Artificial Intelligence Detects Alzheimer’s in Brain Tissue Samples With Almost 100 Percent Accuracy

There’s more proof that machine learning can greatly aid in the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. The latest study, conducted by researchers at UC Davis and UC San Francisco, used artificial intelligence to detect amyloid plaques in the brains of deceased patients, automating the work typically done by pathologists.

The findings concluded that machine learning was extremely accurate in analyzing the type of amyloid plaque found in the brain. Beta-amyloid plaque are clumps of protein fragments in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease that destroy nerve connections. The tool developed by the University of California scientists allows them to analyze thousands of times more data than even the most experienced pathologist would have access to but doesn’t replace their job completely.
