Aritificial Intelligence that detects congenital cataracts w
A group of Chinese ophthalmologists and computer scientists has demonstrated a machine learning algorithm for identifying congenital cataracts, a rare eye disease that's nonetheless responsible for some 10 percent of all vision loss in children worldwide. The algorithm was able to catch the disease with accuracies exceeding 90 percent, putting it on par with individual human ophthalmologists. The new algorithm is described in the current issue of Nature Biomedical Engineering.
