A Chinese artificial intelligence system has won a selection of Chinese human doctors on two rounds of competitions on the diagnosis of brain tumors and predicting brain expansion in the Chinese capital, Xinhua reported. The artificial intelligence system BioMind defeated a team of 15 of top Chinese doctors with a score of two zero. The artificial intelligence system BioMind, developed by the Artificial Intelligence Center for Neurological Disorders at Tiantan Hospital in Beijing, was able to correctly diagnose brain tumors by 87 percent in 225 cases in about 15 minutes, while the team of 15 senior doctors made the same diagnosis Accurately up to only 66 percent within about 30 minutes.
The Chinese artificial intelligence system BioMind has again triumphed in predicting brain hemorrhagic expansion. The system provided correct predictions in 83 percent of brain hemorrhagic expansion, while the team of human physicians working in well-known hospitals across the country has provided predictions Correct in 63 percent of cases only.
Gao Peiyi, head of radiology at Tiantan Hospital, a leading institution in neurosurgery, said the findings of human physicians were largely normal and were even better in terms of average accuracy than regular hospitals.
In order to train the artificial intelligence system BioMind, the developers have fed tens of thousands of neurological diseases pictures that Tiantan Hospital has archived over the past 10 years, making it possible to diagnose common neurological diseases such as meningomas and gingival tumors at an accuracy rate of more than 90 percent Most experienced doctors.
According to the organizer, the hospital contributed all the cases, which were real, but were never used as training materials for the artificial intelligence system. Wang Yongjun, executive vice president of Tiantan Hospital, said he personally did not care much about who won, because the competition was never intended To put humans against technology, but to help doctors learn and improve through interaction with technology.
“I hope through this competition that doctors will test the power of artificial intelligence, and this is particularly true of some doctors who are skeptical of artificial intelligence, and I hope they can further understand this technology and eliminate their concerns about it,” Wang said.
One of the doctors participating in the second round explained that he welcomes artificial intelligence because it is not a threat but a friend. This technology will not only reduce the workload but also help doctors to continue learning and improve their skills.
Bian Xiuwu, an academic with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and a member of the judging panel, said there was never a completely standard correct answer to the diagnosis of developing diseases, and that artificial intelligence served as an assistant to physicians in providing preliminary results only. Parizel, a former president of the European Radiology Society and a member of the jury, said artificial intelligence would not replace doctors, but instead works the same way GPS helps drivers.
China has a unique advantage in developing artificial intelligence based on the size of its population and the sheer volume of accessible digital medical data. In recent years China has submitted a series of plans to develop artificial intelligence applications. In 2017, the State Council issued a new generation development plan Of artificial intelligence.
The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has also issued a tripartite plan of action to promote the development of a new generation of artificial intelligence 2018-2020, where the Action Plan proposed the development of medical diagnostic systems with the help of images to support medicine in various fields.
