Google DeeepMind Introduces Improved Treatments for Head and Neck Cancers

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Google DeepMind has teamed up with University College London Hospital (UCLH) in hopes to improve radiotherapy scans by using machine learning techniques.  The collaboration will allow the analyzing of up to 700 former UCLH patients to see if it is possible to use machine learning to make radiotherapy procedures more efficient. Current radiotherapy treatments involve the clinician having to draw around different parts of the patient’s anatomy on scans to tell the machines which areas to target and which to leave alone.  The whole process can take around four hours to do manually, but the team At DeepMind are confident that its machine learning techniques could reduce that time to just one hour.–The collaboration will involve the team analyzing up to 700 anonymous scans…
