How Machine Learning Is Revolutionizing The Diagnosis of Rare Diseases

Facial recognition app Face2Gene is being used by doctors to diagnose rare diseases. Courtesy FDNA Doing this all with a single photo is a neat trick, but the real power of the app lies in its long-term potential. Face2Gene’s system uses a machine-learning algorithm, meaning it learns from every new face it scans. The more data it acquires through its use, scientists hope, the more accurate the diagnoses. This is the latest medical technology that leverages the power of big data to make better diagnoses and more accurate predictions; other artificial intelligence systems analyze patient symptoms or medical scans to predict cancers and crunch numbers to provide personalized treatments. Early diagnosis of rare diseases can help families seek specialized treatments, yet families often wait years for test results and referrals…
