New artificial intelligence tool may spot Alzheimer’s sooner

Artificial intelligence tool - Alzheimer's Disease

This language processing tool could help to provide earlier diagnoses mental degenerative diseases. Researchers at Boston University have developed a new artificial intelligence tool that they say has the potential to help with earlier diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and other mental degenerative diseases. The AI software can be used for detecting cognitive impairments and spot Alzheimer’s earlier. The researchers published their findings in The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association. Within their paper, they indicated that their artificial intelligence tool uses a machine learning computational model that can use audio recordings…

Stroke detecting and preventing AI technology wins national award

AI Technology - Medical Research

The tech was developed by a PhD grad conducting medical research following the death of her grandfather. PhD grad from Montreal Canada, Karina Gasbarrino has won a Mitacs Social Entrepreneurship Award for her development of AI technology that can both prevent and detect strokes. The artificial intelligence Gasbarrino developed was the result of a decade of research. Gasbarrino’s own grandfather died of a stroke more than ten years ago, at which time she decided to research the subject. Throughout that time, she worked to create the AI technology that would…

Facebook AI spots deep fakes and their sources

Deep Fakes - facebook logo in eye - digital

The system was developed by the company with a team from Michigan State university. Facebook and a team from Michigan State University have announced that they have developed a new software system that can identified deep fakes as well as where they came from. Deep fakes are videos that have been edited using AI in some way, appearing increasingly realistic. Deep fakes are becoming increasingly difficult for humans to tell what is real when they are viewed online, such as when they are shared on Facebook. According to the researchers…

Tech giants are bracing themselves against a future of deepfake videos

Deepfake videos - filming

Technology researchers are scrambling to find tools to combat fake, AI generated media. Many of the tech giants across the country and around the world are working to prepare for the onslaught of deepfake videos that are certain to be on their way. The goal is to develop the technology needed to spot fake artificial intelligence (A.I.) generated video before it has the chance to spread. Google has been working on this type of project for months, at least, but the trend is growing. Google researchers worked with dozens of…
