Artificial Intelligence System and Human Partnership Achieves Nearly Perfect Accuracy in Breast …

IRVINE, Calif., June 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — At the International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging in Prague, a Harvard-based artificial intelligence system won the Camelyon16 challenge, a competition comprised of participants introducing their individual AI systems and its ability to facilitate automated lymph node metastasis diagnosis.Photo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20160628/384660Referred to as PathAl, the computing system identifies cancerous cells through a mechanism referred to as deep learning—an algorithmic technique that accumulates copious amounts of unstructured data and organizes it into clusters, before analyzing it for patterns. Deep learning is predominately utilized in speech recognition systems like Apple’s Siri and Microsoft’s Cortana.According to one of the challenge’s organizers, Jeroen van der Laak of Radboud University Medical Center in Netherlands, the technology featured in the competition went “way beyond” his expectations, as the AI’s accuracy proved strikingly close to…
