From Singularity Hub:
Among the examples cited in his interview, Jacobstein referenced a 2017 breakthrough at Stanford University where an AI system was used for skin cancer identification. To train the system, the team showed a convolutional neural network images of 129,000 skin lesions. The system was able to differentiate between images displaying malignant melanomas and benign skin lesions. When tested against 21 board–certified dermatologists, the system made comparable diagnostic calls.
Pattern recognition and image detection are just two examples of successful uses of AI in healthcare and medicine—the list goes on.
A short basic article. If the AI can diagnose skin lesions why not oral lesions or dental radiographs?
