Artificial Intelligence more like the doctor

Artificial intelligence (AI) is an important innovation in diagnostics, because it can quickly learn to recognize abnormalities that a doctor would also label as a disease. But the way that these systems work is often opaque, and doctors do have a better “overall picture” when they make the diagnosis. In a new publication, researchers from Read more about Artificial Intelligence more like the doctor[…]

Behavioral science perspectives on an alternative Internet

Polarization, conspiracy theories, fake news: What people see on the Internet is largely determined by the opaque algorithms of just a few corporations. That’s a worrying development for democratic societies. But online environments could be designed in ways that promote autonomy and transparency, thereby fostering the positive potential of the Internet. A team of researchers Read more about Behavioral science perspectives on an alternative Internet[…]

Faster calculation method for next-gen augmented reality devices

Researchers from Tokyo Metropolitan University have developed a new way of calculating simple holograms for heads-up displays (HUDs) and near-eye displays (NEDs). The method is up to 56 times faster than conventional algorithms and does not require power-hungry graphics processing units (GPUs), running on normal computing cores like those found in PCs. This opens the Read more about Faster calculation method for next-gen augmented reality devices[…]

Digital technologies for city planning processes

For Dr. Fabian Dembski, who works at the intersection of architecture, city planning, and computational science, cities are more than just the places we live. They function like living organisms, growing and changing over time. From this perspective, decisions made in city planning can either improve or degrade the health of urban spaces. As cities Read more about Digital technologies for city planning processes[…]

Teaching the computer to teach

Intelligent tutoring systems have been shown to be effective in helping to teach certain subjects, such as algebra or grammar, but creating these computerized systems is difficult and laborious. Now, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have shown they can rapidly build them by, in effect, teaching the computer to teach. Using a new method that Read more about Teaching the computer to teach[…]

Artificial Intelligence to help dentists

In order to plan a dental implant operation and the implant size and position, dentists need to know the exact location of the mandibular canal, a canal located in both sides of the lower jaw that contains the alveolar nerve. The lower jaw is an anatomically complex structure and medical experts use X-ray and computer Read more about Artificial Intelligence to help dentists[…]

Augmented reality may assist cardiologists plan and perform complex procedures

Augmented reality (AR), a technology that superimposes computer-generated information on a user’s view of the real world, offers a new platform to help physicians better visualize complex medical data, particularly before and during medical procedures. A new self-contained AR device aims to provide an immersive AR experience in which surgeons can interactively explore data in Read more about Augmented reality may assist cardiologists plan and perform complex procedures[…]

Any IoT device may become vulnerable to thieves

Rice University engineers have one-upped their own technique to increase security for the “internet of things.” In truth, their upping is far greater than one. Kaiyuan Yang, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at Rice’s Brown School of Engineering, and graduate student Yan He have introduced a technique to make security more than Read more about Any IoT device may become vulnerable to thieves[…]

Level Up Communication with Holographic Techniques

Hologram techniques are already used in our everyday life. A hologram sticker to prevent from counterfeiting money, Augmented Reality navigation projected in front mirror of a car to guide directions, and Virtual Reality game that allows a user to play in a virtual world with a feeling of live are just a few examples to Read more about Level Up Communication with Holographic Techniques[…]
