A team from Feinstein Institutes for Research thinks AI could be key to helping patients get more rest while reducing the burden on healthcare staff. Everyone knows how important adequate sleep is for recovery. However, patients in pain – or just insomniacs like me – can struggle to get the sleep they need. “Rest is […]

Autonomous functions for robots, such as spontaneity, are highly sought after. Many control mechanisms for autonomous robots are inspired by the functions of animals, including humans. Roboticists often design robot behaviors using predefined modules and control methodologies, which makes them task-specific, limiting their flexibility. Researchers offer an alternative machine learning-based method for designing spontaneous behaviors […]

Movie ratings can determine a movie’s appeal to consumers and the size of its potential audience. Thus, they have an impact on a film’s bottom line. Typically, humans do the tedious task of manually rating a movie based on viewing the movie and making decisions on the presence of violence, drug abuse and sexual content. […]

COVID-19 has undeniably altered billions of lives across the globe. While many are longing for a “return to normal,” many aspects of society will never quite return to the way things were and the shock has permanently altered the economic landscape. Communities, schools, businesses and global infrastructures will still have to adapt to a post-COVID world once a vaccine is widely available and administered.

In this respect, a machine learning technique called multi-agent reinforcement learning (MARL) has demonstrated success, primarily in two-team games such as Go, DOTA 2, StarCraft, hide-and-seek, and flag capture. But there’s a much messier human world than sports. That’s because people face […]

"Our AI system tracks people's behaviour patterns rather than their purchases, and the more you shop the more the AI knows about what kinds of products you like," he says. "The AI module is designed not only to do the obvious stuff, but it learns as it goes along and becomes anticipatory. It can start to build a picture of how likely you are to try a different brand, or to buy chocolate on a Saturday."
PS isn’t waterproof. The navigation system depends on radio waves, which break down rapidly in liquids, including seawater. To track undersea objects like drones or whales, researchers rely on acoustic signaling. But devices that generate and send sound usually require batteries — bulky, short-lived batteries that need regular changing. Could we do without them? MIT […]
New ways of computing are coming to the fore as development in conventional computing slows.

Digital, consisting of two states, on-off […]
The Raxio Group (Raxio) has acquired land at the ICT Park, in the outskirts of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to build the country’s first private uptime certified Tier III colocation data centre. The site, purchased through Raxio’s fully owned subsidiary in Ethiopia, Raxio Data Centre PLC (Raxio Ethiopia) is set to be commission in the third quarter of 2021. Once completed, Raxio Ethiopia will offer its customers an optimised environment for their IT equipment in a state of the art, modular facility, fully equipped with leading technology, security, AC/DC power compatibility and redundancy.
LG’s wearable air purifier allows users to take in clean, filtered air with its Dual Fans and patented Respiratory Sensor. Meanwhile, the Respiratory Sensor detects the cycle and volume of the wearer’s breath and adjusts the dual three-speed fans accordingly. The fans automatically speed up to assist air intake and slow down to reduce resistance when exhaling to make breathing effortless.

As long as humans have built machines, we’ve feared the day they could destroy us. Stephen Hawking famously warned that AI could spell an end to civilization. But to many AI researchers, these conversations feel unmoored. It’s not that they don’t fear AI running amok—it’s that they see it already happening, just not in the ways most people would expect. AI is now screening job candidates, diagnosing disease, and identifying criminal suspects. But instead of making these decisions more efficient or fair, it’s often perpetuating the biases of the humans on whose decisions it was trained.
Researchers from Pfizer and IBM claim to have developed a technique for machine learning that can predict Alzheimer’s disease years before symptoms develop. The team says their strategy achieved 71 percent specificity when evaluated against a group of cognitively stable people by evaluating small samples of language data collected from clinical verbal studies.  Alzheimer’s disease […]

Intel is not disclosing any financial terms of the deal, nor who from the startup will join Intel. Cnvrg, co-founded by Yochay Ettun (CEO) and Leah Forkosh Kolben, had raised $8 million from investors that include Hanaco Venture Capital and Jerusalem Venture Partners, and PitchBook estimates that it was valued at around $17 million in its last round.
It’s a strategy Quek said is fundamental to the company’s mission of inspiring “every person in the world to start selling and buying.” To help with that, Carousell now draws heavily on artificial intelligence (AI) to speed up the selling process. Image recognition, for instance, will automatically identify items and apply the appropriate categories and tags. Ultimately, Carousell wants to reduce listing times from 30 seconds to just three. “We’re doing a lot of things around AI,” said Quek. “We want to make selling even simpler, so today you can already take a photo, your category will be suggested, your title will be suggested, your price will be suggested.”
