 30 hours to finish, and the hope is that it might help people get to know and form opinions on artificial intelligence. Knowledge that will be useful as the technology becomes more widespread.


Will Artificial Intelligence Destroy Humanity?

#artificialintelligence

An old Chinese proverb says, "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second-best time is now." This seems to be the thinking of very smart people when it comes to doing something about protecting humanity from the possible dangers of artificial intelligence (AI). Sure, it might be 20, 50 or even 100 years before AI becomes more intelligent than humans, posing an existential problem for today's sapiens. Many luminaries like Elon Musk, Bill Gates and the late Stephen Hawking have warned that failing to prepare for this eventuality will guarantee our demise in some decades to come.


Here Are Three Factors That Accelerate The Rise Of Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Thanks to the rise of AI, Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) are in demand. What was once considered to be a part of high-end gaming PCs and workstations is now the most sought-after processor in the public cloud. Unlike CPUs, GPUs come with thousands of cores that speed up the ML training process. Even for running a trained model for inferencing, GPUs are becoming essential. Going forward, some form of a GPU will be there wherever there is a CPU.


Why there is a need for thoughtful Artificial Intelligence - The Financial Express

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become a ubiquitous part of our daily lives. However, like every great discovery throughout history, AI too comes with ethical considerations, for its judicious use to benefit society as a whole. We are still only scratching the surface of what AI can do and its potential impact. There are six core ethical principles which in my view should be followed --fairness, reliability and safety, privacy and security, inclusivity, transparency and accountability. AI systems should treat everyone in a fair and balanced manner and should not differentiate between groups of people.
