Machine Learning news articles focus on AI research that allows machines to learn from data analysis without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning news reports, videos, research papers and science press releases are covered.
A medical wrist device detected disrupted sleep patterns 24 hours before participants started shedding the flu virus. While the initial study was focused on influenza, researchers speculate the device could be sufficient at spotting the beginning of other infections, including COVID-19. While it should not be considered a full diagnostic device, the wristband data will be useful to guide when people should self isolate as a precaution.
While Parkinson's disease is known to generally affect motor function, there is a range of other symptoms associated with the neurodegenerative disease. Some additional symptoms include changes to the skin on the face and problems forming facial expressions. A new AI system is able to detect subtle changes in facial attributes associated with Parkinson's disease.
A neural decoder is able to use sound representations encoded in human cortical activity to synthesize audible speech. The technology could be used to help those with difficulties speaking to communicate freely.
