Betting on Monte Carlo: GPUs a ‘Game Changer’ for Nuking Noise in Nuclear Imaging

Andras Wirth is like many early AI researchers: His deep learning ambitions only turned into reality because of a sea change in technology. A physicist, Wirth wanted to run Monte Carlo algorithms to make leaping advances in nuclear imaging, which was previously computationally impossible without massive supercomputers. A decade ago, his breakthrough came when his Read article >

Error Parer: How AI Could Help Cardiologists Detect Heart Defects Without Skipping a Beat

Nearly a third of physicians will be sued at least once in their careers — most commonly for an error in diagnosis. Medical errors are also the third-leading cause of death in the United States, according to a study by Johns Hopkins Medicine. Deep learning has the potential to help doctors cut down on diagnostic Read article >
