A team of researchers at the University of Alberta in Canada led by an Indian origin scientist has apparently developed an artificial intelligence (AI) powered tool that is capable of accurately diagnosing schizophrenia. The AI tool has been named EMPaSchiz and it is expected to create a new revolution in the area of schizophrenia treatments and diagnosis. During the study, researchers examined the brain scans of people using EMPaSchiz and found that schizophrenia was predicted accurately by 87 percent. As per reports, this is for the first time that an AI tool is succeeding in predicting schizophrenia with a high rate of accuracy. Earlier, in 2017, researchers at IBM and Alberta developed a tool capable of predicting schizophrenia with 74 percent accuracy. "Schizophrenia is characterized by a constellation of symptoms that might co-occur in patients. Two individuals with the same diagnosis might still present different symptoms. This often leads to misdiagnosis. Machine learning, in … [Read more...] about Scientists develop AI-powered tool to accurately diagnose schizophrenia

“We call this algorithm POP and it has proved to be highly accurate,” King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL) lecturer Asst Professor Chinnawat Surussavadee revealed this week. He led the KMITL research team, which created POP in collaboration with the Thailand Research Fund. Chinnawat said his team focused on developing an efficient tool to predict and estimate rainfall, because Thailand lacks accurate information for effective water management, which is why it is regularly hit by drought and floods. “There are not many rainfall stations in the country, and that’s why planners don’t have solid information in hand,” Chinnawat pointed out. He explained that while a station can forecast the amount of rain that is expected to fall in its own area, this information cannot be used to represent the entire province. “When rain falls here, it does not mean there is rain in all of Bangkok,” he … [Read more...] about Researchers develop accurate rainfall predicting algorithm
By Andrew Jeffrey StarMetro Calgary Sat., Nov. 24, 2018 As the Calgary Stampeders ride into their third straight Grey Cup this Sunday, a heavy sense of déjà vu faces Calgary fans after two straight years of championship losses. Calgary has finished the CFL regular season with the best record in the West Division each year since 2013, and they’ve represented the west in the Grey Cup in three out of the last six years.

Betting odds give Calgary an edge, they finished with two more wins than the Redblacks this season and they defeated Ottawa twice already this year. But to get a sense about … [Read more...] about Five Calgary tarot card readers look into the Stampeders’ future before the Grey Cup
