Oxford-Based Company Develops Life-Saving AI System

Artificial intelligences are constantly being talked about. In the UK, one of them is creating a sensation thanks to its results. And you know what, the latter saves lives!

You will agree, 2022 has been an extraordinary year for artificial intelligence . Between the ChatGPT phenomenon, the meteoric rise of artistic AIs and the consequent innovations of technologies embedded in electric cars, one can logically wonder what 2023 will hold for us. The developers and engineers behind its artificial intelligences certainly still have a lot of ideas in mind to improve their babies, and yet, when you see the prowess of certain AIs, it is difficult to imagine what the evolutions could look like. of these. A Black Mirror future may not be that far from us…

Whether we think well or not of artificial intelligences, we can all agree on the fact that it is quite impressive. And it becomes even more impressive when they are able to save lives! In the United Kingdom, a company based in Oxford has just succeeded in developing a system to help the medical profession . Called Brainomix e-Stroke (e-AVC if we translate literally), this AI is able to interpret brain scans accurately and quickly. The UK Department of Health says the system allows patients “to get the right treatment, in the right place, at the right time” .

AI that achieves impressive results

In the United Kingdom, 85,000 people suffer a cerebrovascular accident (CVA) each year (source VOA ). To give you an idea of ​​the results obtained by Brainomix e-Stroke, the proportion of stroke victims who were able to resume their daily activities increased from 16 to 48% with the help of the system (on a sample of 111,000 cases). But how does this life-saving AI-based technology work?

Brainomix e-Stroke is in fact an artificial intelligence assisted imaging platform , which allows to reduce diagnoses by more than an hour and which allows to choose in an ultra-efficient way the most suitable treatment for the patient who has undergone a cerebral vascular accident. Today, the system developed by the company Brainomix is ​​used in 11 stroke treatment networks of the National Health Service (NHS).

Dr Timothy Ferris, Director of Transformation at NHS England, explained in a statement that the treatment “harnesses the potential of AI to help expert staff deliver life-changing care.  Our VOA colleagues also point out that the e-Stroke platform is used in more than 330 hospitals around the globe . If some still doubted the usefulness of artificial intelligence, this example could well make them change their minds.
