The development of a new artificial intelligence-enhanced machine is set to boost the success of IVF.
The technology, developed by experts from Imperial College in London and Cornell University in New York, has been created to help doctors select healthy embryos for IVF.
According to the developers, the AI technology is producing an 85 per cent accuracy rate.
The AI technology uses algorithms based on time-lapse photography to predict the quality of embryos in an incubator.
According to reports, the technology has been fed more than 50,000 images of more than 10,000 embryos to learn the key factors that determine a healthy embryo.
Embryology experts claim that using the AI tool could boost the IVF success rate for women under 35 with no underlying health conditions from 50 per cent to 70 per cent.
The AI technology was recently unveiled at a fertility conference in Denver, Colorado, with the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
