Quartz: Alphabet’s Verily and Google found a potential new test for heart disease using AI

Quartz: Alphabet’s Verily and Google found a potential new test for heart disease using AI. “Researchers were able to find new indicators of heart disease risk present in pictures of retinas by analyzing them with artificial intelligence, according to a paper published Thursday by researchers at Google and Verily, which has not been peer reviewed. Doctors today rely heavily on blood tests to determine risk of heart disease; a potential test based on retinal images would be less invasive, easier to obtain, and faster to analyze with AI.”
