All the conventional medical approaches like Traditional analytics, or clinical decision-making mechanisms, have a variety of detriments when compared to AI. With a lot of data pumping in AI is on the optimal flank as learning algorithms interact with this data regularly, they can evolve more comprehensive and true, giving people unparalleled insights into care procedures, treatment variability, patient outcomes and diagnosis etc.

How does AI complement Healthcare support?

Because of its substantial role in a productive and healthy society, healthcare is one of the most integral areas. The use of AI in healthcare can mean the antagonism between life and death. Doctors, nurses, and other healthcare personnel can boost from artificial intelligence in their regular jobs. 

AI in healthcare has the potential to enhance patient health outcomes by enhancing preventative care and quality of life, as well as enabling more precise diagnosis and treatment. AI can assist in the prediction and tracking of the spread of dangerous diseases by assessing data from the government, healthcare, and other sources. It can be a vital tool in the global fight against diseases and pandemics.

Use cases of AI in the medical industry 

The following are six areas where AI's potential exceeds that of traditional therapeutic methods.

Keeping Well: AI assists individuals to stay healthy so they don't need to see a doctor as often, if at all. AI and the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) are already being used in consumer health apps to motivate healthier behavior and assist with proactive management of a healthy lifestyle. It entitles patients to take charge of their health and well-being.

Decision Making: Predictive analytics can help in quick clinical decision-making and actions, as well as to improve treatment by aligning ample health data and with suitable and timely judgements it can prioritize size administrative activities.

Treatment: AI can assist doctors in taking a more holistic strategy for illness management, better-coordinating care plans, and assisting patients in managing and adhering to long-term treatment programs.

Early detection: AI is already being used to diagnose illnesses more specifically and in the initial stages. Such as in cancer, a large percentage of mammograms provide disingenuous findings, resulting in one out of every two healthy women being diagnosed with cancer. AI is allowing mammograms to be reviewed and translated 30 times quicker with 99 percent accuracy, curtailing the need for needless biopsies.

Diagnosis: It enables healthcare companies to use cognitive technology to unlock massive volumes of health data. There are technologies that can evaluate and retain considerably more medical data than any person, including every medical publication, symptom, and case study of therapy and reaction from around the world. 

End-of-life care: In elderly people, loneliness is a common occurrence and as they begin to age more, dying illnesses such as dementia, heart failure, and osteoporosis become common. AI has the potential to transform end-of-life care (care of the elderly) by allowing patients to be independent for extended periods, decreasing the need for hospitalization and care facilities. AI, paired with developments in humanoid design, is allowing robots to hold 'conversations' and other social interactions with people to keep aging minds strong.

Future of AI in healthcare- 

The most arduous impediment for AI in healthcare is convincing its acceptance in daily clinical practice. Clinicians may eventually gravitate towards activities that require specialized human abilities, such as those that require the highest degree of cognitive function. 

Perhaps in the future, the only healthcare practitioners who will miss out on AI's full potential are those who refuse to collaborate with it.

What would a future where AI is integrated with every sector of the healthcare sector look like? 

Below are some of the hypotheses that researchers and scholars believe would help the healthcare industry in gaining more trust and in being more reliable.

Mind and Machine unification through brain-computer interfaces: Because of neurological illness and injury to the nervous system, some patients' abilities to talk, move, and connect meaningfully with others can be taken away. Artificial intelligence-assisted brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) may help in restoring such essential experiences to individuals who worry they may be lost forever. We can decode the neurological activities linked with the intended motion of one's hand using a BCI and artificial intelligence. Patients with ALS, strokes, or locked-in syndrome, as well as the 500,000 individuals worldwide who suffer spinal cord injuries each year, might aid extensively from the integration of AI and BCIs.

AI-enabled Radiology Tools: MRI machines, CT scanners, and x-rays provide radiological pictures that provide non-invasive insight into the inner workings of the body. Many diagnostic procedures, however, still rely on actual tissue samples taken through biopsies, which come with dangers such as infection. Experts expect that artificial intelligence will allow the next generation of radiological instruments to be inclusive and factual enough to eliminate the requirement for tissue samples.

