Strikingly accurate AI software predicts COVID-19 death rate

AI Software - Person's face with data

A Danish research team has developed artificial intelligence with 90 percent prediction accuracy. A team of researchers from the University of Copenhagen claim to have developed AI software capable of predicting a person’s risk of death from COVID-19 with 90 percent accuracy. The program was fed 3,944 Danish coronavirus patient files to build its prediction algorithms. The AI software received non-identifying information in the patient files including their health data such as underlying medical conditions. The program was then “trained” to recognize patterns in the medical histories of the patients.…

Hiring discrimination detection tool created using artificial intelligence

Hiring discrimination - Digital technology - People

This tech is able to detect these recruitment behaviors against women and visible minorities. A new AI hiring discrimination tool has been developed to help spot these employment website recruiter behaviors against women and visible minorities. The artificial intelligence system utilized supervised machine learning to analyze the behaviors. Prior research has solidly determined that several industries have significant gender and ethnic pay gaps. However, available data doesn’t make it as easy to measure the extent to which discrimination is the cause of those inequalities. The new AI hiring discrimination tool…

New AI prostate cancer testing technology precisely diagnoses through urine test

AI prostate cancer testing - lab testing equipment

Researchers have successfully used artificial intelligence to detect the presence of this disease. Scientists at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) have used AI prostate cancer testing to accurately diagnose this disease using a urine test. The artificial intelligence technology was considerably more effective than the conventional PSA test. PSA tests detect a cancer factor in blood. However, accuracy can be as low as 30 percent, and as this is one of the most common cancers in men, it is important to find improved accuracy in non-invasive tests.…

Vatican Library employs AI security strategy to keep hackers at bay

AI security - Vatican Library

The 600-year-old collection is digitizing over 80,000 manuscripts but is working to protect them. The Vatican is likely the last place that comes to mind when thinking about the latest in AI security technology. However, as the 600-year-old institution moves to digitize 80,000 manuscripts from its collection, it is turning to artificial intelligence to protect itself from hackers. The library has been using the last decade to create a digital copy of its entire collection. The idea behind digitizing its collection is to help protect the Vatican Library against the…
