IBM detects skin cancer more quickly with visual machine learning

Date: January 6, 2015 Published by

As with any form of cancer, skin cancer is best diagnosed early. Skin cancer can be detected more quickly and accurately by using cognitive computing-based visual analytics, researchers at IBM Research have found, in collaboration with New York’s Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. It also uses an IBM system for analyzing medical images, called Medical Sieve, and a visual recognition and search system called Intelligent... View Article

AI2: Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s effort to map the human brain

Date: January 5, 2015 Published by

SEATTLE: Inside the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, known as AI2, everything is a gleaming architectural white. The walls are white, the furniture is white, the counters are white. The field was seen as a failure and went into eclipse.In recent years, however, AI has come roaring back as speech recognition, machine vision and self-driving cars have made progress with powerful computers, cheap sensors and...

Machine Learning Reveals Genetic Control System

Date: December 30, 2014 Published by

How do cells employ the same basic set of genetic instructions to carry out their own specialized tasks? But when interpreted using the splicing code, that mutation might be found to have a profound effect by interfering with the splicing instructions. This process is called alternative splicing, and it’s how cells create such variety out of a single genetic code. In the new study, researchers... View Article

Forecasting the Sun’s Fury: How Artificial Intelligence Can Predict Solar Flares

Date: December 26, 2014 Published by

There are two general ways to forecast solar flares: numerical models and statistical models. We’ve used machine learning algorithms to forecast solar flares using SDO’s vast data set. So far, studies have found that machine-learning algorithms forecast flares better than or, at the worst, just as well as the numerical or statistical methods. Expanding such efforts could help us provide better notice of impending solar... View Article

Machine Learning Trends from NIPS 2014

Date: December 25, 2014 Published by

I want to share three exciting trends that I saw in NIPS this year: Deep learning is the automatic construction of deep models from data. NIPS is one of the two main machine learning (ML) conferences, the other being ICML.NIPS has broad coverage of many ML sub-fields, including links to neuroscience (hence the name). Deep learning has also become more broadly applicable than just classifying... View Article

Data Experiments at Airbnb

Date: December 24, 2014 Published by

While the basic principles behind controlled experiments are relatively straightforward, using experiments in a complex online ecosystem like Airbnb during fast-paced product development can lead to a number of common pitfalls. At Airbnb we have built our own A/B testing framework to run experiments which you will be able to read more about in our upcoming blog post on the details of its implementation. The... View Article
