Google AI can detect cancer better?


Date: 16.02.2021

An artificially intelligent Google system could be better at spotting breast cancer than expert radiologists, a new study suggests.

The research saw the computer, which was created by Google’s AI experts, compared with medical professionals as they both screened mammograms.

It found that the AI was largely as good as the humans at spotting incidences of breast cancer – and that it was much better at avoiding false positives.

Healthcare experts now hope similar technology can be used to improve the rate of detection of breast cancer, which affects one in eight women, and other health issues.

The comparison was undertaken by researchers from the US and UK and was published in the journal Nature. It is just the latest to suggest that AI could lead to dramatic changes in healthcare.
