Google’s DeepMind to Use AI Algorithms to Spot Eye Disease

Deepmind, a British artificial intelligence company acquired by Google in 2014, will be partnering with the UK’s National Health Service to develop algorithms designed to combat eye disease by catching it early. According to The Guardian, the process is a “machine learning system which will eventually be able to recognize sight-threatening conditions from just a digital scan of the eye.” The article explains more about the process and the partners: “The collaboration between the two organizations came about thanks to an unsolicited request from one doctor at Moorfields. Pearse Keane, a consultant ophthalmologist, contacted the Google subsidiary through its website to discuss the need to better analyze scans of the eye, and initiated the research project shortly after. ‘I’d been reading about deep learning and the success that technology had had in…
