An organization’s ability to quickly detect and respond to anomalies is critical to success in a digitally transforming culture. Google Cloud customers can strengthen this ability by using rich artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) capabilities in conjunction with an enterprise-class streaming analytics platform. We refer to this combination of fast data and advanced analytics as real-time AI. There are …

The Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI) today announced six inaugural recipients of the Hoffman-Yee Research Grant Program, a multiyear initiative to invest in research that leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to address real-world problems. The projects were selected for their boldness, ingenuity and potential for transformative impact. The grantees comprise interdisciplinary teams of faculty members, postdoctoral …

Cloud computing provides the power and speed needed for Machine Learning (ML), and allows you to easily scale up and down. However, this also means that costs may spin out of control if you don’t plan ahead, which is especially fraught now, given that businesses are particularly cost conscious. To use Google Cloud effectively for …

PyTorch is helping to power a new generation of AI-enhanced farming machines. For farmers, weeds pose a very real threat to the health of crops at a time when global population growth is raising food demand while also making resources such as land and water increasingly scarce. Seeking solutions to helping farmers produce more food with fewer …

In June, OpenAI unveiled the largest language model in the world, a text-generating tool called GPT-3 that can write creative fiction, translate legalese into plain English, and answer obscure trivia questions. It’s the latest feat of intelligence achieved by deep learning, a machine learning method patterned after the way neurons in the brain process and store information. But it …

A Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory team cultured rodent-derived neurons on microelectrode arrays and allowed the cultures to form networks, supplementing them with astrocytes and oligodendrocytes — cell types that play a critical role in neuronal health and function. Pictured is an immunofluorescence image of a complex culture, showing neurons (stained red), astrocytes (cyan) and oligodendrocytes (green). …

The AI Foundation, which ambitiously hopes to develop “ethical” AI agents that can be trained to complete tasks, today closed a $17 million funding round. A spokesperson said the funds will be used to scale the company’s platform, which allows people to create a digital persona that mirrors their own. As the pandemic makes virtual meetups …

When we think of artificial intelligence (AI) going rogue, prime examples from the movies include HAL 9000 from 2001: Space Odyssey and Skynet from The Terminator, which were mainframe computers that reacted to the real-world problems in unexpected ways. From industrial manufacturing to autonomous vehicles, machine learning models are becoming increasingly embedded in our lives. …

Business intelligence workflows at any organization can help the business make better decisions, like where to expand your company and how to most effectively deploy your resources. My work as a data analyst, open data advocate, and former lead of the Google Cloud Public Datasets Program has given me a broad view into how data teams develop …

In recent years, entire industries have popped up that rely on the delicate interplay between human workers and automated software. Companies like Facebook work to keep hateful and violent content off their platforms using a combination of automated filtering and human moderators. In the medical field, researchers at MIT and elsewhere have used machine learning to help …
