Nine out of ten patients with memory problems showed improvements with this novel multi-systems approach. A small exploratory study has found that memory loss in patients with Alzheimer’s disease may be reversed — and the improvement sustained — using a novel treatment approach.
IBM’s Watson is a cognitive computing system originally designed to vanquish human competitors on Jeopardy in 2011. Watson has been winding its way into more and more healthcare and health-related use cases. But like most novel technologies, a number of people still don’t understand exactly what Watson is or does — or what IBM’s roadmap for the technology is. […]
Ellie is the world’s first AI-psychologist. Developed by DARPA and researchers at USC’s Institute for Creative Technologies. Ellie is a diagnostic tool capable of reading 60 non-verbal cues a second—everything from eye-gaze to face tilt to voice tone—in the hopes of identifying the early warning signs of depressions and (part of the long term goal) […]
