Diagnosing Lung Disease Using Deep Learning

Introduction Emphysema, a progressive lung disease that impacts breathing ability, affects more than 3 million people in the United States, and more than 65 million people worldwide. Early detection is key in stopping the progression of emphysema, which in severe cases is life-threatening. Pneumonia, a lung infection that also impacts breathing, causes another 1.4 million…

Deep Learning is Coming of Age

In the early days of artificial intelligence (AI), Hans Moravec asserted what became known as Moravec’s paradox: "it is comparatively easy to make computers exhibit adult-level performance on intelligence tests or playing checkers, and difficult or impossible to give them the skills of a one-year-old when it comes to perception and mobility.” This assertion held…
