IBM’s Watson AI artificial intelligence diagnosing rare diseases that doctors could find.
Every time we hear of IBM’s Watson artificial intelligence, to wit that comes victory computers against human opponents in a quiz challenge, but this is super clever system so far has already found a number of other clever ways of applications, including medicine.
Watson AI has recently achieved his greatest achievement thus saving the first time a human life. Doctors and scientists from the University of Tokyo reported that artificial intelligence is a rare form of leukemia diagnosed in one 60-year old female patient, which the doctors a few months ago totally wrong treated.
Watson j took only 10 minutes to comparing the genetic changes in patients with the data base of 20 million scientific papers on the topic of cancer treatment identified a rare type of leukemia, and thanks to his diagnosis of the patient started to receive proper treatment, giving her at the last moment saved a life.
Doctors say that Watson AI is not all-powerful in the diagnosis, because it is effective only in those cases where it can rely on a huge database, no state that could be very useful in those situations when you get a case of some extremely rare disease, because it will save you a lot time doctors who would otherwise be alone to study a large number of scientific papers, or hope that they will some other hospital or doctor like dr. House’s help.
