This is a review of some artificial intelligence news that happened throughout the week.

Artificial intelligence is proving to be able to identify covid19 pneumonia in computed thermography. New study shows that artificial intelligence is 90% accurate when it comes to classifying patients with covid19. Positive cases are 84% correct and negative 93%. Thanks to thermography, carriers can be detected without symptoms, which is a major advantage in the current pandemic.

Creating beer with Intelligence

Swiss Project creates a new beer with the help of Artificial Intelligence. The manufacture is human but the recipe was created by an algorithm called Brauer AI, which after choosing the type of beer analyzed an approximate of 157,000 recipes of these drinks. This identifies tastes for beers, classifying the most appropriate malts and proportions in the mix, also helping to suggest the brewing time.
The project says not to try to compete with a traditional product if not to get the best result from the union of human and machine.

Resurrecting emperors

Artificial Intelligence called Artbreeder helps create realistic portraits of busts of Roman emperors. With the help of a neural network, more than 800 busts were analyzed, which help to more realistically model aspects such as facial features, hair, etc. And then with Photoshop they are detailed with the help of additional features found in other works of art, ancient coins and historical accounts.

The problem is still DeepFake

Experts say that it is practically impossible for the public to detect manipulated images and sounds. Nowadays, both image and video editing technologies have become very advanced, which raises the question of whether something seen on the internet is real or false. This leads to more problems such as disinformation that carries from threats to affecting something such as elections of a country in campaign, not controlling information online generates an unstoppable avalanche of disinformation.

Discovering Mars with AI

Artificial Intelligence is helping scientists discover new craters. The identification process requires patience to scan a single image of Mars that can take more than 40 minutes to be analyzed by one person. JPL scientists have a tool to help them classify fresh impact craters. An image classifier was fed with 6,830 images including the location of previously discovered craters, it was also provided with images without new impacts on the surface to teach you what not to look for.

Robots for the homebody

Robots endowed with Artificial Intelligence are learning to clean the house. A robotic arm created by Toyota and suspended from the ceiling is learning to grasp objects correctly with the help of machine learning. Whether it’s picking up cups or cleaning a kitchen surface, the algorithms want to do it for you.

Preventing heart attacks with Artificial Intelligence

Currently heart failure causes 1 in 8 deaths. Acute heart failure is caused by excess fluid in the lungs, this is called pulmonary edema. To know the level of fluid in a person is determined by an X-ray that is evaluated by a doctor that sometimes leads to an imprecise medication. A team of researchers from the MIT Laboratory of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence have developed a machine learning system that looks at the X-ray to determine the severity of edema ranging from 0 (healthy) to 3 (bad). He graded correctly more than half the time, hitting level 3 for edema 90% of the time.

Thanks for reading, I hope you have informed yourself of something new. See you in the next edition.
