NVIDIA and ARM Take Deep Learning to the Edge

With more than 86 billion ARM processor chips shipped to date, chances are there’s an ARM-based device within arm’s reach of you right now—most likely your smartphone or tablet. In fact, ARM-powered products are nearly ubiquitous, with the diminutive, low-power processors at the heart of countless mobile, consumer and internet-of-things (IoT) devices used by people…

AI for Healthcare Prediction 03.8.18

Prognosis is Good for AI Healthcare Prediction

Doctors have a lot of questions about their patients, from the precise nature of their conditions, to the expected length of their next hospital stay, to their estimated lifespan. Luckily, there’s an algorithm for that—a new AI prediction system developed by Google that can forecast the outcome of patients’ hospital visits by improving diagnoses, enhancing…

Heart Disease AI 02.20.18

Scanning Retinas for Heart Disease with AI Prediction

Researchers have devised a deep-learning algorithm that uses AI prediction techniques to forecast cardiovascular risk based on scans of patients’ retinas. A team of researchers from Google, Verily Life Sciences and the Stanford School of Medicine trained their deep-learning algorithm using data from 284,335 patients. The algorithms were able to predict cardiovascular (CV) issues with…

AI Earthquake Warning 01.4.18

Deep Learning May Issue Earthquake Warnings

When it comes to predicting the next big earthquake to strike California’s San Andreas fault, seismologists say it’s a matter of when—not if. The big problem is knowing exactly when, with current forecasting techniques far from accurate or foolproof. However, a new deep learning prediction technology promises to provide some warning when a quake is…

Nuclear Fusion - Deep Learning 12.29.17

Deep Learning Prediction Technology and Nuclear Fusion

Since research began in the 1940s, fusion reactors have been regarded as the future of energy, potentially providing virtually unlimited quantities of cheap electricity. However, after 75 years of development, the creation of a practical reactor remains tantalizingly elusive, with fusion experiments still consuming more energy than they produce. Today, experts believe they are on…
