Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
Geographic atrophy (GA) is an eye disease which causes irreversible vision loss in patients aged 50 years and older. The disease progresses over time and a patient may become blind. There is no consensus regarding the factors behind progression. In this Visualise Your Thesis (VYT) entry, I explain how I've used artificial intelligence to (a) elucidate factors which cause disease progression, and (b) develop a progression model. This information could be used to guide the development of new treatments for GA.
