Health Matters: Artificial intelligence is changing modern medicine | News, Sports, Jobs

Imagine the day: you go to your local health care facility and wait for your turn. Eventually the nurse brings you back to the testing room where you enter a small plexiglass chamber, similar to the airport security scanners. You place your feet on the spots indicated and stand quietly. Whereupon the artificial intelligence running the analysis system promptly spits out a page with your diagnoses and even some specific recommendations for treatment. All without the services (or time) of a physician. And the accuracy is impressive and treatments appropriate. This is the foreseeable future of medicine’s synthesis with AI, artificial intelligence.

Artificial intelligence in medicine is currently in its infancy. But all those knowledgeable agree, it is only a matter of time. In 10 to 20 years, the capability of the technology will likely catch up to the

NEC OncoImmunity AS and Oslo University Hospital Team Up to Develop a Diagnostic for COVID-19 Using Artificial Intelligence

NEC OncoImmunity AS (NOI), a subsidiary of NEC Corporation (NEC), and Oslo University Hospital (OUH) are pleased to announce that they have recently been awarded a prestigious grant from the Research Council of Norway (RCN) to develop an artificial intelligence (AI) platform that will enable the rapid design of T-cell diagnostics for emerging or endemic infectious diseases. The project will develop a novel T-cell diagnostic for the current COVID-19 pandemic to complement the current serological tests. This will improve the ability to identify immune responses and acquired immunity, which is desperately needed to deal with the COVID-19 crisis.

Current technologies involve extensive trial and error to define exactly which parts of the pathogen induces robust immunity. These so-called immunodominant epitopes need to be identified for the general population. These demanding, work-intensive and time-consuming steps are necessary to develop tests to monitor the T-cell response to viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 (the

This Health Intelligence Service Goes Beyond Gut Health by Measuring Your RNA

A lot of folksy medical advice has been disproven by modern science. We now know, for example, that you can’t contract a cold from cold, wet weather. And you don’t have to wait an hour after you eat before jumping in the pool. And it turns out that ulcers are not actually caused by stress or spicy food. However, modern science hasn’t disproved every piece of health advice your grandma ever gave you. Take the old maxim “you are what you eat.” As it turns out, that one is actually more true than we ever realized. Over the last couple of decades, scientific research has shown that the human gut microbiome plays a huge role in our health, and our diets can impact wellness on a cellular level. However, because no two microbiomes are exactly alike, the foods that are good (or bad) for one person may not be good
