AI being used to better predict harmful algal blooms in SW Florida
Soon water managers could have a new tool to battle harmful algal blooms like red tide. That tool is artificial intelligence. Researchers at the University of Florida are using AI to forecast 14-day outlooks for harmful blooms. Those forecasts can then be used to stop or slow an algae bloom.
Leveraging artificial intelligence to improve patient safety and care quality
The UF College of Medicine is turning to AI to improve patient safety and care quality with an initiative called AI-QI, a series of programs designed to make a tangible impact in the realm of patient care by extending AI research into quality improvement activities at UF Health.
The centerpiece of UF's AI initiative is the most powerful university-owned supercomputer in the U.S., which was made possible by the generosity of NVIDIA and NVIDIA co-founder and UF alumnus Chris Malachowsky.
NVIDIA is the world leader in the development of processors that were originally designed for displaying realistic graphics. These processors are called GPU for graphics processor units. It was then found that these GPUs are also great for advanced scientific simulation and more recently that they are even better at performing the computing for AI tools and algorithms.
