First systematic review and meta-analysis suggests artificial intelligence may be as effective as health professionals at diagnosing disease -- ScienceDaily
"We reviewed over 20,500 articles, but less than 1% of these were sufficiently robust in their design and reporting that independent reviewers had high confidence in their claims. What's more, only 25 studies validated the AI models externally (using medical images from a different population), and just 14 studies actually compared the performance of AI and health professionals using the same test sample," explains Professor Alastair Denniston from University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, UK, who led the research.
"Within those handful of high-quality studies, we found that deep learning could indeed detect diseases ranging from cancers to eye diseases as accurately as health professionals. But it's important to note that AI did not substantially out-perform human diagnosis."
