IBM, NYU research shows deep learning can be trained to better spot glaucoma effects | Innovation - ZDNet

Deep learning models can be trained to learn from retina images and then estimate visual function, says Larry Dignan, Editor in Chief of ZDNet and Editorial Director of ZDNet's sister site TechRepublic.

IBM and New York University researchers have improved deep learning techniques to better spot glaucoma and detect it early.  

Big Blue researchers will present their findings at Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology's annual meeting.

In a nutshell, deep learning models can be trained to learn from retina images and then estimate visual function. Those estimates can then be used as a glaucoma indicator. The hope is that non-invasive retina imaging can diagnose glaucoma faster.

Typical visual function tests are based on patient feedback and multiple tests. Glaucoma, the second leading cause of blindness in the world, develops slowly and often diminishes visual function before a diagnosis...

IBM and NYU researchers will present 7 abstracts at the annual meeting. Here they are:
