Using AI for dementia diagnosis is still in research stage, however some of the work points to the development of new medical devices. One is a voxel-based morphometry analysis of brain atrophy, and a brain network analysis using a resting state functional MRI and diffusion tensor imaging. The other is an application to detect dementia in daily life using “IoT” technology. As it has been determined that elderly people's dementia is closely related to lifestyle, the use of AI in the diagnosis is to predict the possibility of dementia in the preclinical stage and to link it to prevention, rather than to provide a definitive diagnosis.
