According to the Alzheimer’s Association, an estimated 5.7 million Americans of all ages were living with Alzheimer’s dementia in 2018. One in ten people aged 65 and older has Alzheimer’s dementia. Alzheimer’s, which has no cure, is the sixth leading cause of death in the country. In 2010 Congress passed the National Alzheimer’s Project Act with the aim to find a way to prevent the condition or to treat it effectively by 2025. Different scientific approaches, all using machine learning, might be getting closer to realizing that aim.
