Artificial Intelligence

An artificial intelligence (AI) system designed by Google's DeepMind and London researchers can diagnose eye disease as accurately as some experts, according to a report by the BBC.
MIT researchers are using an artificial intelligence (AI) model that would help determine the correct drug dosage and, in turn, reduce debilitating side effects for brain cancer patients.
A new center at the University of California, Irvine is working to better serve patients and healthcare providers by using artificial intelligence (AI).
Predicting epileptic seizures is closer to becoming a reality, thanks to the crowdsourcing of thousands of algorithms worldwide. According to a study by University of Melbourne researchers, clinically relevant seizure predictions are now possible after researchers collected more than 10,000 algorithms during a contest in 2016.
As machine learning in dermatology begins to take off, researchers should remember to include all skin types when developing algorithms for identifying skin cancer, according to an Aug. 1 viewpoint published in JAMA.
Researchers developed artificial intelligence (AI) software to identify colorectal tumor in histology images.
The global market for artificial intelligence (AI) in medical imaging is expected to see significant growth in the years ahead, topping $2 billion by 2023, according to a new report from Signify Research.
New research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) suggests a physician's intuition—or, in other words, gut feeling—about a patient’s condition significantly influences the amount of diagnostic imaging, which is well above the capabilities of artificial intelligence (AI).
Watson, IBM’s highly touted artificial intelligence (AI) platform, might not be ready to make its rounds, according to an investigative report from STAT. The news outlet reviewed internal IBM documents that showed Watson often recommended unsafe treatment advice and incorrect recommendations, all while IBM was promoting the AI product to healthcare providers.
The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and World Health Organization (WHO) are converging for the global expansion of the use of artificial intelligence (AI) “to advance health for all worldwide.”
Artificial intelligence (AI) is proving valuable across the healthcare spectrum—from helping radiologists screen for disease to predicting difficulties during surgery. Researchers now hope the cutting-edge technology could safeguard public health by monitoring large-scale water treatment operations.
Guerbet announced Tuesday, July 10, that it has signed an exclusive agreement to collaborate with IBM Watson Health and develop artificial intelligence (AI) software solutions that help detect, diagnose and treat liver cancer.
An artificial intelligence (AI) system defeated a team of 15 doctors, 2-0, in two rounds of a competition that looked at the ability to diagnose brain tumors and predict the expansion of brain hematomas.
It’s long past asking “if” artificial intelligence (AI) and related technologies will revolutionize healthcare. According to a recent survey, 80 percent of executives expect AI will be integrated into the patient experience within two years. At the same time, 81 percent of respondents agree their organizations are not ready for the societal and liability issues that will result from this change.
The American Medical Association (AMA) has passed a policy addressing "augmented intelligence"—and not "artificial intelligence"—that provides recommendations for stakeholders' concerns.
