AI Can Identify Rare Genetic Disorders by The Shape of Someone’s Face

Yaron Gurovich and his team at a biotechnology firm, FDNA in Boston, built a neural network to look at the gestalt – or overall impression – of faces and return a list of the 10 genetic syndromes a person is most likely to have. They trained the neural network, called DeepGestalt, on 17,000 images correctly labelled to correspond to more than 200 genetic syndromes. Gurovich and his team also tested the AI’s ability to distinguish between different genetic mutations that that can lead to the same syndrome. As the system makes its assessments, the facial regions that were most helpful in the determination are highlighted and made available for doctors to view. This helps them to understand the relationships between genetic make-up and physical appearance. Read More

AI Powered Autonomous Director Camera.

Shenzhen company, Remo Technology is launching an AI shooter that can stand in for a cinematographer: the Obsbot Tail. The Obsbot Tail is a groundbreaking camera that makes sophisticated filming techniques and filming complex movements readily accessible to anyone. The Obsbot Tail’s machine learning algorithms do more than smooth out pans and zooms. Driven by a power-efficient HiSilicon Hi3559A chip, they’re able to home in on subjects in low light, recognize gestures that trigger camera functions, and automatically frame shots of moving people. Alternatively, it can switch between one of six filming modes — including a mode that frames a person’s upper body. For even greater creative freedom, there’s Remo’s remote-controlled wheeled accessory, which can autonomously follow a subject around or follow a preplanned route. Read More

Artificial Intelligence Tool Used to Catch People Who Lie to The Police

British scientists have developed a new computer program that can spot if someone has lied to police about being robbed. The groundbreaking software analyses the wording of a victim's statement in order to identify telltale signs of fake reports. Spanish police, who have been using the tool, found it was successful in more than 80% of cases helping them to identify 64 false reports in just one week. Developed by experts at Cardiff University, VeriPol, uses a combination of automatic text analysis and AI to recognize when somebody has been lying or exaggerating to the police. Using algorithms, the machine can carefully analyze various features in the text, such as adjectives, acronyms, verbs, nouns, punctuation marks and numbers. The team behind the technology believe it could help police forces save valuable time and effort in investigating fake crimes and will also help deter people from filing false reports in the first place.

AI Will Stop You from Sharing Your Netflix Password with Friends

A London based company named Synamedia which intends to empower Pay TV operators and video streaming websites is planning to launch an AI-based service to crack down on password sharing. The service dubbed Credentials Sharing Insights will keep a check on casual password sharing as well as criminal enterprises who want to mint money by reselling Pay TV login credentials. Synamedia’s Credential Sharing Insights service evaluates users’ streaming habits including their physical location and usage pattern to train an AI-based system. The system would, then, rate the users between 1 and 10, where 1 indicates that the user is likely not sharing the password and 10 represents a user who has a high probability of sharing passwords with someone.

AI-powered Noise-Cancelling Headphones to Tune Out Specific Types of Noise

Jabra has announced the Elite 85h headphones at CES in Las Vegas. While the over-ear-design looks like a fatter version of the very well-reviewed Jabra Move headphones, the new active noise-cancelling feature sounds intriguing. It apparently uses AI to drown out sound. Using technology from the German AI company, audEERING, the Elite 85h can detect over 6,000 sound characteristics and filter out the noise more specifically. According to Jabra, that means the device can know when a loud train is coming down the tracks and specifically tunes out the loud train sound. Read More

AI Experiment for Anti-Terror Investigations

The National Police Agency (NPA) of Japan, is planning to experiment the use of AI in anti-terrorism and criminal investigations. The experiments would involve using the characteristics of past attacks in Europe to train AI to identify terrorists in crowded areas and introduce AI systems to analyze surveillance videos in criminal investigations. The NPA plans to conduct experiments in three areas: identifying suspicious people and objects targeting large events; determining the model of automobiles; and analyzing suspicious financial transactions. The new system would use past attacks to teach AI the signs of an impending attack and the characteristics of terrorist behavior. In the midst of large crowds, the system would need to automatically detect people exhibiting unusual behavior, such as repeatedly visiting a certain location or staying in one place, and suspicious objects that are abandoned for long periods. After detecting something, the system would issue a warning, so police officers could assess the situation, such as to determine whether the person in question is armed. Read More

Scientists Are Building a Quantum Computer That “Acts Like a Brain”

A new research project aims to harness the power of quantum computers to build a new type of neural network — work the researchers say could usher in the next generation of artificial intelligence. A neural network is a type of machine learning algorithm loosely modeled on a biological brain, which learns from examples in order to deal with new inputs. Quantum computers take advantage of subatomic particles that can exist in more than one state at a time to circumvent the limitations of old-fashioned binary computers. By combining the two, Hartmann, a professor at Heriot-Watt University who’s leading the research, believes, his team will be able to jump-start a new era in AI research that could manage extraordinarily complex problems like directing traffic flow for an entire city in real-time.
