AI can detect Alzheimer's disease a decade ahead
Currently, the AI algorithm is 86% accurate. In particular, out of the 148 brain scans provided, the AI detected mild cognitive impairment in 84% of subjects who may get affected by Alzheimer in near future.
Therefore, once made accurate, the AI algorithm can be used as a diagnostic tool for early detection of the disease. In the long run, this will likely help prevent the Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer’s disease starts from just an awareness that there is a functional decline like memory loss, but as the severity increases, can lead to 24/7 care and cripple the adult into a new born’s function. People older than 65 have high risk of getting affected. while it could affect younger people as well.
