Shifting Ground: AI Analyzes Volcanoes for Signs of Eruption

Seattle, Naples and Tokyo are separated by thousands of miles, but they share a common neighbor: potentially devastating volcanoes. Around the world, about 800 million people live within 100 kilometers of a volcano, posing a threat to lives and livelihoods. Even eruptions that occur in remote areas can spread ash and disrupt public health, agriculture Read article >

Deep Learning Shakes Up Seismology with Quake Early Warning System

Most people can’t detect an earthquake until the ground under their feet is already shaking or sliding, leaving little time to prepare or take shelter. Scientists are trying to short circuit that surprise using the critical time window during the spread of seismic waves out from a temblor’s hypocenter — an earthquake’s underground point of Read article >

AI in the Sky: Startup Uses Satellite Imagery to Assess Hurricane, Fire Damage

Technology can’t stop a hurricane in its tracks — but it can make it easier to rebuild in the wake of one. Following a natural disaster, responders rush to provide aid and restore infrastructure, relying on limited information to make critical decisions about where resources should be deployed. It can be challenging to analyze these Read article >

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 >

Munich Startup Uses AI to Take Medical Imaging to Another Dimension

Medical imaging provides a window into the human body, allowing us to see under the skin. But to really understand what’s going on inside our bodies, doctors need 3D imagery. And there’s no time this would be more helpful than during surgery. Now, ImFusion, a Munich-based startup and NVIDIA Inception program member, is taking medical Read article >
