The world's first machine intelligent artificial pancreas developed by Australian researchers was found to improve insulin dosing for diabetics.
According to Nigel Greenwood, founder at Australia-based firm Evolving Machine Intelligence, along with researchers from the University of Queensland (UQ), the artificial intelligence-based (AI) technique can also transform the way aeroplane engine's wear & tear is monitored.
"It will allow for better and more accurate treatment than we've ever seen," Greenwood said.
The AI "allows us to evolve computational models of aviation engines as if they were organisms and it can explain explicitly what it thinks is happening inside the engine", said Ingo Jahn, mechanical engineer at UQ.
Greenwood said the AI system learns by forcing mathematical models to evolve, quite literally by using simulated chromosomes, to fit known information.
