Global AI Index: All Four Nordics in Top 25

Scandinavia is recovering from the harsh AI Winter of the 1990’s. British Tortoise AI index ranks Finland a global #11 plus a “rising star,” as a result of Finland’s ongoing focus on skills development, driven by both government strategy and an excellent ecosystem of academia, AI-accelerators, private AI labs, tech …

Learning for AI

Learning for AI, and the other way too

A quote from neither Informator nor Tieturi, but from the Lancet medical journal, April 2021: “particularly deep learning, has changed our lives (…) deep learning systems capable of diagnosing skin cancer and fully autonomous AI approved for diabetic retinopathy screening (…) A key concern is how should clinicians be educated …


Silver Lining on Dark Covid Cloud: from cover stories in Science, Nature, SA, to AI success stories

Over the past two decades, global AI research output grew +600%, and its steep growth continues, according to the Stanford 2019 AI Index Report. The IDC Worldwide Semiannual Artificial Intelligence Tracker predicts global AI revenues to double over the first half of this decade, to $300 billion in 2024. The silver …


7 Red flags, in Another Data-Misinterpretation Wave – Will AI Mitigate it?

Statistics climbed from an unpopular school subject to top of the agenda in 2020, and skilled data analysts are in short supply in the year of astoundingly-exponential curves. Although health–related AI and data analysis expand, many surprisingly well-informed academic graduates still get cheated by rush-job presentations of correct data compiled …

Federated (Machine) Learning spins off to Med apps

Telcos, Med, Pharma, and on it goes. Looking back, the old saying “AI is what was impossible yesterday” fits on FL. I wrote about AI in health in my posts before this summer; now, those seem to converge in health and care, thanks to the CORD-19 AI Challenge and even …


What CoViD-research can learn from IT architects & AI, and vice versa

Microcommunities (by WHO and ECDC) and Microservices (in SOA). Spread of Corona virus and Internet virus. Public safety and data security. Organizational learning and machine learning. An ever-growing list. The devil is in the detail That is, the Joker is the combination of cross-cutting issues and (unpredictable) behavior. So, dear …


ML in Health: Allen alliance fights Corona

Since my last post on Health and (Federated) Machine Learning, the tech sector’s involvement has multiplied, almost day by day. MS Research & AI 2 (the Allen Institute for AI) partnered with leading research groups to prepare and distribute for free the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19). Mining useful insights …

3 x ML in Public Health and Care

Health, pharma, and care expose Machine Learning to yet another stress test in practice, which adds another vital quality attribute to architects’ QA-list (along with explainability, security, safety, accuracy, etc.)  – privacy-friendly ML. Three current examples from the health realm 1. Most public authorities worldwide are using outdated analytics tools …

Intelligible Intelligence

Intelligible Intelligence: Deep XAI still more R&D than toolbox

Most architectural tradeoffs are hard. So is the one between the accuracy of Deep Machine Learning (ML) and explainability/transparency of explainable AI (XAI). Therefore, DARPA’s initial XAI program is expected to run through 2021.
