Smart wound dressings with healing sensors

Researchers have developed smart wound dressings with built-in nanosensors that glow to alert patients when a wound is not healing properly.

Deep learning predicts viral infections

Deep learning predicts viral infections

Using fluoresence images from live cells, researchers have trained an artificial neural network to reliably recognize cells that are infected by adenoviruses or herpes viruses.

AI predicts how patients with viral infections will fare

AI predicts how patients with viral infections will fare

Researchers used an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm to sift through terabytes of gene expression data to look for shared patterns in patients with past pandemic viral infections, including SARS, MERS and swine flu.

MRSA: Microneedle patch delivers antibiotics

Researchers are developing a microneedle patch that delivers antibiotics directly into the affected skin area.

AI uses X-ray to differentiate worst cases of COVID-19

AI uses X-ray to differentiate worst cases of COVID-19

Trained to see patterns by analyzing thousands of chest X-rays, a computer program predicted with up to 80 percent accuracy which COVID-19 patients would develop life-threatening complications within four days.
