Want your own Terminator?
All you need is a Raspberry Pi, an open-source ML library...and a skull.
It's been a while since our last edition of Machine Learnings. We've been busy building, but we're back!
Since we were away, Heyday ranked as the #1 Product of the Day, Week, and Month on Product Hunt 😻.
In case you haven’t checked it out yet, Heyday is a browser extension that uses machine learning to automatically organize your research. If you find yourself switching between a dozen things a day, Heyday resurfaces the cream of the crop so you can stay on point.
We’d love to hear your feedback on it! Reply to this email or DM me if you have any thoughts on our launch or how we can make Heyday a better fit for you!
Awesome, not awesome.
Radiologists assisted by an AI screen for breast cancer more successfully than they do when they work alone, according to new research. That same AI also produces more accurate results in the hands of a radiologist than it does when operating solo.
“We often say that AI will not replace radiologists,” Langlotz says. “This study doesn’t change that, but in the proposed AI-driven process nearly three-quarters of the screening studies didn’t need to be reviewed by a radiologist, while improving accuracy overall.” That, he says, is “groundbreaking.”

Any new technology that might render the oceans effectively transparent, making it trivial to spot lurking submarines, could thus undermine the peace of the world.
And now the game of submarine hide-and-seek may be approaching the point at which submarines can no longer elude detection and simply disappear. It may come as early as 2050, according to a recent study by the National Security College of the Australian National University, in Canberra.
