Google DeepMind collaborates with UCLH to find cancer treatment using AI technology

Google DeepMind is working with the University College London Hospitals (UCLH) to help reduce the amount of time taken for the treatment process of head and neck cancer using machine learning technology, the company announced recently. The research project includes anonymised scans from up to 700 neck and head cancer patients at UCHL. It will use machine learning to make radiotherapy process more efficient. The head and neck cancer affects more than 11,000 patients in the UK each year. “So with clinicians in UCLH’s world-leading radiotherapy team we are exploring whether machine learning methods could reduce the amount of time it takes to plan radiotherapy treatment for such cancers,” the company mentioned in a blog post. It takes about four hours for clinicians to identify between cancerous and healthy tissues…
