Automated Deep Learning in Healthcare

2019 10 Sep

Physicians' expertise is founded on medical science and many of them may not have much familiarity with artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, now fast becoming "de rigueur" in medical practice. But, thanks to automated deep learning, even clinicians that aren’t experts in AI may be able to create AI algorithms that can help them with early detection... Read more

New AI tool predicts breast cancer risk

2019 07 May

Identifying women at risk for breast cancer is a critical component of effective early disease detection . Available models that use factors such as family history and genetics are inadequate in predicting an individual woman's likelihood of being diagnosed with the disease. Researchers from two major institutions have developed a new... Read more
