Alzheimer's disease

A team of scientist, including one of an Indian-origin, has successfully trained a new Artificial Intelligence algorithm that may soon help doctors to make accurate predictions regarding cognitive decline leading to Alzheimer's disease and provide intervention.

The team from McGill University in Canada, designed an algorithm  that learns signatures from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), genetics, and clinical data.

This specific algorithm can help predict whether an individual's cognitive faculties are likely to deteriorate towards Alzheimer's in the next five years.
