Depends -- if it could be combined with traditional insulin therapy to help prevent the serious highs, it could still be pretty beneficial for overall control. I don't know if that would work or not, but it seems like a possibility, at least.
I'm also not sure what normal blood glucose levels are for mice. They refer to source that I found says that the mean level for mice is about 174 mg/DL.
" Modern artificial neural networks are composed of an array of software components, divided into inputs, hidden layers and outputs. The arrays can be “trained” by repeated exposures to recognize patterns like images or sounds.
These techniques, aided by the growing speed and power of modern computers, have led to rapid improvements in speech recognition, drug discovery and computer vision. "
Sounds like both.
Well, that doesn't say anything; that just described every neural network for the past couple of decades, except for the "rapid improvement" part. I haven't read TFA, so I don't know if there's more detail, but just describing the basics of how neural networks operate isn't an explanation for why they're suddenly improving.
