AI can diagnose breast cancer more accurately than a doctor can

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence can diagnose breast cancer more accurately than trained doctors, a study suggests. The research on almost 30,000 women who underwent screening found a computer programme could reduce the number of cases missed by more than two thirds. Researchers said the algorithmdeveloped by Imperial College London, Northwestern University in Chicago and Google Health was a "huge advance" in early detection of cancers. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in the UK, affecting around one in eight women - with 55,000 diagnoses annually and 11,000 deaths. Experts said the breakthrough could save thousands of lives, by finding deadly tumours that would otherwise go undetected.


STREETS: A Novel Camera Network Dataset for Traffic Flow

Neural Information Processing Systems

In this paper, we introduce STREETS, a novel traffic flow dataset from publicly available web cameras in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. We seek to address the limitations of existing datasets in this area. Many such datasets lack a coherent traffic network graph to describe the relationship between sensors. The datasets that do provide a graph depict traffic flow in urban population centers or highway systems and use costly sensors like induction loops. These contexts differ from that of a suburban traffic body.

AI Algorithm Predicts Weight Loss After Radiation for Head... : Oncology Times

#artificialintelligence

CHICAGO--An artificial intelligence machine-learning program has demonstrated the ability to accurately forecast which head and neck cancer patients are likely to experience severe weight loss, necessitating the use of a feeding tube, researchers at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston told attendees at the 2019 ASTRO Annual Meeting (Abstract 141). It marks the first time that such a sophisticated "self-teaching" computer algorithm has accurately identified patients likely to develop problems eating, said Jay Reddy, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology and lead author of the study. "With head and neck radiation, a lot of toxicity occurs; however it's not always clear which patients will experience serious side effects," he told a press conference. Reddy and his colleagues used machine learning models to analyze large datasets from three sources--electronic health records, an internal web-based patient charting tool, and the hospital's records and verification system--in an effort to discern and eventually predict patients with weight loss exceeding 10 percent of total body weight, the need for a feeding tube, and/or any unplanned hospitalization within 3 months of radiation. Machine learning is a relatively powerful application of artificial intelligence (AI)–think facial recognition software--by which a computer program can automatically learn and improve itself by analyzing large quantities of data.


Study finds Google system could improve breast cancer detection - Reuters

#artificialintelligence

CHICAGO (Reuters) - A Google artificial intelligence system proved as good as expert radiologists at detecting which women had breast cancer based on screening mammograms and showed promise at reducing errors, researchers in the United States and Britain reported. The study, published in the journal Nature on Wednesday, is the latest to show that artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to improve the accuracy of screening for breast cancer, which affects one in eight women globally. Radiologists miss about 20% of breast cancers in mammograms, the American Cancer Society says, and half of all women who get the screenings over a 10-year period have a false positive result. The findings of the study, developed with Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) DeepMind AI unit, which merged with Google Health in September, represent a major advance in the potential for the early detection of breast cancer, Mozziyar Etemadi, one of its co-authors from Northwestern Medicine in Chicago, said. The team, which included researchers at Imperial College London and Britain's National Health Service, trained the system to identify breast cancers on tens of thousands of mammograms.


Rise of #MeTooBots: scientists develop AI to detect harassment in emails

The Guardian

Artificial intelligence programmers are developing bots that can identify digital bullying and sexual harassment. Known as "#MeTooBots" after the high-profile movement that arose after allegations against the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, the bots can monitor and flag communications between colleagues and are being introduced by companies around the world. Bot-makers say it is not easy to teach computers what harassment looks like, with its linguistic subtleties and grey lines. Jay Leib, the chief executive of the Chicago-based AI firm NexLP, said: "I wasn't aware of all the forms of harassment. I thought it was just talking dirty. It comes in so many different ways. It might be 15 messages … it could be racy photos."
