What are three current applications for AI?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is on a trajectory to become ubiquitous in every area of our lives. In this post, we explore three current applications of artificial intelligence in the real world and the machine learning techniques that make them work.

Image Recognition: Retinopathy

Image Recognition: Retinopathy

Almost every major company now has vested interest in image recognition algorithms: Tesla for autonomous driving, Amazon for product and price comparison, Google for its image search, and of course Facebook for facial recognition. 

The potential for this type of technology is limitless and has already been used in fields as disparate as sport science to astronomy. Here we discuss one recent and important example in the medical field: diabetic retinopathy.  

Diagnosis software, based on image recognition, allows quick and cheap diagnosis, saving human hours as well as human lives.
