UF Health Cancer Center Hosts 3rd Annual AI Day

The UF Health Cancer Center hosted its 3rd Annual AI Day in Cancer Research, drawing speakers and attendees from a range of disciplines, such as engineering, public health, data science, and radiology, to learn more about the role of AI in cancer research.

Confronting Aids in Florida With Artificial Intelligence

A University of Florida research team is playing its part to stop the global HIV epidemic, applying the power of artificial intelligence to medical records to uncover patterns of risk and bias that have left some patients in Florida with poor access to today’s effective treatments — so effective that HIV infections are not sexually transmitted.

AI Micro-Credential Helps Working Professionals Boost Career Options

Micro-credentials have emerged as an ideal way for working professionals to become proficient in a specific area through short, non-credit courses that culminate in a competency-based badge. Earning a micro-credential helps fill knowledge gaps, especially for those in the workforce who have limited time and cannot commit to a semester or longer of learning. That said, now working professionals can gain their own competitive edge by adding an artificial intelligence (AI) micro-credential through the University of Florida’s Office of Professional and Workplace Development.

UF Partners With CIA on Improving Cybersecurity

The university and the CIA have entered an agreement to study how artificial intelligence and machine learning applications (AIML) can be used to detect and deter malicious agents that infiltrate computer networks. The work will be carried out by researchers associated with UF’s Florida Institute for National Security.

What Does a Dog’s Nose Know? A.I. May Soon Tell Us

UF Accelerate client Canaery, thinks it can read the neurons firing in a dog’s olfactory bulb in real-time and, with the help of machine learning, turn the animal into a detection device able to suss out a vast range of molecules, all without the animal having to be specially trained. “This does for scent what machine vision did for sight,” says Gabriel Lavella, Canaery’s founder and chief executive officer.

Using AI in the Arts To Promote COVID-19 Vaccines

Sure, it is fun to see an avatar simulate your body movements in real time, but the interactive augmented reality art installation making its way around campus has a serious aim: educating participants about how COVID-19 impacts health and encouraging vaccination.

1000X More Efficient Neural Networks: Building an Artificial Brain With 86 Billion Physical (but Not Biological) Neurons

What if in our attempt to build artificial intelligence we don’t simulate neurons in code and mimic neural networks in Python, but instead build actual physical neurons connected by physical synapses in ways very similar to our own biological brains? That’s precisely what UF startup Rain Neuromorphics, is trying to do: build a non-biological yet very human-style artificial brain.
