Source: geralt/Pixabay Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a disturbance of normal brain functions due to a head injury that everyone is at risk. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 138 people die each day in the U.S. due to injuries that include TBI. However, diagnosing TBI often involves unnecessary exposure to radiation from CT (computed tomography) scans. Recently published a few weeks ago in The American Journal of Emergency Medicine, a peer-reviewed publication, physicians at Washington University Barnes Jewish Medical Center in St. Louis found an over 30 percent reduction in unnecessary CT scans for TBI evaluations in emergency rooms using the recently FDA-approved medical device from BrainScope Company, Inc.—a medical neuro-technology company with various public sector and private sector funding, including venture capital from Revolution, founded by Steve Case, the co-founder of America Online (AOL). Those with moderate to severe TBI are at … [Read more...] about AI Brain Device Reduces Need for CT Scans by Over 30 Percent

One of the things that really annoys AI researchers is how supposedly “intelligent” machines are judged by much higher standards than are humans. Take self-driving cars, they say. So far they’ve driven millions of miles with very few accidents, a tiny number of them fatal. Yet whenever an autonomous vehicle kills someone there’s a huge hoo-ha, while every year in the US nearly 40,000 people die in crashes involving conventional vehicles. Likewise, the AI evangelists complain, everybody and his dog (this columnist included) is up in arms about algorithmic bias: the way in which automated decision-making systems embody the racial, gender and other prejudices implicit in the data sets on which they were trained. And yet society is apparently content to endure the astonishing irrationality and capriciousness of much human decision-making. If you are a prisoner applying for parole in some jurisdictions, for example, you had better hope that the (human) judge has just … [Read more...] about To err is human – is that why we fear machines that can be made to err less?
Google’s virtual assistant can now make phone calls on your behalf to schedule appointments, make reservations in restaurants and get holiday hours. The robotic assistant uses a very natural speech pattern that includes hesitations and affirmations such as “er” and “mmm-hmm” so that it is extremely difficult to distinguish from an actual human phone call. The unsettling feature, which will be available to the public later this year, is enabled by a technology called Google Duplex, which can carry out “real world” tasks on the phone, without the other person realising they are talking to a machine. The assistant refers to the person’s calendar to find a suitable time slot and then notifies the user when an appointment is scheduled. Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, demonstrated the capability on stage at the Shoreline Amphitheater during the company’s annual developer conference, I/O. He played a recording of Google Assistant … [Read more...] about Google’s robot assistant now makes eerily lifelike phone calls for you
1. Tesla’s cybertruck will not ship This is an easy prediction to make, because even Tesla isn’t claiming that its eye-catching angular steel beast will be available for sale in 2020. The company’s own pitch is that production won’t even begin until 2021, with owners receiving their first shipments in 2022. But the gap is relevant to Tesla’s future: where the company was once genuinely ahead of the curve, in making beautiful electric cars that people wanted to buy, it has increasingly relied on beating its competitors to announcements, rather than actually shipping. The list of Elon Musk’s as-yet-unfulfilled promises grows every year – but the electric fleets of BMW, Ford, General Motors and others grow faster. 2. Google’s Duplex won’t come to Europe One of the most impressive, and futuristic, products to have come from Google in recent years, Duplex is an AI assistant that can make calls to local businesses on your behalf to do … [Read more...] about Twenty tech trends for 2020
Home • Guides • Mordhau • FOR THE HORDE Ollie Toms Guides Writer 21st June 2019 / 4:04PM I spent a great many dozens of hours figuring out how to play Mordhau before I first tried Horde Mode. I’d got to the point where I would consistently rank at the top of the leaderboards on Frontline, Team Deathmatch, Duel servers… but when I first played Horde, I was completely lost. I died on Wave 4, after being pinned against a stone wall with a dozen hairy bare-chested peasants kicking me over and over until I fell. I say all this as a warning: don’t expect to be able to use the same style of play in every one of Mordhau’s game modes. Instead, why not take a look online at some sort of guide to describe every different game mode, or something… Oh, you’ve done that part already? That’s why you’re here? Well then! This Mordhau game modes guide will walk you through each different mode available in this beautiful … [Read more...] about Mordhau game modes – explanations and tips for Frontline, Skirmish, Horde, and Duel Servers
