Artificial Intelligence Identifies Cancer Type



A new computer program can analyse images of patients’ lung tumours, specify cancer types, and even identify altered genes driving abnormal cell growth, a new study shows.

Led by researchers at NYU School of Medicine and published online in Nature Medicine, the study found that a type of artificial intelligence (AI), or “machine learning” program, could distinguish with 97 percent accuracy between adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma–two lung cancer types that experienced pathologists at times struggle to parse without confirmatory tests.

Is this the way of the future?
