How Deep Learning Can Help Doctors Navigate the Contours of Radiation Therapy

Contouring isn’t just for Kim Kardashian’s cheekbones. Doctors use a process of the same name to determine high-precision radiation therapy treatments. Once the size and shape of tumors are identified in medical images, contouring helps them design target volumes for radiation therapy. Researchers from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, in Houston, are Read article >

What’s in Your Genome? Startup Speeds DNA Analysis with GPUs

Anyone with a hundred bucks and a saliva sample can get some intriguing genetic insights by mail-order. But using DNA for research or clinical purposes requires the whole genome — which means sequencing and processing all 3 billion base pairs which reside within our chromosomes. The cost to do that has dropped dramatically over the Read article >

Sounding the Alarm: How Deep Learning Helps Doctors Detect Pediatric Sepsis

In a high-stakes environment like the intensive care unit, there are more pressing tasks for a nurse than data entry — prompting hospitals to use devices that automatically measure patients’ vital signs. These time-saving machines create far more patient data than manual entry ever could. And they present an opportunity for AI to mine the Read article >

Music to the Ears: ‘Cocktail Party’ Problem Gets a Round of AI

The classic cocktail party problem — how to filter out specific sounds from a variety of background noises — is getting a shot of AI. Human ears do a great job at deciphering sounds from a din because the brain can focus our attention on what we want to hear. Machine-based “sound source separation,” however, Read article >

ELMo’s World: Using Deep Learning to Interpret Words with Many Meanings

Bank. Fair. Duck. Out of context, each word has multiple meanings. A bank is where you keep your money or the side of a river. Fair is where you climb into a Ferris wheel or your assessment of the ride. Duck is how you avoid injury from an incoming, same-named waterfowl. Humans typically don’t have Read article >
