Federated Learning (FL) has become a paradigm-shifting technology in AI, allowing data scientists to work with private data. In comparison to the standard machine learning approach, where all the individual client data must be collected and moved to a centralized server, with the Federated Learning approach, model training can be done directly on the clients […]

Diffusion Models: A New Horizon in Image Generation

As the curtain fell on last year, most conversations about generative AI in public forums and the media orbited around text generation, with names like chatGPT stealing the limelight. But the reality is that the transformative power of Artificial Intelligence, spearheaded by deep learning, extends far beyond the realm of words. A standout example is […]

How Satellite Images help to detect the Severity of Wildfires

Wildfires lead to changes to our ecosystems and can have serious social and economic impacts. In the last few years, the number of wildfires is believed to have increased due to a change in the climate which brings prolonged periods of drought [1]. In Switzerland, wildfires are predominately occurring in the alpine regions of the cantons […]

A Medical Decision System to Prescribe Antibiotics

Adverse drug reactions lead to deaths in the healthcare system, especially the ones linked to antibiotic prescriptions. In order to reduce and prevent these, researchers at BFH have programmed a semantic decision-making system that supports doctors in their decisions alongside the usual guidelines. Our author reports here on the tool and compares it with the pure […]
