A university and a think tank in Shimane Prefecture said Monday they plan to develop a diagnosis system that can use artificial intelligence to detect early stage dementia and hope to have it in practical use by the end of March 2020.

Dementia is caused by damage in the brain and treatment becomes difficult as it progresses. The new system to be created by Shimane University and Erisa Co. is aimed at detecting early signs of “mild cognitive impairment” with high accuracy, as people with this condition often develop dementia later.
