Google AI Retinal Scan Just Got Mighty Powerful 

Google CEO Sundar Pichai recently unveiled a groundbreaking development:


  • Using Google’s AI, cardiovascular events can now be predicted through an eye scan, potentially replacing traditional diagnostic methods like CT scans, MRIs, and X-rays.
  • The journey began four years ago when researchers from Google and Aravind Eye Hospital collaborated to develop an automated tool for detecting diabetic retinopathy.
  • Google’s AI has surpassed expectations. An algorithm introduced earlier this year can identify a person’s gender, smoking status, and predict the five-year risk of a heart attack using retinal imagery.
  • This breakthrough paves the way for the early detection of various diseases, from dementia to schizophrenia. The AI achieved 70% accuracy in distinguishing between patients who experienced cardiovascular events and those who did not, nearly matching the performance of established methods.
  • Affordable, portable solutions using smartphones and retinal cameras hold the potential for widespread implementation, even in remote areas.
