Engineers at Duke University used machine learning to develop a microscope capable of adapting its lighting angles, colors, and patterns while teaching itself the optimal settings needed to complete a diagnostic task. In a proof-of-concept study, the microscope simultaneously developed a lighting pattern and classification system that allowed it to quickly identify red blood cells infected by the malaria parasite. According to the research team, it performed these tasks more accurately than trained physicians and other machine learning approaches. “A standard microscope...Read full article
