Algorithm in healthcare. MMS: Error. Growth - European Commission - News. The Commission welcomes the adoption of its proposal for two Regulations on medical devices which establish a modernised and more robust EU legislative framework to ensure better protection of public health and patient safety.

Growth - European Commission - News

The new Regulations on medical and in-vitro diagnostic medical devices proposed by the Commission in 2012 will help to ensure that all medical devices - from heart valves to sticking plasters to artificial hips – are safe and perform well. To address this, the new rules will improve market surveillance and traceability as well as make sure that all medical and in vitro diagnostic devices are designed to reflect the latest scientific and technological state-of-the art. The rules will also provide more transparency and legal certainty for producers, manufacturers and importers and help to strengthen international competitiveness and innovation in this strategic sector.

A.I. Versus M.D. One evening last November, a fifty-four-year-old woman from the Bronx arrived at the emergency room at Columbia University’s medical center with a grinding headache.

A.I. Versus M.D.

Her vision had become blurry, she told the E.R. doctors, and her left hand felt numb and weak. The doctors examined her and ordered a CT scan of her head. A few months later, on a morning this January, a team of four radiologists-in-training huddled in front of a computer in a third-floor room of the hospital. The room was windowless and dark, aside from the light from the screen, which looked as if it had been filtered through seawater.

The residents filled a cubicle, and Angela Lignelli-Dipple, the chief of neuroradiology at Columbia, stood behind them with a pencil and pad. Leading AI companies in healthcare (Part 1) What if your ‘doctor’ were a robot? How AI is challenging our ethics. Imagine you are about to receive a diagnosis for what is suspected to be some form of leukemia.

Your doctor tells you she needs a few minutes to consult with Dr. Watson before your appointment. It has been a difficult and unusual case, which is why Watson was brought in to help. Watson, you learn, is no doctor. Jusqu’où peut aller la médecine personnalisée ? Google-plans-use-artificial-intelligence-improve-quality-life-039449. Technology giant Google is aiming to 'democratize' artificial intelligence and machine learning by making them available to everyone including users, developers, and enterprises.


Be it diagnosing of terminal disease or preventing road accidents or recognizing financial frauds, Google said that it intends to lower the entry barrier of using such technologies for improving the quality of life. In addition to this, these technologies would help the self-driving cars as well. Google's Calico partners with new biotech firm to develop anti-aging and cancer drugs. The Google-funded startup Calico, as with many of the tech-originating firms foraying into the life sciences, has a lofty goal: to tackle the spectrum of "aging-related" diseases, which encompasses everything from Parkinson's to Alzheimer's to cancer.

While the outfit is notoriously cagey about its work, it's certainly not shy about striking up partnerships. The latest one came on Thursday afternoon, when the biotech C4 Therapeutics announced a five-year research collaboration with Calico to develop drugs for "diseases of aging," including cancer. There's not a whole lot in the way of details. The firms will "leverage C4T’s expertise and capabilities in targeted protein degradation to jointly discover and advance small molecule protein degraders as therapeutic agents to remove certain disease-causing proteins," according to a press release.

It may lead to better understanding of cardiac health and improved treatments.* The researchers constructed the heart tissue from three free-beating rat cell types: contractile cardiac muscle cells, connective tissue cells, and vascular cells. Fact sheet: Who to contact with concerns about the protection of your personal health information - Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada. Canadians are extremely concerned about the privacy of their personal health information which can be highly sensitive.

Fact sheet: Who to contact with concerns about the protection of your personal health information - Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada

As health information falls into many categories, and may be collected, used and disclosed by a number of organizations and institutions for various purposes, it may be subject to different privacy laws across various jurisdictions. In Canada, there is, for example: private-sector privacy legislation at the federal level, overseen by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC);in some cases, private-sector privacy legislation at the provincial level;privacy legislation applicable to the federal, provincial and territorial public-sector; andin some provinces and territories, legislation dealing specifically with health information protection. It is possible that in certain situations, there may be more than one law that applies and in others, there may not be any applicable privacy law.

Remedy - Home. Autism detectable in brain long before symptoms appear. Image copyright Thinkstock Brain scans can detect autism long before any symptoms start to emerge, say scientists. The earliest that children tend to be diagnosed at present is at the age of two, although it is often later. The study, published in the journal Nature, showed the origins of autism are much earlier than that - in the first year of life. The findings could lead to an early test and even therapies that work while the brain is more malleable. One in every 100 people has autism, which affects behaviour and particularly social interaction. NHS: What is autism? The study looked at 148 children including those at high risk of autism because they had older siblings with the disorder.

All had brain scans at six, 12 and 24 months old. IRCAD France - Institut de Recherche contre les Cancers de l'Appareil Digestif. Robotique Medical Robotics Research Team AVR – ICUBE – UMR CNRS 7357 L’équipe de recherche AVR (Automatique, Vision, Robotique) recherche, conçoit et évalue de nouvelles solutions pour la médecine et la chirurgie assistée par ordinateur. Développement d'un système robotique pour la radiologie interventionnelle sous IRM. Abstract : Performing medical gestures under MRI is a promising medical approach. Todate, using MRI for interventions is still limited, despite the quality of the provided images. This limitation is mainly due to the confined physical space inside the tunnel and the complexity of the gestures. To make accessible such practices, a robotic assistance seems very relevant. However, it’s a challenge for the designer, given the limited space and the strong magnetic field inside the bore. 7239 Surgetique : robotique radiologique et chirurgicale - ScienceDirect.

Towards an ethical Artificial Intelligence – Julie Desk. With the increasing presence of autonomous agents in our daily lives, Artificial Intelligence specialists propose to implement a set of ethical rules to allow them to realize the extent of their actions. Others seek the establishment of a right for robots as a way to resolve the emerging legal issues Among the numerous articles dedicated to autonomous cars today, one particular thought experiment resurfaces often: the trolley problem.

Adapted to self-driving cars, it is usually presented as follows: an autonomous car, with a person onboard, sees five pedestrians suddenly appear in its path. The only way to avoid them is for the car to send itself off the road, crashing and therefore causing its passenger’s death. Faced with this Cornelian dilemma, what choice does the Artificial Intelligence control software have to make? A pragmatic approach Grégory Bonnet, AI researcher at the University of Caen in France, is one of them. First FDA Approval For Clinical Cloud-Based Deep Learning In Healthcare.
