JFR 2018: French radiology backs new nonprofit AI plan
October 17, 2018 -- Interest in artificial intelligence (AI) showed no sign of waning for the duration of the Journées Francophones de Radiologie Diagnostique et Interventionnelle (JFR 2018), and the congress proved the perfect stage for announcing the latest AI project: a nonprofit association.  Discuss
AI can prescreen head CT studies for urgent findings
October 16, 2018 -- A set of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms can prescreen head CT scans for urgent findings such as intracranial hemorrhage and cranial fracture, enabling triage of these cases for priority review by radiologists, according to research published online on October 11 in Lancet.  Discuss
JFR 2018: Spotlight falls on radiomics
October 15, 2018 -- Being both data-driven and a vital element of discovery research, radiomics is poised to be a pivotal process for the development of new diagnostic imaging strategies and therapies, delegates learned at the French radiology congress (JFR 2018).  Discuss
JFR 2018: Teams prepare for battle in AI challenge
October 12, 2018 -- Rivals in the ongoing big data/artificial intelligence (AI) challenge that will take place during the course of the French national radiology congress (JFR 2018) are eager for the next round of images, scheduled for opening day on 12 October in Paris.  Discuss
Fake views: Generating image data for machine learning
October 10, 2018 -- Like a human locked in a white soundless room struggling to make sense of the outside world, artificial intelligence is impossible to achieve without some sort of input, Dr. Hugh Harvey writes. A functional algorithm must use data, he notes.  Discuss
AI algorithm predicts need for mental therapy
September 28, 2018 -- German researchers led a team that used an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm to analyze MR images and behavioral data of people at high risk of psychosis or with depression. The algorithm was able to predict whether the individuals would need mental therapy, according to results published online on 26 September in JAMA Psychiatry.  Discuss
Why radiology must take care when it comes to AI
September 26, 2018 -- Artificial intelligence (AI) is mindless, and this is a fundamental flaw, writes the Maverinck. There is no objectivity or neutrality in AI, and it's not a real science; it's closer to online gambling and tinkering than creating a fundamentally reliable support system for highly specific tasks, he argues.  Discuss
