Developing AI that thinks exactly like humans: New research

Creating human-like AI requires more than just replicating human behavior; technology must also be able to analyses information, or “think” like humans, if it is to be completely trusted. The University of Glasgow’s School of Psychology and Neuroscience led new research published in the journal Patterns that uses 3D modelling to analyses the way Deep Neural Networks—part of the broader family of machine learning—process information, to visualize how their data processing fits that of humans. This new effort is intended to pave the path for the development of more trustworthy…

Research used data mining tools combat covid 19 misinformation

Computer scientists at UC Riverside are working on tools to assist track and monitor COVID-19 symptoms, as well as sort through disinformation about the condition on social media. Using Google Trends data, a team led by Vagelis Papalexakis, an associate professor in the Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering, and Jia Chen, an assistant professor of teaching, created an algorithm that identified three COVID-19 symptoms that were distinct from the flu: Ageusia (loss of taste function of the tongue), shortness of breath, and anosmia (loss of smell) are all…

AI technique to transform stained tissue into special stains : New research

UCLA researchers created a deep learning-based approach that may be used to reduce the requirement for human histotechnologists to generate unique stains by computationally converting existing pictures of H&E stained tissue into special stains. This AI-based technique was demonstrated by generating a full panel of special stains used for kidney tissue, namely Periodic acid–Schiff (PAS), Jones silver stain, and Masson’s Trichrome; all of these special stains were computationally transformed from existing images of H&E stained tissue biopsies using specialised deep neural networks. The researchers used this panel of unique stains…
