Understanding the choices and recommendations of artificial intelligence systems is crucial, especially when the stakes are high, as they are with national security issues like nuclear nonproliferation. A PNNL team is using explainable AI to further the effectiveness of AI systems.Read more
DHS S&T SVIP announces $199,950 in Phase 1 funding to Lauretta AI, LLC, a start-up based in Arlington, Massachusetts, to adapt their video analytic solution to meet TSA’s needs.Read more
Samer Hamdar, an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering at the George Washington University, is partnering with Moment AI to launch a project aimed at developing AI systems that could one day prevent health-induced traffic accidents, including those linked to stress.Read more
Doctors and healthcare workers may one day use a machine learning model, called deep learning, to guide their treatment decisions for lung cancer patients, according to a team of Penn State Great Valley researchers.Read more
The “birth dearth” of the 2008 economic recession means fewer students will graduate from high school through at least 2032, draining college enrollments and revenues. Admissions research firm, Othot, published a report analyzing how this might affect 454 colleges and universities. As an example, the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois – Chicago which are in the same region, will experience the national and regional declines differently because of where they recruit.Read more
As the COVID-19 death toll mounts and the world hangs its hopes on effective vaccines, what else can we do to save lives in this pandemic? In UniSA’s case, design world-first technology that combines engineering, drones, cameras, and artificial intelligence to monitor people’s vital health signs remotely.
In 2020 the University of South Australia joined forces with the world’s oldest commercial drone manufacturer, Draganfly Inc, to develop technology which remotely detects the key symptoms of COVID-19 – breathing and heart rates, temperature, and blood oxygen levels.
Within months, the technology had moved from drones to security cameras and kiosks, scanning vital health signs in 15 seconds and adding social distancing software to the mix.
In September 2020, Alabama State University became the first higher education institution in the world to use the technology to spot COVID-19 symptoms in its staff and students and enforce social distancing, ensuring they had one of the lRead more
Irvine, Calif., Feb. 9, 2021 — Monoclonal antibodies are showing promise for improving outcomes for COVID-19 patients, but when a hospital is already beyond capacity, administering them can be a challenge. As hospitalizations soared across California, clinicians with UCI Health created a system for delivering monoclonal antibodies that is keeping hospital beds available for patients with the greatest need.Read more
Using AI and computer automation, Technion researchers have developed a “conjecture generator” that creates mathematical conjectures, which are considered to be the starting point for developing mathematical theorems. They have already used it to generate a number of previously unknown formulas.Read more
A University of Washington team created Audeo, a system that can generate music using only visual cues of someone playing the piano.Read more
Currently, there are no methods to discern the spectrum of COVID-19’s severity and predict which children with SARS-CoV-2 exposure will develop severe illness, including MIS-C. Because of this, there is an urgent need to develop a diagnostic modality to distinguish the varying phenotypes of disease and risk stratify disease.Read more
A new, free, online course, AI Ethics: Global Perspectives, which started this week, designed for a global audience, seeks to bring together diverse perspectives from the field of ethical AI, to raise awareness and help institutions work towards more responsible use.Read more
The February edition of SLAS Technology is a special collection of articles focused on “Artificial Intelligence in Process Automation” by Guest Editor Cenk Ündey, Ph.D. (Amgen, Thousand Oaks, CA, USA).Read more
