The YouTube originals series “The Age of A.I.” was released in December 2019. If you haven’t already seen it now could be a good time to catch up – with much of the world in enforced or voluntary isolation many of us will be stuck at home with hours to fill. Sit back and marvel at the many incredible, and often heart-warming, applications of AI.
Machine learning techniques are already playing a key role in assisting research into COVID-19. Here we provide a living document where we will add links to resources as and when we become aware of them. We hope this will be useful for AI researchers wishing to contribute their expertise to projects and collaborations.
One of the holy grails in the development of artificial intelligence (AI) is giving machines the ability to predict intent when interacting with humans.
We humans do it all the time and without even being aware of it: we observe, we listen, we use our past experience to reason about what someone is doing, why they are doing it to come up with a prediction about what they will do next.
On 16 March the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19) was released. This comprises an open-source, machine-readable collection of scholarly literature covering COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, and the Coronavirus group. This free resource contains over 29,000 relevant scholarly articles, including over 13,000 with full text.
Scientists plan to use the same technology as that used to create deepfake videos to build AI-generated medical images. The synthesised images will present data from the SCAPIS study into heart and lung disease, and will be used for research into AI solutions in healthcare.
On 26 February 2020 the White House published its first annual report on the American artificial intelligence initiative. This national initiative was launched on 11 February 2019 with the aim of creating an AI strategy. The report provides an update on progress so far and vision for the future.
Monday to Wednesday at AAAI-20 saw a multitude of technical sessions, the exhibition and posters. In addition there were a number of interesting debates, invited talks and panels. Here are some tweets from the final three days of the conference.
