Artificial Intelligence

“Paul Allen said his decision to fund AI research lab was inspired by the question of how books and other knowledge might be encoded to become the basis for computer interactions.

… A new synthesis of artificial intelligence, weaving together powerful machine-learning tools with traditional logic-oriented software.

Researchers have focused on three projects — one in computer vision (in which computers learn to recognize images), one to build a reasoning system capable of taking standardized school tests, and a third to help scholars deal with fire hose of information inundating every scientific field.

In September, researchers celebrated first milestone — 60 percent correct answers in language portion of New York State’s fourth-grade science test.”

Science & Engineering News: AI @IBM, Postdoctoral System, Microsoft and More …

 

Academia: Postdoctoral System

“There is a growing number of postdocs and few places in academia for them to go. Some end up trapped as ‘permadocs’: doing multiple postdoc terms, staying for many years and, in a small but significant proportion, never leaving. What does the future hold?

By the time … reached her twelfth year as a postdoctoral fellow, she had finally had enough …”

Artificial Intelligence @IBM

“IBM is testing an idea for making computers more intelligent by utilizing Jeff Hawkins’ ideas on how the human brain operates.”

Artificial Intelligence

“Google Deepmind’s Software lagged human performance at 20 others, and only matched it for the rest.

DeepMind’s software only looks back at the last four video frames of game play (just a 15th of a second) to learn what moves pay off or how to use its past experience to choose its next move. That means it can only master games where you can make progress using tactics that have very immediate payoffs.”

“Eve exploits artificial intelligence to learn from early successes in her screens and select compounds that have a high probability of being active against a chosen drug target,”

Eve automates early-stage drug design. The robot system is able to screen over 10,000 compounds per day, and uses a smart screening system based on genetically engineered yeast. This allows Eve to exclude compounds that are toxic to cells and select those that block the action of the parasite protein while leaving any equivalent human protein unharmed.”

Digital Car

  • Google could consider investing in Tesla Motors. Tesla’s Electric Cars combined with Google’s Self driving Technology, Android would make nice “Digital Electric Cars”!

Artificial Intelligence: Platforms & Services

  • Google could consider buying Viv Labs – if Viv’s technology can add something of value to Google Now and possibly the Search Engine.

Smart Home

  • The Nest Team seems isolated from the rest of the Google Team. Why not add some Product Design Expertise to Google?

Robotics

  • The 8 Robotics Companies Google bought – are laying idle. Those Robots (and parts of Robots) deserve a bit of attention, don’t they?!

A Search Engine based on Real World “Entity” Recognition in Webpages and Information Extraction (IE)

Rather than just Word indexing and Hyperlink Analysis (Current Generation Web Search Engine – introduced in 1998 by Sergey Brin and Larry Page through the Google Search Engine.)

We have had the same Search Engine technology for the past 17 years, with little incremental improvements.

Incremental Improvements included:

1. Refining Search Results based on User Clicks, etc (using Machine Learning Models. Changing “Parameter” values in Equations and testing to find out if users like the newer version more).

2. Parallel & Distributed Processing (to handle the ever increasing size of the Web and the number of Documents it contains)

3. Caching Search Results (for faster responses)

4. Adding “External” Semantic Data on the Search Result page, and in “Domain Specific” Search Engines (e.g., Books, Shopping, etc.).

Instances: Google bought Freebase and integrated the “Knowledge Graph”. Microsoft bought Powerset – the Wikipedia Search Engine.

“Intel CEO Brian Krzanich offered a glimpse into the company’s vision of the near future with a number of cutting-edge demonstrations including gesture controls, facial recognition security prompts, drones that know how to move around obstacles and a jacket that can help the visually impaired or blind sense what’s around them.

At the heart of many of the demonstrations was Intel’s RealSense 3D, the company’s depth-sensing camera technology.

Intel also made another push for wearables with Curie, a button-sized chip

2015 is truly a unique year,” Krzanich said. “It‘s the beginning of the next consumer technology wave.”

