More than 200,000 Australians live with epilepsy, and support services are essential to have a quality of life.

A new research from Monash University has shown epilepsy could be diagnosed faster and more accurately using artificial intelligence, cutting the time for specialists to diagnose their patients.

The machine is learning to diagnose the condition with electroencephalograms (or EEGs) from 2 hospitals in Melbourne, and it expects to expand the machine’s knowledge with more studies from patients from across Australia.
