AI Brain

Listening AI could diagnose Alzheimer’s early

Diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease can be a tricky and lengthy process, with multiple in-person neuropsychological exams followed by even more tests. Diagnosis could very well cost a patient valuable treatment time, so speed is of the utmost importance.  Researchers from Boston University have Read More...

Chickens

AI could identify chickens in distress and improve conditions

We’ve already written before about AI’s potential to improve pigs’ lives by listening to them. Now, scientists have found they can use AI on another barnyard favorite: chickens.  Artificial intelligence can help the happiness and well-being of chickens by listening to them and determining Read More...

AI exposes coral reefs “singing”

Coral reefs are essential to ocean ecosystems, providing food and homes to all sorts of organisms. Learning as much as possible about these living creatures is important to protect all the life in the vast seas. A team from the University of Exeter is doing just that, creating an algorithm to Read More...
