With a Few Twists and Turns, Rubik’s Cube May Unlock a Breakthrough in AI

An iconic puzzle from the 1980s — the Rubik’s Cube — is being used to bridge a very contemporary gap between deep learning and advanced mathematics. Pierre Baldi, the computer science professor overseeing the effort by a team of researchers at the University of California, Irvine, described this gap as the greatest conundrum facing AI 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 >

How Virtual Drug Discovery Tools Could Even the Playing Field Between Big Pharma and Small Biotech

While AI can lift competition and productivity, it also can act as a great leveler, putting smaller players on the same footing as goliaths. Take pharmaceutical research, for example. Large companies have the budget and resources to physically test millions of drug candidates, giving them an advantage over startups and researchers. But smaller labs can Read article >

Making Ultrasounds Ultra-Speedy with Deep Learning

Abdominal ultrasound tests for organ abnormalities haven’t changed much in the past decade, with a doctor moving a wand over the patient’s abdomen to gaze at blurry images. But the process could get accelerated by a thousand times with improved accuracy, based on deep learning work by U.S. researchers. Tests typically take around half an Read article >

Crowning Achievement: Using Adversarial Networks to Create Customized Dental Caps

It wasn’t long ago that dental crowns were produced on assembly lines, with rows of workers engaged in the physical effort of building and shaping them. To make that process faster, more precise and, ultimately, less expensive, dental product maker Glidewell Laboratories has been building a deep learning environment for designing and manufacturing crowns, also Read article >

Out of the Bone Age: AI Modernizes 60-Year-Old Test for Assessing Kids’ Growth

Doctors Alexander Bilbily and Mark Cicero spent years training to be radiologists. But the two believe their biggest impact will be outside their medical offices. Bilbily and Cicero are founders of 16 Bit, a Toronto-based startup that intends to reinvent radiology with GPU-accelerated deep learning. The 18-month-old company recently took a big step in that Read article >
