Artificial intelligence outperforms clinical tests at predicting progress of Alzheimer’s disease

Cambridge scientists have developed an artificially-intelligent tool capable of predicting in four cases out of five whether people with early signs of dementia will remain stable or develop Alzheimer's disease. We've created a tool which is much more sensitive than current approaches at predicting whether someone will progress from mild symptoms to Alzheimer's Zoe Kourtzi The team say this new approach could reduce the need for invasive and costly diagnostic tests while improving treatment outcomes early when interventions such as lifestyle changes or new medicines may have a chance to work best.
