Artificial intelligence senses people through walls

X-ray vision has long seemed like a far-fetched sci-fi fantasy, but over the last decade a team led by Professor Dina Katabi from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) has continually gotten us closer to seeing through walls.

Their latest project, “RF-Pose,” uses artificial intelligence (AI) to teach wireless devices to sense people’s postures and movement, even from the other side of a wall.

The researchers use a neural network to analyze radio signals that bounce off people’s bodies, and can then create a dynamic stick figure that walks, stops, sits, and moves its limbs as the person performs those actions.

Scientists have 3D printed the most advanced artificial cornea ever using human cells

Scientists have 3D printed the thin protective film over the eye, called the cornea, using human cells — and it’s the most advanced version of an artificial cornea yet. Should the technology improve, it could help millions of people see again.

It was tricky to find the right recipe for an ink that’s thin enough to squirt through a 3D printer’s nozzle, says Che Connon, a tissue engineer at Newcastle University who was one of the creators of the artificial co…

Drama-Free Artificial Intelligence

Depending on who’s listening, the current discussion involving the growing role of Artificial Intelligence in business inspires a range of dramatically divergent emotions. There’s often fear, because of what some believe to be AI’s vaguely sci-fi vibe and dystopian possibilities. Among business people, there is also confusion, on account of the inability of most laypeople to separate AI hype from AI fact. Apprehension also looms large, usually from managers who sense that a great wave of technology disruption is about to hit them, but who feel utterly unprepared for it.  

But from our experience…

What’s missing from the Malicious Use of Artificial Intelligence report?

Only a fool would dare criticise the report “The Malicious Use of Artificial Intelligence: Forecasting, Prevention, and Mitigation,” coming as it does from such an august set of bodies — to quote: “researchers at the Future of Humanity Institute, the Center for the Study of Existential Risk, OpenAI, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Center for a New American Security, and 9 other institutions, drawing on expertise from a wide range of areas, including AI, cybersecurity, and public policy.”

Cripes, that’s quite a list. But let me at least try to summarize its 100 pages of dense text.

How Artificial Intelligence in Medicine is Improving Healthcare (and Business)

The use of AI, or artificial intelligence, in the medical field is an emerging trend that promises exponential advances in the way we diagnose and treat a multitude of health conditions. Advances in the application of medical AI technology are occurring at a lightning pace, with new developments rendering prior solutions obsolete in a matter
of months.

In this article, we’ll review some of the ways that AI technology is making the healthcare field more efficient, improving the quality of care, raising ethical concerns, and offering medical practices a competitive advantage.

Artificial Intelligence Gives Drones Abilities We’ve Only Dreamed About

George Matus was still in high school when he began raising millions for his startup, Teal. The former quad drone racer’s pitch to investors was a wish list of what he thought a drone should be. More than just an aerial camera, his quad would be freaky fast and easy to use — even fly in the rain. And, most challenging of all, Teal would think and learn. It would be a platform that developers might use for all kinds of complex applications, from counting a farmer’s cows to following a targ…

Leveraging Artificial Intelligence & GPUs for Cybersecurity

Artificial Intelligence (AI) presents a significant opportunity to solve problems previously either not easy to solve or worse, not possible to solve. The combination of AI along with today’s Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) technology provides an added boost to those leveraging sophisticated algorithms in their deep learning solutions. These sophisticated systems are able to train deep learning models and ultimately lead to predictive insights. The objective is to move from reactive to proactive and finally to predictive insights.

The breadth of opportunities that AI presents is wide, however, a significant opportunity is in the Cybersecurity space. One company leveraging…
