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…

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…

NASA and Google Use Image Recognition to Discover New Worlds

It’s said there are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand in all the earth’s deserts and beaches—10 times more, by some estimates. So, imagine the plight of planet hunters, who must sort through images of countless stellar bodies to find telltale images of alien worlds. However, by using neural-network-based technology…

The Battle for AI Chips in Self-Driving Cars

For decades, Silicon Valley semiconductor rivals Intel and AMD have fought it out in the PC microprocessor business. However, two recent developments illustrate how the battleground for these firms has spread to AI chips, specifically the market for semiconductors used in self-driving cars. Intel in September announced its chips are being used in the newest…
