AI is amazing

Technologies with Artificial Intelligence increasingly support us in health, astronomy, tourism, culture, and more. This gallery shows the latest developments.

Sophia

Sophia is a humanoid robot created in 2016 by Hanson Robotics from Hong Kong. The automaton not only reproduces human gestures, but it can also talk and recognize faces.

The more she interacts. the more she learns

The more she interacts with humans, the more knowledge Sophia acquires. Initially, Sophia was designed to keep the elderly company.

AI and the human locomotor system

Robotics has also helped people with reduced mobility or even paralysis. Devices with biometric sensors detect the nerve signals that the brain sends to the extremities of the body, causing them to move.

A pioneering exoskeleton

In 2019, the French company Clinatec developed an exoskeleton in partnership with the University of Grenoble.

An AI-Body

This AI-body could help a tetraplegic person move their legs and arms through signals captured by two small implants in the brain.

Robotic assistance in the OR

Several hospitals in the world use the Da Vinci robot to perform operations. Instead of having direct contact with the patient, the doctor controls the arms of the machine from a console.

Used for several procedures

The robot can perform several types of procedures with more precision than the surgeon. In Pennsylvania, Da Vinci was able to extract a tumor from the patient's mouth in 2017.

A robot ran for mayor

An android named Michihito Matsuda was a candidate for mayor of Tama, a district in Tokyo. It came in third after the vote.

Would you vote for a robot?

The robot, which had feminine physical characteristics, promised "fair and balanced opportunities for all."

AI for detecting psychosis

More than 700 million people in the world suffer from mental disorders. The American technology company IBM has teamed up with neurologists to develop a tool that measures the complexity and coherence of patients' speech.

IBM's tool to detect psychosis

Through this process, it can predict more accurately whether there are signs of psychosis in a person's behaviour or speech.

AI that helps the baby sleep

In 2019, the Lullaai company launched an application of the same name that tracks a baby's sleep habits and the sounds surrounding them. Building on that, it creates routines according to the needs of each family.

The virtual conversation between Bob and Alice

Facebook is one of the world leaders in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Among its projects is conversation software with bots.

That time Facebook bots got out of control

In 2017, the bots Bob and Alice went beyond what Facebook had programmed for them. The software had to be turned off because they began to communicate in their own language.

A hologram singer

Hatsune Miku, whose name means "the first sound of the future," performs live shows and even opened for Lady Gaga during her entire tour. Miku was developed by the Japanese company Crypton Future Media with the software Vocaloid.

Robots that detect sexual harassment at work, on social media

Aggressive, threatening or harassing language can be identified by bots trained to analyze corporate communications. The technology comes from the company NexLP and is also implemented by Instagram.

AI to predict earthquakes

A data set applied to the ConvNetQuake neural network has opened up the possibility of predicting earthquakes. The technology was developed by machine learning experts from Google (another major leader in the field of AI), and scientists from Havard University.

AI that detects skin cancer

A Convolutional Neural Network is AI that processes and analyzes images. Scholars at the University of Heidelberg have discovered that this AI can detect more melanomas than doctors.

AI detecting breast cancer

Google has analysed thousands of mammograms with a specialized AI system. The program can find the disease in breast tissue more effectively than radiologists. The technology is still in the testing phase.

Chatbots to help customers

Juniper Research says that companies can save about $7 million if they replace employees with chatbots for customer care. But the figure can also easily go up to $439 million in a few years.

Virtual travel agents

Tourism is another sector that uses data and information to offer an increasingly personalized service to the user. Companies like Destinia have already begun to use chatbots for travel reservations.

Alexa

The virtual assistant developed by the giant Amazon has several abilities, from maintaining a dialogue with the user to controlling other devices such as television, lights or appliances.

IA and Blockchain

Blockchain is a Distributed Database that keeps a permanent and tamper-proof record of transactions. It is the technological basis of cryptocurrencies. The company SingularityNET has combined Blockchain with Artificial Intelligence to develop a more effective system that can consult and monetize data for the benefit of the user.

AI in astronomy

A special 3D simulation model of the universe, using Artificial Intelligence, was created in 2019 at the Flatiron Institute (USA). Having been trained with more than 8,000 simulations from previous models, the algorithm was able to offer correct results with data that it did not even know, which surprised even the scientists responsible for its creation.

Music composer

Amadeus Code is an Artificial Intelligence program that uses data from thousands of successful songs to compose first-rate lyrics and melodies.

AI in gestational diabetes control

Researchers from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain) have developed a tool with a glucose meter that can analyse the monitoring data of pregnant women and make recommendations for their treatment. The technology was tested with 112 women, who could thereby significantly reduce their visits to the doctor.

Virtual Heart

V-Heart SN is the name of the cardiac computational model that nine universities and research centers are developing in Spain. The technology adapts to the characteristics of each patient to create more effective personalized treatments.

IMB Q System One

In January 2019, IBM presented the world's first quantum computer whose access (via the IBM Cloud) will be sold to interested companies. Until then, the technology only existed inside Microsoft and Google laboratories. Quantum computers have the ability to process complex data, which helps them transform entire industries, from aerospace to health.

AI to discover new drugs

Currently, startups such as BenevolentAI and TwoXar, in addition to IBM's IA Watson, are responsible for creating software that uses Artificial intelligence in the area of pharmacological research. The technology increases the chances of finding new drugs in less time than in a laboratory.

Self-organizing agenda

Woven is a developing app that synchronizes users' calendars and emails to plan events and organize schedules, including travel time. Its creators are two former Facebook employees who have already raised $4.8 million to fund the project.
