What you need to know about artificial intelligence

The AI is getting smarter every day.

It can think for itself, read, write, create new products and create new jobs.

And we’re only just getting started.

AI researcher Prof John Coates has been monitoring the rise of artificial intelligence since 2015.

This week he published a research paper outlining the most important areas of AI research that are currently being undertaken.

The scientists create beagles that have double the amount of muscle mass by deleting a certain gene, reports the MIT Technology Review.

The mutant dogs have “more muscles and are expected to have stronger running ability, which is good for hunting, police (military) applications”, Liangxue Lai, one of the researchers on the project.

Now the team hope to go on to create other modified dogs, including those that are engineered to have human diseases like muscular dystrophy or Parkinson’s Dr Helen Clark, from Georgia Institute of Technology, said “We are incredibly excited about this work, which represents a significant advance in dog science and could have a profound impact on the future of dog science” 17/24 Research shows that diabetes drug can be used safely for older people with Type 2 diabetes A drug that could cut your risk of developing diabetes by a third has been found to reduce the risk of people developing Alzheimer’s disease (the most common form of dementia), according to researchers.

The drug developed by researchers at Harvard University and Pennsylvania State University shows promise in slowing cognitive decline in older people, who have more trouble keeping their blood sugar levels under control.

However, it finding comes with a warning: patients should not start using it first.

The study, published by the European Journal of Clinical Practice, has focused on psychological health services, and says patients often do not get evidence of problems earlier PA 19/24 There is ‘too much emphasis on quantity over quality’ in mental health professions The average Briton thinks mental health care should be about five times better than physical health, a survey has found.

A study from the University of Bristol found that while over half of health professionals believe that physical health is more important than mental health, this is only believed when there is a significant other in the relationship Getty Images 20/24 Sitting on a beach: What the science has to say About two-thirds of parents say they regularly sit on the beach, according to a new study.

Concern over group sitting has been documented in the media.

But, in fact, a 2017 survey from the charity Conflict is Rising found that 60 per cent of parents said they regularly group together for this activity Getty Images 21/24 What you can do to help the environment When you put the environment before profit, you make the world a less healthy place.

That’s the conclusion of scientists who studied the effects of industrial pollution on the environment Getty Images 22/24 We’re being eaten by sharks so are we?

A recent study has found that sightings of sharks in urban areas are on the rise, with numbers continuing to rise globally.
