Explainable AI predicts blood-oxygen levels during anaesthesia

This issue highlights machine-learning algorithms that explain hypoxaemia risk under anaesthesia during surgery, that identify polyps in colonoscopy images and videos, and that predict post-surgical adverse pathology in prostate-cancer and breast-cancer tissue samples. It also highlights predictions of tumour uptake and distribution of specific therapeutic agents, and a personalized virtual-heart model for finding radio-frequency ablation targets for infarct-related tachycardia.

The cover illustrates variations in risk factors contributing to hypoxaemia under general anaesthesia, as predicted by machine learning.
