When Antibiotics Fail: MIT Scientists Use AI To Target “Sleeper” Bacteria

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health, robotics/AI

Most antibiotics target metabolically active bacteria, but with artificial intelligence, researchers can efficiently screen compounds that are lethal to dormant microbes.

Since the 1970s, modern antibiotic discovery has been experiencing a lull. Now the World Health Organization has declared the antimicrobial resistance crisis as one of the top 10 global public health threats.

When an infection is treated repeatedly, clinicians run the risk of bacteria becoming resistant to the antibiotics. But why would an infection return after proper antibiotic treatment? One well-documented possibility is that the bacteria are becoming metabolically inert, escaping detection of traditional antibiotics that only respond to metabolic activity. When the danger has passed, the bacteria return to life and the infection reappears.

Probe3D: Study examines how well AI models understand the third dimension

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

A new study examines whether and how well multimodal AI models understand the 3D structure of scenes and objects.

Researchers from the University of Michigan and Google Research investigated the 3D awareness of multimodal models. The goal was to understand how well the representations learned by these models capture the 3D structure of our world.

According to the team, 3D awareness can be measured by two key capabilities: Can the models reconstruct the visible 3D surface from a single image, i.e., infer depth and surface information? Are the representations consistent across multiple views of the same object or scene?

Pro music video powered by OpenAI’s Sora released in a world-first

Posted by in categories: media & arts, robotics/AI

Trillo directed the Sora-powered video for the new single “The Hardest Part” by indie chillwave artist Washed Out (Ernest Weatherly Greene Jr.).

The video is 4 minutes long and has been created in a unique way. It is a long series of fast zooms through different scenes that are connected to feel like one continuous zoom.

While giving details about the video, Trillo posted on X that he had the idea for this video for a long time but couldn’t make it happen until now.
