An artificial intelligence (AI)-based algorithm can quickly diagnose rare genetic diseases in critically ill children with high accuracy, allowing earlier treatment, according to a new report.

“This study is an exciting milestone demonstrating how rapid insights from AI-powered decision support technologies have the potential to significantly improve patient care,” Dr. Mark Yandell, professor of human genetics at University of Utah Health, and a founding scientific advisor to Fabric Genomics, said in a joint news release from Fabric Genomics and Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine, in San Diego, California.
