Doctor Robot



There are no doubts that in the future artificial intelligence will help humanity in many areas. But some AI functions can already be performed. And not for free. The Israeli company Zebra Medical Vision recently introduced Zebra AI1 (or simply Zebra-Med) that analyzes the results of CT, MRI and other data for diagnosis. The robot’s result is studied by doctors in order for them to set the final diagnosis.


AI is already able to automatically detect 11 different diseases, and by the end of 2017 their number should increase to 17. Among the pathologies that the robot can detect are lung cancer, breast cancer, heart disease, blood vessels, and brain trauma. For example, the developers present the research to identify the accumulation of calcium in the coronary arteries.


It is worthy of note that Zebra AI1 is not the only robot-doctor. Recently IBM has also trained its IBM AI Watson to analyze various data like X-ray, CT and MRI. Watson is also able to draw conclusions about the presence of diseases.
