AI Tech Can Identify Genetic Disorders From a Person’s Face
Named Deep Gestalt, the AI technology outperformed clinicians in three separate trials. The study was published in the journal Nature Medicine. Using a photograph of a patient’s face, Deep Gestalt would propose a list of ten possible rare genetic disorders. The photos used were of patients already diagnosed with particular disorders.
The technology could identify the correct syndromes 91% of the time. Jorge Cardoso, King’s College London, via CNN Critics of the technology say it could be used to discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions.
