Youth In AI: Taylor Rayne

It is the far-reaching applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence that I intend to explore at the intersections of synthetic and computational biology, control engineering, and nanobiotechnology. This fall I am entering my second year at Quest University, where I am majoring in structural biophysics. My goal is to one day combine insights from my major to design AI systems for innovative medical treatments and techniques.

Should Artificial Intelligence Be Regulated?

Artificial Intelligence is rapidly taking over our daily lives. AI-driven algorithms have evolved from simple and niche tools to vast and comprehensive technologies that have already transformed the transportation industry and improved the way we detect and deal with mental health issues, among other advances. But some scientists and experts are raising important concerns over whether there ought to be a limit to how powerful AI becomes. They ask questions about how companies and governments use AI. And, more specifically, they want to know how these increasingly powerful technologies will affect us.

Enlist AI to Provide Vaccinations for All

The vaccine rollout, to date, has been anything but orderly. Each state sets its own parameters for eligibility and has to contend with limited supplies or limited storage. Vaccines are lost, go bad, or are administered to people in the wrong order — say, your healthy niece got one before your elderly father.

Facial Recognition and How it Works

Facial recognition seems like the stuff of science fiction. Technology that’s capable of identifying a human face from a photograph or video and matching it from among hundreds of millions of other faces stored in a database of faces—if that doesn’t sound futuristic, we don’t know what does.
