I am regularly asked to summarize my many posts. I thought it would be a good idea to publish on this blog, every Monday, some of the most relevant articles that I have already shared with you on my social networks. Today I will share some of the most relevant articles about Artificial Intelligence and in what form you can find it in today’s life. I will also comment on the articles.

Can we apply tests for consciousness to artificial intelligence? A robot could be programmed to say Ow and withdraw its hand from a hot object. But did it feel anything? In Walter Bradley Center director Robert J. Marks’s second podcast with philosopher Angus Menuge, where the big topic is the perennial “Hard Problem of consciousness, they established that one of the implications of quantum mechanics is that consciousness is a “thing”; it exists in its own right. How can we apply that finding to claims for artificial intelligence?

Needles in haystacks: a new generation of AI-enhanced drug discovery companies. A growing number of pharma and biotech companies are harnessing the power of artificial intelligence in drug discovery. The search for novel therapies has long been a trial-and-error process that costs drug companies a vast amount of time and money. Now, with artificial intelligence (AI) set to transform the pharmaceutical industry more than any other emerging technology, a growing number of pharma and biotech groups are harnessing the cutting-edge tech to minimize the hit-and-miss nature of R&D and discover new therapies with previously impossible speed and accuracy.

’Smart toilet’ uses Artificial Intelligence to monitor bowel health. AI vision of flushes enables long-term tracking and management of chronic GI ills. An artificial intelligence tool being developed by Duke scientists can be added to the standard toilet to help analyze patients’ stool and give gastroenterologists the information they need to provide appropriate treatment for chronic issues such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Why Businesses Should Take Note Of The Artificial Intelligence Of Things. If you look at the biggest technological breakthroughs of the past 100 years, what do you think of straight away? Perhaps the invention of the electronic television? Or the invention of microwaves? Or of course, the rise of computers, the internet and the smartphone? Whatever springs to mind at the moment, in about 20 years’ time, you might want to think about adding the “artificial intelligence of things” to your list.

How artificial intelligence is shaking up animal behavior studies in autism. Sam Golden never set out to develop machine-learning software that analyzes mouse behavior. But when he launched his lab in January 2019 to study the neurobiology of aggression, he and his tech-savvy postdoctoral fellow were quick to agree on what they didn’t want to do. “We just looked at each other and said, ‘We don’t want to score any more videos,’” says Golden, assistant professor of neuroscience at the University of Washington in Seattle. Their invention — a package called Simple Behavioral Analysis (SimBA) — was born of a frustration familiar to many autism researchers. Studying behavior generally involves recording videos of rodents, flies, fish, birds, monkeys or other animals — and then ‘scoring’ them by watching hours of replays with a clicker in hand, counting and categorizing what the animals are doing: How many times did that mouse approach another? Or bury a marble in its bedding? A great article that shows us how by studying nature and adding Artificial Intelligence we can help Humans.
