Talk to Me: Deep Learning Identifies Depression in Speech Patterns

“Talk therapy” is often used by psychotherapists to help patients overcome depression or anxiety through conversation. A research team at Massachusetts Institute of Technology is using deep learning to uncover what might be called “talk diagnosis” — detecting signs of depression by analyzing a patient’s speech. The research could lead to effective, and inexpensive, diagnosis Read article >

How UCSF Researchers Are Using AI on Some of Healthcare’s Toughest Problems

Hospitals produce huge volumes of medical data that, when handled with concern for privacy and security, could be used to re-examine everything from hospital administration to patient care. But this means finding careful ways to assemble this data, so it’s no longer locked in organizational silos. A research team at the University of California, San Read article >

How Deep Learning Is Aiding Preservation of Seneca and Other Endangered Languages

Linguists estimate that at least half of the world’s estimated 7,000 spoken languages will become extinct by the century’s end, due to forces ranging from globalization to cultural assimilation. Part of the challenge of documenting and revitalizing endangered languages is a lack of texts and speech recordings to work with. Seneca, a language of one Read article >

Perplexed by Texts: AI Providing Insights into What Messages Really Say

Es Lee’s first efforts to bring emotional intelligence to texting didn’t go quite as planned. He’d helped discern the romantic intent behind some texts a friend had received and figured an algorithm could more objectively detect meanings often lost on people. So he whipped up an app called Crushh that told users how much the Read article >

Scaling the Universe: How Large GPU Clusters Aid Understanding of Galaxy Formation

For centuries, scientists have marveled at telescopic imagery, theorized about much of what they see and drawn conclusions from their observations. More recently, astronomers and astrophysicists are using the computing performance of GPUs and AI to glean more from that imagery than ever. A research team at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and Princeton Read article >
