An overwhelming amount of knowledge poured into a small KMC hall over two enthusiastic and refreshingly informative days at Dronaid’s Disruptive Healthcare Workshop. From studying logistic regression algorithms and applying to real-life revolutionary medical predictions of breast cancer or heart disease, the Deep Learning and AI workshop was the right advance in strengthening the bond between anatomy and technology, all in an inquisitive zeal to make healthcare one of humanity’s strongest assets in the coming future.
With robots revolutionising agriculture, transport, manufacturing, warehousing and a number of such industries, the 21st century is the most exciting period in robotics.
In the first article of Future Bytes, RoboManipal walks you through the state of robotics today, its origins, and its driving principles.
In yet another way, Manipal city has proven to be one of the finest centres of formal education. To carry this baton one notch higher, MIT has signed up with the leading AI giant – Nurture.AI to reproduce the AI Sundays workshops.
The rapid exponential advancement of computing technology is constantly providing new ways to better and transform lives everywhere. Even as artificial intelligence is finding broad and monumental applications, it has also found a place and is transforming another industry in a more subtle way. Read about how the fusion of art and science as machines create music.
Dronaid aims to transform healthcare in India by using drones to provide medical care. As they marked the one-year anniversary of their project, they also launched activeAI, Manipal’s first open community for Articial Intelligence enthusiasts.
Blank 101’s first ever technical talk on Machine Learning and AI effortlessly covered topics ranging from Google AdSense to whether or not killer robots will take over the world.
Last month, the UK’s National Health Services suffered its biggest cyber-attack that crippled the system for several days. While our reliance on technology seems to be at its riskiest, are we still far away from AI monitored healthcare and treatment? We answer that and more with this article as part of a collaborative series with Hashtag by IECSE.
When IBM’s ‘Deep Blue’ defeated a chess grandmaster, everyone admired the capability of computers. When Google’s ‘Alpha Go’ defeated a 9-dan ranking player at the board game ‘Go’, they were startled by the prowess of Artificial Intelligence. However, sentiments were vastly different when the world was introduced to the first computer that could bluff. Read on as Hashtag by IECSE explores yet another facet of AI – this time involving a game of Texas Hold-Em Poker.
Earlier this year, Microsoft’s Technology and Research team released ‘Tay’, an AI chatbot that learnt from users who interacted with it on Twitter. It was not long before trolls took over and ‘Tay’ began publishing a series of inappropriate tweets before it was decommissioned. As the debate between AI and human nature still rages on, our friends at Hashtag by IECSE tell us all about AI systems and the ethical dilemmas they present.
