New AI System Selects Donor Organs More Accurately Than Humans

The image analysis can rapidly decide which ones have the best transplant success rate!

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have developed a new AI system that can select donor organs for transplant with greater accuracy than humans. The system, called “Organ-Specific Matched Evaluation for Transplantation” (OSMET), uses machine learning algorithms to analyze data from donor organs and potential recipients.

Dr. Peter Reese, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and one of the authors of the study, said, “OSMET is designed to help clinicians select the best organs for each patient based on a range of factors, including blood type, organ size, and the medical history of both the donor and the recipient.”

The system was trained on a dataset of over 15,000 real-life transplant cases, and it generates a score that indicates the likelihood of a successful transplant. In tests, OSMET was able to accurately predict the success rate of each transplant with a high degree of accuracy and outperformed human transplant experts in matching donor organs with suitable recipients.

A Voice Bank is born, with artificial intelligence for ALS patients – Healthcare

According to an article on Breaking Latest News, a voice bank powered by artificial intelligence (AI) has been developed for patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The article cites Dr. Carlo Rinaldi, a consultant neurologist at the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN) who led the research team.

Dr. Rinaldi explains that patients with ALS gradually lose their ability to speak, which can significantly impact their quality of life. The voice bank, developed in collaboration with Scottish startup, SpeakUnique, enables patients to record their voices before they lose their ability to speak. The AI technology then creates a synthetic voice that closely resembles the patient’s natural voice.

The article also mentions the work of Professor Chris McDermott, a neurologist and researcher at SITraN who emphasizes the importance of preserving the unique voice of ALS patients. Professor McDermott states that “Voice banking is becoming an important part of the care that we offer to patients with ALS, and AI technology is helping to enhance the process.”

According to the article on The Sun, scientists are working on developing artificial intelligence (AI) that could allow humans to communicate with animals. The research is being carried out by a team at Con Slobodchikoff, a professor emeritus at Northern Arizona University, in the US.

The team is using machine learning algorithms to analyze the sounds and body language of different animals, with the aim of developing a universal language that can be understood by both humans and animals. The technology could potentially be used to communicate with a wide range of animals, including dogs, cats, and even wild animals.

According to Slobodchikoff, “The whole idea is to try to get an appreciation for what animals are trying to communicate to us, and then see if there is some way that we can communicate back to them in a way that they can understand.”

The potential applications of this technology are vast, with implications for animal welfare, conservation, and even human-animal relationships. For example, the technology could be used to better understand the needs of pets, or to communicate with endangered species in the wild.

However, the development of this technology is not without its challenges. Animals communicate in a variety of ways, and it can be difficult to determine which signals are meaningful and which are not. Additionally, it can be difficult to accurately interpret the meaning of animal sounds and body language.

Despite these challenges, the team at Northern Arizona University is optimistic about the potential of this technology. As Slobodchikoff explains, “We think we can get there. We’re not there yet, but we think it’s possible.”
