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"
In this article, Martijn Roelandse introduces a “mixed-reality Hackathon” hosted by Springer Nature and dedicated to exploration of new uses of AR and VR in sciences. It’s very interesting to see that today, many 3D observations (made with confocal devices for example) are still seen on 2D screens! Immersive technologies could revolutionize it, maybe more fastly then we think. With the arrival of the fifth wave of computing, amazing techniques like artificial intelligence, blockchain and…"How Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Can Revolutionize Science?"
Virtual reality and other immersive technologies has many uses in healthcare, and you can discovers some applications here. Medical virtual reality goes entirely against conventional beliefs about technology making healthcare less human, less empathetic and less caring. Virtual reality teaches empathy to med students, makes vaccination for children more sufferable, helps get rid of fears by treating phobias, relieves chronic pain or fulfills the last wishes of the dying.
