An AI breakthrough in healthcare sector

LabGenius, an AI-driven scientific research firm, is using Graphcore’s IPUs (Intelligence Processing Units) to accelerate its drug discovery efforts. LabGenius is now working on developing new cancer and inflammatory disease medicines. For its potentially life-saving work, the company blends AI, lab automation, and synthetic biology. Until now, the company’s workloads were performed on standard GPUs. LabGenius claims that switching from Cirrascale Cloud Services to Graphcore’s IPUs in cloud instances lowered model training time from one month to around two weeks. “Previously we used GPUs and it took us about a…

Where will STEM education be in next 5 years?

There were over 8.6 million STEM jobs in 2015, and that number is rising exponentially. In fact, STEM jobs have grown twice as fast than any other field in the last 10 years. However, it is projected that 2.4 million STEM jobs will be unfilled by 2025. Yet, STEM education programs have not kept pace–calling into question whether there will be enough qualified employees available to take on these new positions. Worryingly, only 16% of high school graduates are proficient in STEM and interested in pursuing a STEM career. With…

How to compete with robots?

When it comes to the future of intelligent robots, the first question people ask is often: how many jobs will they make disappear? Whatever the answer, the second question is likely to be: how can I make sure that my job is not among them? A team of EPFL roboticists and economists from the University of Lausanne just published a study in Science Robotics that answers both questions. They developed a method to calculate which of the already existing jobs are more likely to be performed by machines in the…

How to find the best AI course?

Artificial Intelligence is the world’s future. Every app and website increasingly uses AI for the majority of its features. They are used for facial recognition locks, to register and verify your security for transactions, and, of late, even put your face on various characters in gaming and non-gaming apps. Artificial Intelligence makes it all possible and more. Artificial Intelligence is a useful ability to have, especially since it was all the rage a few years ago, similar to the dot-com boom. Employers are looking for people with a wide range…

An artificial vision device for micro robots

Georgia State University (GSU) researchers have developed a ‘electric eye,‘ or artificial vision device, for micro-sized robots. The technology mimics the biochemical mechanisms that allow for vision in the natural environment by using synthetic ways. It advances prior research in colour recognition, which is a particularly tough area due to the difficulties of downscaling colour sensor devices. Traditional colour sensors take up a lot of room and aren’t very accurate when it comes to colour recognition. This was achieved through a unique vertical stacking architecture that offers a novel approach…
