    Alzheimer’s Meets Computational Medicine

    In an article in the The New Scientist, AI is being used to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease years before symptoms of the disease begin to appear. Although there is yet to be a cure, there are drugs currently available to slow the spread of the disease.

    Patrick Hof at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York is intrigued by the new test. He says that a method that might predict the disease a decade before it is fully expressed would be ‘incredibly valuable’ should preventative therapeutics emerge.”

    This is yet another example of something we keep seeing: computational medicine is advancing with tremendous speed and will have increasingly profound effects on our health. We are no longer in the realm of linear progression of advancements; we have entered the geometric phase.  Medicine is going to get very interesting.
