LYNA artificial intelligence from Google spots tumors in X-ray pictures with the accuracy of 99%. According to Google representatives, a human factor may sometimes distort diagnostics of metastases in lymph nodes.

“LYNA was able to accurately pinpoint the location of cancer and other suspicious regions within each slide. Some of them were too small to be detected by doctors,” Google comments.

The company representatives think that LYNA would come in handy in medicine by attracting attention to tiny regions in pictures before doctors make a final diagnosis.

DARPA is on its way to creating reasonable AI

DARPA along with the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence came out with the criteria for the description of common sense functions and currently intends to train artificial intelligence the same. Thus, the company is on its way to creating reasonable AI.

At the moment, their project is aimed at solving of two main tasks: understanding of common sense in terms of AI as well as training a machine this intuitive quality.

Magic Leap shows a virtual AI assistant in AR

The first massive manufacturer or additive reality headset presented Mica female AI assistant. Mica is now only a prototype, that’s is why she cannot speak. The developers promise to find a relevant voice solution in the future and will surely demonstrate the results.

The team is now focused on the creation of realistic images and emotions. Some lucky people have already had a chance to see Mica. Lead Writer at VentureBeat Dean Takahashi was one of them and shared the details with us.
