The Imperative to Democratize Artificial Intelligence

MIT Technology Review recently published an article titled, “An AI Ophthalmologist Shows How Machine Learning May Transform Medicine.” In it, it describes how Google researchers at their DeepMind subsidiary used artificial intelligence (AI) to scan images of human eyes to detect a common form of blindness as well as, or better than trained experts can. They achieved this by using the same machine learning techniques Google and other tech giants including Facebook use to analyze images that show up on their web platforms. Instead of creating complex programs to handle every conceivable detail in an image, researchers instead teach machines how to learn on their own when exposed to large volumes of pre-tagged examples. In the MIT Technology Review article, DeepMind’s algorithm studied some 128,000 retinal images that were already…
