Artificial Intelligence & The Intellectual Property Landscape

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become increasingly important to companies and institutions of all sizes and industries. AI is reshaping the business and consumer landscape — from the application of machine learning for speech recognition in the retail industry (for ordering products from smart home devices) to the application of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) for computer Continue Reading

“Father of Machine Learning”, the Chief AI Scientist of Squirrel AI Learning, Tom Mitchell Delivered an Opening Speech at the 2019 World Artificial Intelligence Conference(WAIC): AI for a Brighter World

AI upgrades the digital twin

Virtual representations and simulated models of manufacturing models – or digital twins – were first proposed by Dr Michael Grieves at the Society of Manufacturing Engineers conference in 2002. It was based on the idea that a “digital informational construct about a physical system could be created as an entity on its own. This digital Continue Reading

Deep Learning AI on XSEDE Systems Promises Fewer False Alarms and Early Prediction of Breast Cancer

Screening mammography is an important tool against breast cancer, but it has its limitations. A “normal” screening mammogram means that a woman doesn’t have cancer now. But doctors wonder whether “normal” images contain clues about a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer in the future. Also, most women “recalled” for more tests when their mammograms Continue Reading
