Why we must overcome resistance to AI in health imaging

For women, breast cancer is a threatening reality. In fact, one in eight will develop invasive breast cancer at some point during her lifetime, according to Breastcancer.org. With early detection and progressive treatments, however, two-thirds of women have the potential to triumph over breast cancer. The potential of artificial intelligence (AI) in health imaging Though…

How do biology and machine learning inspire one another?

What are CNNs? The current “best” algorithm for visual pattern recognition is a convolutional neural network (CNN). CNNs were developed from perceptrons, vector-mapping algorithms in turn inspired by associative learning of the brain, and the idea of “integrate and fire” neurons. Much like the first perceptron, the convolutional neural network also bears the hallmarks of…
