Partnership video - DeepMind Health

A new medical research partnership that could revolutionise the way professionals carry out eye tests and lead to earlier detection of common eye diseases has been launched in London.

DeepMind is a British company who want to address some of the toughest challenges in healthcare today, and make a difference by changing how technology works with the NHS. DeepMind and Moorfields Eye Hospital are collaborating on a research project to investigate how artificial intelligence could help to better analyse these scans, giving clinicians a better understanding of eye disease. We hope this will lead to earlier detection and treatment for patients and ultimately help to avoid cases of preventable eye disease.

Faster and more efficient diagnosis of eye disease could help prevent many thousands of cases of sight loss due to wet age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, which together affect more than 625,000 people in the UK