Expanding healthcare in formulating and poor regions: In developed countries across the globe, scarcity of qualified healthcare personnel, such as ultrasound technologists and radiologists, can severely limit access to life-saving care. By taking over some of the diagnostic duties that are traditionally handled by humans, artificial intelligence may be able to help mitigate the impacts of the considerable scarcity of competent clinical workers.

Artificial intelligence imaging techniques can scan chest x-rays for symptoms of TB with a degree of accuracy that is frequently equivalent to people. This capacity might be made available to physicians in low-resource locations via an app, eliminating the requirement for a diagnostic radiologist on site.

Advancing the use of Immunotherapy for cancer treatment: Immunotherapy is one of the most promising therapies for cancer treatment. Patients may be able to win against risky tumours by bombing them with their immune system. However, prevailing immunotherapy alternatives merely assist a microscopic percentage of patients, as oncologists still lack a valid and explicit approach for inferring which patients may profit from this treatment. 

AI and ML algorithms can synthesize very complex information and open up new avenues for tailoring medicines to a person's genetic composition.

Limiting the threat of antibiotic resistance: Antibiotic resistance is becoming an increasing hazard to people all over the world, as a result of the misuse of these life-saving drugs, superbugs exempt from antibiotics have emerged. Multidrug-resistant infections have the potential to wreak havoc in hospitals, killing hundreds of people every year.

Data from electronic health records can advance the detection of infection trends and the identification of people at risk before they develop symptoms. Using machine learning and AI to drive these analytics can augment their exactitude and give healthcare practitioners with faster, more accurate alerts. AI technologies can meet or exceed expectations in terms of infection management and antibiotic resistance.

Personal health monitoring devices: Almost every customer now has access to gadgets with sensors that may collect useful health information. A surging proportion of health-related data is created on the road, from cell phones with step trackers to wearables that can detect a heartbeat around the clock. Amassing and analyzing this information, via apps and other home monitoring devices, as well as complementing it with information supplied by patients, can provide a peculiar perspective on individual and population health. 

Artificial intelligence will be critical in extracting useful information from this huge data source.

Selfies as a Powerful diagnostic tool: Keeping with the theme of leveraging the potential of portable devices, experts feel that pictures acquired from cellphones and other consumer-grade sources will be a valuable addition to clinical quality imaging, particularly in underprivileged communities or developing countries. Every year, the quality of mobile phone cameras improves, and they can now provide photos that can be analyzed by artificial intelligence systems.


Stakeholders, healthcare experts & inventors are all itched about the potential of AI in the healthcare industry. In the coming time, AI will direct a new age of clinical excellence and exciting advancements in inpatient care by powering a new generation of tools and systems that make doctors more aware of subtleties, more efficient when giving treatment, and more likely to get ahead of developing issues.

The options are left to the imagination of the reader. But one thing seems certain: AI will pave the way for a prosperous and healthy future.

The problem with customer acquisition

As an organization, when working in a diverse and competitive market like India, you need to have a well-defined customer acquisition strategy to attain success. However, this is where most startups struggle. Now, you may have a great product or service, but if you are not in the right place targeting the right demographic, you are not likely to get the results you want.

To resolve this, typically, companies invest, but if that is not channelized properly, it will be futile.

So, the best way out of this dilemma is to have a clear customer acquisition strategy in place.

How can you create the ideal customer acquisition strategy for your business?

  • Define what your goals are

You need to define your goals so that you can meet the revenue expectations you have for the current fiscal year. You need to find a value for the metrics –

  • MRR – Monthly recurring revenue, which tells you all the income that can be generated from all your income channels.
  • CLV – Customer lifetime value tells you how much a customer is willing to spend on your business during your mutual relationship duration.  
  • CAC – Customer acquisition costs, which tells how much your organization needs to spend to acquire customers constantly.
  • Churn rate – It tells you the rate at which customers stop doing business.

All these metrics tell you how well you will be able to grow your business and revenue.

  • Identify your ideal customers

You need to understand who your current customers are and who your target customers are. Once you are aware of your customer base, you can focus your energies in that direction and get the maximum sale of your products or services.

Image-based 3D Object Reconstruction State-of-the-Art and trends in the Deep Learning Era

3D reconstruction is one of the most complex issues of deep learning systems. There have been multiple types of research in this field, and almost everything has been tried on it — computer vision, computer graphics and machine learning, but to no avail. However, that has resulted in CNN or convolutional neural networks foraying into this field, which has yielded some success.

