September 4, 2018, National University of Singapore A transnational research team led by the National University of Singapore (NUS) has harnessed CURATE.AI, a powerful artificial intelligence (AI) platform, to treat a patient with advanced cancer, completely halting disease progression. This new […]

Google’s AI Can Predict When A Patient Will Die

AI knows when you’re going to die. But unlike in sci-fi movies, that information could end up saving lives. A new paper published in Nature suggests that feeding electronic health record data to a deep learning model could substantially improve the accuracy of […]

Incredible self-balancing ‘robotic suit’ that uses algorithms to mimic how humans move could let wheelchair users walk again

A French startup built a ‘robotic’ exoskeleton that helps paraplegic patients walk It attaches to the user’s legs and back via straps that distribute pressure evenly A series of motors in the hips, knees and ankles communicate with a computer, […]

FDA Approves AI Algorithm To Help Doctors Diagnose Fractures Faster

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the marketing of an artificial intelligence algorithm that helps detect wrist fractures. On Thursday, May 24, the FDA approved an AI-based software to detect wrist fractures. The software called OsteoDetect uses artificial intelligence to […]

Prediction method for epileptic seizures developed

Epileptic seizures strike with little warning and nearly one-third of people living with epilepsy are resistant to treatment that controls these attacks. More than 65 million people worldwide are living with epilepsy. Now researchers at the University of Sydney have used advanced […]

Man against machine: AI is better than dermatologists at diagnosing skin cancer

EUROPEAN SOCIETY FOR MEDICAL ONCOLOGY Researchers have shown for the first time that a form of artificial intelligence or machine learning known as a deep learning convolutional neural network (CNN) is better than experienced dermatologists at detecting skin cancer.  In a […]

Robots Can Grow Humanoid Mini-Organs From Stem Cells Faster And Better Than People

Automated robots now have the tools to grow imitation, simplified human organs out of stem cells. Thankfully, we weren’t transported to a sci-fi dystopia where the machines have risen up and started to farm humans, but rather a world where […]

The big ethical questions for artificial intelligence in healthcare

AI in healthcare is developing rapidly, with many applications currently in use or in development in the UK and worldwide. The Nuffield Council on Bioethics examines the current and potential applications of AI in healthcare, and the ethical issues arising […]
