This neural network can diagnose pneumonia better than your doctor

“Add diagnosing dangerous lung diseases to the growing list of things artificial intelligence can do better than humans,” said Jackie Snow at MIT Technology Review. Researchers from Stanford University have developed a neural network that can “beat radiologists at spotting pneumonia” on chest X-rays. When the network’s algorithm was expanded, it also proved better than […]
