Evaluation of early promise

Description of AIs that have medical application in image recognition. Not overblown and points out limitations in quality of image (lighting, resolution, angle from which photo taken, pixellation) and sufficient examples of normal and abnormal to distinguish in training. Short piece overlooks the drawback in possible bias in relying upon human judgement in training what is normal and not. Looking to future where PC processing power to do this is available on a smartphone.
