Microsoft using artificial intelligence to ‘solve’ cancer problem by reprogramming disease

© MicrosoftMicrosoft researcher wants to program the body, the same way you can program a computer, to fight cancer. Researchers are using algorithms and machine learning to tackle the diseaseMicrosoft is working towards fighting cancer using computer science such as machine learning and algorithms.By treating cancer like an information processing system, Microsoft researchers are able to adapt tools typically used to model computational processes to model biological ones.Ultimately, the company hopes to create molecular computers to program the body to fight cancer cells immediately after detection.”We are trying to change the way research is done on a daily basis in biology,” said Jasmin Fisher, a senior researcher who works in the programming principles and tools group in the Microsoft’s research lab in Cambridge.This is combined with a data-driven approach; putting…
