When is AI actually AI? Exploring the true definition of artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Today, the term artificial intelligence (AI) is thrown around rather generously. As businesses around the world become more open to making waves and ditching legacy technologies in their quest to become data-driven, an ever-increasing number of tech deployments are claiming to use AI or machine learning (ML). But, frankly, it's often not true AI that is being used. The problem is, AI doesn't have a widely recognised definition, so it's hard to draw a line between what is AI and what isn't. In recent years, multiple businesses have invested in tools and technologies to help them understand their data, ultimately looking to maximise efficiency and provide the best possible experience for their customers.


Artificial intelligence technique in detection of early esophageal cancer

#artificialintelligence

Esophageal cancer (EC) is the eighth most common cancer and the sixth leading cause of cancer death worldwide[1]. EC mainly consists of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). EAC is the most common pathological type in Western countries, more than 40% of patients with EAC are diagnosed after the disease has metastasized, and the 5-year survival rate is less than 20%[2,3]. Although the incidence of EAC has been increasing globally, ESCC remains the most common pathological type (80%) of all ECs with the highest incidence across a'cancer belt' extending from East Africa and across the Middle East to Asia. Only 20% of patients with ESCC survive longer than 3 years, primarily due to late-stage diagnosis[4].


Breast cancer classification

#artificialintelligence

Features are computed from a digitized image of a fine needle aspirate (FNA) of a breast mass. They describe characteristics of the cell nuclei present in the image. This database is also available through the UW CS ftp server: ftp ftp.cs.wisc.edu Also can be found on UCI Machine Learning Repository: https://archive.ics.uci.edu/ml/datasets/Breast The mean, standard error and "worst" or largest (mean of the three largest values) of these features were computed for each image, resulting in 30 features.


Redefining Cancer Treatment- The Memorial Sloan Way

#artificialintelligence

Whenever a patient has symptoms of cancer, the cancer tumour is taken out and sequenced. Genetic information in the tumor cell is stored in the form of DNA. It is then transcribed to form RNA which is then translated to form proteins/amino acids. In case of a mutation, or a mistake in DNA sequence, the resultant amino acid is affected giving rise to a variation for the particular gene. Thousands of genetic mutations may be present in the sequence. We need to distinguish the malignant mutations (drivers leading to tumour growth) from the benign (passenger) ones.

Here are the top massive failures of artificial intelligence in AI history to date. The creation of artificial intelligence has been postponed for several millennia, and current AI technology is still far from being able to re-design itself in any significant sense. Even now, though, things with artificial intelligence may go wrong. Unfortunately, AI systems may run amok on their own, with no outside intervention. This example is one of the popular AI failures. Deep learning, a collection of methods commonly used to construct AI, began its triumphant march around 20 years ago with the breakthrough in image recognition, also known as computer vision.


Could Artificial Intelligence Diagnose Skin Cancer?

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence sounds futuristic, but it's already all around us (yes, talking about you, Alexa). It's also a burgeoning area in health care--so what does that mean for your life? Here's an example of how AI works to make time-consuming tasks simpler for people: In radiology, physicians are trained to analyze x-rays, CT scans, and other images for abnormalities; this requires individual study of hundreds of thousands of images to become familiar with what's normal and what's not. Computers can now be used to translate an image into data, compare that data against a larger data set comprised of both normal and abnormal images, and produce a quantitative assessment of potential abnormalities. Recent studies have shown that some AI algorithms perform as well as radiologists in analyzing mammograms for breast cancer, and when used by radiologists as an aid, they can enhance diagnostic accuracy. In dermatology, another specialty that relies on image recognition, there is similar enthusiasm for the use of AI in diagnosing serious skin conditions, including cancer.


The future of healthcare is dependent on securing AI-powered medical devices - MedCity News

#artificialintelligence

Investments in artificial intelligence and machine learning are finally on the rise in healthcare. While the industry has been slow to adopt AI in comparison to other sectors like financial services and manufacturing – with 70% of health systems yet to establish a formal program – a recent survey found that 68% of health system executives plan to invest more in AI in the next five years to help reach their strategic goals. And the investments are expected to be significant; the global AI in healthcare market size is estimated to reach $120.2 billion by 2028. The opportunities for AI in healthcare are widespread, spanning both operational and clinical use cases including fraud prevention, voice-assisted charting, registration, remote patient monitoring and more. AI holds particular promise for connected medical devices and telehealth – an integral part of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) – as it enables faster triage, intake, detection and decision making.


Lunit garners regulatory clearance in Singapore

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) software developer Lunit has received clearance from the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) in Singapore for its Insight CXR and Insight MMG AI software applications. CXR detects lesions on chest x-rays that are suspicious of chest abnormalities, while MMG spots suspicious lesions on mammograms, according to the vendor. Lunit said that Fem Surgery in Singapore has already begun using MMG in clinical practice for breast cancer screening.


Artificial intelligence could revolutionise glycomics datasets

#artificialintelligence

Researchers have created a tool that allows glycomics datasets to be analysed using artificial intelligence for early cancer diagnoses. A team at the University of California (UC) San Diego, US, have developed a tool called GlyCompare that enables researchers to analyse glycomics datasets using artificial intelligence (AI), potentially leading to early cancer diagnoses. GlyCompare takes a systems-level perspective that accounts for shared biosynthetic pathways of glycans within and across samples. According to the team, one of the keys to the GlyCompare approach is that it looks at the biological steps needed to synthesise the subunits that make up glycans, rather than only looking at only the whole glycans themselves, thereby improving the accuracy of statistical analyses of glycomics data. To introduce their technology, the team demonstrated their ability to enhance comparisons of glycomics datasets by focusing on the hidden relationships between glycans in several contexts, including gastric cancer tissues.


"Artificial Intelligence" Science-Research, August 2021, Week 4 -- summary from DOAJ, Springer…

#artificialintelligence

Background: Sepsis, post-liver transplantation, is a frequent obstacle that affects patient results. Verdict: The data suggest that machine learning/deep learning can be put on continual streaming data in the transplant ICU to keep track of patients and possibly forecast sepsis. This paper first discusses the notions behind what Big Data is and what it suggests in our present society; just how data is the new money that has driven using algorithms in all locations of our culture, and specifically in the field of Artificial Intelligence; and the principle of'black boxes', and its possible effect on education. The purpose of this study was to quantitatively review the targeted therapy and nursing result of patients with liver metastasis of colon cancer cells by enhanced magnetic vibration imaging. It was wrapped up that the above indications work in examining the efficacy of the targeted treatment of liver transition from colon cancer, and DCE-MRI is of great significance in predicting the effectiveness of targeted therapy of liver metastasis from colon cancer cells.
