Top 10 APIs for Natural Language Processing

Natural Language Processing, or NLP, is a branch of artificial intelligence that focuses on how computers learn, analyze and understand human languages. NLP software can give applications the ability to understand nuances of human language, such as semantics, linguistics, and definitions of words and phrases. Developers wishing to create applications that better understand humans need

Turkish researchers 3D print artificial cornea for transplantation

A team of researchers from Marmara University, Turkey have 3D printed an artificial cornea suitable for transplantation. With the help of an aluminum mold, an FFF 3D printer was used to fabricate a PVA-chitosan corneal construct with the light bending properties of the real thing. Preliminary biostability studies revealed that the composite structures were compatible

New algorithm uses artificial intelligence to help manage type 1 diabetes

Researchers and physicians at Oregon Health & Science University, using artificial intelligence and automated monitoring, have designed a method to help people with type 1 diabetes better manage their glucose levels. The research was published in the journal Nature Metabolism. “Our system design is unique,” said lead author Nichole Tyler, an M.D.-Ph.D. student in the

Artificial pieces of brain use light to communicate with real neurons

Researchers have created a way for artificial neuronal networks to communicate with biological neuronal networks. The new system converts artificial electrical spiking signals to a visual pattern than is then used to entrain the real neurons via optogenetic stimulation of the network. This advance will be important for future neuroprosthetic devices that replace damages neurons

Artificial intelligence is energy-hungry — new hardware could curb its appetite

To just solve a puzzle or play a game, artificial intelligence can require software running on thousands of computers. That could be the energy that three nuclear plants produce in one hour. A team of engineers has created hardware that can learn skills using a type of AI that currently runs on software platforms. Sharing

Elections: Early warning system to fight disinformation online

Researchers at the University of Notre Dame are using artificial intelligence to develop an early warning system that will identify manipulated images, deepfake videos and disinformation online. The project is an effort to combat the rise of coordinated social media campaigns to incite violence, sew discord and threaten the integrity of democratic elections. The scalable,

Smartable AI Provides Near Real-Time COVID-19 Stats Via AI-Powered API

The API provides data collected from credible sources that is segmented by country or state and updated hourly. Sources accessed for data include government websites, wikipedia pages, news reports, Johns Hopkins University

Predicting reaction results: Machines learn chemistry

Everyday life without artificial intelligence is barely conceivable in today’s world. Countless applications in areas such as autonomous driving, foreign language translations or medical diagnostics have found their way into our lives. In chemical research, too, great efforts are being made to apply artificial intelligence (AI), also known as machine learning, effectively. These technologies have

Deep learning rethink overcomes major obstacle in AI industry

Rice University computer scientists have overcome a major obstacle in the burgeoning artificial intelligence industry by showing it is possible to speed up deep learning technology without specialized acceleration hardware like graphics processing units (GPUs). Computer scientists from Rice, supported by collaborators from Intel, will present their results today at the Austin Convention Center as

Robot uses artificial intelligence and imaging to draw blood

Rutgers engineers have created a tabletop device that combines a robot, artificial intelligence and near-infrared and ultrasound imaging to draw blood or insert catheters to deliver fluids and drugs. Their most recent research results, published in the journal Nature Machine Intelligence, suggest that autonomous systems like the image-guided robotic device could outperform people on some
