Depression can be much more simply bouts of sadness and hopelessness, it can be a harrowing abyss that leaves its victims with nothing but a persistent despondency throughout everyday life. Hence, it is important that depression is clinically diagnosed and treated to give patients the best possible chance of recovering, learn how artificial intelligence can help diagnose depression with speed and ease.
Babylon Health, a start up based primarily in the UK, hopes to widen the accessibility of healthcare in the greater world through the opportunities that artificial intelligence based systems provide. With significant support with giants such as Centene investing into their rapidly growing business, read on to see why Babylon Health could potentially become the ‘next big thing’ for healthcare.
The NHS has just been granted £250 million in a bid to set up an artificial intelligence lab, that will be under supervision by the newly formed NHSX organisation who aims to oversee the digital implementation of technology into the NHS. Read on to see how your local hospital could change under the glorious allure of AI!
Atrial fibrillation is a condition affecting more than 1.2 million people in the country, and a leading cause of concern due to the difficulties in detecting it, given its ‘come-and-go’ nature. However, researchers have claimed to be able to detect atrial fibrillation from a 10-second ECG when the patient is in sinus rhythm (i.e when the heart is out of atrial fibrillation)… Quite a statement, but when it has an accuracy of 83%, all we can do is stare in wonder as our technologies set a new standard in an increasing demanding environment of Healthcare.
Many subjects and areas of academic interest have large collections of research papers. Read on to find out how AI can help discover new concepts and ideas from this and go further than any human could.
In my articles, we consistently delve into what artificial intelligence can achieve for patients, but note the key term; ‘could’. Hence, today we look into what artificial intelligence has achieved for patients, ultimately the theory is written for its implementation. To be frank, to evaluate the effectiveness of a solution, it makes a great deal of sense to assess what the solution has achieved outright, than what it ‘could’ achieve. Now, let’s see how AI has played a part in medical practise.
Artificial General Intelligence is an AI to rule them all. Capable of thinking like an actual human with the capacity to complete a limitless amount of tasks. Find out how OpenAI is finding its way to this dream.
DeepMind and UCL are back at it! This time, we will look at an interesting process called ‘segmentation’ in interpreting scans of head and neck cancers, and how artificial intelligence could speed this up to provide true ‘adaptive radiotherapy’… The future looks bright indeed!
A group of Israeli researchers have been developing new AI technology that can be used to enhance, edit and complete single images. Find out more about how this works and what this could mean for the future.
Artificial intelligence could help resolve the contested authorship of The Beatles’ songs that were written by the Paul McCartney and John Lennon partnership by identifying each musician’s unique “musical fingerprint”.
The UCL Institute of Neurology has began a pioneering efforts into assessing the application of Artificial Intelligence in assessing responses to treatment for multiple sclerosis. Similar to pharmacogenics, this could be revolutionary in other areas of patient treatment, leading to a better healthcare for all. Read on to find out more!
Antimicrobial resistance is the ‘next big thing’ when it comes to dangers for humanity, but could machine learning techniques within artificial intelligence hold to limit this spread. Happily, noble institutions such as the University College London and the Great Ormond Street Hospital have been quick to get involved.
