Life saving Artificial intelligence

Artificial Intelligence, big data and machine learning have been ruling the industry in recent times. Starting from Amazon to Google, indulgence in predictive modelling is indispensible. When it comes to the human body, well, artificial intelligence plays a pivotal role in saving lives. Rampant use of AI is involved in CT scans in cases of stroke or brain injuries. Radiologists have a backlog of cases which might delay the detection of the criticality involved in a particular case. To the rescue comes AI, which by streamlining the CT scan interpretation workflow by triage process and automation of the initial screening process, radically reduces the time lapse in detection and diagnosis of time sensitive cases. To detect abnormalities demanding urgent attention such as intracranial haemorrhage, cranial fractures, midline shifts etc, has provided automated deep learning algorithms to assist physicians. The algorithms’ accuracy is equal to that of a physician and classification algorithms are used in radiology itself. TITAN X of NVIDIA, cuDNN and GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs were used that achieved almost 95% accuracy rate as compared to that of 97% by radiologists. Such AI algorithms tend to become a life saver in a world where there is an acute shortage of specialized radiologists.
