Self-driving care

Self-driving #healthcare  #AI #selfdrivingcar MT @lumiata via @techcrunch

  • As I waved to the engineer inside and continued on my way, I started thinking about how the information and skills that self-driving vehicle systems must share represent compelling models and lessons that might be adapted to my own field — healthcare.
  • We can’t use this collective intelligence model to transform teenage brains, but can we apply it to our chronic disease burden to enhance clinical care and drive breakthroughs in delivery?
  • Incentivizing a “sharing” care model for information and insights — to move and meld information between the small practice in Mississippi treating a hypertensive patient and a doctor at a state-of-the-art academic center in Arizona treating a similar case — requires an innovation model centered around the doctor and the patient, not around legacy equipment and proprietary systems.
  • To be clear, I’m mulling disruption in the care delivery model and the way we share insight, not the practice of medicine in the U.S. as a whole.
  • By promoting the power of a collective view to incentivize new business models, leveraging a shared learning network of scalable tools and solutions centered on the doctor-patient relationship, there is a chance to have the innovations in healthcare delivery lap those I saw that morning at the crosswalk.

U.S. healthcare might learn a thing or two from the modus operandi of Google’s fleet of autonomous vehicles — the information and skills that self-driving..

Can you tell if this music was composed by artificial intelligence?

Can you tell if this music was composed by artificial intelligence?  #technology

  • How small business can play a big role in humanitarian crises
  • The results showed that more than half the listeners attributed DeepBach-generated harmonies to Bach, while music by Bach was correctly identified by 75 percent of the listeners. “
  • The article is published in collaboration with Futurism .
  • Music is mathematical, and composers like Bach often made music that followed a defined, step-like flow that is almost algorithmic.
  • Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach is known to have written many chorale cantatas, polyphonic hymns based on Lutheran texts.

Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach is known to have written many chorale cantatas, polyphonic hymns based on Lutheran texts. Each is fairly simple, featuring a single melody accompanied by three harmonies, so Gaetan Hadjeres and Francois Pachet from Sony Computer Science Laboratories in Paris thought it would be interesting to see if a machine could create chorale cantatas indistinguishable from Bach’s.

Tech giants open virtual worlds to bevy of AI programs : Nature News & Comment

Tech giants open virtual worlds to bevy of #AI programs

  • About 100 research labs are probably using the 3D world Malmo, made by Microsoft Research, to investigate artificial intelligence.
  • Tech giants open virtual worlds to bevy of AI programs
  • The company initially created the world to train its own AI programs.
  • Virtual worlds are also particularly useful for developing AIs that are destined to eventually operate as physical robots, says Hofmann, because such environments are cheaper to customize, and faster and safer to practise in than the real world.
  • Now that the environment is open, the company hopes that other researchers will help to make the environments more challenging for the algorithms. “

Artificial-intelligence algorithms can learn a lot from playing immersive 3D video games.
