Applying a machine learning technique to a group of possible storm paths could help meteorologists provide more accurate medium-term hurricane forecasts. This approach could also help them issue timely warnings to communities in the path of these potentially deadly storms, report researchers. In a new study, the researchers used machine learning to remove certain groups …

By partnering with Google, DeepMind is able to bring the benefits of AI to billions of people all over the world.  From reuniting a speech-impaired user with his original voice, to helping users discover personalised apps, we can apply breakthrough research to immediate real-world problems at a Google scale. Today we’re delighted to share the results of …

The upcoming US presidential election seems set to be something of a mess—to put it lightly. Covid-19 will likely deter millions from voting in person, and mail-in voting isn’t shaping up to be much more promising. This all comes at a time when political tensions are running higher than they have in decades, issues that …

Methods from scientific machine learning could address the challenges of testing the stability of rocket engines, researchers report. Time, cost, and safety prohibit testing the stability of a test rocket using a physical build “trial and error” approach. But even computational simulations are extremely time consuming. A single analysis of an entire SpaceX Merlin rocket …

An approach inspired by Einstein’s light cones lets AIs make better guesses about what will happen next. It could help predict the effects of drugs. Nobody knows what will happen in the future, but some guesses are a lot better than others. A kicked football will not reverse in midair and return to the kicker’s foot. …

AI and machine learning (ML) tools and solutions are fundamentally changing how businesses are run. Soon, organizations that are not using AI will be at a disadvantage from those that do and applications that are not AI-powered may feel broken. This week at Google Cloud Next ’20: OnAir we explored how Cloud AI is empowering teams with AI …

How useful are the well-known and hotly contested categories of “male brain” and “female brain”? Among experts, nobody really questions that anatomical sex differences in the brain exist. But since the advent of brain science, the scientific community has been divided over how many differences there are, which ones have been definitively proven, how large …

AI-driven organizations are using data and machine learning to solve their hardest problems and are reaping the rewards. “Companies that fully absorb AI in their value-producing workflows by 2025 will dominate the 2030 world economy with +120% cash flow growth,”1 according to McKinsey Global Institute. But it’s not easy right now. Machine learning (ML) systems have …

Despite billions of dollars spent and decades of research, computation in the human brain remains largely a mystery. Meanwhile, we have made great strides in the development of artificial neural networks, which are designed to loosely mimic how brains compute. We have learned a lot about the nature of neural computation from these artificial brains …

Building AI-powered apps can be painful. I know. I’ve endured a lot of that pain because the payout of using this technology is often worth the suffering. The juice is worth the squeeze, as they say. Happily, over the past five years, developing with machine learning has gotten much easier thanks to user-friendly tooling. Nowadays I find …
