Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence in Health Care
Development and Validation of a Deep Learning Algorithm for Detection of Diabetic Retinopathy
in Retinal Fundus Photographs
After years of development, machine learning methods have matured enough to be used in clinical medicine. In 2018 the FDA approved software to screen patients for diabetic retinopathy, and the methods are rapidly making their way into other applications for image analysis, natural language processing, EHR data mining, drug discovery, and more. JAMA is proud to be a primary forum for the work of interdisciplinary groups demonstrating the use of machine learning methods for clinical medicine and health care.
