Building hospitals and, in particular, operating rooms is very complex. The cost could increase dramatically if a little mistake is done during the design process. In this article authors explain how 3D modeling (not only virtual reality) simplifies this collaborative task and helps people to imagine new solutions. It allows for immediate experiences and on-demand reconfigurations at significantly lower costs than building physical mock-ups does. This freedom in the virtual world offers several benefits in testing…"Evolving healthcare design with virtual reality technology"
In this article of the New York Times, you can find a presentation of a study on lung cancer CT scans and how AI could help to detect specific nodules. With 6716 cases for the training set, the model shows more than 90% of success with “reductions of 11% in false positives and 5% in false negatives”. You note that Google team are deeply involved in this study. “The whole experimentation process is like a…"A.I. Took a Test to Detect Lung Cancer. It Got an A"
