Research Findings May Lead to More Explainable AI | College of Computing

Why did the frog cross the road? Well, a new artificial intelligent (AI) agent that can play the classic arcade game Frogger not only can tell you why it crossed the road, but it can justify its every move in everyday language. Developed by Georgia Tech, in collaboration with Cornell and the University of Kentucky, the Read more about Research Findings May Lead to More Explainable AI | College of Computing[…]

AI predicts hospital readmission rates from clinical notes

Electronic health records store valuable information about hospital patients, but they’re often sparse and unstructured, making them difficult for potentially labor- and time-saving AI systems to parse. Fortunately, researchers at New York University and Princeton have developed a framework that evaluates clinical notes (i.e., descriptions of symptoms, reasons for diagnoses, and radiology results) and autonomously Read more about AI predicts hospital readmission rates from clinical notes[…]

Researchers are training image-generating AI with fewer labels by letting the model infer the labels

Generative AI models have a propensity for learning complex data distributions, which is why they’re great at producing human-like speech and convincing images of burgers and faces. But training these models requires lots of labeled data, and depending on the task at hand, the necessary corpora are sometimes in short supply. The solution might lie in Read more about Researchers are training image-generating AI with fewer labels by letting the model infer the labels[…]

Google launches TensorFlow Lite 1.0 for mobile and embedded devices

Google today introduced TensorFlow Lite 1.0, its framework for developers deploying AI models on mobile and IoT devices.

Google’s DeepMind can predict wind energy income a day in advance

Wind power has become increasingly popular, but its success is limited by the fact that wind comes and goes as it pleases, making it hard for power grids to count on the renewable energy and less likely to fully embrace it. While we can’t control the wind, Google has an idea for the next best Read more about Google’s DeepMind can predict wind energy income a day in advance[…]

A step closer to self-aware machines – let the robot imagine itself

Columbia Engineering researchers have made a major advance in robotics by creating a robot that learns what it is, from scratch, with zero prior knowledge of physics, geometry, or motor dynamics. Initially the robot does not know if it is a spider, a snake, an arm–it has no clue what its shape is. After a Read more about A step closer to self-aware machines – let the robot imagine itself[…]

OK, smarty pants AI. You can beat us humans at video games. But how about real-world puzzles like Jenga? Oh, oh no

A robot built by a team of researchers at MIT in America has two prongs for fingers, sensors in its wrist, and a camera for eyes. As the AI-powered bot surveys the tower, one of its prongs is told by software to poke a block, which sends feedback to its sensor to work out how Read more about OK, smarty pants AI.

A neural network can learn to organize the world it sees into concepts and MIT has found a way to show how it’s doing it

As good as they are at causing mischief, researchers from the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab realized GANs are also a powerful tool: because they paint what they’re “thinking,” they could give humans insight into how neural networks learn and reason. This has been something the broader research community has sought for a long time—and it’s Read more about A neural network can learn to organize the world it sees into concepts and MIT has found a way to show how it’s doing it[…]

Y’know how you might look at someone and can’t help but wonder if they have a genetic disorder? We’ve taught AI to do the same

Artificial intelligence can potentially identify someone’s genetic disorders by inspecting a picture of their face, according to a paper published in Nature Medicine this week. The tech relies on the fact some genetic conditions impact not just a person’s health, mental function, and behaviour, but sometimes are accompanied with distinct facial characteristics. For example, people Read more about Y’know how you might look at someone and can’t help but wonder if they have a genetic disorder? We’ve taught AI to do the same[…]
