Emptying the ‘black box’ to build better AI models | MIT News

When deep learning models are deployed in the real world, perhaps to detect financial fraud from credit card activity or identify cancer in medical images, they are often able to outperform humans. But what exactly are deep learning models learning about? Is a model trained to detect skin cancer in clinical images, for example, actually … Read more

A deep learning tool identifies mosaic mutations that cause disease

Genetic mutations cause hundreds of unsolved and untreatable disorders. Among them, DNA mutations in a small percentage of cells, called mosaic mutations, are very difficult to detect because they are present in only a small percentage of cells. While examining the 3 billion bases of the human genome, current DNA mutation detectors are not well … Read more
