Managing Medical Uncertainty: How Hospitals Use AI to Protect Patients

Hospitals across the United States are relying on AI to keep patients safe. Doctors are using a variety of machine learning systems to assess the risk that a given patient will suffer complications.

More Thinking Solves Harder Problems: AI Can Learn From Simple Tasks to Solve Hard Problems

In machine learning, an easy task and a more difficult version of the same task — say, a maze that covers a smaller or larger area — often are learned separately.

Adversarial Helper

Models that learn relationships between images and words are gaining a higher profile. New research shows that adversarial learning, usually a way to make models robust to deliberately misleading inputs, can boost vision-and-language performance.

Making GANs More Inclusive

A typical GAN’s output doesn’t necessarily reflect the data distribution of its training set. Instead, GANs are prone to modeling the majority of the training distribution, sometimes ignoring rare attributes — say, faces that represent minority populations.

Facing Down Deepfakes

Deepfakes threaten to undermine law and order, perhaps democracy itself. A coalition of tech companies, nonprofits, and academics joined forces to counter potential adverse impacts.
