Lung Cancer Detection AI Outperforms Human Radiologists

In partnership with Northwestern Medicine, Google researchers created an AI system that detects lung cancer from CT scans better than well-trained humans. The model was trained using more than 42,000 CT scans taken from 15,000 patients during the National Institutes of Health (NIH) study conducted in 2002. Compared to six expert radiologists, when analyzing these CT scans, the model proved to detect cancer five percent more often, with an eleven percent reduction in false positives. https://venturebeat.com/2019/05/20/googles-lung-cancer-detection-ai-outperforms-6-human-radiologists/

A Custom Post-Mastectomy Bra for Cancer Survivors

Having an idea to create a custom bra for women who have had a mastectomy, Lisa Marks combined technology with the craft of handmade lace. Firstly, the AI scans the wearer to produce a pattern of a lace that is as symmetrical as possible. Then, the craftspeople use the scanning result to handcraft the lace. The bra does not use underwire, which tends to hurt post-surgery sensitive skin. http://www.lisamarks.com/work#/parametric-lace-1/

A new technology that identifies healthy embryos

Life Whisperer, a new technology that identifies healthy embryos, has been labelled a game changer for couples struggling to conceive. The world-first IVF technology developed in South Australia uses artificial intelligence to compare images of new embryos with those that have previously led to successful pregnancies. Currently, doctors have to rely on the naked eye, and a microscope, to determine the healthiest embryo. https://7news.com.au/news/sa/revolutionary-ivf-treatment-uses-artificial-intelligence-to-find-healthy-embryos-c-76007

Technology that can read your emotions

A vast number of tech companies are now offering “emotion analysis” products. These products are designed to analyse an individual’s face in order to determine how they are feeling. The emotion detection system is a mix between two technologies, the first is a computer vision which sees a person’s face and detects its features. The next is through AI which analyses this information to determine how this person is feeling. https://futurism.com/the-byte/emotion-detect-system-getting-job

Preventing Extinction Using Artificial Intelligence and Citizen Science

Wild Me is introducing an innovative program where citizen science and high technology are combined to fight the extinction of wildlife. Microsoft AI is the technology that uses the algorithm to distinguish the pattern of an animal’s physical appearance, for instance, skin pattern and scars. This program would not be completed without the help of citizen science and researchers who actively seek the existence of the living creatures and record them. For example, the data shows that Wild Me succeeded in identifying 10 times more whale sharks than ever recorded. https://www.wildme.org/

A new way to evaluate credit history

The fintech startup Petal, in conjunction with WebBank, is offering a credit card to the estimated 65 million people in the US who have insufficient credit history to qualify for a traditional credit card. Instead of relying on credit scores, Petal uses cashflow underwriting based on machine learning. It considers how much money consumers make, the bills they pay on a monthly basis, and trends in volatility in their income and expenses. www.americanbanker.com/news/petal-webbank-launch-card-for-credit-invisibles
