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…

Microsoft and IBM work with the Vatican for facial recognition regulation

Facial recognition regulation - The Vatican

Pope Francis has raised concerns about the use of AI technologies without appropriate controls. The Vatican has teamed up with tech giants Microsoft and IBM in a call for facial recognition regulation. They are aiming to ethically develop and control intrusive technologies which also include artificial intelligence (AI). The three parties agree that AI should be developed in a way that it will maintain a respect for privacy. The three groups have said that artificial intelligence technology should be respectful of privacy, should function reliably in the absence of bias,…
