AI looks into your eyes to predict cardio risk

As with all deep learning analysis, neural networks were then used to mine this information for patterns, learning to associate telltale signs in the eye scans with the metrics needed to predict cardiovascular risk (e.g., age and blood pressure).

Google AI's method reportedly uses deep learning algorithms to create a so-called "heat map or graphical representation of data which revealed which pixels in an image".

In addition to identifying risk factors, Google's deep learning algorithms learned to predict the likelihood of a cardiovascular event, such as a heart attack or stroke, with "fairly" high accuracy.

Laidlaw leads Scotland fightback to keep title hopes alive
One of those returning to the side is Greig Laidlaw , in place of Ali Price, who struggled throughout in Cardiff. Scotland have won seven of their last eight home games with the only defeat coming against the All Blacks.

One test showed a 70-percent accuracy, for example, in determining which patient among two had experienced a major cardiovascular event following when the retinal image was taken. By studying the appearance algorithms can predict heart disease.

Luke Oakden-Rayner, a medical researcher at the University of Adelaide who specializes in machine learning analysis, told The Verge, "They're taking data that's been captured for one clinical reason and getting more out of it than we now do". Apart from the retina scans they also recorded the medical data of these individuals.

"AI offers us the potential for new, less invasive tests for heart health - predicting cardiovascular results from retinal images with computer vision - encouraging early results!", Google CEO Sundar Pichai said on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India unveiled a total of 11 two-wheelers, including a new 160 cc motorcycle, "X-Blade". A Bengaluru-based tech start-up Emflux Motors unveiled India's first electric superbike dubbed as the Emflux One at the event.

In a report that appeared on The Verge, Google said using technology such as machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), the company's software can accurately deduce data, including an individual's age, blood pressure, and whether or not they smoke.

The opportunity to one day readily understand the health of a patient's blood vessels, key to cardiovascular health, with a simple retinal image could lower the barrier to engage in critical conversations on preventive measures to protect against a cardiovascular event. She added that explaining how the algorithm is making its prediction gives the doctor more confidence in the algorithm itself.

For this study the team used the machine to look into the eyes of 284,335 patients. This could help scientists generate more targeted hypotheses and drive a wide range of future research.
