New algorithm uses deep learning to diagnose heart arrhythmias

Stanford computer scientists believe they have developed an algorithm that can diagnose heart arrhythmias with cardiologist-level accuracy. The new deep learning algorithm sifts through hours of data to find irregular heartbeats. Typically, arrhythmias are detected with an electrocardiogram, but doctors often prescribe a wearable ECG to continuously monitor a patient’s heartbeat. This wearable device results … continue reading

Developer trains artificial neural network to play Mario Kart 64

Holiday breaks are a good time to catch up on relaxing, reading, or maybe indulging in some video gaming. Kevin Hughes did just that over his winter break, only it wasn’t he who was playing the games: It was an artificial neural network he trained using TensorFlow. Hughes is a senior developer at Shopify, and … continue reading

University of Toronto researchers train AI system to sing Christmas songs

Tired of the same old overplayed holiday songs? Step aside, Bing Crosby, because this artificial intelligence system is debuting its new (yet terribly creepy) Christmas carol. Researchers from the University of Toronto developed an AI system that took a holiday image and generated a Christmas song. Calling it a song is an overstatement though, since … continue reading

MIT CSAIL brings reasoning to machine learning

Machine learning is a hot topic in the software industry right now. More and more companies are taking advantage of this artificial intelligence technique to train machines on their data and make predictions. Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Laboratory (CSAIL) want to take it a step further by revealing how a machine makes … continue reading
