DeepMind AI Will Be Able To Predict Acute Kidney Injuries 48 Hours Before It Happens

Thanks to computers being able to do thousands of calculations and processes in a short amount of time, it has made our lives a lot more efficient. This is especially true in the medical sector, where thanks to the use of AI, we have seen how it could potentially save lives as it can pick up on diseases and illness before a regular human doctor can.


This AI Tool Can Detect Text Written By Another AI

The development of AI has advanced far enough where certain pieces of news can actually be written up by a computer without any input from humans. This can be dangerous because it also means that since computers don’t need sleep, it could be weaponized where it could be used to churn out fake news after fake news.


Steam’s New AI Tool Makes Game Recommendations Smarter

A lot of how recommendation systems work is based on things you’ve interacted with in the past. For example, if you’re browsing cameras on Amazon, chances are the next time you visit, you’ll start seeing recommendations for cameras or camera accessories. However, Valve is hoping to improve on its recommendation system by using AI.


Researchers Create AI That Can Create And Detect Fake Images

In the past, spotting fake images wasn’t too difficult due to technology back then not being quite as good. These days, not only has the technique involved in making fake images become better, but so has the tech, where the rise of DeepFakes has us a bit worried for the future.

Engineer Creates AI-Powered Cat Flap That Stops Your Cat From Bringing Home Dead Animals

The problem with owning cats is that for whatever reason, cats love bringing home dead animals they have killed. It can be a bit gross and also unsanitary, but this is something that cats do and we can’t really do much about it, or can we? That’s what Amazon product maanger Ben Hamm did when he designed an AI-powered cat flap for his home.


2016’s Viral ‘Mannequin Challenge’ Videos Are Being Used To Train Google’s AI

You might recall a couple of years ago when the “mannequin challenge” was making its rounds on social media. For those who are unfamiliar, it is where a group of people in a room hold weird/funny poses while the person with the camera walks around, making it seem like everyone is a mannequin in a store.


This Photo Editing App Uses AI To Remove People From Photos

There are a ton of beautiful and scenic spots in the world that many people go to take photos of. However, most touristy places tend to be pretty crowded and filled with tourists, all of whom are trying to take the same photo. This usually results in a photo that is less than ideal due to the sheer number of people in them which can distract from the photo.


AI Used To Study Brains To Help Teachers Improve On Their Lessons

We all learn in different ways, some are visual learners, some are more book learners, some are naturally gifted, while others might take longer to understand a concept. This is why teachers have such a hard job because what they try to teach their students might not necessarily be understood by all of them.


Researchers Want To Use AI To Create The Perfect Pizza

Is cooking an art form or is it science? There are plenty of chefs out there who cook based on feel and look, while there are others who have utilized science to their advantage, resulting in spectacular creations such as molecular gastronomy, but it seems that over at MIT, researchers seem to believe that cooking is largely a science.


Robots Are Now Coming For Dishwashing Jobs

When it comes to robots replacing human jobs, the most obvious jobs that can be taken over are the ones involving manual labor and also jobs that are repetitive. The assembly line is the perfect example, where robots can be used to take over mundane and repetitive tasks without getting tired or making mistakes.


Adobe’s AI Can Spot Facial Manipulation In Photoshop

While using a tool like Photoshop to digitally manipulate an image is not exactly new, thanks to the advancement of technology, it has become a lot easier to do so. It has also become disturbingly realistic, where AI has been used to create photos and videos of people doing or saying things that are complete fabrications.


MIT Develops Algorithm That Lets Robots Predicts How Humans Move

There are some who believe that AI combined with robots could mean the end of humanity, where one days there will be a robot uprising where they will take over the Earth. It looks like we could be inching towards that future, where researchers at MIT have developed an algorithm that could help robots predict how humans move.


Microsoft’s AI Diagnosing Blood Test Is Only A Few Years Away From Launch

A lot about a person’s health can be gleaned through their blood, which is why blood tests are usually ordered whenever you go for a health screen or a general checkup. However, it seems that the humble blood test could be getting a huge boost in the near future, thanks to the efforts between Microsoft and Adaptive Biotechnologies.


This Algorithm Can Create Accurate Portraits Based On What You Sound Like

How often have you spoken to someone over the phone only to discover that they don’t look like how you imagined when you meet them in real life? Turns out that AI might actually have a better grasp of predicting what people look like based on how they sound, thanks to the work of researchers.
