4 Ways IBM Watson's Artificial Intelligence Is Changing Healthcare

#artificialintelligence

Some say that artificial intelligence (AI) will radically change healthcare in the future. But that prediction overlooks an important detail: AI is already significantly changing healthcare. IBM (NYSE:IBM) Watson Health general manager Deborah DiSanzo spoke at the annual J. P. Morgan Healthcare Conference on Wednesday. She provided an update on the progress that IBM Watson, the AI system famous for beating Jeopardy! DiSanzo highlighted four areas where AI is making a big difference today.

Dehyping Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) at InterConnect 2017

#artificialintelligence

Dr. Sabine Hauert, President and Co-Founder of Robohub.org and Assistant Professor in Robotics at the University of Bristol, provided the InterConnect 2017 audience with an insightful (and interactive) discussion about robotics – highlighting the need for balanced media and communications around robotics and artificial intelligence. As a member of the Royal Society's Working Group on Machine Learning, Dr. Hauert is an expert in science communication and a frequent speaker on the future of robotics. In her talk, Hauert explains how robots can be game changers, but not in the way we think. Robots are not going to replace humans, they are going to make their jobs much more humane. Difficult, demeaning, demanding, dangerous, dull – these are the jobs robots will be taking.


A Cheap and Easy Blood Test Could Catch Cancer Early

MIT Technology Review

A simple-to-take test that tells if you have a tumor lurking, and even where it is in your body, is a lot closer to reality--and may cost only $500. The new test, developed at Johns Hopkins University, looks for signs of eight common types of cancer. It requires only a blood sample and may prove inexpensive enough for doctors to give during a routine physical. "The idea is this test would make its way into the public and we could set up screening centers," says Nickolas Papadopoulos, one of the Johns Hopkins researchers behind the test. "That's why it has to be cheap and noninvasive."


Google Has Made It Simple for Anyone to Tap Into Its Image Recognition AI

#artificialintelligence

Google released a new AI tool on Wednesday designed to let anyone train its machine learning systems on a photo dataset of their choosing. The software is called Cloud AutoML Vision. In an accompanying blog post, the chief scientist of Google's Cloud AI division explains how the software can help users without machine learning backgrounds harness artificial intelligence. All hype aside, training the AI does appear to be surprisingly simple. First, you'll need a ton of tagged images.

AI Could Save Heart And Cancer Patients

#artificialintelligence

Many industries are moving towards the artificial intelligence and when it comes to healthcare it is no different. In technical terms, AI is nothing but a science of developing computer systems that could do anything without the need of humans. These computer systems work on the algorithms and data. AI is transforming the healthcare industry by storm. It is helping everyone such as doctors, patients, and nurses because of its unimaginable potential.

Why our education system can't keep up with artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

It's not a wave, it's a tsunami. In less than five years, artificial intelligence -- AI, as it's commonly known -- has gone from the stuff of science fiction to the forefront of the news, from scientific journals to the strategic plans of the world's biggest companies. For Laurent Alexandre, surgeon, graduate of France's National School of Administration (ENA), entrepreneur, futurologist and author of the recent book La Guerre des intelligences (The War of Intelligences), this isn't just a trend. It's a coming sea change, one that will disrupt entire parts of our lives by competing with what, until now, was seen as a fundamentally human characteristic: Our intelligence. At the same time, he acknowledges that AI -- at least for now -- is "still utterly unintelligent".


Blog: Artificial intelligence and the lighter side of CES

#artificialintelligence

When attending CES, you never entirely get used to seeing technology concepts come to life, which once were only envisioned in science fiction books or movies. One of the hottest topics is that of artificial intelligence (A.I.) as we are now at crossroads of development that makes the advancements more prevalent. It is difficult for us to separate decades of fiction from reality when it comes to A.I., especially when much of the conversations still seem theoretical. I can tell you that this year's CES has presented some of the most defined applications related to A.I. when it comes to image recognition and deep learning. AiPoly initially developed an artificial intelligence image recognition application for the vision impaired and blind.
