Google and NOAA team up for AI weather forecasting research

AI weather forecasting - meteorology

The goal is to be able to develop better predictions in the face of climate change. Google and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have recently signed a deal to partner up on AI weather forecasting for the next three years. This will focus on using artificial intelligence and machine learning from the tech giant. Its goal is to enhance the NOAA’s weather forecasting, environmental monitoring and climate research. The announcement of the new three-year partnership was made jointly last week. At first, the research under the AI weather…

AI beauty technology to revolutionize personalized skin care

AI beauty - woman with cell phone and skin care products

Advancements in new device tech uses algorithms to extract information about a user’s face. AI beauty devices are becoming more technologically advanced using algorithms similar to those originally developed for medical purposes. Algorithms can process photos and deduct vital medical information about a patient’s wellness. The technology scans images seeking and evaluating certain specific criteria that has to do with the health of a picture’s subject. What researchers are now trying to determine is what AI beauty algorithms will be capable of offering. They are seeking to know how much…

An artificial intelligence system cannot invent something, says US Patent Office ruling

Artificial intelligence system - Robot with Computer

Patents are granted only to “natural persons” and will not be issued to AI-made creations. The US Patent Office has published a new ruling saying that its patents will not be granted to inventions from an artificial intelligence system. The ruling means that the power of AI will be limited and fears of “Westworld” may be assuaged. The US Patent Office published the ruling as it denied two patents filed on behalf of an artificial intelligence system called DABUS. The office stated that it will grant patents only to “natural…

MIT machine learning model predicts COVID-19 spike with eased quarantines

Machine learning model - disease spread - man wearing mask

The calculation is based on publicly available data combined with outbreak epidemiological equations. MIT has developed a new machine learning model mean to predict the rate and pattern of spread of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus. It predicts that if quarantine regulations are lightened, the disease will spread much faster. The machine learning model was based on established epidemiological equations about outbreaks combined with publicly available data as well as neural network-based inference. When it was applied to the coronavirus spread data from late January to early March, its predictions proved…
