9 Artificial Intelligence Startups in Medical Imaging

  • Just a few days ago, an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm named Libratus beat four professional poker players at a no-limit Texas Hold ‘Em tournament played out over 20 days.
  • The AI algorithm did exceptionally well and was utilizing strategies that humans had never used before.
  • It’s no secret that AI is now performing certain medical imaging tasks better than human doctors.
  • Pundits say “well, people will always trust a human doctor over an AI” and the answer we’d have to that is “not if the AI is going to give a more accurate answer “.
  • It’s only a matter of time before every X-ray machine is connected to the cloud and one human doctor per hospital puts his hand on your shoulder when he reads you the output from the AI algorithm.

You don’t have to be a gambler to appreciate the complexities of the card game Texas Hold ‘Em. It involves a strategy that needs to evolve based on the players around the table, it takes a certain amount of intuition, and it doesn’t require the player to win every hand. Just a few days ago, an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm named Libratus beat four professional poker players at a no-limit Texas Hold ‘Em tournament played out over 20 days.
If you have even the slightest understanding of how to write code, you would realize that it is impossible to actually code a software program to do that with such “imperfect information”. The AI algorithm did exceptionally well and was utilizing strategies that humans had never used before. Professional poker players are in no danger of losing their jobs, but the incredible capabilities of what AI is mastering these days should make everyone wonder just how safe their jobs actually are.
Let’s take the $3 billion medical imaging market. It’s no secret that AI is now performing certain medical imaging tasks better than human doctors. Pundits say “well, people will always trust a human doctor over an AI” and the answer we’d have to that is “not if the AI is going to give a more accurate answer “. It’s only a matter of time before every X-ray machine is connected to the cloud and one human doctor per hospital puts his hand on your shoulder when he reads you the output from the AI algorithm. Kind of like this:

Garry Kasparov: Why the world should embrace AI  #ai

  • Not at all, says chess grandmaster and former World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov.
  • Kasparov has direct experience of being humbled by a machine, so it’s perhaps surprising that he has a pro-AI outlook.
  • Since then Kasparov has gone on to become something of an AI authority: his new book, Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human Creativity Begins was released last month.
  • The BBC Click team caught up with Kasparov at this year’s Hay Festival in the UK.
  • In the video above, watch what he had to say about the inevitability of AI’s rise – and why it could actually be a revolution that will help humans work even better.

The chess grandmaster, who once saw his skills outstripped by artificial intelligence, explains why it’s time to welcome the era of smart machines.

AI Is So Hot, Even Freelancers Are in Demand — ADTmag

#AI Is So Hot, Even Freelancers Are in Demand -- ADTmag

  • One might not normally equate AI development — which can involve complicated, cutting-edge technologies such as cognitive computing, machine learning, deep learning and so on in long-term initiatives — as something suitable for freelance projects, but news from freelancing firm Upwork indicates that’s the case.
  • Upwork, which matches employers with freelancers, published data from its Web site that showed AI was the second-fastest-growing in-demand skill in the first quarter of the year.
  • But, among development-related skills, AI is No. 1, followed by skills such as natural language processing, C++ development, Swift development and others, with the AI-related machine learning skill also making the top 20 list.
  • “With artificial intelligence (AI) at the forefront of the conversation around what the future of work holds, it’s no surprise it is the fastest-growing tech skill and the second fastest-growing skill overall,” Upwork said in a statement last week.
  • Perhaps surprisingly, that pervasiveness didn’t show up in Upwork’s previous listing of in-demand skills for the third quarter of 2016, in which AI didn’t even place in the top 20 (though machine learning was No. 1):

Artificial intelligence is such a hot topic in software development that companies are even seeking freelancers to help out, making it the No 1. sought-after tech skill in Upwork’s latest quarterly report.
