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 >

Counting Craters: Come On, Come On, Look a Little Closer — at Solar System History

The moon has captured humans’ imaginations for thousands of years — but an astronomical number of questions remain about its history, and the history of our solar system. Some of the answers lie in the craters that pockmark the moon’s surface. And with deep learning, scientists are able to see these craters more clearly than Read article >

How Deep Learning Is Dispelling the Clouds Hanging Over Climate Models

Global climate projections don’t always agree on how much the climate will warm in coming decades. Some project temperature rises of three or more degrees Celsius by the year 2100. Others predict a 1.5 degree shift. The primary reason for this variation may be surprising: clouds. “Most of the uncertainties we have — not all, Read article >

How Virtual Drug Discovery Tools Could Even the Playing Field Between Big Pharma and Small Biotech

While AI can lift competition and productivity, it also can act as a great leveler, putting smaller players on the same footing as goliaths. Take pharmaceutical research, for example. Large companies have the budget and resources to physically test millions of drug candidates, giving them an advantage over startups and researchers. But smaller labs can Read article >
