Google artificial intelligence promises to make a real revolution in the health sector and more particularly in breast cancer screening. Being an integral part of mathematical logic and computer science, AI comes to the aid of medicine to assist it in an efficient and valuable way! Find out exactly what it is.
Google artificial intelligence can better detect breast cancer
Based on American and British data, a study has just confirmed the success of Google artificial intelligence in the field of medicine. As mentioned above, this is screening for breast cancer, which is one of the two most deadly cancers in women. This is why establishing an early and effective diagnosis is crucial.
To better contribute to the good health of women, Google specialists have developed artificial intelligence and worked alongside oncologists with the aim of adapting it to the needs of medicine. The results of this experiment were published in the journal Nature and revealed that AI can detect disease more accurately than radiologists.
The research is based on thousands of mammograms performed in the United States and the United Kingdom. The technology was successful in reducing false positive cases by 1.2% in UK patients and 5.7% in US patients. On the false negative side, they were reduced by 2.7% and 9.4% respectively.
Unlike human specialists, no patient history was provided to Google artificial intelligence. This is one of the reasons for the success of this experiment. Awesome, isn't it? And what's more, experts hope the technology serves as a second opinion in the future.
For your information, this is far from the first time that artificial intelligence has shown itself to be more competent than humans when it comes to cancer screening. For example, in 2017, the Rockefeller Institute in New York confirmed that the technology is intended to be 1,000 times faster in analyzing brain cancer. Another study from the same year and from Stanford University points out that Google's artificial intelligence performs better analyzes of skin cancer than leading dermatologists.
While waiting for this technology to reach its peak, Google specialists are not wasting their time and are busy developing a tool that can detect lung cancer. A project whose grandiose success rate of 94.4% guarantees a revolution in contemporary medicine!
