Microsoft wants to ‘solve’ cancer in the next 10 years using AI

Tuesday 20 September 2016 Microsoft is using machine learning and computer vision so radiologists can get a more detailed understanding of how a patient’s tumour is progressing Microsoft Microsoft is working towards fighting cancer using computer science such as machine learning and algorithms. ADVERTISEMENT 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…
