AI has been taught to predict the development of diseases

Japanese experts from the universities of Hirosaki and Kyoto have created a program based on artificial intelligence, which can predict the development of hypertension, dementia, diabetes, coronary heart disease, and other diseases. To do so, 20 health indicators must be introduced, which are revealed during medical examinations. This is reported by the agency TASS.

To train the algorithm, more than 20 thousand patients were used. 

To determine what parameters may lead to the development of diseases in the future, scientists have studied not only the data on health but also genetic information, lifestyle, habits, and physical activity of the study participants. For example, the development of diabetes could be predicted by blood sugar levels, leg muscle mass, body fat, and some other markers. All information was recorded in a computer with the use of artificial intelligence.

As a result, the program was able to make an accurate forecast for the next three years. The ability to predict diseases, the authors say, will allow as early as possible to resort to their prevention.
