AI detects pneumonia from chest X-rays

Andrew Ng and Stanford colleagues used AI to detect pneumonia from x-rays with similar accuracy to trained radiologists.  The CheXNet model analyzed 112,200 frontal-view X-ray images of 30,805 unique patients released by the NIH (ChestX-ray14.)

Deep Learning algorithms also detected14 diseases including fibrosis, hernias, and cell masses, with fewer false positives and negatives than NIH benchmark research.
