“On Tuesday, researchers from Peking University in Beijing reported finding that temperature patterns of the face — detected using thermal cameras and AI — are associated with various chronic illnesses, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Last week, researchers at the University of British Columbia announced they pinpointed a distinct subtype of endometrial cancer that put patients at much greater risk of death but ‘would otherwise go unrecognized by traditional pathology and molecular diagnostic tests.’ In a study last month, researchers reported they could identify patients with Parkinson’s disease far earlier — up to seven years before symptoms appear — using a blood test paired with AI. 

The big picture: AI algorithms are able to organize and sift through massive amounts of data quickly and identify patterns that might otherwise go unnoticed.”
