A new study has revealed that artificial intelligence can predict preterm births at 31 weeks of pregnancy.
Using the deep learning model of artificial intelligence, researchers from the US University of Washington studied the electrical fluctuations in the womb of 156 pregnant women.
The researchers combined data on pregnant women’s age, weight, fat percentage, and trimester of pregnancy. This data was then transferred to the deep learning model of artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence predicted premature birth
Emphasizing that the deep learning model of artificial intelligence predicted preterm birth in 19 percent of the women participating in the study, the researchers stated that when the women reached the 37th week of pregnancy, the prediction of the artificial intelligence was correct.
According to a report published by the United Nations, there were 13.4 million preterm births in the world in 2020. About 1 million of these resulted in death.
This shows that a baby is born prematurely every 2 seconds and one of these babies dies every 40 seconds.
