AI Can Predict Heart Attack — From An Eye Scan…

LEEDS, United Kingdom — An artificial intelligence system is capable of spotting whether someone will have a heart attack within the next year — through a routine eye scan.

A team from the University of Leeds believes this AI tool opens the door to a cheap and simple screening program for the world’s number one killer. Their tests find the computer can predict patients at risk of a heart attack in the next 12 months with up to 80 percent accuracy. The breakthrough adds to evidence that our eyes are not just “windows to the soul,” but windows to overall health as well.