The Main Objective of the 3D Object Reconstruction

Developing this deep learning technology aims to infer the shape of 3D objects from 2D images. So, to conduct the experiment, you need the following:

  • Highly calibrated cameras that take a photograph of the image from various angles.
  • Large training datasets can predict the geometry of the object whose 3D image reconstruction needs to be done. These datasets can be collected from a database of images, or they can be collected and sampled from a video.

By using the apparatus and datasets, you will be able to proceed with the 3D reconstruction from 2D datasets.

State-of-the-art Technology Used by the Datasets for the Reconstruction of 3D Objects

The technology used for this purpose needs to stick to the following parameters:

  • Input

Training with the help of one or multiple RGB images, where the segmentation of the 3D ground truth needs to be done. It could be one image, multiple images or even a video stream.

The testing will also be done on the same parameters, which will also help to create a uniform, cluttered background, or both.

  • Output

The volumetric output will be done in both high and low resolution, and the surface output will be generated through parameterisation, template deformation and point cloud. Moreover, the direct and intermediate outputs will be calculated this way.

  • Network architecture used

The architecture used in training is 3D-VAE-GAN, which has an encoder and a decoder, with TL-Net and conditional GAN. At the same time, the testing architecture is 3D-VAE, which has an encoder and a decoder.

  • Training used

The degree of supervision used in 2D vs 3D supervision, weak supervision along with loss functions have to be included in this system. The training procedure is adversarial training with joint 2D and 3D embeddings. Also, the network architecture is extremely important for the speed and processing quality of the output images.

  • Practical applications and use cases

Volumetric representations and surface representations can do the reconstruction. Powerful computer systems need to be used for reconstruction.

Given below are some of the places where 3D Object Reconstruction Deep Learning Systems are used:

  • 3D reconstruction technology can be used in the Police Department for drawing the faces of criminals whose images have been procured from a crime site where their faces are not completely revealed.
  • It can be used for re-modelling ruins at ancient architectural sites. The rubble or the debris stubs of structures can be used to recreate the entire building structure and get an idea of how it looked in the past.
  • They can be used in plastic surgery where the organs, face, limbs or any other portion of the body has been damaged and needs to be rebuilt.
  • It can be used in airport security, where concealed shapes can be used for guessing whether a person is armed or is carrying explosives or not.
  • It can also help in completing DNA sequences.

So, if you are planning to implement this technology, then you can rent the required infrastructure from E2E Networks and avoid investing in it. And if you plan to learn more about such topics, then keep a tab on the blog section of the website

A Comprehensive Guide To Deep Q-Learning For Data Science Enthusiasts

For all data science enthusiasts who would love to dig deep, we have composed a write-up about Q-Learning specifically for you all. Deep Q-Learning and Reinforcement learning (RL) are extremely popular these days. These two data science methodologies use Python libraries like TensorFlow 2 and openAI’s Gym environment.

So, read on to know more.

What is Deep Q-Learning?

Deep Q-Learning utilizes the principles of Q-learning, but instead of using the Q-table, it uses the neural network. The algorithm of deep Q-Learning uses the states as input and the optimal Q-value of every action possible as the output. The agent gathers and stores all the previous experiences in the memory of the trained tuple in the following order:

State> Next state> Action> Reward

The neural network training stability increases using a random batch of previous data by using the experience replay. Experience replay also means the previous experiences stocking, and the target network uses it for training and calculation of the Q-network and the predicted Q-Value. This neural network uses openAI Gym, which is provided by taxi-v3 environments.

Now, any understanding of Deep Q-Learning   is incomplete without talking about Reinforcement Learning.

What is Reinforcement Learning?

Reinforcement is a subsection of ML. This part of ML is related to the action in which an environmental agent participates in a reward-based system and uses Reinforcement Learning to maximize the rewards. Reinforcement Learning is a different technique from unsupervised learning or supervised learning because it does not require a supervised input/output pair. The number of corrections is also less, so it is a highly efficient technique.

