Google DeepMind is training its artificial intelligence software to detect early signs of eye diseases.
It's aimed at detecting two diseases — age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. The latter can lead to blindness if not detected early.
DeepMind is analyzing about 1 million eye scans to develop an algorithm that can catch early warning signs of the conditions.
