Mechanisms of Action (MoA) Prediction

In the past, scientists derived drugs from natural products or were inspired by traditional remedies. Very common drugs, such as paracetamol, known in the US as acetaminophen, were put into clinical use decades before the biological mechanisms driving their pharmacological activities were understood. Today, with the advent of more powerful technologies, drug discovery has changed […]

INGV – Volcanic Eruption Prediction

What if scientists could anticipate volcanic eruptions as they predict the weather? While determining rain or shine days in advance is more difficult, weather reports become more accurate on shorter time scales. A similar approach with volcanoes could make a big impact. Just one unforeseen eruption can result in tens of thousands of lives lost. […]

Prognosis Prediction | Technology Org

A new artificial-intelligence-based score considers multiple factors to predict the prognosis of individual patients with COVID-19 seen at urgent care clinics or emergency departments. The tool, created by Harvard Medical School investigators based at Massachusetts General Hospital, can be used to rapidly and automatically determine which patients are most likely to develop complications and need […]

Lyft Motion Prediction for Autonomous Vehicles

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) are expected to dramatically redefine the future of transportation. However, there are still significant engineering challenges to be solved before one can fully realize the benefits of self-driving cars. One such challenge is building models that reliably predict the movement of traffic agents around the AV, such as cars, cyclists, and pedestrians. […]

Age and Gender Prediction From Face Images Using Attentional Convolutional Network

Automatic prediction of age and gender from a photo is a task useful in different domains: biometrics, identity verification, video surveillance, crowd behavior analysis, online advertisement, and others. Most often, this task is performed using deep neural networks. Elderly man. Image credit: Pixnio, CC0 Public Domain A recent paper on arXiv.org proposes a novel age […]

Dementia Prediction | Technology Org

Harvard Medical School investigators based at Massachusetts General Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center have developed a machine learning-based sleep test that shows potential as a biomarker associated with unhealthy brain ageing, including processes leading to dementia. The findings, published in JAMA Network Open, may help clinicians identify patients who have dementia or are at risk […]

daVinciNet: Joint Prediction of Motion and Surgical State in Robot-Assisted Surgery

In robot-assisted surgeries, it is important to predict the trajectories of robotic surgical instruments. It helps to prevent collisions between instruments or with near obstacles and to implement multi-agent surgical systems. The prediction of the next surgical states provides a seamless operational workflow and allows synchronized collaborations between the surgeons and operating room staff. Image […]
