Artificial intelligence could be the future of medicine, and in particular the ability to treat our physical and mental illnesses.
But what if AI was able to detect, treat, and even save us?
A team at MIT has come up with a new way to do just that.
The researchers created a virtual reality platform that could detect diseases using machine learning, and that’s all the more impressive because it’s based on a concept called ‘neural networks’ – the neural networks that underpin the creation of complex computer programs.
It could even be possible to use AI to create new kinds of medicine.
In the world of medicine these kinds of technologies have traditionally been used for diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation.
This could change however, as artificial intelligence is expected to become more sophisticated and capable of learning more about us, and as it becomes more sophisticated we’ll be able to tailor our treatments to the needs of individuals.
In an interview with the BBC, co-author and Professor Michael Rutter said: Neural networks can be used to detect diseases.
“Neural network models are used in a variety of areas, including image recognition, speech recognition, and speech recognition for facial recognition.”
In speech recognition there are thousands of thousands of networks, but it’s important to recognise that the network architecture can be modified to match the situation.
“Neural Networks are used to identify objects, and are usually used to help people identify objects and objects in the environment, or to understand how to recognise objects.
Neurons work as computer chips which communicate with each other.
To help the computer to make better decisions, they use the information they receive from other neural networks to perform certain actions, such as processing the sensory data from the brain to generate the desired result.”
Neuronic networks are very powerful tools.
They can process a lot of information very quickly, and they are also very flexible, and can be trained on very large data sets.
“The fact that they can learn and be trained is a very promising development.”
The MIT researchers were inspired by the idea of using neural networks for image recognition in the face recognition technology, where each pixel of the image is sent to a computer to perform a series of operations.
This gives the computer the ability, when given a certain input image, to create a series, called a training image, which it uses to train the system.
“We thought it would be interesting to use neural networks in the same way,” said Professor Rutter.
“Instead of using a single pixel, we would use the network to do a series.”
This allows us to learn the model, and it also allows us the flexibility to modify the model to fit the needs.
“The team’s virtual reality lab is a combination of an Oculus Rift and a Leap Motion virtual reality headset.
Using an Oculus rift, the team uses the camera and an Oculus tracking device to detect and recognise objects in a virtual environment.
This then allows the computer in the lab to take images and convert them into digital images, which the user can then use to make a 3D model of the object.
The team then used the same model to make the 3D models of each of the people in the virtual environment, which were then displayed in real-time on a computer screen.”
In this case we used the model of people in a room together to predict which way the person was going to walk.””
If a person has the same eye color, it would tell us whether they should go into the VR or not, and we can also tell the computer how much weight to give the person, and if that weight is too heavy or too light.”
“In this case we used the model of people in a room together to predict which way the person was going to walk.”
The researchers found that the model could predict the way people in different rooms would walk, even though they were completely different in terms of eye colour.
Image: The team created an algorithm to predict the person’s walking behaviour using data from their virtual reality data.
There are two kinds of neural networks – the ones used in the Face Recognition technique and the ones created by the team.
One kind of neural network uses a neural network to recognise people and objects, such it uses a set of images to create an image, called an input image.
A second type of neural net uses a different kind of image to create the output image.
This allows it to recognise different facial features and different objects.
This new method could potentially be used in other areas, for example, in the field of cancer diagnosis, or in medicine.
