Artificial intelligence is able to diagnose COVID-19 in the first hour after hospitalization
It seems to me that there are a lot of IT specialists among the readers of the blog. For a respite from the vaccine theme, I bring to their attention an article published the other day in the Lancet (https://www.thelancet.com/journals/landig/article/PIIS2589-7500(20)30274-0/fulltext).
For those who, like me, are not an IT specialist, in a few words, what the article is about. It describes an AI system developed at the University of Oxford, and “trained” on the material of electronic medical records of almost 156 thousand patients who were hospitalized in University clinics in Oxford between December 1, 2017 and April 20, 2020.
After “training”, the system began to diagnose COVID-19 with high accuracy in newly admitted patients on the basis of routine data that become available in the hospital system within 1 hour after admission. This is long before the results of the PCR test (or other test for viral RNA) become known. Program codes and information to them are available in the online materials of this article.Поділитися цим:
