AI system that mimics human gaze could be used to detect cancer

A cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) system that can accurately predict the areas of an image where a person is most likely to look has been created by scientists at Cardiff University.Based on the mechanics of the human brain and its ability to distinguish between different parts of an image, the researchers say the novel system more accurately represents human vision than anything that has gone before.Applications of the new system range from robotics, multimedia communication and video surveillance to automated image editing and finding tumours in medical images.
