OpenAI's Artificial Intelligence Model Keeps Up with Eye Doctors (Almost No Prescription Left Unwritten)

“According to a new study, OpenAI’s artificial intelligence model is almost as successful as doctors in diagnosing eye-related health issues. When OpenAI is mentioned, ChatGPT-4 and text or image generation usually come to mind. However, it’s important not to forget that the GPT-4 model is actually an advanced model that can be used in different fields. The latest artificial intelligence model developed by OpenAI demonstrates how advanced new systems can be in the healthcare domain.

According to an article published on Wednesday, the GPT-4 model has generally achieved higher success rates than doctors in diagnosing eye diseases and providing treatment recommendations. Where it fell short, it still achieved success rates very close to those of doctors. This success rate marks a significant advancement for artificial intelligence, especially considering the occasional ‘hallucinations’ that AI may experience, where it uses nonexistent data as if it were real.”

It surpassed non-specialized doctors.

In the study, GPT-4 competed against specialized eye doctors, doctors with specialized training, and those without any specialization. Using 87 patient scenarios, the study found that GPT-4 not only outperformed non-specialist doctors but also achieved nearly comparable results with specialists.

This study drew attention for comparing GPT-4 not against outcomes, but against healthcare professionals. Additionally, it utilized a generative artificial intelligence in its general structure, rather than using an AI confined to a narrow field, such as in the case of identifying cancer tissue.

Especially in the diagnosis of diseases like cancer, artificial intelligence models are increasingly being utilized, and computers are preferred for performing calculations in place of doctors or scientists. This paves the way for new breakthroughs. However, these innovations bring along the need for good data and data oversight. Furthermore, when it comes to health issues, it’s important to consult a healthcare institution rather than relying on Google or ChatGPT.
