IBM's AI Is Improving Healthcare By Advancing Cancer, Schizophrenia Research

International Business Times

A team of researchers from the University of Alberta, Canada and tech giant IBM has developed artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms, which can diagnose schizophrenia by studying the blood flow of the brain. The study of the human brain has been a challenging medical field, especially brain related ailments such as Schizophrenia. The team behind the research also aims to employ the algorithm in research for other diseases such as Huntington's disease, and provide a better insight into a brain afflicted with them. The company's AI software called Watson is being employed in genomics research for cancer.

AI and Predictive Analytics in Healthcare - DZone AI


A few years ago, I wrote about a fascinating Italian project to use mobile phone data to predict the onset of bipolar disorder. It isn't the only work utilizing AI to help those with bipolar disorder, as a recent paper from the University of Cincinnati outlined an approach to accurately predict treatment outcomes by using AI. The authors suggest that existing models of treatment predict the response to lithium treatment with an accuracy of no more than 75%. The Australian research team used the kind of AI algorithms that underpin many modern dating sites to try and improve organ acceptance and ensure a more accurate connection between organ donors and recipients.

Artificial Intelligence - what problems can it solve?


The event was part of a series that Odgers Berndtson is running in partnership with technology company NVIDIA as part of their Inception Program. Odgers Berndtson's partnership on the events – known as'Inception Connect' – aims to expose this innovation to new audiences. Speaking about the event series, Odgers Berndtson's Head of the Technology Practice Michael Drew said: "We regularly speak to business leaders who wish to remain ahead of the curve by discovering new AI solutions. The Odgers Berndtson Technology Practice is currently planning the next events focusing on other verticals scheduled for later in 2017.

Emotion Artificial Intelligence will personalize interactions - Tech2


Devices enriched with AI, depth-sensing and neurolinguistic-programming technologies are starting to process, analyze and respond to human emotions. They use the technological approaches of natural-language processing and natural-language understanding, but they don't currently perceive human emotions. Artificial emotional intelligence ("emotion AI") will change that. The next steps for these systems are to understand and respond to users' emotional states, and to appear more human-like, in order to enable more comfortable and natural interaction with users.

Artificial Intelligence is the Stethoscope of the 21st Century - The Medical Futurist


So later, freestyle matches were organized in which supercomputers could play against human chess players assisted by AI (they were called human/AI centaurs). In 2014 in a Freestyle Battle, the AI chess players won 42 games, but centaurs won 53 games. Recently, the AI research branch of the search giant, Google, launched its Google Deepmind Health project, which is used to mine the data of medical records in order to provide better and faster health services. Google DeepMind already launched a partnership with the UK's National Health Service to improve the process of delivering care with digital solutions.

An app a day keeps the doctor away


The free app Ada, which offered up this diagnosis, was launched in the UK in April. Before his Babylon venture, Parsa spent several years running UK hospitals. The underlying tech knits together several strands of AI: the ability to process natural language, including speech, so that you can be understood when you casually describe your symptoms; expert systems that trawl vast databases of the world's medical knowledge in an instant; and machine learning software trained to spot correlations between millions of different complaints and conditions. Ada uses both unsupervised and human-supervised learning to train the app, and Babylon makes sure its doctors agree with the app at least 99 per cent of the time.

Atul Gawande on Priorities, Big and Small – Conversations with Tyler – Medium


TYLER COWEN: I'm here up in Boston with Atul Gawande, and we're going to talk about health, healthcare, healthcare policy, and Atul Gawande himself. GAWANDE: OK, the diagnosis process--people imagine what it is, is that people come to you with a crisply defined problem. GAWANDE: There are plenty of reasons to be worried about CRISPR in my mind. For example, CRISPR enables gene editing that basically is fairly fixed.

How Do Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning Differ in Healthcare? – Elogic Square Analytics


In 2015, healthcare artificial intelligence companies comprised 15 percent of all global AI deals across sectors. Taking the Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of artificial intelligence as "the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior" alongside the Turing Test challenge of creating an algorithm that performs a task indistinguishably from a human counterpart, it becomes fairly clear that machines simply aren't there yet. Clinical decision support – not independent clinical decision making – is a reasonable expectation for machine learning, Dave Dimond, Chief Technology Officer for Global Healthcare at Dell EMC. Currently, machine learning has started to seriously prove its value in the realm of pattern recognition, natural language processing, and deep learning.

AI doctors should improve healthcare, but not at any cost

New Scientist

It sounds banal until you realise that the trainee might be an artificially intelligent voice-recognition system that requires real-world data to learn its trade. "Data collection and analysis is changing so rapidly that systems of governance can't keep up" Such questions of propriety and custodianship have been asked about data before – but medical information is uniquely valuable and sensitive. As revealed by New Scientist, the deal gave the AI company access to 1.6 million people's medical records to develop a monitoring tool for kidney patients: the ICO ruled that they were not properly informed about the use of their data, among other shortcomings. A report by the Royal Society and the British Academy recently concluded that the collection and analysis of data is changing so rapidly that the UK's systems of governance cannot keep up.
