An AI tool opens up new possibilities for analyzing microscope images. According to a study, the tool, which has already received international recognition, has the potential to fundamentally change microscopy and pave the way for discoveries and applications in both research and industry.
Deep learning has taken the world by storm, having a massive impact on many industries, sectors, and scientific fields. Researchers have now created an AI tool that allows them to harness the incredible power of deep learning, with a focus on images captured with microscopes.
The great challenge in microscopy is extracting as much information as possible from the data-packed images, and deep learning has proven to be very effective. The tool uses neural networks to learn to retrieve the exact information that a researcher wants from an image by examining many images, known as training data. The tool automates the process of producing training data, allowing tens of thousands of images to be generated in an hour rather than a hundred in a month.
The tool enables the user to determine the size and material properties of very small particles and easily count and classify cells. The researchers have already shown that the tool can be used by industries that need to purify their emissions because it allows them to see in real time if all unwanted particles have been filtered out.
