Brain Power: How AI Can Head Off Brain Damage

Two million cells a minute. That’s how quickly brain damage happen when the cells get no oxygen in a stroke or in some brain injuries. Both can have tragic consequences — paralysis, memory loss, speech difficulties and even death. But doctors can’t start treatment without an initial diagnosis, and that requires reading a CT scan Read article >

How AI and Deep Learning Will Enable Cancer Diagnosis Via Ultrasound

Viksit Kumar didn’t know his mother had ovarian cancer until it had reached its third stage, too late for chemotherapy to be effective. She died in a hospital in Mumbai, India, in 2006, but might have lived years longer if her cancer had been detected earlier. This knowledge ate at the mechanical engineering student, spurring Read article >
