A prototype medical imager developed by scientists at Russia's Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) employs machine learning to analyze near-infrared images of veins and project their patterns onto a patient's body, to make the drawing of blood samples easier. Skoltech’s Dmitry Dylov said, "This is the first [infrared vein scanner] that does everything entirely by virtue of modern AI [artificial intelligence]: one neural network cleans and processes the infrared signal, the second one detects contours of the veins, and the third one continuously 'worries' about alignment to assure the contours projected to a patient's arm overlap with the actual veins."  ...
