This week’s guide gives an insight of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in boosting sleep disorder treatments, internal security, schools, and much more.
Considering that sleep centers collect massive amounts of data, researchers can enable AI and machine learning algorithms to advance sleep care. It is evident that these technologies have the potential of accurate diagnosis, disease predictions, treatment prognosis, and many others. Hence, according to studies, artificial intelligence is also capable of being applied to boost efficiencies and precision in sleep disorder treatment — leading to improved care and better patient outcomes. As per the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine, a statement studies the electrophysiological data collected during polysomnography. It is a test that diagnoses sleep disorders – and claims that it is now well-positioned for enhanced analysis with AI and machine learning.
Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) has been increasingly adopting the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in order to deal with their internal security challenges. At their recent interaction at Defexpo 2020 – Lucknow, the company presented their new Command Control System (CCS), which tracks Persons of Interest (PoI) in public spaces like airports or railway stations – all of which is operated on an existing CCTV footage. The AI in the system continues to track the individual for as long as they remain within the CCTV coverage area. Their other inventions to tackle security challenges include a micro-drone – specially designed with AI-powered tools to independently follow after troops in the field while periodically scanning the landscape ahead.
The National Association of Software and Services Companies (Nasscom), in collaboration with Niti Aayog’s Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), has officially launched an AI based module for Indian school students. This AI-Based Module has been designed to be implemented across 5,000 Atal Tinkering Labs (ATL) — to empower over 2.5 million students. The module essentially contains activities, videos and experiments to enable students to understand, learn and work through the various concepts of AI. It combines play and academics to make concepts appealing and interesting. The AI module has been considered critical since it is targeted at younger students to evolve and assist in the country’s development.
While we know that machines and artificial intelligence can be many things, the real question can they be creative? According to Professor Marcus du Sautoy, the role of AI today is one of a kind, and a catalyst of sorts to push human creativity. He believes thatI it is the machine-human collaboration that has produced fascinating results, and none of it would have developed if either were working alone. The aim here is not about AI replacing human creativity, but instead to examine beneficial ways that AI is potentially used as a tool to augment human creativity. Considering that AI has boosted human creativity in art, music, dance, design, recipe building, publishing and many other sectors, it will only continue to do so in the long run.
