Artificial intelligence systems have been developed to predict whether someone will develop dementia within two years, with 92 per cent accuracy, its developers claim.

Data from 15,300 patients in the US was used to train the AI by researchers from the University of Exeter, teaching it who would and wouldn't go on to develop dementia. 

The technique works by spotting patterns in the data and learning who is most at risk, with researchers hoping it could cut the number of people wrongly diagnosed.
