Crean un software que analiza imágenes médicas y llega a pensar como un doctor

Informáticos canadienses han ideado una herramienta informática que segmenta imágenes médicas de un modo inteligente. Basado en la inteligencia artificial, aprende con el uso y puede llegar a adelantarse a las decisiones del médico. Gracias a esta herramienta, la segmentación de imágenes, que recaía hasta ahora en las manos de los médicos, puede ser ahora transferida a un algoritmo. Esta tecnología podría ser útil para otros campos, como son la minería o la astronomía.
