Researchers used artificial intelligence to detect Alzheimer’s risk with over 90% accuracy and could transform how medicine is practiced

Artificial intelligence is already revolutionizing everything from filmmaking to cybersecurity, and it could also be poised to create major breakthroughs in medicine that have stumped researchers for decades.

The use of A.I. in medicine has been growing in recent years, especially in diagnosing illnesses and diseases. A growing number of doctors already rely on deep learning, a machine learning method modeled on artificial neural networks to learn by example as human brains do, to help detect potentially life-threatening conditions that can be easily missed, such as cancer, heart disease, and even asymptomatic cases of COVID-19.

But the next breakthrough for A.I. in medicine could be in identifying Alzheimer’s, the devastating ailment that causes irreversible cognitive decline and dementia, for which treatment and reliable early detection have eluded medical researchers in the century since the disease’s discovery.
