An extraordinary development in artificial intelligence will help doctors uncover whether a patient has experienced domestic violence. Using artificial intelligence for physical abuse diagnoses, doctors will be able to reveal symptoms of domestic abuse so that seemingly unrelated injuries like a broken bone and depression can be correlated to signify home violence.

The artificial intelligence program was developed by Boston doctors, and can identify abuse victims up to six years before these cases would otherwise be found, according to Discovery News. Before a doctor even consults with a patient the system will alert them as to the likelihood of abuse in a particular case.
