It’s treatable while infants weigh less than two pounds, but doctors often struggle to detect the condition in time. Traditional techniques have been unable to spot, let alone cure, infant blindness,” he says. But that is changing: Researchers at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in Boston have found applying deep learning techniques to the analysis of retinal images results in highly accurate diagnosis and severity scoring of ROP results that can match or exceed clinician-based techniques.

Applying AI in the Fight Against The Coronavirus

Article | April 1, 2020

Drug discovery is a notoriously long, complex and expensive process requiring the concerted efforts of the world’s brightest minds. The complexity in understanding human physiology and molecular mechanisms is increasing with every new research paper published and for every new compound tested. As the world is facing a new challenge in trying to both adapt to and defend itself against the coronavirus, artificial intelligence is offering new hope that a cure might be developed faster than ever before. In this article, we will present some of the technologies being developed and applied in today’s drug discovery process, working side-by-side with scientists tracking new findings, and assisting in the creation of new compounds and potential vaccines. In addition, we will examine how the industry is applying AI in the fight against the coronavirus.

Transforming Healthcare From A ‘Service’ To A ‘Product’

Article | April 20, 2020

Healthcare is top of mind as the coronavirus hits hard everywhere. The inefficiencies of the system itself are on full display during the pandemic — where testing is hard to come by, diagnoses and treatments are reactive rather than proactive, and many people do not get the care they need, when they need it. Adrian Aoun, CEO and founder of Forward, a tech-driven healthcare startup, told Karen Webster that it’s possible to build a completely new healthcare ecosystem, beginning with primary care — and the overhaul needs to leverage data and artificial intelligence (AI).
