$1.1M NIH Grant Will Further AI-powered Research Analysis

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health, robotics/AI

A team of scientists from the University of Florida (UF) will use a $1.1 million grant to further their work on the use of artificial intelligence-or AI-powered medical research for predicting and diagnosing Parkinson’s disease while maintaining patient privacy.

This grant, from the National Institutes for Health (NIH), will allow the scientists to train artificial neural network models — computer systems modeled on the human brain and nervous system — and further develop AI technologies that can predict and diagnose Parkinson’s, according to a press release.

“The proposed research will remove a major roadblock that restricts medical data accessibility and hinders cloud-based operations of deep-learning artificial neural networks for biomedical research,” the investigators said.

Artificial photosynthesis turns CO2 into sustainable fuel

Posted by in categories: solar power, sustainability, transportation

AArtificial photosynthesis turns CO2 into sustainable fuel: Carbon capture is the idea of taking CO2 from the air and storing it. Carbon conversion is taking that same CO2 and turning it into something useful. CO2 can be used for a number of products, but one of the most exciting is alternatives to fossil fuels.

If we look at what’s possible with batteries today, you can do a lot. You can electrify certain portions of aviation, but they’re just never gonna touch that jumbo jet full of a couple of hundred passengers going a thousand miles. And that’s where sustainable aviation fuels come in.

Jason Salfi, CEO of Dimensional Energy, a company using artificial photosynthesis to produce carbon-neutral alternatives to fossil fuels. Their first product, a carbon-neutral jet fuel.

K Line leads joint project on AI-based navigation for autonomous ships

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

The agreement is part of K Line’s Initiative for Expediting Implementation of Autonomous Ships.

The joint R&D project aims to develop a system that will prevent serious maritime accidents such as ship collisions and groundings and that will lead to autonomous ship operations by combining K Line’s manoeuvring knowledge and experience in safe ship operation over many years, JRC marine equipment’s knowledge and advanced radio technology developed, and YDK’s steering and propulsion control technology.

The aim is to develop a comprehensive system that will further improve the safety of ship operations by utilising the knowledge and technologies of the three partners in each process from situation awareness by the seafarer to maneuvering control of the ship, combined with the most advanced technologies provided by Groke Technologies, Fujitsu, and Forum8.
