AI Data Tracker Encourages Scientific Research into COVID-19 Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions

What impact do measures such as shelter-in-place, mask wearing, and social distancing have on the number of COVID-19 cases? How do the COVID-19 quarantine measures that have been implemented by North American countries compare to South American countries? These are just a few questions about the wide range of non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) that have been applied by governments, globally.

IBM Research addressing Enterprise NLP challenges in 2020

The field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) has made large strides over the last decade. In fact, NLP is so common in today’s AI applications that whether consumers are communicating with a virtual assistant, asking for travel directions or searching for weather predictions, chances are they’re interacting with some form of NLP. This technology, however, […]

How the brain produces a rhythm discovered almost 100 years ago

In the May issue of Communications Biology features a new paper that was done in collaboration with Prof. Miles Whittington of Hull York Medical School (U.K.) and his group. In this new paper, we describe the likely cellular mechanism of the oldest known EEG (electroencephalogram) rhythm: the alpha rhythm, at around 10 cycles per second.  […]
