    How Artificial Intelligence Is Making Nuclear Reactors Safer

    Artificial intelligence continues to benefit us everyday. I know Elon thinks it's going to kill us off, but for now it's making nuclear reactors safer by helping to detect cracks in nuclear reactors. As long as AI can do stuff like that for us I'm completely fine with it. If Skynet arises...

    Using artificial intelligence to improve early breast cancer detection

    Did you know over 40,000 women die from breast cancer every year? The researchers at MIT want to do something about that and have developed an AI system to improve diagnosis and detection of the cancer while it is in an early stage. Not only do they want to detect it early, but reduce the risk...
