The word AI or Artificial Intelligence gets thrown around a bit too much these days, especially with the intent of describing it as something dangerous. We’ve seen numerous uses of Artificial Intelligence or AI, which range from creating a virtual TV news anchor to finding new drugs for better health. While some people advocate against the use of AI fearing that it could take over the world, that scenario currently seems to be a far cry from reality.
Researchers have now found a new way to employ AI to our advantage; to screen people for Diabetic Eye Disease. A new research has proved that an AI screening system can accurately detect diabetic retinopathy 95.5 percent of the time, and that too in merely 60 seconds. This means that a non-ophthalmologist can now use the system and help people discover the eye disease which, if untreated, can potentially lead to blindness.
