A new deep learning algorithm is superior to human experts in distinguishing between retinal ganglion cells in healthy patients and in those with glaucoma. The AI system could potentially help improve the diagnosis of both eye and brain diseases.
Recent studies have found significant biases in artificial intelligence algorithms. Researchers are raising their concerns about AI biases associated with medical devices and algorithms used to analyze health risks. If left unchecked, they say, the technologies could continue to perpetuate sex, gender, and race biases that could exacerbate health care disparities.
