Moorfields share eye scans for DeepMind’s machine learning project

Moorfields Eye Hosptial is to share one million anonymised eye scans with DeepMind in a bid to develop machine learning techniques that will detect common eye diseases. The London hospital estimates that two million people are living with sight loss in the UK, with around 360,000 registered as blind or partially sighted.