GeoEngineering

GeoEngineering could be applied to

  • Deal with Climate Change
  • Predict and Control Natural Disasters

 



“Experiments designed to learn more about ways of geoengineering the climate should be allowed to proceed

SHINY things absorb less heat when left in the sun. This means that if the Earth could be made a little shinier it would be less susceptible to global warming. Ways to brighten it, such as adding nanoscale specks of salt to low clouds, making them whiter, or putting a thin haze of particles into the stratosphere, are the province of “geoengineering”. The small band of scientists which has been studying this subject over the past decade or so has mostly been using computer models. Some of them are now proposing outdoor experiments—using seawater-fed sprayers to churn out particles of the exact size needed to brighten clouds, or spewing sulphur particles from underneath a large balloon 20km up in the sky ….”

“Scientific studies of techniques for deliberately modifying the climate are getting ready to move out of the laboratory”

Cloud Computing

“The developer tools of Microsoft’s Azure cloud service are superior, he says, and he likes its personalized customer service.

“The Battle in Seattle.” (Microsoft vs Amazon in Cloud Computing)

Synergy Research Group puts Amazon’s share of the $14.5 billion worldwide market for cloud infrastructure services at 27 percent as of this year’s third quarter, down slightly from 28 percent the year before, while Azure’s has climbed three percentage points to 10 percent“It’s clearly a two-horse race now”

Azure now supports seven versions of Linux

Microsoft is also trying to recruit customers among the young Web companies that are Amazon’s main market. It offers members of some tech accelerators or incubators $5,000 a month of Azure services at no cost for up to a year.

Microsoft’s Guthrie says salespeople sign up more than 10,000 Azure customers each week.



Big Data / Visualization

 
 
 
Artificial Intelligence

 

 

“DeepMind researchers showed off software that had learned to play three classic Atari games – Pong, Breakout and Enduro – better than an expert human. 

DeepMind had made use of a newly fashionable machine learning technique called deep learning, which involves processing data through networks of crudely simulated neurons. But it had combined deep learning with other tricks to make something with an unexpected level of intelligence.

DeepMind had combined deep learning with a technique called reinforcement learning,

Hassabis dreams of creating “AI scientists” that could do things like generate and test new hypotheses about disease in the lab. When prodded, he also says that DeepMind’s software could also be useful to robotics.”

“Richard Socher is trying to bring A.I. tools to a larger audience. A Stanford Ph.D., Socher in 2009 helped create ImageNet, a set of benchmarks that A.I. researchers use to compare their image-recognition software in an annual online competition.

[Applications of text- and photo-recognition Software:]

MetaMind taught its software to study mammograms and incorporate doctors’ reports, to identify evidence of breast cancer, for a radiology company. For a consumer electronics company, it wrote an algorithm that could recognize foods based on cell phone photos; … it’s working on ways to count calories looking at images.

MetaMind is also working to help a financial-services firm evaluate the risk of a stock selloff by scanning corporate financial disclosures, and to help a customer-retention company identify online interactions that suggest when a retailer needs to reach out to an angry customer


Most A.I. programs can’t scan written and visual media at once


Matthew Zeiler, the CEO of image-focused A.I. startup Clarifai in New York, says his company has been most focused on “real-world applications” such as tracking brands in social media photos or scanning security footage for incidents


According to the ImageNet benchmarks Socher designed—MetaMind’s software correctly classifies objects 92.4 percent of the time; based on the results from this year’s ImageNet competition, that’s second only to Google.”

 
 
Smart Home

“Samsung, Apple (AAPL), and Google (GOOG) are all envisioning a world where things such as mobile devices and household goods surrounding us will speak to each other,”

Manhattan Scale project on BioSciences, Translational Medicine and BioEngineering

 

 

I’ll start a Manhattan Scale project on BioSciences, Translational Medicine and BioEngineering – that will define the frontiers of Healthcare and related fields – like Environment, Energy (Fuel; Photosynthesis inspired Solar Cells?) & Sustainability, Agriculture.

 

  • Cancer, Ebola, Parkinson’s, AIDS, Alzheimer’s,
  • Disabilities and losses (Eyesight loss; Limb Amputee, etc. <- Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine. We can replace with Mechanical / Physical parts as long as we our Stem Cell / Regenerative Medicine Tech is not advanced enough – but remember – Biology – is the ultimate technology.

