Artificial intelligence (AI) is constantly finding new applications and ways to enhance our lives through automation, analysis, and data processing. With the rapid growth of the COVID-19 pandemic, AI is finding its way into helping diagnosis of the virus. This interesting information came to us from Health Europa in their article, “Teaching Artificial Intelligence to diagnose COVID-19.”

The largest CT scan database in the world with COVID-19 features has been collected in Russia and is teaching AI to diagnose COVID-19. The dataset is the largest to date and all CT studies in the dataset have a special marking made according to the classification, which reflects the manifestation of pathological abnormalities of COVID-19 in the lung tissue based on chest CTs. The dataset aims to teach AI to diagnose COVID-19.

The complexity and rise of data in healthcare means that AI will increasingly be applied within the field.
