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 >

Home Helper: Startup’s Robot Can Tidy Up a Messy House

The robot rolls up to a towel, drops an arm to grasp it and then scoots along to release it in a laundry bin. It zips up to pens scattered across the floor to grab and then place them into a box. Take a break, Roomba. Preferred Networks has been developing this home cleaning robot Read article >

AI and Clinicians a ‘Winning Combination,’ Healthcare Luminary Eric Topol Says at GTC

Deep learning is putting the “care” back in healthcare. “It used to be we just talked about deep sequencing. Now we talk about deep everything in medicine,” healthcare luminary Eric Topol told a packed audience Tuesday morning at the 10th annual GPU Technology Conference, in San Jose. With advances in AI and healthcare, he said, Read article >

Heart of the Matter: How AI Can Create Personalized Prosthetic Heart Valves

Heart-valve replacements can restore normal blood flow for patients with aortic valvular disease — but only when the prosthesis is a good fit. A drawback of prosthetic heart valves is that they’re manufactured in fixed sizes. In a presentation Monday at the GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, Iowa State professor Adarsh Krishnamurthy and graduate Read article >

How an Early Bet on Digital Enables a Healthcare Network’s Suite of AI Applications

Few predicted in the mid-’90s that the deep learning revolution was coming. But Geisinger, a healthcare system serving people across Pennsylvania and New Jersey, made an early bet on digital health records. And that gave it a major advantage when implementing AI two decades later. Geisinger adopted electronic health records in 1996 and began digitally Read article >
