This is a fantastic interactive website that allows you to view numerous meteor show formations within the solar system. You can even zoom in and move around, i.e. space travel! :-p

AI Finds Waldo

U.S. creative agency RedPepper has built a Raspberry Pi powered robot arm with AI image recognition which can successfully find Waldo. The system uses OpenCV to extract the faces from the image and Google Auto ML Vision cloud service to match the faces to Waldo model. No word as of yet on whether Waldo's British older brother Wally has escaped the robot overlords :-p

Researchers have used machine learning and AI to identify a brain signal model that characterises Fibromyalgia, despite the some doctors believing that Fibromyalgia does not exist. The signature model can be used for assessing therapeutic mechanisms and predicting treatment response at an individual patient level.
