Machine learning will help to grow artificial organs – IAM Network


Akbar Solo Researchers in Moscow and America have discovered how to use machine learning to grow artificial organs, especially to tackle blindness Researchers from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Ivannikov Institute for System Programming, and the Harvard Medical School-affiliated Schepens Eye Research Institute have developed a neural network capable of recognizing retinal tissues during the process of their differentiation in a dish. Unlike humans, the algorithm achieves this without the need to modify cells, making the method suitable for growing retinal tissue for developing cell replacement therapies to treat blindness and conducting research into new drugs. The study was published in Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience. How would this enable easier organ growth? This would allow to expand the applications of the technology for multiple fields including the drug discovery and development of cell replacement therapies to treat blindnessIn multicellular organisms, the cells making up different organs and tissues are not the same.
