Using Machine Learning To Predict Disease In Cattle Might Help Solve A Billion-Dollar Problem

Using Machine Learning To Predict Disease In Cattle Might Help Solve A Billion-Dollar Problem

Machine Learning – One of the challenges in scaling up meat production are issues of disease for the animals. Take bovine respiratory disease (BRD), for example. This contagious infection is responsible for nearly half of all feedlot deaths for cattle every year in North America. The industry’s costs for managing the disease come close to $1 billion annually. 

The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Surgery

The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Surgery

Artificial Intelligence – “We’ve witnessed ten years of change in a month” is a typical description of how the pandemic is accelerating the use of telemedicine. Before the virus, video appointments made up only 1% of the 350m consultations which Britain’s National Health Service handles each year. Companies like Docly, eConsult and AccuRx are changing that. The latter claims that 90% of primary care clinics in England are now using its video-calling system.

Artificial Intelligence Used To Predict Loneliness In Senior Citizens

Artificial Intelligence Used To Predict Loneliness In Senior Citizens

Researchers have used artificial intelligence to accurately predict loneliness in residents at a senior housing community in San Diego. Publishing in the American Journal of Psychiatry, the researchers were able to harness natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning to classify the sentiment and emotions of speech.

Using Machine Learning To Reduce Carbon Emissions In The Trucking Industry

Machine learning – In 2018, freight trucks contributed 23% of the greenhouse gas emissions in 2018, and by sector, transportation contributes an overall 28% of those emissions.

“The Reasonable Robot” Looks At The Intersection Of Artificial Intelligence (AI) And Law

“The Reasonable Robot” Looks At The Intersection Of Artificial Intelligence (AI) And Law

Artificial Intelligence – I was sent a copy of Ryan Abbott’s “The Reasonable Robot” by the publishers. It is an interesting book that discusses a few critical areas of law as they could interact with artificial intelligence (AI).

Why Monitoring is being supplemented by Observability

Why Monitoring is being supplemented by Observability

The classic methods of monitoring computing platforms created a vast array of odometers and graphs that displayed the changes over time of critical system parameters.

Machine Learning – Entrepreneurs and investors should take note of how artificial intelligence (AI) is disrupting business in every vertical.

Artificial intelligence learns continental hydrology

Artificial intelligence learns continental hydrology

Artificial Intelligence – Changes to water masses which are stored on the continents can be detected with the help of satellites. The data sets on the Earth’s gravitational field which are required for this, stem from the GRACE and GRACE-FO satellite missions. As these data sets only include the typical large-scale mass anomalies, no

The Work-From-Home Genie Is Out Of The Bottle AIOps

AIOps – These days, it can feel as if our world is being toyed with by a not-so-benevolent jinn. In Middle East folklore, a jinn—or genie to Western audiences—can bring destruction and disease, or good luck and abundance.
