Pathologist-level Interpretable Whole-Slide Cancer Diagnosis with Deep Learning
Researchers present a novel pathology whole-slide diagnosis method, powered by artificial intelligence, to address the lack of interpretable diagnosis. The proposed method masters the ability to automate the human-like diagnostic reasoning process and translate gigapixels directly to a series of interpretable predictions.

How AI Could Save Lives without Spilling Medical Secrets
One promising approach is now getting its first big test at Stanford Medical School in California. Patients there can choose to contribute their medical data to an AI system that can be trained to diagnose eye disease without ever actually accessing their personal details.

Adversarial Examples Aren’t Bugs, They’re Features
In the new paper Adversarial Examples Are Not Bugs, They Are Features, a group of MIT researchers propose that adversarial examples’ effectiveness can be attributed to non-robustness: “Adversarial vulnerability is a direct result of our models’ sensitivity to well-generalizing features in the data.”
