1. Scaling Streams with Google

We’re excited to announce that the team behind Streams—our mobile app that supports doctors and nurses to deliver faster, better care to patients—will be joining Google. One of the reasons for joining forces with Google in 2014 was the opportunity to use Google’s scale and experience in building billion-user products to bring our breakthroughs more rapidly to the wider world.

Over the past three years we’ve built a team of experts in what it takes to deploy clinical tools in practice – engineers, clinicians, translational researchers and more. Read More

1. Current and Future State of AI and Machine Learning

AI – and machine learning in partcular – are set to have transformative effects on the way we work, learn and interact with others. In fact, in a recent 451 Research survey of enterprise tech decision makers, 97% of respondents believe AI will have between a slight and significant impact on society in the next two years, with 71% believing it to have a significant or moderate impact. In this webinar, Research Vice President Nick Patience of 451 Research will discuss the use cases, business benefits and barriers to adoption being felt by enterprises around the world, based on his most recent survey.

2. Washington Needs to Adopt AI Soon; Millions of Dollars at Stake

By U. Will Hurd, R-Texas

Since I recently held a series of congressional hearings on artificial intelligence (AI), I’ve been asking constituents, friends, and strangers what’s the first thing that comes to mind when I say the phrase “artificial intelligence. Having talked to government agencies about their engagement with AI and spoken with folks in the private sector about the challenges and opportunities AI brings, I’ve learned we are far from a HAL or Ava scenario becoming reality.

1. The quirky ways AI researchers gather data to feed their algorithms

Data is the oil that fuels AI development, and it gives us many of the advances we take for granted: YouTube captions, Spotify music recommendations, those creepy ads that follow you around the Internet.

SPANGLISH

Among the papers on multilingual NLP this year, Microsoft presented one that focused on processing “code-mixed language”—text or speech that switches fluidly between two languages.

The researchers started with Spanglish (Spanish and English), but they lacked enough Spanglish text to train the machine. Read More

1. Reframing AI Levels for Self-Driving Cars: Bifurcation of Autonomy

By Lance Eliot, the AI Trends Insider

The emergence of Level 3 self-driving cars is going to endanger the advent of AI self-driving cars. Indeed, a white paper by the company Velodyne LiDAR entitled “A Safety-First Approach to Developing and Marketing Driver Assistance Methodology” was distributed at the Summit and it essentially asserted that it might be timely to consider reframing Level 2 and Level 3 of AI self-driving cars. A Level 5 self-driving car is one that is being driven by the AI and there is no human driver involved. Read More

1. An AI physicist can derive the natural laws of imagined universes

As a student, Galileo famously observed a lamp swinging in Pisa Cathedral and timed its swing against his pulse.

In recent years, AI systems have begun to find interesting patterns in data themselves and even derived certain laws of physics as a result. These guys have developed an AI system that copies Galileo’s approach and some of the other tricks that physicists have learned over the centuries. Read More
