Artificial Intelligence Gets an A+ for Accuracy Diagnosing Breast Cancer
BIDCHMSlogoA team of researchers at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and Harvard Medical School (HMS) in Boston have been working on developing artificial intelligence (AI) tools with potential to significantly change and improve accuracy in cancer and other disease diagnosis. Noting that pathology methods for diagnosing disease have stayed largely the same for the past 100 years with tissue samples manually reviewed under a microscope, the investigative work suggests diagnostic accuracy can be improved by using computers to interpret pathology images. BeckAHarvard"Our AI method is based on deep learning, a machine-learning algorithm used for a range of applications including speech recognition and image recognition," said Dr. Andrew Beck director of Bioinformatics at the Cancer Research Institute at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) in press release. Beck, who is also an associate professor at Harvard Medical School said the approach teaches machines to interpret the complex patterns and structure observed in real-life data by buildin
