DeepMind says its AI can detect eye diseases as well as human doctors


Over the past two years, DeepMind, the AI firm spun off from Google, has been working on a new way to spot eye diseases that could rob people of their sight. The company says it’s now ready to show off its work, as it says its system can detect more than 50 different diseases as accurately as experienced doctors.

DeepMind explained that it’s accomplished this with a combination of two neural networks to analyze optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans, which are 3D images of the eye that doctors typically look at to spot signs of disease, as well as bleeding, fluid deposits, and other issues.
