At least seven patients in Beijing who doctors said had “no hope” of regaining consciousness were re-evaluated by an artificial intelligence system that predicted they would awaken within a year.

After going through his brain scans, however, the computer gave him more than 20 points, close to the full score.

A 36-year-old man who suffered bilateral brainstem damage after a stroke was given low scores by both doctors and AI. »
