Today, there’s more information accessible at people’s fingertips than at any point in human history. And advances in artificial intelligence will radically transform the way we use that information, with the ability to uncover new insights that can help us both in our daily lives and in the ways we are able to tackle complex …

How do you like to learn a new skill? Read books? Take a course? Try to build something? We are a small group of Customer Engineers who, with no formal background in machine learning, who decided to learn about reinforcement learning by entering Battlesnake, an online survival game where our trained agent would cut its …

Getting a quick and accurate reading of an x-ray or some other medical images can be vital to a patient’s health and might even save a life. Obtaining such an assessment depends on the availability of a skilled radiologist and, consequently, a rapid response is not always possible. For that reason, says Ruizhi (“Ray”) Liao, …

Generative adversarial networks (GANs) are a well-established AI method to create images, whether photorealistic pictures or abstract collages. However, to date these models have had an important limitation: They can typically only generate images of objects or scenes that are closely related to the training data set. A traditional GAN trained on images of cars …

The existential threat of COVID-19 has highlighted an acute need to develop working therapeutics against emerging health threats. One of the luxuries deep learning has afforded us is the ability to modify the landscape as it unfolds — so long as we can keep up with the viral threat, and access the right data. As …

Creating a good customer experience increasingly means creating a good digital experience. But metrics like pageviews and clicks offer limited insight into how much customers actually like a digital product. That’s the problem the digital optimization company Amplitude is solving. Amplitude gives companies a clearer picture into how users interact with their digital products to …

For entrepreneurial MIT students looking to put their skills to work for a greater good, the Media Arts and Sciences class MAS.664 (AI for Impact) has been a destination point. With the onset of the pandemic, that goal came into even sharper focus. Just weeks before the campus shut down in 2020, a team of …

A historic kidney transplant exchange recently took place in the Middle East, but it might never have transpired without an algorithm developed at Stanford by Itai Ashlagi, a Stanford associate professor of management science and engineering, and his graduate student Sukolsak Sakshuwong. In all, three ailing recipients received life-sustaining transplants while three healthy donors gave kidneys. In …

2020 saw the worst wildfire season on the West Coast of the U.S. since records have been kept. By the end of the year, roughly 4% of California’s acreage had been burned, an area roughly the size of the state of Rhode Island. The fires also broke the weather forecasts. When there are active wildfires, …

This past spring, Stanford University computer scientists unveiled their pandemic brainchild, Code In Place, a project where 1,000 volunteer teachers taught 10,000 students across the globe the content of an introductory Stanford computer science course.   While the instructors could share their knowledge with hundreds, even thousands, of students at a time during lectures, when it …
