New Facial Recognition System Helps Trace 3000 Missing Children In Just 4 Days

In India, where disappearance of children is a common social issue, facial recognition technology has been useful in identifying and located many missing or displaced children. This breakthrough means that the technology can hopefully be applied to help ameliorate this issue, as well as in other areas such as law enforcement.

How AI can help shatter barriers to equality

Jamila Gordon, an AI activist and the CEO and founder of Lumachain, tells her story as a refugee from Ethiopia to illuminate the great strokes of luck that eventually brought her to her important position in the global tech industry. This makes the strong case for introducing AI into the workplace, as approaches using computer vision can lead to greater safety and machine learning can be applied to help those who may speak a language not dominant in that workplace or culture train and acclimate more effectively.

These Doctors are using AI to Screen for Breast Cancer

A computer vision algorithm created by an MIT PhD student and trained on a large data set of mammogram photos from several years show potential for use in radiology. The algorithm is able to identify risk for breast cancer seemingly more reliably than the older statistical models through tagging the data with attributes that human eyes have missed. This would allow for customization in screening and treatment plans.
