Artificial intelligence is being taught to recognize schizophrenia

The works on creating such an algorithm are being conducted by IBM specialists in cooperation with the University of Alberta scientists. The system is going to recognize signs of schizophrenia patients might have, as well as its severity. It would allow doctors to find more effective treatment in every particular case.

The algorithm is being trained on the basis of the functional MRI data and cerebral blood flow rate. Artificial intelligence can diagnose the disease with 74% accuracy analyzing the abovementioned factors in different people – both healthy and suffering from schizophrenia.
