The USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society is transforming public health by calibrating real-life, human intervention
Do you have that friend you go out with to indulge on all the scrumptious and unhealthy delicacies L.A. has to offer? Or how about that other friend that eats organic and always makes you feel like an unhealthy chicken nugget?
Chances are you have both – you’re also probably one of them.
Our peers, specifically our human social networks, have a lot of influence when it comes to our lifestyle...
USC Professor Milind Tambe has been working on AI-based security solutions since 2007. Now he wants to apply that knowledge to help society, from climate change to gang violence.

If you're a fan of heist movies like The Italian Job, you're familiar with the scene where the bad guys gather around a map, and the kingpin says something like: "The guards do a security patrol at 05:30 hours. Synchronize your watches. We'll enter here at 05:47 hours. Fingers will disable the alarm before Maxi and her team enter the building via the roof."...
Communicable diseases represent a critical challenge for resource-strapped public health infrastructures worldwide. As evidenced by the outbreaks of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2003, influenza A H1N1 (or “swine flu”) in 2009, Ebola and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) in 2014, and the Zika virus in 2016, infectious diseases can spread rapidly within countries and across national borders. In China alone, the ...
An algorithm developed at the University of Southern California could help public health outreach campaigns better locate and treat people living with undiagnosed infectious diseases such as tuberculosis and gonorrhea.
Researchers from the USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society used data—including behavioral, demographic and epidemic trends—to create a novel model of disease spread that both captures the underlying population dynamics and contact patterns between people.
“While there are many methods to identify patient populations for...
LOS ANGELES: Scientists have developed a new artificial intelligence (AI) system that can help prevent the spread of infectious diseases such as tuberculosis in India more effectively than public outreach campaigns.
Poaching is a major problem for wildlife preserves. While these organisations are struggling to protect animals on the verge of extinction, poachers do whatever they can to sneak in and kill them for immediate gains, usually something as stupid as an animal’s coat, horn or other body parts.
Now, researchers from the University of Southern California Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society are using AI to spot these illegal hunters in near-real time and catch them before they can do harm.
Des chercheurs californiens ont conçu un algorithme capable de distinguer un animal d’un être humain sur une image de caméra thermique infrarouge. L’information est disponible en trois dixièmes de seconde.
