“We got the idea to look at all forms of retinal imaging captured over the last 10 years at Moorfields Eye Hospital, more than 2 million retinal photos and scans of over 250,000 people, and to link these data to the NHS database on people who developed CVD, Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. We found that about 10,000 of those patients went on to have a stroke, about 12,000 went on to have a heart attack, and about 13,000 went on to develop dementia.” Keane said on “Our large data set will allow us to use AI deep learning to identify individuals at risk of developing dementia. This is something that’s going to be really exciting in the next 12 to 18 months.”


In the next 2 years, AI will be able to better predict which one of these people will develop dementia, with a 92% accuracy. This is a phenomenal feat as it will not only detect the disease at an earlier stage but also prevent any false diagnosis.
