AI can detect breast cancer almsot as efficiently as humans: Report

Artificial intelligence (AI) is almost as good as humans at diagnosing metastatic breast cancer. Researchers from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre and Harvard Medical School are developing a way of training AI using deep learning methods to read as well as interpret pathology images. In fact, they proved how effective the technique is in a competition at the annual International Symposium of Biomedical Imaging. At the competition, the AI was given the task of looking for breast cancer in images of lymph nodes. The AI was trained by feeding it multiple images of parts with cancerous cells and also others with normal cells. The AI initially had trouble identifying the images, but as with all deep learning techniques, it learned from its mistakes. Gradually, the AI improved to about 92 percent accuracy.…
