AI Predicts Heart Attacks

Scientists have created an artificial intelligence system that is capable to analyse eye scans taken during a regular visit to the opticians and identify patients who are at a high risk of a heart attack.

The AI has been trained to read retinal scans and identify those people who, over the following year, were likely to have a heart attack.

According to the journal ‘Nature Machine Intelligence’ the AI system had an accuracy of between 70% and 80%.
