Diagnosing Lung Disease Using Deep Learning

Introduction Emphysema, a progressive lung disease that impacts breathing ability, affects more than 3 million people in the United States, and more than 65 million people worldwide. Early detection is key in stopping the progression of emphysema, which in severe cases is life-threatening. Pneumonia, a lung infection that also impacts breathing, causes another 1.4 million…

Deep Learning is Coming of Age

In the early days of artificial intelligence (AI), Hans Moravec asserted what became known as Moravec’s paradox: "it is comparatively easy to make computers exhibit adult-level performance on intelligence tests or playing checkers, and difficult or impossible to give them the skills of a one-year-old when it comes to perception and mobility.” This assertion held…

Experience AI Theory in Action at the Artificial Intelligence Conference in London

There’s no “one size fits all” when deploying AI today - instead, you’ll find a mix of applications with varying compute, storage, memory, and communications needs. Intel AI technologies are designed to support usage models as diverse as training massive, unstructured data sets to performing on-device inference. And the industries finding value in AI are…

Using Machine Learning and EMR Data to Predict Patient Decline

Can predictive analytics alert a hospital’s rapid-response team (RRT) to a health crisis in the making? Yes they can, said Brett MacLaren, vice president of enterprise analytics at Sharp HealthCare in San Diego, California. MacLaren oversaw an eight-week proof-of-concept (PoC) project that analyzed data from the hospital’s Cerner* electronic medical record (EMR) system to identify…
