EYE ON CHINA
First AI-assisted treatment center in Hefei city

China鈥檚 first artificial intelligence (AI) assisted treatment center opened in Hefei, the capital of eastern China鈥檚 Anhui Province on 20 August 2017. It will carry out research to guide machine-learning, such as recognizing messages and using visual neural networks to solve problems.

The center features a voice-based information system, a computer-aided medical image diagnosis system and some other cutting-edge equipments. Studying multitudes of hospital imaging data and electronic records of two million real patient cases, the system is expected to improve detection rates.

It takes a doctor about half an hour to scrutinize over 300 medical images, but through the artificial intelligence system, it only takes a few seconds.

The AI-assisted treatment simplifies the process of uploading imaging data, making a prescription, and developing new applications with technological achievements. It can ultimately be a vital solution for insufficient medical resources and could prove to be a giant step for China's medical treatment.