 

My Guiding Principle would be – Restore the Normal (as opposed to the artificial – Mechanical devices or Pills or Drugs) – possibly through
  • Stem Cell / Regenerative Medicine or
  • Gene Therapy.

 

As long as we can’t make headway in Stem Cell / Gene Therapy – we can do away with Drugs and Devices – but the ultimate future is Biology.
My Plan is to build
  • Medical / Scientific / Engineering Equipments (that would be required in my own research) and
  • Sell and use the profit to fund my research / further work.

 

So only limited funding would be required in the first phase – and from that point on self – funding / reinvesting.
Equipments would require continuous innovations and improvements. For example,
  • Gene Sequencers (Bringing down the cost of Gene sequencing of a single Genome to several hundred dollars or maybe $100.)
  • Robots that automate much of Experimental work. [Consider: Combinatorial Chemistry – parallel reactions]

 

Another line of products (lots of innovations)
  • Medical / Surgical Equipments (from smaller Ultra-Sounds to “Da Vinci”-like Surgical Robots)
  • Healthcare IT Infrastructure and Services (to Hospitals, Clinics) – Examples:
    • Sensors that measure Body parameters and store data in Database / Cloud <- Big Data 2.0 on Data;
    • Watson-like AI on Medical Literature (e.g., Pubmed) to augment Medical Researchers and Physicians

 

Hiring
 

 

A few

BioEngineering / BioMedical Engineering / Molecular Biology / Cell Biology / BioChemistry / BioPhysics / BioInformatics / Computational Biology PhDs

– each concentrating on a particular part – under my supervision:

  • One researcher concentrating on Transport system of Cells – 2013 Nobel Physiology or Medicine Prize Work (Collaborating with other researchers focused on other Cellular organelles or Extra-cellular Matrix)

 

  • Another researcher concentrating on Spatial Representations and Motor Planning in the Brain – 2014 Nobel Physiology or Medicine Prize Work
  • Couple working on how to repair / replace Damaged Organs with Tissue / Organs grown from Stem Cells – carrying on the 2012 Nobel Physiology or Medicine Prize Work
Policy Reform:
I will review and modernize the FDA (Drug, Medical Device) appoval process.
Going through a process that takes 10 years and costs Billion Dollars – after inventing a drug [and device] – to bring it to market – kills off many promising drugs.
Other “Manhattan Scale” Projects / Innovations:
 
Education Platform
  • Huge! Reinvention of Education. Changes the way Education is delivered, the way how people learn in each and every country of the World. [Microsoft?]
  • E-Book 2.0 / E-Magazine 2.0 / E-Newspaper 2.0 & Digital Publishing

Artificial Intelligence Platform

  • Watson-like Natural Language Understanding + A Lot More
  • Less computational resource requirement; Highly developed Knowledge Processing / Reasoning
  • Apps and Services on Top of the Platform

Cloud Manufacturing Platform + Physical Digital Computing Division

  • This is where the Medical / Surgical / Scientific Equipments would be manufactured.
  • + Manufacturing Equipments and Services for Companies
  • Materials / Nano / Applied Physics / Engineering Research

Knowledge Based Robotics

  • Imagine: Robot Engineers repairing your Car.
  • Robots in Industry. Home. Healthcare. Service Robots.

“Stacey Burr
Vice president, wearable sports electronics, adidas
Physiology and activity sensors will enable volumes of data to be collected from athletes unobtrusively. Predictive analytics will be delivered through alerts, enabling coaches to respond in real time to performance shifts or injury risks. When injuries occur, sensors will inform rehabilitation strategies. These insights will enable coaches to be more precise in their training methods and athletes to sustain peak performance over time.”

Head of professional football services, Opta
“The biggest advancement will be the acceptance and integration of qualified data scientists into a team’s back-room staff. This Moneyball approach will continue to change football as it has changed many sports.”

Microsoft

“Microsoft has patched a critical bug in its software that had existed for 19 years.
The bug had been present in every version of Windows since 95, IBM said.
Attackers could exploit the bug to remotely control a PC, and so users are being urged to download updates.”
