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 >

Tumor Tracking: How a Neural Network Compares Brain MRIs In a Flash

Binge-watching three seasons of “The Office” can make you feel as if your brain has turned into mush. But in actuality, the brain is always pretty mushy and malleable — making neurosurgery even more difficult than it sounds. To gauge their success, brain surgeons compare MRI scans taken before and after the procedure to determine Read article >

Living the Meme: AI as Funny as Humans for Generating Image Captions

It’s possible to get grad-school credit for writing memes. At least if you use deep learning to do it. Just ask Lawrence Peirson. The 23-year-old is pursuing a theoretical astrophysics Ph.D. at Stanford, but decided to enroll in a couple AI courses this year. He and classmate E. Meltem Tolunay came up with a neural Read article >
