Machine learning can predict rate of memory change

In new research published, researchers have created a machine learning algorithm that is able to form two distinct groups of people who have early memory problems known as mild cognitive impairment. The algorithm was able to predict different rates of change in people’s memory and thinking skills, also showing how those in the rapid change group were at an increased risk of developing dementia.
