Artificial networks learn to smell like the brain

Using machine learning, a computer model can teach itself to smell in just a few minutes. When it does, researchers have found, it builds a neural network that closely mimics the olfactory circuits that animal brains use to process odors. Animals from fruit flies to humans all use essentially the...

The Pentagon Aims to Predict Enemy’s Actions Through AI

The U.S. Department of Defense is looking to interconnect and deploy AI systems that give it a leg-up over would-be enemies. As part of the Pentagon’s Global Information Dominance Experiments (GIDE), the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM) have carried out a series of deployments of a trifecta of interlinked AIs – codenamed Cosmos, Gaia, and Lattice. Working together, the aim of these systems is to process gargantuan amounts of data in real-time in several scenarios (including armed deployments), and aim to preempt actions from hostile actors.

UCI otolaryngology professor and other experts say AI can transform hearing healthcare and research

Irvine, Calif., Oct. 18, 2021 – In a paper published online in the journal Nature Machine Intelligence, experts from the UK and US are calling for artificial intelligence to be applied to advancing research and developing new therapies to meet the growing global demand for hearing care. In its latest report on deafness and hearing loss, WHO projects that by 2050, nearly 2.5 billion people will experience some degree of hearing loss, with 700 million requiring rehabilitation. The majority of those affected do not receive treatment and for those who do, the care is inadequate. “Hearing loss is a huge problem and we believe that AI can provide the solution,” says senior author Fan-Gang Zeng, otolaryngology professor in the UCI School of Medicine and director of the Center for Hearing Research. “There’s an urgent need to leverage existing technologies and develop new AI tools to improve the diagnosis and treatment of many common conditions and more effectively deliver hearing care worldwide.”

KubeFATE on VMware Cloud Foundation with Tanzu

The evolving landscape of data collection challenges the traditional Artificial Intelligence (AI) processing methods as worldwide data are increasingly in isolated islands. Likewise, data privacy and security regulations impose a significant burden of compliance to collect and use this data. Federated learning has emerged as a distributed learning paradigm for collaboration between enterprises to solve isolated data problems while addressing the critical issue of data privacy and data governance.
