AI can predict signs of a heart attack within a year -- from a routine eye test


An artificial intelligence system is capable of spotting whether someone will have a heart attack within the next year -- through a routine eye scan. A team from the University of Leeds believes this AI tool opens the door to a cheap and simple screening program for the world's number one killer. Their tests find the computer can predict patients at risk of a heart attack in the next 12 months with up to 80 percent accuracy. The breakthrough adds to evidence that our eyes are not just "windows to the soul," but windows to overall health as well. "Cardiovascular diseases, including heart attacks, are the leading cause of early death worldwide and the second-largest killer in the UK. This causes chronic ill-health and misery worldwide," project supervisor Professor Alex Frangi says in a university release.
