MIT Advances Unsupervised Computer Vision with ‘STEGO’

Training machine learning models often means working with labeled data. For computer vision tasks, this might look, for instance, like an hour of camera footage from a car, meticulously sectioned by humans to designate r Read more…

New Machine Learning Tool Flags Risky Remedies

Sometimes, treatments can make things worse – but it can be hard to know when that is (or isn’t) the case. Such is the case with sepsis, which kills nearly 270,000 annually in the United States – and which can, sad Read more…

MIT Researchers Develop AI That Better Understands Object Relationships

Increasingly, AI is competent when it comes to identifying objects in a scene: built-in AI for an app like Google Photos, for instance, might recognize a bench, or a bird, or a tree. But that same AI might be left cluele Read more…

MIT Researchers Leverage Machine Learning for Better Lidar

Lidar (short for light detection and ranging) is an increasingly common technology – it’s embedded in iPhones and Teslas – that uses lasers to measure distances, allowing accurate remote mapping of small and large Read more…

Facts Can Change, and AI Can Help

As understanding of an issue evolves, the best set of available facts often changes: for instance, mask-wearing wasn’t recommended early in the COVID-19 pandemic, but now, it’s common knowledge that mask-wearing is h Read more…

ML Enlisted to Slow the Spread of Fake News

As should be obvious by now, traditional fact-checking methods have failed to stop “fake news” from spreading like wildfire via social media circuits. While platforms like Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) are developing new Read more…

Data Unifier Tamr Adds More VC Funding

Tamr Inc., the enterprise data integration specialist, added another $10 million in equity funding to its recent $18 million round announced in July. While the five-year-old company reportedly expected its July fundin Read more…

New Approach Seeks to Automate Parallel Programming

Artificial intelligence researchers are leveraging an emerging divide-and-conquer computing approach called "dynamic programming" to greatly accelerate the process of solving problems ranging from genomic analysis to cyb Read more…

CSAIL Tackles Big Data in Healthcare

MIT launched a big data initiative last year at their Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) called [email protected] Since healthcare does provide challenging and potentially lucrative use cases, the big data research at CSAIL encompasses topics like note text analytics and infection tracking. Read more…

The Week in Big Data Research

We span the globe for this week's big data research and development stories. From modeling in Poland and Montreal to analyzing e-literature in Norway and hashing in Japan, this week has a distinct international flair. Also included this week are studies of big data compression out of MIT and private data center access from Microsoft. Read more…

CSAIL Rides Big Data Visualization Wave

Visualization is an important aspect of big data analytics, as it allows humans to make better assessments than they would by just looking at numbers. However, it can take an especially long time to produce a graph or chart if the dataset is in the terabyte range... Read more…

Intel Invests in Big Data with Research Center

This week Intel announced a new center that will focus on critical roadblocks in big data development with an eye on the unique problems of data-intensive computing in the enterprise. The center, which will be housed at MIT's CSAIL will look to the.... Read more…
