Putting Biopsies Under AI Microscope: Pathology Startup Fuels Shift Away from Physical Slides

Hundreds of millions of tissue biopsies are performed worldwide each year — most of which are diagnosed as non-cancerous. But for the few days or weeks it takes a lab to provide a result, uncertainty weighs on patients. “Patients suffer emotionally, and their cancer is progressing as the clock ticks,” said David West, CEO of Read article >

An App for Sore AIs: Research App Seeks to Predict Seasonal Allergies

Being in nature should be calming, amid chirping birds, buzzing bees, burbling brooks. But pollen, in a sneak attack, makes allergy sufferers erupt into a sneezing, watery-eyed mess. It’s not easy to predict when seasonal allergies will strike — but it’s a question researchers at Palo Alto-based startup doc.ai are tackling with their first data Read article >

An AI for an Eye: How Deep Learning May Prevent Diabetes-Induced Blindness

There are many ways diabetes can be debilitating, even lethal. But one condition caused by the disease comes on without warning. A patient “can go to sleep one night and wake up the next morning and be legally blind, with no previous symptoms,” said Jonathan Stevenson, chief strategy and information officer for Intelligent Retinal Imaging Read article >

How Deep Learning Can Help Doctors Navigate the Contours of Radiation Therapy

Contouring isn’t just for Kim Kardashian’s cheekbones. Doctors use a process of the same name to determine high-precision radiation therapy treatments. Once the size and shape of tumors are identified in medical images, contouring helps them design target volumes for radiation therapy. Researchers from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, in Houston, are Read article >

Counting Craters: Come On, Come On, Look a Little Closer — at Solar System History

The moon has captured humans’ imaginations for thousands of years — but an astronomical number of questions remain about its history, and the history of our solar system. Some of the answers lie in the craters that pockmark the moon’s surface. And with deep learning, scientists are able to see these craters more clearly than Read article >

Brain Gain: ‘Virtual Neurons’ Power Drug Discovery for Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s

More than 50 million people are afflicted with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases worldwide — a figure that’s growing as the average age of the global population rises. Yet effective treatments for nervous system disorders remain elusive due to the complexity of the human brain. Drug development requires scientists to identify a molecule that interacts with Read article >

How Deep Learning Is Dispelling the Clouds Hanging Over Climate Models

Global climate projections don’t always agree on how much the climate will warm in coming decades. Some project temperature rises of three or more degrees Celsius by the year 2100. Others predict a 1.5 degree shift. The primary reason for this variation may be surprising: clouds. “Most of the uncertainties we have — not all, Read article >
