    Thumbs up Google DeepMind's AI can detect over 50 sight-threatening eye conditions



    The new technology is intended to speed us diagnosis, but soon it could lead to smartphones being able to diagnose eye diseases just as well as doctors - perhaps even at no cost. For people in developed countries that may just mean saved time and money, but in parts of the world where eye scanners aren't readily available it means that anyone with a smartphone could get a proper diagnosis.

    Google DeepMind's AI can detect over 50 sight-threatening eye conditions

    "Published in the science journal Nature Medicine, the study reports that DeepMind, in partnership with Moorfields Eye Hospital in London, has trained its algorithms to detect over 50 sight-threatening conditions to the same accuracy as expert clinicians. It's also capable of correctly recommending the most appropriate course of action for patients and prioritize those in most urgent need of care.

    In a project that began two years ago, DeepMind trained its machine learning algorithms using thousands of historic and fully anonymized eye scans to identify diseases that could lead to sight loss. According to the study, the system can now do so with 94 percent accuracy, and the hope is that it could eventually be used to transform how eye exams are conducted around the world.

    That's amazing, especially the smartphone bit (if that's true)
