Iceman Returns! How Top Gun: Maverick Star Val Kilmer Was Able To Speak Again With the Help of Artificial Intelligence

There was a time when Los Angeles native Val Kilmer was one of the most sought-after screen stars in the world. Originally a stage actor, he was once the youngest person ever to be accepted into Juilliard’s Drama Division. Kilmer initially found fame through big-screen comedy roles in Real Genius and Top Secret!. Following an iconic appearance as “Iceman” opposite Tom Cruise in 1986’s Top Gun, the actor’s career really caught fire in the 90s with performances in The Doors, Tombstone, Heat and the title role in Batman: Forever.

Facebook posts may reveal individuals at risk for excessive drinking

Alcoholism can be a difficult condition to diagnose, especially in cases where individuals' drinking habits are not noticed and physical symptoms have not yet manifested. In a new study, published in Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research, co-author H. Andrew Schwartz, Ph.D., of the Department of Computer Science at Stony Brook University, and colleagues determined that the language people used in Facebook posts can identify those at risk for hazardous drinking habits and alcohol use disorders.

The Rolling Stones: Exile on Main St reviewed – archive, 1972

Relaxed and sunny, Mick Jagger went through the tracks on Exile on Main St with me the other day. The double album is about to be released (Rolling Stones records, COC 2-900). You know that the Sweet Black Angel (also the B-side of the Stones’ new single) is Angela Davis? he asked. In what sense? I said. We were set to play at home in France, he said. There was a poster of Angela on the wall, looking at us. So I wrote the song to her (or her image.) “She ain’t no singer, she ain’t no star,” Jagger sings, as the music zips and chimes behind him, celebrating the Stones’ companion song to Dylan’s George Jackson. What do you think about Angela Davis herself listening to the song? I asked. Mick ducked.

Digital biomarkers are healthcare’s next frontier

Moreover, biomarkers extracted from blood require uncomfortable blood draws, can be expensive to analyze, and again, are not always timely. Historically, continuous tracking of an individual’s vital signs meant they had to be in a hospital. But that’s not true anymore. Digital biomarkers, collected from wearable sensors or through a device, offer healthcare providers an abundance of traditional and new data to precisely monitor and even predict a patient’s disease trajectory.

AI’s role is poised to change monumentally in 2022 and beyond

First, let me address the misconception that AI is synonymous with algorithms and automation. This misconception exists because of marketing. Think about it: When was the last time you previewed a new SaaS or tech product that wasn’t “fueled by” AI? This term is becoming something like “all-natural” on food packaging: ever-present and practically meaningless.

Artificial intelligence predicts patients' race from their medical images

The miseducation of algorithms is a critical problem; when artificial intelligence mirrors unconscious thoughts, racism, and biases of the humans who generated these algorithms, it can lead to serious harm. Computer programs, for example, have wrongly flagged Black defendants as twice as likely to reoffend as someone who's white. When an AI used cost as a proxy for health needs, it falsely named Black patients as healthier than equally sick white ones, as less money was spent on them. Even AI used to write a play relied on using harmful stereotypes for casting.
