Artificial Intelligence becomes an essential part of future healthcare

In many developed countries, healthcare has become an unsustainable business in recent years, partly due to the aging population and prevalence of chronic diseases. In the US, healthcare spending grew 4.6 percent in 2019 alone, amounting to US$3.8 trillion, or 18 percent of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). However, this increase in spending did not translate into better patient care, nor has it reduced resource scarcity and imbalance in the healthcare industry. How can we transform the healthcare sector to make it more efficient and sustainable? Artificial intelligence (AI) will play...

Containing superintelligent AI is impossible, researchers find

“I’m sorry, Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that.” Ever since the release of Stan Kubrick’s film “2001: A Space Odyssey” more than 50 years ago, the sentient supercomputer HAL-9000 has embodied the fear of a superintelligence computer that emancipates itself from human oversight in order to complete its assignment. In this classic movie, HAL was depicted as turning increasingly neurotic. But today, powerful artificial intelligence is no longer a futuristic concept, and the idea that a superintelligent computer might wrest control from humans to fulfill the tasks it has been set with the highest...

This image shows part of a protein from (Cellulophaga baltica crAss-like) phage phi14:2, a virus that infects bacteria. This phage is part of a group of viruses that includes the most abundant virus in the human gut. The protein itself (gp66) is a newly-discovered DNA-dependent RNA polymerase.

AI network unlocks secrets of protein structures

An algorithm has provided the key to predicting the three-dimensional shapes of folded proteins, opening new pathways for science, including in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases and the discovery of new drugs.  Molecular biologists announced a major breakthrough in the mapping of proteins in the human body on 30 November 2020, after an artificial intelligence (AI) network managed to deduce the three-dimensional structure of a protein from the sequence of its amino acids. The AlphaFold 2 “deep learning” program, developed by Google subsidiary DeepMind, demonstrated the...
