‘Breakthroughs in artificial intelligence set to help Pakistani doctors’

The use of revolutionary computer technology, artificial intelligence, simulations and graphics to study and understand the functioning of mind, brain and the nervous system is making a range of scientific and medical breakthroughs possible, experts said on Saturday. They were speaking at the National Health Sciences Research Symposium, the Aga Khan University’s annual event. Computer simulations and algorithms have enabled researchers to emulate the complex electrochemistry of the brain. This has resulted in new insights into mental disorders such as epilepsy – which affects two million people in Pakistan – and a range of medical innovations that is enabling children, who were born deaf, to hear for the first time and soldiers, who lost arms and legs in war, to control robotic limbs with their minds. These were some of…
