Can AI interpret chest x-rays as well as rad residents?
October 9, 2020 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) software can yield similar or even, by some measures, better performance than radiology residents in interpreting chest radiographs, and it could potentially be utilized for automated preliminary assessments of these exams, according to research published online October 9 in JAMA Network Open.

CORISK algorithm predicts oxygen need in COVID-19 patients
October 5, 2020 -- A deep-learning algorithm called CORISK can predict if a patient with COVID-19 symptoms will need supplemental oxygen. CORISK was developed using a federated-learning initiative involving 20 hospitals worldwide, performs well, and is generalizable, according to an announcement Monday at the Nvidia GPU Technology Conference.
