Cancer Detection with Deep Learning
Scientists are beginning to use an Google deep learning AI to detect breast cancer. Deep learning is a branch of AI that utilizing neural networks to identify data patterns to then reach conclusions (gross oversimplification). Google “radiology assistant”, Lymph Node Assist (Lyna), can detect cancer by analyzing diagnostic radiology exams (CT, CAT, MRI, MRA etc) and recognizing cancer-like patterns within these scans. LYNA accurately detected cancer 99 percent of the time, even successfully detecting cancer on samples with minute traces of these cancer patterns. LYNA and deep learning technologies are proving to make work easier, more accurate and quicker in the medicine industry. What other applications of deep learning could affect other industries?
