    Re: AI can diagnose Alzheimer’s years before clinical methods

    One of the most interesting reports about the use of AI I have read in a long time -,and one of the most profound and valuable applications for AI. I’m sure AI will find more applications is medical science as the technology develops.

    Great news item HEXUS (Mark) - thank you.

    Re: AI can diagnose Alzheimer’s years before clinical methods

    Take your AI and sod off.

    I wanna keep my job as the department know-it-all. Can't have a computer taking that away from me.

    Or at least keep it in the Radiology department where it belongs. (EDIT: Away from me).

    EDIT: Yeh I am being sarcastic. I'm just feeling pretty ill and very, very bitter. Plus, how long until the AI learns the way of the amyloid protein due to too much data, goes all Skynet on us and destroys all out hearts, kidneys and gives us all early onset dementia? Cheaper than nukes and you essentially end up with a very marketable walking dead style scenario. Marketable to the new robot super-race that is.

    I was trying to explain to myself the difference between AI and machine learning earlier. I failed. Badly.

    Because AI is used for everything... in everything and I got all confused.

    Had mates working on autonomous stuff over 10 years ago,and various aspects of data mining,etc. Never heard AI mentioned once. They missed a trick.

    They should have called it the medical nano-quantumdot- AI assisted encrypted autonomous high throughput systems biology enhanced global vehicular positioning system. Oh,and just add bioinformatics in there randomly. Everyone likes a good 'informatic! That would tick enough buzzwords on the grant application. Sorted.

    You forgot "hyper" as in "hyperloop".

    Elon is opening the "loop" soon. It's the "hyperloop" without the "hyper".

    Elon, you dug a very short metro tunnel using an off the shelf machine and a lot of money. Admit it and we can all get on with our lives.

    Who gets sued if there is a false positive or negative?

    The computer's neural net tells us what is wrong with our neural net. That seems a bit spooky somehow

    sounds easy to me.

    if <user> = <votedbrexit> then
    if <user> = <still thinks it was a good idea> then
    <diagnosis> = <alzheimers>
    end if
    else <crack on>
    end if
