Google Admits Its AI for Diabetic Blindness Falls Short

It worked in the lab, but not so well in real life.
The artificial intelligence Google trained to catch diabetic blindness exhibited 90 percent accuracy in the lab, but unfortunately it didn’t perform as well in real life, Egadget reports.

Google tested the AI in 11 clinics in Thailand, where it could take up to 10 weeks to confirm diabetic blindness. The AI was designed to speed the process up to 10 minutes. However, the team found that the algorithm couldn’t even recognize quite a few of the photos, because it was trained on high-resolution images.

Google admits in the study’s announcement that it still has to “study and incorporate real-life evaluations” before the AI can be widely deployed.
