Artificial intelligence diagnoses Alzheimer disease, analyzes the behavior of ATM users and can define which film the viewers liked. Read more about these and other news in our weekly digest.
AI ATMs to appear in Japan
Japanese company Hitachi plans to release ATMs that deploy the artificial intelligence technology and face recognition system.
The ATM will evaluate the human appearance using a neural network. The system will compare the camera image and the photo of the bank’s database and will check the owner’s identity. In some cases, AI can ask to take off sunglasses, the hat, or the scarf. If a person refuses to do so, he will not be able to withdraw money and make other bank operations.
Neural network can also assess behavior, analyze facial expression, and overhear people’s talks.
According to developers, AI will combat fraudsters and prevent crimes. The system will have access to police databases to recognize previously convicted people.
20th Century Fox estimates the interest of viewers using AI
20th Century Fox film studio uses artificial intelligence to estimate the interest in new movies and forecast the profile of a potential viewer.
The AI system called Merlin analyzes the trailer of an upcoming film and generates assumptions about the people that might like the film. AI compares the trailer with trailers available in the database by specific parameters and finds common traits.
In the end, Merlin chooses trailers most similar to the new movie. AI believes that those who watched the picked up films will go to the cinema to watch the new film.
The company conducted a survey among viewers of Logan trailer and defined that the system guesses 11 out of 20 films.
AI identifies Alzheimer disease
Californian scientists developed an artificial intelligence program capable of diagnosing Alzheimer disease at early stages. The neural network analyzes the work of the brain and recognizes the slightest metabolism fluctuations.
Developers inform that AI allows seeing symptoms of dementia six years earlier than when using tomography.
The program will provide a possibility to slow down the development of the disease or totally stop it.
Xiaomi will invest in AI
Xiaomi sees the development of the industry in artificial intelligence.
At the fifth World Internet Conference, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun announced that the company plans to develop AI and IoT technologies in its devices.
According to him, Xiaomi Artificial Intelligence Open Platform intended for smart homes has become a leading one in the market and the company will keep investing in this direction further.
Xiaomi has already financed 220 companies, 100 out of which develop smart solutions for devices. Currently, the technical team of Xiaomi comprises one thousand specialists in cloud technologies, computer vision, speech recognition, deep learning, and other fields.
AI can put on a T-shirt
Developers of Georgia Institute of Technology taught artificial intelligence to dress up. An animated bot managed to put on a T-shirt.
Digital characters learned to dress from scratch. AI gained points for every correct action and lost points for every incorrect action. This encouraged the bot to learn faster.
The task of the animated bot was to put on the T-shirt and not to damage the fabric. To achieve the goal, the process was divided in several steps. When the bot was aware that he fulfilled a specific action correctly, he moved on to the next step.
Authors state that the digital characters can put on only a T-shirt. In order for the bot to put on pants, additional computations are required, as the bot has to maintain the balance.
The research has a practical use. In the future, such AI systems will help disabled people to dress.
