Antibiotics use in Africa: Machine learning vs. magic medicine

“I was surprised myself recently when we had a child in the consultation room and I thought ‘This looks like a bacterial infection,’” recalls Godfrey Kavishe, a doctor at the National Institute for Medical Research in Tanzania. Kavishe was a few steps away from prescribing an antibiotic — they help fight bacterial infections. Source: Antibiotics […]

The role of artificial intelligence in the fight against Covid-19

In early January of 2020, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued its first warnings about the potential spread of a flu-like pandemic. Days later, the World Health Organization notified the public of the dangers of the novel coronavirus Covid-19, and warned about the possibility of a dangerous outbreak. Source: The role of […]

Artificial Intelligence for Rapid Exclusion of COVID-19 Infection

rtificial intelligence (AI) may offer a way to accurately determine that a person is not infected with COVID-19. An international retrospective study finds that infection with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, creates subtle electrical changes in the heart.

Experts Weigh In: Pros and Cons of Machine Learning for AI Security

Artificial intelligence (AI) in cybersecurity was a popular topic at RSA’s virtual conference this year, with good reason. Many tools rely on AI, using it for incident response, detecting spam and phishing and threat hunting. However, while AI security gets the session titles, digging deeper, it is clear that machine learning (ML) is really what […]

Machine learning-based microstructure prediction during laser sintering of alumina

Scientific Reports, Published online: 21 May 2021; doi:10.1038/s41598-021-89816-x Predicting material’s microstructure under new processing conditions is essential in advanced manufacturing and materials science. This is because the material’s microstructure hugely influences the material’s properties. We demonstrate an elegant machine learning algorithm that faithfully predicts the microstructure under new conditions, without the need of knowing the […]

AI offers promise but faces barriers in drug development

Inertia is a barrier as is the traditional split between the clinical and the data-driven spheres of drug development. While smaller firms have an edge in bridging the gap, big pharma will eventually get there, said panelists at the INVEST conference session.
