AI Detects Cancer - GoogleNet

AI Detects Cancer

Google's new AI system can diagnose cancer more accurately than humans. The system is called GoogleNet. GoogleNet identifies suspected cancer regions for a pathologist to review. It also helps measure the tumor size more accurately than ever before. The AI system was tested against an expert pathologist to examine cancer forms.

The doctor achieved a 73% accuracy rate whereas GoogleNet scored an astonishing 89% accuracy rate. Google does not expect this AI system to replace pathologists as the system cannot detect other irregularities that a human pathologist can pick out.
