Google DeepMind AI speeds up search for disease genes

Google DeepMind AI speeds up search for disease genes

Health & Wellbeing, Science & Technology
Google's AI firm DeepMind has used artificial intelligence to identify changes in human DNA that might cause diseases. The researchers believe they have pinpointed 89% of all the key mutations. The development is expected to speed up diagnosis and help in the search for better treatments. A leading independent scientist told BBC News that the work was "a big step forward". Prof Ewan Birney, deputy director general of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, said: "It will help clinical researchers prioritise where to look to find areas that could cause disease." The technique works by checking the order of the components in human DNA strands. All living organisms are built from DNA. It is made from four blocks of chemicals called adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G) ...
Google tests watermark to identify AI images

Google tests watermark to identify AI images

International, Science & Technology
Google is trialling a digital watermark to spot images made by artificial intelligence (AI) in a bid to fight disinformation. Developed by DeepMind, Google’s AI arm, SynthID will identify images generated by machines. It works by embedding changes to individual pixels in images so watermarks are invisible to the human eye but detectable by computers. But DeepMind said it is not “foolproof against extreme image manipulation”. As the technology evolves, it is becoming increasingly more complex to tell the difference between real images and artificially-generated ones – as BBC Bitesize’s AI or Real quiz shows. AI image generators have become mainstream, with the popular tool Midjourney boasting more than 14.5m users. They allow people to create images in seconds b...
Google’s ChatGPT rival Bard launches in Europe and Brazil

Google’s ChatGPT rival Bard launches in Europe and Brazil

International, Science & Technology
Google’s parent company Alphabet is rolling out its artificial intelligence chatbot Bard in Europe and Brazil. It is the product’s biggest expansion since its March launch in the US and the UK and heats up the rivalry with Microsoft’s ChatGPT. Both are examples of generative AI that can respond to questions in a human-like way. Bard’s launch in the EU had been held up after the main data regulator in the bloc raised privacy concerns. The Irish Data Protection Commission said that the tech giant had not provided enough information about how its generative AI tool protects Europeans’ privacy to justify an EU launch. The company said it has since met the watchdogs to reassure them on issues relating to transparency, choice and control. In a briefing with journalists, Amar S...
