AI Detects Eye Disease - Google DeepMind

google deepmind eye disease

Artificial Intelligence may soon be used to diagnose eye diseases. Google DeepMind is training their software to detect early signs of eye diseases. It is aimed at detecting two diseases: macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.

These diseases could lead to blindness if not detected early enough. DeepMind analyzed 1 million eye scans to develop an algorithm for diagnosis. It catches early warning signs by evacuating OCT scans. This technology could be used to save patients from blindness causing diseases.
