Why researchers are using AI to fake health data

Why researchers are using AI to fake health data | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

To get enough good data to train disease-hunting AI—and without violating patient privacy—scientists are turning to the AI techniques behind deepfakes

 

Current AI systems need a lot of data to learn on. That’s fine when you want an algorithm to recognize cats in videos—thank you, YouTube—but not all data is as easy to get. For researchers trying to train AI to spot medical conditions, privacy issues, financial concerns, and rare diseases with few examples all impede their efforts. But more AI could be the solution, with generative adversarial networks (GANs) creating realistic-enough medical images for AI to learn on.

 

In a new paper by chipmaker NVIDIA, MGH & BWH Center for Clinical Data Science and the Mayo Clinic, researchers showed how they used GANs–algorithms that iterate and improve by competing against each other–to create synthetic brain MRI images with tumors. The work was presented at the Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention MICCAI conference in Spain last week.

 

The researchers used two open data sets of brain MRIs to train the system—one that showed brains with Alzheimer’s disease and the other with tumors.

 

The resulting images are good enough that using a mix of 10% real data and the rest GAN-created was as good at training the algorithm to spot tumors in new images as a data set made up of all real images.

 

There are limitations. GANs can’t create types of images with details it has never seen before, and could make the often unnoticed imbalances in data sets worse. And since the biology of tumors isn’t totally understood, creating images from scratch isn’t an option.

 

Still, GANs can produce pictures with tumors that are larger or smaller, or move them to the other side of the brain, and in realistic ways.

Using dummy data(fakes) is an age old technique in any software design and algorithm building process. Using automated systems with self learning capabilities(thats becomes AI right) to generate fake data, is also an age old technique. After a point, it becomes interesting to see how the AI system can be used for ways besides simply generating the deepfakes

Forecasting life expectancy, years of life lost, and all-cause and cause-specific mortality for 250 causes of death: reference and alternative scenarios for 2016–40 for 195 countries and territories

With the present study, we provide a robust, flexible forecasting platform from which
reference forecasts and alternative health scenarios can be explored in relation to
a wide range of independent drivers of health. Our reference forecast points to overall
improvements through 2040 in most countries, yet the range found across better and
worse health scenarios renders a precarious vision of the future—a world with accelerating
progress from technical innovation but with the potential for worsening health outcomes
in the absence of deliberate policy action.

Medical Device Cybersecurity - Regional Incident Preparedness and Response Playbook by MITRE for US FDA

Medical Device Cybersecurity - Regional Incident Preparedness and Response Playbook by MITRE for US FDA | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

Cybersecurity attacks on Healthcare and Public Health (HPH) critical infrastructure, such as healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs), are occurring with greater frequency.  Disruptions in clinical care operations can put patients at risk.

Securing critical infrastucture is a shared responsibility across many stakeholders, and with respect to medical
devices the primary stakeholders are FDA, Medical Device Manufacturers (MDMs), and HDOs.

 

A common preparedness and response challenge FDA heard from its stakeholders in the aftermath of the aforementioned attacks is that

  • HDOs did not know with whom to communicate (e.g. MDM-HDO interactions);
  • what actions they might consider taking;
  • and what resources were available to aid in their response.

 

Without timely, accurate information and incorporation of medical device cybersecurity into their organizational emergency response plans, it was difficult for HDOs to assess and mitigate the impact of these attacks on their medical devices.

 

To address this unmet need, the MITRE team (with the support of FDA), engaged with a broad distribution of stakeholder groups to understand the gaps, challenges, and resources for HDOs participating in medical device cybersecurity preparedness and response activities.

 

Their efforts resulted in the creation of this playbook that may serve as a resource for HDOs.

 

The playbook provides a stakeholder-derived, open source, and customizable framework that HDOs may choose to leverage as a part of their emergency response plans in order to ultimately limit disruptions in continuity of clinical care as well as the potential for direct patient harm stemming from medical device cyber security incidents.
