Researchers have demonstrated two deep learning tools aimed at uncovering the psychology of aging.

The scientists focused on getting their AI to mimic the cortical mechanism of “gating,” which controls information flow between neuron clusters to apply existing knowledge to new situations.

North of the border, two grants of $200,000 are on offer for researchers innovating transformative ways to apply AI in healthcare—and they’re only one part of an ambitious academic endeavor to expand medical AI.

An Israeli healthcare AI startup has earned a seventh green light from the FDA. Its latest algorithm can reconstruct X-rays of bones into 3D printouts with no less clarity than would be produced by advanced imaging modalities.

Amazon Web Services is marketing the line to healthcare organizations that are awash in data but lack an efficient way to wring meaning from it.

An Ohio-based healthcare AI company focused on improving fiscal performance for payers as well as providers is buying a like-minded entity with expertise in streamlining prior-authorization processes.  

Drawing on nothing more than Facebook activity, psychiatric AI can distinguish individuals headed for hospitalization with schizophrenia from those with worsening mood disorders such as clinical depression and bipolar states. 

Researchers have demonstrated a machine learning model that can rule out COVID-19 in many emergency patients—and all the algorithm needs is data from routine ER blood tests.

Only two of 156 scientific papers on AI published over the past 12 years used emotion as input data, according to a new literature review. And the reviewers focused on a specialty ripe for augmentation by artificial emotional intelligence: pregnancy health.

Psychological researchers have used AI to not only test a hypothesis on COVID-related behaviors but also to help come up with the hypothesis in the first place.

Parkinson’s disease is diagnosable early with a basic eye exam and AI, according to researchers at the University of Florida.

AI will only succeed in healthcare to the extent that it wins over all three stakeholder subpopulations—providers, payers and patients.
