Facebook’s artificial intelligence lab is partnering with New York University’s medical school to try and try to improve magnetic resonance imaging systems, according to a CNN report. NYU’s medical school will provide the social media giant an anonymous dataset of 10,000 MRI exams to train a deep-learning algorithm to recognize anatomical arrangements in hopes that the AI will be able to be integrated into future MRI machines. The algorithm could then, hypothetically, create a portion of the image to save time, as MRI scans can often take as long as an hour to perform, according to the report. “You ...
