UCSF rsearch collaborators, funded by Facebook, have been able to successfully develop a “speech neuroprosthesis”, which allows a man with severe speech loss to communicate in full sentences in real-time, by converting signals from the motor cortex in his brain to the vocal tract, directly into text on a screen.
When one is in a hospital, they may hear many appreciative remarks, such as “Thank you, Doctor” or “Thank you, Nurse”, & sometimes expressions of gratitude for the technology available. Although there is a substantial amount of appreciation for medical equipment such as MRI scanners, adjustable hospital beds & surgical robots, we often do not realize the formidable software behind all these workings. Processing, acquiring & storing our data safely, accurately & efficiently… is what NVIDIA Clara excels at.
The rise of dangerous military AI is ever growing and a government-appointed panel in the United States has said in a draft report to Congress that it is America’s “moral imperative” to keep pursuing the development of AI-powered weaponry. This article will explore both the technological and ethical arguments to this dilemma. Intrigued? Read on to find out….
With the advent of artificial intelligence, “big data”, and machine learning, we are moving toward the rapid expansion of the use of these tools in the daily life of physicians, making each patient unique, as well as leading radiology toward the concept of a multidisciplinary approach and precision medicine. In this article, we will present the main aspects of the computational tools currently available for analysis of images and the principles of such analysis, together with the main terms and concepts involved, as well as examining the impact that the development of artificial intelligence has had on radiology and diagnostic imaging in mammography.
Online retailers have one aim in mind when designing their website: how can I maximise the amount of web traffic actually buying/investing in my products? That’s where Evolv comes in. We sit down with Steve Bamberger, COO of Evolv, to find out what digital growth optimisation is all about…
AI has verily allowed us to make many advancements in the field of medicine. One of them being operating minimally invasive surgery inside incisions as small as your fingertips. Facilitating procedures like this is the ‘Da Vinci Robotic- Assisted Surgical System’, demonstrating cognitive computing of high accuracy and precision.
We already know how AI is used in facial recognition systems, helping you unlock your phone using just your face. But now, facial recognition can work even with face-masks. But how? Read on to find out….
More than four months have passed since the lockdown rules were implemented, though you may have applied a litre of hand sanitizer or gone through an uncountable number of face masks by now, we just want to be safe. And knowing if we have the disease can potentially save the lives of our friends and family. Let's look at the AI that helps us combat COVID-19.
The Dubai Health Authority has recently deployed eight AI-powered robots into its hospitals and clinics to sterilise facilities independent of human intervention. This coincides with the reopening of the city’s regular diagnostic and therapeutic services as new cases of COVID-19 are being reduced, and allows more thorough and efficient disinfection while offering greater protection to human staff.
Read on to discover the various ways in which artificial intelligence intends to leave a formidable effect on healthcare - from reducing risks in healthcare to giving doctors valuable AI-enabled tools - and to finally equip medicine with the technological standards that reflect our digital world.
There are 367,167 new cases of cancer each year according to Cancer Research UK and roughly 18 million people have it globally. Yet, there is a treatment that contributes to 40% of cures and is highly effective in reducing the risk of cancer progressing onto further stages. Let's have a look at radiotherapy and what AI is doing to help out.
Microsoft’s Azure Cognitive Services have just announced the newest feature to their Text Analytics. Now they’ve made the AI function assist in the healthcare industry. Find out how this monumental development may potentially change the course of the healthcare field forever.
