AI Can Now Accurately Diagnose Eye Diseases
Researches at the Shiley Eye Institute at UC San Diego Health and University of California San Diego School of Medicine along with researchers from Germany, China, and Texas, have created an Artificial Intelligence capable of quickly and reliably diagnosing patients with retinal diseases.
Thousands of tomographs non-invasively scan the iris and pupil of the eye to determine if a patient has an eye condition. This speeds the process of a diagnosis, enabling the patient to receive treatment quicker than a manual diagnosis.
Artificial Intelligence is certainly a hot topic of discussion, but it spans farther than smart speakers and self-driving cars. In this instance, a medical process is expedited without sacrificing accuracy. This use, though very niche, showcased just how AI can alter all aspects of our technology-driven world. What could be next?
