Science is taking a giant leap forward as machine-learning, artificial intelligence and other types of computer-generated intelligence are contributing a great deal to our knowledge of various diseases.  Finally, there is good news on the Alzheimer’s front.  A study which was published in the journal Nature found that a machine-learning MRI algorithm can predict whether a person has Alzheimer’s disease or not with a whopping 98% accuracy.  It can also differentiate between an early and late-staged Alzheimer’s patient with an accuracy of 79%.  The modeling was achieved on an MRI found in most hospitals.
