Cell by Cell: Deep Learning Powers Drug Discovery Effort for Hundreds of Rare Diseases

Cancer, diabetes, heart disease. These diseases attract a ton of research effort and funding, and for good reason: They afflict tens of millions of people each year. But there are about 7,000 known rare diseases that rarely get attention. Also called “orphan” diseases, these conditions collectively affect about 400 million worldwide and were historically neglected Read article >

How AI Is Helping Address the Rohingya Refugee Healthcare Crisis

More than 700,000 Rohingya refugees have fled Myanmar in the past year, finding temporary shelter across the border in Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar district. Their overcrowded, unhygienic living conditions make them especially vulnerable to infections and other diseases — a need the United Nations has called “immense,” with healthcare services “grossly under-funded.” Help in addressing these Read article >

Startup Brings AI-Powered Image Analysis to Heart, Liver and Lungs

Analysis of medical images is a time sink for radiologists, but crucial for diagnosing all sorts of ailments. When screening for lung cancer, radiologists spend up to three minutes analyzing a normal image and as long as 10 minutes analyzing one with an abnormality. Moreover, the varied levels of skill and expertise of radiologists can Read article >

MIT Deploys Deep Learning Tool for Analyzing Mammograms

Depending on which radiologist analyzes a mammogram, there’s a huge variation in breast density readings — an assessment that indicates a patient’s risk for developing breast cancer. One study found that radiologists classified anywhere between six and 85 percent of mammograms into the higher cancer risk areas of “heterogeneously dense” or “extremely dense.” Researchers at Read article >
