BBC News

This was a missing person mystery that held Australia spellbound, writes Trevor Marshallsea. The Tromp family were by all accounts a normal, hard-working household. Mark Tromp, 51, and wife Jacoba, 53, had established a successful redcurrant farm and earth-moving business at their property in Silvan, on the outskirts of the Victorian capital, Melbourne. But with little warning, on Monday 29 August they and their three adult children - Riana, 29, Mitchell, 25, and Ella 22 - got into a car and headed north. They didn't just leave their family farm, they had fled.


Machine Learning And The Future Of Healthcare

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence has been around for quite some time and its potential to transform our lives has been frequently debated. Powered by the growth of abilities in computational hardware and related algorithm development, AI research programs have ebbed and flowed. The use of AI in healthcare in India is steadily increasing with new startups and large ICT companies providing AI solutions to combat healthcare challenges in the country. The companies are offering a broad scope of solutions including automation of medical diagnosis, automated analysis of medical tests, detection and screening of diseases, wearable sensor based medical devices and monitoring equipment, patient management systems, predictive healthcare diagnosis and disease prevention. A challenge has been cited quite often while developing these solutions.


Surgical robots, new medicines and better care: 32 examples of AI in healthcare

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence simplifies the lives of patients, doctors and hospital administrators by performing tasks that are typically done by humans, but in less time and at a fraction of the cost. One of the world's highest-growth industries, the AI sector was valued at about $600 million in 2014 and is projected to reach a $150 billion by 2026. Whether it's used to find new links between genetic codes or to drive surgery-assisting robots, artificial intelligence is reinventing -- and reinvigorating -- modern healthcare through machines that can predict, comprehend, learn and act. Check out these 32 examples of AI in healthcare. In 2015, misdiagnosing illness and medical error accounted for 10% of all US deaths. In light of that, the promise of improving the diagnostic process is one of AI's most exciting healthcare applications.


Your future doctor may not be human. This is the rise of AI in medicine.

#artificialintelligence

A new kind of doctor has entered the exam room, but doesn't have a name. In fact, these doctors don't even have faces. Artificial intelligence has made its way into hospitals around the world. Those wary of a robot takeover have nothing to fear; the introduction of AI into health care is not necessarily about pitting human minds against machines. AI is in the exam room to expand, sharpen, and at times ease the mind of the physician so that doctors are able to do the same for their patients.
