Artificial intelligence detects dementia in the early stages

Scientists at the universities of Brighton and Sussex (UK) have taught artificial intelligence to diagnose dementia. To do this, specialists have introduced into the program 70 features that are detected at the earliest stage of neurodegenerative processes - five years before the first symptoms appear.

The researchers developed several variants of the program, the best of which was able to detect dementia with an accuracy of up to 70%. Scientists say that it can be difficult for doctors without special equipment to detect the signs preceding the disease in time and combine them into a common picture.

In this case, artificial intelligence makes it possible to solve the problem, and this makes it possible to conduct timely prevention and treatment at an early stage. English scientists are planning further work on the program - after all, along with correct diagnoses artificial intelligence "gave out" and false positive results.
