Artificial Pancreas to Boost Diabetes Treatment
Australian researchers have created the world's first machine intelligent artificial pancreas that could improve insulin dosing for diabetics.
According to Nigel Greenwood, founder at Australia-based firm Evolving Machine Intelligence, along with researchers from the University of Queensland (UQ), the artificial intelligence-based (AI) technique can also transform the way aeroplane engine's wear & tear is monitored.
Our technology can recommend the best insulin dosage to keep each individual patient’s blood glucose levels under control with unprecedented stability and safety. It will allow for better and more accurate treatment than we’ve ever seen.Nigel Greenwood, founder at Australia-based firm Evolving Machine Intelligence
The researchers also applied the same AI technique to aviation turbine engines and their related systems to predict engine component degradation and plan services to improve performance.
Greenwood said the AI system learns by forcing mathematical models to evolve, quite literally by using simulated chromosomes, to fit known information.