Now, the understanding of reinforcement learning is incomplete without knowing about Markov Decision Process (MDP). MDP is involved with each state that has been presented in the results of the environment, derived from the state previously there. The information which composes both states is gathered and transferred to the decision process. The task of the chosen agent is to maximize the awards. The MDP optimizes the actions and helps construct the optimal policy.

For developing the MDP, you need to follow the Q-Learning Algorithm, which is an extremely important part of data science and machine learning.

What is Q-Learning Algorithm?

The process of Q-Learning is important for understanding the data from scratch. It involves defining the parameters, choosing the actions from the current state and also choosing the actions from the previous state and then developing a Q-table for maximizing the results or output rewards.

The 4 steps that are involved in Q-Learning:

  1. Initializing parameters – The RL (reinforcement learning) model learns the set of actions that the agent requires in the state, environment and time.
  2. Identifying current state – The model stores the prior records for optimal action definition for maximizing the results. For acting in the present state, the state needs to be identified and perform an action combination for it.
  3. Choosing the optimal action set and gaining the relevant experience – A Q-table is generated from the data with a set of specific states and actions, and the weight of this data is calculated for updating the Q-Table to the following step.
  4. Updating Q-table rewards and next state determination – After the relevant experience is gained and agents start getting environmental records. The reward amplitude helps to present the subsequent step.  

In case the Q-table size is huge, then the generation of the model is a time-consuming process. This situation requires Deep Q-learning.

Hopefully, this write-up has provided an outline of Deep Q-Learning and its related concepts. If you wish to learn more about such topics, then keep a tab on the blog section of the E2E Networks website.

GAUDI: A Neural Architect for Immersive 3D Scene Generation

The evolution of artificial intelligence in the past decade has been staggering, and now the focus is shifting towards AI and ML systems to understand and generate 3D spaces. As a result, there has been extensive research on manipulating 3D generative models. In this regard, Apple’s AI and ML scientists have developed GAUDI, a method specifically for this job.

An introduction to GAUDI

The GAUDI 3D immersive technique founders named it after the famous architect Antoni Gaudi. This AI model takes the help of a camera pose decoder, which enables it to guess the possible camera angles of a scene. Hence, the decoder then makes it possible to predict the 3D canvas from almost every angle.

What does GAUDI do?

GAUDI can perform multiple functions –

  • The extensions of these generative models have a tremendous effect on ML and computer vision. Pragmatically, such models are highly useful. They are applied in model-based reinforcement learning and planning world models, SLAM is s, or 3D content creation.
  • Generative modelling for 3D objects has been used for generating scenes using graf, pigan, and gsn, which incorporate a GAN (Generative Adversarial Network). The generator codes radiance fields exclusively. Using the 3D space in the scene along with the camera pose generates the 3D image from that point. This point has a density scalar and RGB value for that specific point in 3D space. This can be done from a 2D camera view. It does this by imposing 3D datasets on those 2D shots. It isolates various objects and scenes and combines them to render a new scene altogether.
  • GAUDI also removes GANs pathologies like mode collapse and improved GAN.
  • GAUDI also uses this to train data on a canonical coordinate system. You can compare it by looking at the trajectory of the scenes.

How is GAUDI applied to the content?

The steps of application for GAUDI have been given below:

  • Each trajectory is created, which consists of a sequence of posed images (These images are from a 3D scene) encoded into a latent representation. This representation which has a radiance field or what we refer to as the 3D scene and the camera path is created in a disentangled way. The results are interpreted as free parameters. The problem is optimized by and formulation of a reconstruction objective.
  • This simple training process is then scaled to trajectories, thousands of them creating a large number of views. The model samples the radiance fields totally from the previous distribution that the model has learned.
  • The scenes are thus synthesized by interpolation within the hidden space.
  • The scaling of 3D scenes generates many scenes that contain thousands of images. During training, there is no issue related to canonical orientation or mode collapse.
  • A novel de-noising optimization technique is used to find hidden representations that collaborate in modelling the camera poses and the radiance field to create multiple datasets with state-of-the-art performance in generating 3D scenes by building a setup that uses images and text.

To conclude, GAUDI has more capabilities and can also be used for sampling various images and video datasets. Furthermore, this will make a foray into AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality). With GAUDI in hand, the sky is only the limit in the field of media creation.
