  • China Beats US in AI Data and Application and Is Overtaking in Computing Power

    (Yicai Global) Sept. 4 — The United States is often seen as a leader in the field of artificial intelligence (AI).

  • China is equipped with the first three of the most important four elements that drive development of AI, namely talents, data, infrastructure and computing power, where the domestic semiconductor industry is making encouraging progress despite China’s ongoing reliance on foreign suppliers.
  • Technology giants in the US set up research and development laboratories around the world to recruit talents.
  • Though China greatly relies on foreign chip suppliers, China’s domestic enterprises are making encouraging process in the field of chips, per the latest industry research report from Goldman Sachs.
  • As to the beneficiaries of China’s domestic AI technology development, the referenced Goldman Sachs report believes that those reaping the initial bounty will be the three giants (Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent) which have unique advantages in AI thanks to their possession of massive and unique databases.

The United States is often seen as a leader in the field of artificial intelligence (AI). China, the world’s second largest economy, has now become its main competitor.

Artificial intelligence can predict Alzheimer’s disease two years before doctors can, study shows

Artificial intelligence can predict Alzheimer’s disease two years before doctors can: study

  • A computer-driven algorithm was able to accurately foresee whether or not a person would develop Alzheimer’s disease up to two years before he or she displays symptoms, according to a new study from McGill University.
  • Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia and clinical trials for drugs to combat the disease must meet a minimum 18 to 24-month run time.
  • “You want to include people who will be progressing from mild cognitive impairment to dementia in the time of the clinical trial,” Rosa-Neto said.
  • Scientists have a tough time predicting the disease on their own through amyloid (a protein that builds up and leads to cognitive damage) PET scans, especially considering that the existence of amyloids in the brain does not necessarily always lead to a dementia diagnosis.
  • The AI technology was then shown the scans of 270 new individuals who had mild cognitive impairments — 43 of whom eventually developed Alzheimer’s — from before they were diagnosed.

Artificial intelligence can pick up on symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease in brain scans long before doctors or patients.

How Watson Helped Me in My Battle Against Lung Cancer

How @IBMWatson helped me in my battle against lung #cancer:  #AI

  • My doctors at Jupiter Medical Center said it looked like an early-stage lung cancer, and I had a successful operation.
  • In my case, Watson identified an immunotherapy treatment option that is specifically designed for the small set of patients whose cancer has the same features as mine.
  • This treatment option was the same one that my doctors had identified.
  • Watson for Oncology, which my doctors at Jupiter Medical Center started using earlier this year, was able to read and understand my medical history.
  • It came up with a list of treatment options for my doctors and me to consider, based on my individual case and training at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

I’ve worn a few different hats in my life. I don’t mind being on the road, and prefer being outdoors when I can – whether it’s working in my yard,…

  • Google Trends.It’s possible Google feels some responsibility, being the first stop for many people who think they may be depressed, as it has announced a new tool to help people diagnose depression.
  • “Statistics show that those who have symptoms of depression experience an average of a 6-8 year delay in getting treatment after the onset of symptoms,” chief executive officer of NAMI, Mary Giliberti, wrote in a Google guest blog post.
  • The main aim of the tool is to help raise awareness of depression and encourage people to seek treatment.
  • “We hope that by making this information available on Google, more people will become aware of depression and seek treatment to recover and improve their quality of life,” Giliberti said.

Google is offering a new tool to help you diagnose whether or not you are depressed when you google symptoms.
