Manufacturers, medical device companies and the general public will soon have access to powerful AI-driven 3-D printing software. 3-D printing is often touted as the future of manufacturing. It allows us to directly build objects from computer-generated designs, meaning industry can manufacture customized products in-house, without outsourcing parts. But 3-D… Continue Reading Making 3-D printing smarter with machine learning | PrintFixer

An AI model developed at MIT and Qatar Computing Research Institute uses only satellite imagery to automatically tag road features in digital maps. This innovation could improve GPS navigation, especially in countries with limited map data. Showing drivers more details about their routes can often help them navigate in unfamiliar… Continue Reading MIT’s AI System helps to improve GPS navigation in places with limited map data | RoadTagger

A book is made of wood. But it is not a tree. The dead cells have been repurposed to serve another need. Now a team of scientists has repurposed living cells—scraped from frog embryos—and assembled them into entirely new life-forms. These millimeter-wide “xenobots” can move toward a target, perhaps pick… Continue Reading Xenobots – World’s First Living Robots created using Super Computer and Frog Cells

Tracking sugar in the blood is crucial for both healthy individuals and diabetic patients. Current methods to measure glucose requires needles and repeated fingerpicks over the day. Fingerpicks can often be painful, deterring patient compliance. A new technique developed by researchers at the University of Warwick uses the latest findings… Continue Reading AI can detect low-glucose levels via ECG without fingerpick test

An automated machine-learning model developed by MIT researchers significantly outperforms human Wall Street analysts in predicting quarterly business sales. Knowing a company’s true sales can help determine its value. Investors, for instance, often employ financial analysts to predict a company’s upcoming earnings using various public data, computational tools, and their… Continue Reading AI beats Wall Street Experts in predicting Business Sales

Online shoppers typically string together a few words to search for the product they want, but in a world with millions of products and shoppers, the task of matching those unspecific words to the right product is one of the biggest challenges in information retrieval. Using a divide-and-conquer approach that… Continue Reading Researchers report breakthrough in ‘distributed deep learning’

Cambridge Union is the 200-year-old debating society in Cambridge, England. It has played host to world leaders and famous arguments over politics and culture. For the first time, Cambrdige Union allowed a non-human to participate in the debate at 150-year-old Debating Chamber that once hosted British prime minister Margaret Thatcher,… Continue Reading IBM’s AI “Project Debater” argues with Humans at Cambridge Union

Scientists from the Case Western Reserve University have developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system which can now determine which lung-cancer patients will benefit from expensive immunotherapy. They’re doing it by teaching a computer to find previously unseen changes in patterns in CT scans taken when the lung cancer is first… Continue Reading Using artificial intelligence (AI) to determine whether immunotherapy is working

In today’s factories and warehouses, robots navigate pretty easily across open layouts. But they have a much harder time winding through narrow spaces to carry out tasks such as reaching for a product at the back of a cluttered shelf, or snaking around a car’s engine parts to unscrew an… Continue Reading Flexible yet sturdy robot is designed to “grow” like a plant

Lightning is one of the most unpredictable phenomena in nature. It regularly kills people and animals and sets fire to homes and forests. It keeps aircraft grounded and damages power lines, wind turbines and solar-panel installations. However, little is known about what triggers lightning, and there is no simple technology… Continue Reading Using AI to predict where and when lightning will strike
