Artificial Intelligence Helps Identify Cancer Cells

Using machine learning, researchers have developed a method to identify cancer cells which may help speed up medical diagnosesWhile artificial intelligence may be making headlines in terms of robotics, its possibilities are also being explored in fields such as medicine which, although perhaps not Hollywood movie-friendly, are likely to have a significant impact on people’s lives. Take for example the research conducted by an international team of scientists which uses machine learning to identify different kinds of cells. The new method offers significant benefits over previous methods such as using fluorescent staining that binds to components of the cells – it would enable them to be seen using microscopy, but would also alter the cell’s behaviour.  Professor Paul Rees of Swansea University’s College of Engineering who was an author of…
