Scientists develop lie detector test for written text
Scientists have developed a computer tool that can spot if somebody has filed a fake police statement based purely on the text included in the document. Using a combination of automatic text analysis and advanced machine learning techniques, the tool has been able to successfully identify false robbery reports with over 80 per cent accuracy.

AI doctor could boost chance of survival for sepsis patients
Scientists have created an artificial intelligence system that could help treat patients with sepsis. The technology, developed by researchers from Imperial College London , was found to predict the best treatment strategy for patients. Our new AI system was able to analyse a patient's data - such as blood pressure and heart rate - and decide the best treatment strategy.

A step toward personalized, automated smart homes
A step toward personalized, automated smart homes
System that automatically identifies people moving around indoors could enable self-adjusting homes. Developing automated systems that track occupants and self-adapt to their preferences is a major next step for the future of smart homes. When you walk into a room, for instance, a system could set to your preferred temperature.

Brain-inspired algorithm helps AI systems multitask and remember
Behind most of today's artificial intelligence technologies, from self-driving cars to facial recognition and virtual assistants, lie artificial neural networks. Though based loosely on the way neurons communicate in the brain, these "deep learning" systems remain incapable of many basic functions that would be essential for primates and other organisms.

Automated system identifies dense tissue, a risk factor for breast cancer, in mammograms
Automated system identifies dense tissue, a risk factor for breast cancer, in mammograms
Deep-learning model has been used successfully on patients, may lead to more consistent screening procedures. Researchers from MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital have developed an automated model that assesses dense breast tissue in mammograms - which is an independent risk factor for breast cancer - as reliably as expert radiologists.

Using mobile data to model the drinking habits of Swiss youth
Using mobile data to model the drinking habits of Swiss youth
Researchers have carried out a study using smartphone data from young Swiss people to better understand the circumstances in which they are most likely to drink. A computer model developed from the data can estimate, with over 75% accuracy, whether alcohol was consumed on a given weekend night. Do young people drink more out on the town or at a friend's place?

Technique quickly identifies extreme event statistics
Technique quickly identifies extreme event statistics
Machine-learning model provides risk assessment for complex nonlinear systems, including boats and offshore platforms. Seafaring vessels and offshore platforms endure a constant battery of waves and currents. Over decades of operation, these structures can, without warning, meet head-on with a rogue wave, freak storm, or some other extreme event, with potentially damaging consequences.

Researcher Thinks Outside the Box for Big Science
"What would happen if...'" To answer that question, scientists - whether they're studying climate science or cosmology - rely on computer simulations to bring their abstract data to life in 3D. The process is painstakingly slow, however: One simulation can take up to a million CPU (central processing unit) hours on a supercomputer.

Ultra-light gloves let users "touch" virtual objects
Scientists from EPFL and ETH Zurich have developed an ultra-light glove - weighing less than 8 grams per finger- that enables users to feel and manipulate virtual objects. Their system provides extremely realistic haptic feedback and could run on a battery, allowing for unparalleled freedom of movement.

Explainable AI: What Happens Inside the Black Box
Carnegie Mellon University Professor Leman Akoglu specializes in anomaly detection models. The Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy faculty member is an expert on machine learning and data mining and uses that knowledge to explain how algorithms make decisions. A successful anomaly detection model will comb through transactions on those reports and flag items that seem out of place so they can be investigated.

Model helps robots navigate more like humans do
Model helps robots navigate more like humans do
In simulations, robots move through new environments by exploring, observing, and drawing from learned experiences. When moving through a crowd to reach some end goal, humans can usually navigate the space safely without thinking too much. They can learn from the behavior of others and note any obstacles to avoid.

Scientists ’virtually unravel’ burnt 16th century scroll
Scientists are on the look-out for damaged and unreadable ancient scrolls as brand new techniques have revealed the hidden text inside a severely burnt 16th century sample. The new development, the latest in a long line of advancements in the field in recent years, has shown how ‘virtual unravelling' can be achieved using a more autonomous approach and with scrolls that contain multiple pages.

After the Big One: Understanding aftershock risk
Cranes dismantle buildings damaged by the 2011 Christchurch earthquake. (Photo credit: iStock) Geophysicist Gregory Beroza discusses the culprits behind destructive aftershocks and why scientists are harnessing artificial intelligence to gain new insights into earthquake risks. In early September 2018, a powerful earthquake on the island of Hokkaido in northern Japan triggered landslides, toppled buildings, cut power,  halted industry , killed more than 40 people and injured hundreds.

Reducing false positives in credit card fraud detection
Model extracts granular behavioral patterns from transaction data to more accurately flag suspicious activity. Have you ever used your credit card at a new store or location only to have it declined? Has a sale ever been blocked because you charged a higher amount than usual? Consumers' credit cards are declined surprisingly often in legitimate transactions.
