First Ai-as­sisted Treat­ment

ChinAfrica - - News Roundup -

China’s first ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence (AI) as­sisted treat­ment cen­ter opened in He­fei, the cap­i­tal of east China’s An­hui Prov­ince on Au­gust 20. It will carry out re­search to guide ma­chine learn­ing, such as rec­og­niz­ing mes­sages and us­ing vis­ual neu­ral net­works to solve prob­lems.

The cen­ter fea­tures a voice-based in­for­ma­tion sys­tem, a com­puter-aided med­i­cal im­age di­ag­no­sis sys­tem and other cut­tingedge

equip­ment. Study­ing mul­ti­tudes of hospi­tal imag­ing data, and 2 mil­lion real elec­tronic pa­tient cases, the sys­tem is ex­pected to im­prove de­tec­tion rates.

AI serves not only as a help­ing hand, but also as a com­peti­tor for doc­tors. It takes a doc­tor about half an hour to scru­ti­nize over 300 med­i­cal im­ages; but through the AI sys­tem, it only takes a few sec­onds.

The Ai-as­sisted treat­ment sim­pli­fies the process of upload­ing imag­ing data, mak­ing a pre­scrip­tion, and de­vel­op­ing new ap­pli­ca­tions with tech­no­log­i­cal achieve­ments. Ex­perts be­lieve that it can ul­ti­mately be a vi­tal so­lu­tion for in­suf­fi­cient med­i­cal re­sources and could prove to be a gi­ant step in med­i­cal treat­ment in China.
