In this collaboration between DeepMind and the NHS, the artificial intelligence research company applies machine learning techniques to medical data to help improve how disease is diagnosed and treated. Acquired by Google, DeepMind has an spen source philosophy to sharing its insights with the wider research community in order to support academic progress. Along with all of its published papers, DeepMind shares a variety of its datasets including: DeepMind CNN/Daily Mail Reading Comprehension Corpus; Metacontrol for Adaptive Imagination-Based Optimization Task; and Collectible Card Game to Code.
The research is still in its early stages, but a current partnership with Moorfields Eye Hospital reveals that hospitals directly provide data to DeepMind to conduct its machine learning diagnoses. In turn DeepMind shares various datasets, code and publications online and via its GitHub account.
DeepMind uses artificial intelligence research to improve healthcare, the environment and other public problems. In this particular partnership with the NHS, the collaborative aims to improve the quality and speed of patient diagnosis and to spur research in the medical field through machine learning techniques.
