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

Killer cell immunotherapy offers potential cure for advanced pancreatic cancer

Killer cell immunotherapy offers potential cure for advanced pancreatic cancer | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
A new approach to treating pancreatic cancer using 'educated killer cells' has shown promise, according to early research by Queen Mary University of London.

 

The new cell-based immunotherapy, which has not yet been tested in humans with pancreatic cancer, led to mice being completely cancer-free, including cancer cells that had already spread to the liver and lungs.

 

Each year around 9,800 people in the UK are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The disease is particularly aggressive and has one of the lowest survival rates of all cancers. This is because it is often diagnosed at a late and advanced stage, when the tumor has already spread to other organs.

 

In the study, published in the journal Gut, the team used pancreatic cancer cells from patients with late-stage disease, and transplanted them into mice. They then took the patients' immune cells and modified them to specifically identify and eliminate the cancer cells - creating 'educated killer cells', or CAR-T cells. And for the first time, the team introduced a new technology that allowed them to completely control the activity of CAR-T cells, making them potentially safer.

 

First author Dr Deepak Raj from Queen Mary University of London, said: "Immunotherapy using CAR-T cells has been tremendously successful in blood cancers, but unfortunately, there have been toxic side effects in its treatment of solid tumors. Given the dismal prognosis of pancreatic cancer with conventional treatments, it's vitally important that we develop safe and effective CAR-T cell therapies for solid tumors, such as pancreatic cancer. "Our work suggests that our new 'switchable' CAR-T cells could be administered to human patients with pancreatic cancer, and we could control their activity at a level that kills the tumor without toxic side effects to normal tissues."

 

The team's new 'switchable' CAR-T system means the treatment can be turned on and off, or have its activity changed to a desired level, making the therapy extremely safe and minimizing the side effects and improving the safety of the treatment. The activity of the treatment was controlled through administration or withdrawal of the 'switch' molecule within living mice, without affecting the ability of the treatment to kill the pancreatic cancers. The team now hopes to bring this promising therapy to the clinic.

Reputation-The reputation of the article and where it comes from is a "claimed global source for science", the article itself comes from a university in London Queen Mary. 

Ability to see- This article has the ability to see due to the fact the University has documented its research and explains the capabilities the uses for the research
  
Vested interest- The article doesn't have a particular vested interest in explaining its research.

Expertise - When it comes to expertise the article covered are from scientist looking for a new approach in a University. 

Neutrality- This article leans toward the more optimistic view of the study instead of an analytical approach. So far this article from what is written is very hopeful in making this approach come to fruition.

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.
