Google DeepMind To Scan Eyeballs

Posted by:

Google has reached an agreement to partner with Moorfields Eye Hospital in London on a project to use Google’s machine learning to try to discover paths to early detection of eye problems from diabetes sufferers and from the onset of macular degeneration in aging populations.

Google’s health unit will use deep learning to assess over one million anonymized hi-res 3-D eye scans with the goal of becoming able to automatically diagnose vision problems in hi-risk groups. The hope is that ...

Health at Watson Analyst Day

Posted by:

It was apparent at the Watson Analyst Day on May 23rd that IBM’s message has been refined over the five years since Jeopardy, and that it has begun to gel. Just as we in the Cognitive Computing Consortium have moved from a vague understanding that we were dealing with a fundamentally new phase in technology, so too has IBM’s understanding of what cognitive computing is, and what it’s good for become much more solid.

A core point of emphasis from IBM ...

IBM Watson Meets Big Bird

How can we allow each child to learn at his or her own pace, teaching them what they need to know, but within the context of what excites each child’s curiosity? Can we deliver knowledge when they are most ready to learn it? Can we deliver those ideas within the context of the world they know to enhance and deepen learning?

On April 27th, IBM Watson ...
