Machine learning looks for useful data in U.S. thunderstorm reports

[ad_1] A thunderstorm’s shelf cloud approaches the Iowa State campus. Credit: Bill Gallus Bill Gallus has been known to chase a summer storm or two. But he didn’t have to go after this one. On July 17, 2019, a thunderstorm approached the Iowa State University campus. Gallus, a professor of geological and atmospheric sciences, headed […]

Machine learning and its radical application to severe weather prediction

Machine learning can help us predict landslides caused by climate change

[ad_1] Christoph Mertz, the principal project scientist at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute, started taking pictures of the hills overlooking Pittsburgh’s West End on his smartphone. “Every day, for months, I was collecting images of these hillsides,” Mertz said. “I wanted to see if I could use these pictures as a way to predict the […]

Novel math could bring machine learning to the next level

[ad_1] The new approach allows artificial intelligence to learn to recognize transformed images much faster. Credit: Diogo Matias A team of Italian mathematicians, including a neuroscientist from the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown (CCU), in Lisbon, Portugal, has shown that artificial vision machines can learn to recognize complex images more quickly by using a mathematical […]

A deep learning technique for context-aware emotion recognition

[ad_1] Intuition of CAER-Net for untrimmed videos, as in (a) conventional methods that leverage the facial regions only, as in (b), often fail to recognize emotion. Unlike these methods, CAER-Net focuses on both face and attentive context regions, as seen in (c). Credit: Lee et al. A team of researchers at Yonsei University and École […]

Using deep learning to predict parameters of batteries on electric vehicles

[ad_1] A flow chart of how the technique used by the researchers preprocesses vehicle and meteorological data. Credit: Hong et al. The batteries used to power electric vehicles have several key characterizing parameters, including voltage, temperature, and state of change (SOC). As battery faults are associated with abnormal fluctuations in these parameters, effectively predicting them […]

Deep learning enables scientists to identify cancer cells in blood in milliseconds

[ad_1] Yueqin Li Jalali Lab/UCLA Researchers at UCLA and NantWorks have developed an artificial intelligence-powered device that detects cancer cells in a few milliseconds—hundreds of times faster than previous methods. With that speed, the invention could make it possible to extract cancer cells from blood immediately after they are detected, which could in turn help […]
