Research suggests AI able to interpret medical images using deep learning algorithm.  Writing in the Lancet Digital Health, Denniston, Liu and colleagues reported how they focused on research papers published since 2012 – a pivotal year for deep learning. One burgeoning application is the use of AI in interpreting medical images – a field that relies on deep learning, a sophisticated form of machine learning in which a series of labelled images are fed into algorithms that pick out features within them and learn how to classify similar images. Now researchers say they have conducted the first comprehensive review of published studies on the issue, and found humans and machines are on a par.
