1 - An AI Ophthalmologist Shows How Machine Learning May Transform Medicine

Google researchers are disrupting the medical field with a new algorithm capable of diagnosing eye disease. The team has been collaborating with the Aravind Medical Research Foundation in India to test-drive a deep-learning algorithm, trained to spot and diagnose a common cause of blindness known as diabetic retinopathy. The method overlaps with the Google's machine learning approach for labeling an influx of web images. While AI systems have had mixed success in medical diagnostics in past trials, this new algorithm has so far matched or surpassed ophthalmologists in diagnosing the condition in patients. This type of automated detection could not only increase reliability and efficient of diagnoses, but also serve patients in places where human expertise is limited. Google Researcher Lily Peng voiced that one of the present challenges is developing a a system that can explain its findings.

1 - Is DeepMind’s Health-Care App a Solution, or a Problem?

A new app from Google's DeepMind called Streams will provide access to patients' histories and test results to hospitals in the UK. After signing a five-year contract with UK's National Health Service, DeepMind is now privy to 1.6 million + patients' healthcare information registered with one of Royal Free NHS Trust’s three London hospitals. The contract and app is a trial run into helping streamline the healthcare provider and delivery system, and DeepMind claims that the system could save over half-a-million hours per year for healthcare administrators. Critics have been quick to turn an eye on the large amount of data that DeepMind would otherwise not have access to, but an analysis of this initial foray may prove to be imperative as machine and deep learning enter the prized but sheltered healthcare sector.

Where Healthcare’s Big Data Actually Comes From

While there have been and continue to be innovative and significant machine learning applications in healthcare, the industry has been slower to come to and embrace the big data movement than other industries. But a snail's pace hasn't kept the data from mounting, and the underlying value in the data now available to health care providers and related service providers is a veritable goldmine. In this editorial, we provide an overview of where healthcare's big data actually comes from, and why providing robust data analytics services in this sector matters.

Machine Learning in Robotics – 5 Modern Applications

As the term "machine learning" has heated up, interest in "robotics" (as expressed in Google Trends) has not altered much over the last three years. So how much of a place is there for machine learning in robotics?

Matteo Berlucchi: Your.MD on the Future of AI in Medicine

Episode Summary: In this episode, we speak with Dr. Matteo Berlucchi, the founder of Your.MD, which uses artificial intelligence to create one of the first personal health assistant platforms in 70+ countries. Berlucchi talks about the challenges in making an AI do what you want, specifically helping people self diagnose and seek proper treatment. He discusses the multiple approaches to AI that are blended together in order to yield optimal results, and touches on the sometimes stark differences between what AI can do in the lab versus the functional application for tens of thousands of people. If you're interested in the diverse applications of AI and the challenges in running a startup, Dr. Berlucchi's makes for an interesting episode.
