Alzheimer's disease is a treacherous, incurable disease. Researchers now want to use artificial intelligence to discover the first signs ten years ago.
Researchers in Bari (Italy) have apparently discovered a new way in which they can use artificial intelligence to diagnose Alzheimer's disease, reports New Scientist. Early detection can delay the effects of the disease, doctors hope.
The algorithm determines minor structural changes in the brain. They are due to illness. Before the first symptoms appear (memory impairment, loss of speech), AI manages to recognize these ten years.
Researchers have a computer according to a report with 67 MRT scans trained 32 people were from Alzheimer's, 29 from healthy volunteers. These were provided by the Los Angeles University of Southern California database. In the second round, those with more MR imagesT scans fed
The score is 86% and 84%
Result: AI was able to distinguish between healthy people and one with Alzheimer's disease with an accuracy of 86 percent. The first signs showed that it was 84 percent correct.
According to researchers, AI may even be able to detect this disease even earlier, but further testing is needed.
