Unveiling the 'Black Box': AI in Health and FDA Approval

The MIT Abdul Latif Jameel Clinic for Machine Learning in Health discussed whether the "black box" decision-making process of AI models should be fully explained for FDA approval. The event also highlighted the need for education, data availability, and collaboration between regulators and medical professionals in the regulation of AI in health.

Efficiently Solving Complex Physical Systems: The Power of Physics-Enhanced Deep Surrogates

Researchers at MIT and IBM have developed a new method called "physics-enhanced deep surrogate" (PEDS) that combines a low-fidelity physics simulator with a neural network generator to create data-driven surrogate models for complex physical systems. The PEDS method is affordable, efficient, and reduces the training data needed by at least a factor of 100 while achieving a target error of 5 per...

Revolutionizing Sustainable Innovation: Atacama Biomaterials' Journey

Atacama Biomaterials, a startup combining architecture, machine learning, and chemical engineering, develops eco-friendly materials with multiple applications. Their technology allows for the creation of data and material libraries using AI and ML, producing regionally sourced, compostable plastics and packaging.

Unlocking the Secrets of AI: Using AI Agents to Explain Complex Neural Networks

MIT researchers have developed an automated interpretability agent (AIA) that uses AI models to explain the behavior of neural networks, offering intuitive descriptions and code reproductions. The AIA actively participates in hypothesis formation, experimental testing, and iterative learning, refining its understanding of other systems in real time.

Unveiling the Impact of Context Windows on Transformer Models

The article discusses the importance of understanding context windows in Transformer training and usage, particularly with the rise of proprietary LLMs and techniques like RAG. It explores how different factors affect the maximum context length a transformer model can process and questions whether bigger is always better.

Create Your Own Custom AI Assistant with OpenAI GPT: A Step-by-Step Guide

OpenAI has released an easy-to-use web tool to create custom AI assistants without coding, requiring only a Google or Microsoft account and a $20/month OpenAI Plus subscription.
