AI Could Help Increase the IVF Success Rate

AI Could Help Increase the IVF Success Rate

More than 8 million people have been born worldwide with the help of in vitro fertilization since 1978. In IVF, an egg is fertilized by sperm in the lab; the resulting clump of cells is transferred into a patient’s uterus.Although IVF techniques have advanced significantly in recent decades, the average success rate is still fairly low: around 45 percent. The percentage steadily declines as women age; a 40-year-old woman has a likely success rate of about 12 percent, according to Pregnancy…

Critical Issues in Remote Monitoring: Data Capture and Quality

Critical Issues in Remote Monitoring: Data Capture and Quality

As more healthcare activities take place from home, passive continuous monitoring solutions and new technology such as artificial intelligence will be critical to communications between providers and patients. In addition, new solutions that offer overnight monitoring will play a crucial role in helping to fill the gaps, particularly in assessing patient deterioration or changes in health conditions. The pandemic has forever changed the trajectory of healthcare and specifically virtual care.

A First: An AI System Has Been Named An Inventor

A First: An AI System Has Been Named An Inventor

The South African patent office made history in July when it issued a patent that listed an artificial intelligence system as the inventor.The patent is for a food container that uses fractal designs to create pits and bulges in its sides. Designed for the packaging industry, the new configuration allows containers to fit more tightly together so they can be transported better. The shape also makes it easier for robotic arms to pick up the containers.The patent’s owner, AI pioneer Stephen…

Deep Learning Can’t be Trusted Brain Modelling Pioneer Says

Deep Learning Can’t be Trusted Brain Modelling Pioneer Says

During the past 20 years, deep learning has come to dominate artificial intelligence research and applications through a series of useful commercial applications. But underneath the dazzle are some deep-rooted problems that threaten the technology’s ascension. The inability of a typical deep learning program to perform well on more than one task, for example, severely limits application of the technology to specific tasks in rigidly controlled environments. More seriously, it has been claimed that deep learning is untrustworthy because it is…

AI Is Helping to Stop Animal Poaching and Food Insecurity

AI Is Helping to Stop Animal Poaching and Food Insecurity

When Fei Fang was a graduate student she was introduced to game theory—mathematical models that describe strategic interactions among rational decision-makers. The IEEE member knew she had found her calling. She has combined the modelling technique with machine learning to thwart terrorist attacks and reduce animal poaching.
For Fang’s work in the field, she was named one of IEEE Intelligent Systems magazine’s “AI’s 10 to Watch in 2020.”
Fang, an assistant professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon, is now…
