Artificial intelligence is evolving at a rapid pace. Incorporation of AI into industrial operations have proven to be fruitful. These new applications are opening up a wide range of opportunities. This week’s AI guide focuses on a few of the new applications of artificial intelligence.
The youngest serving state leader in the world right now, Sana Marin is living up to the expectations of the people of Finland. The Finnish govt is teaming up with the University of Helsinki, Finlands largest and oldest academic institution, and the Finland-based tech consultancy Reaktor to provide EU citizens – a free-of-charge online course in artificial intelligence, in their own languages officials said. The government has opted to give a practical understanding of AI to 1 per cent of all EU citizens through a basic online course by the end of 2021. The decision came as Finland is marking the end of its rotating presidency at the end of the year. The course covers elementary AI concepts in a practical way and doesn’t go into deeper concepts.
Intel has announced the acquisition of Israeli startup Habana for $2 billion. Over the last few years, Intel has made multiple AI acquisitions. Considering that Intel’s revenue in 2018 was over $70 billion. The price for Habana is modest and not a surprise. The acquisition of Haban is only a wide attack on the market and the company expects to generate $3.5 billion in AI-driven revenue, more than 20 percent year-over-year.
An AI technology developed by Riken Center for Advanced Intelligence Project (AIP) in Japan has successfully found features in pathology images from cancer patients. In addition, the AI system identified features related to cancer prognosis that was not previously noticed by pathologists. Combining AI predictions with Human pathologist predictions led to an even greater accuracy.
Zebra medical vision, the deep learning medical imaging analytics company announced a partnership with Depuy sythes* to bring AI opportunities, based on imaging data. The technology is planned to be introduced as part of Depuy Synthes8 VELYS Digital surgery solutions for pre-operative, operative, and post-operative patient care. “ We are thrilled to start this collaboration and have the opportunity to impact and improve orthopaedic procedures and outcomes in areas including the knee, hip etc,” says Eyal Gura Co-founder of Zebra medical vision.
A sophisticated type of artificial intelligence can outperform existing models at predicting which women are at future risk of breast cancer, according to researchers. Karin Dembrower, breast radiologist from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden and colleagues developed a risk model that relies on a deep neural network, a type of AI that can extract vast amounts of information from mammographic images.
