Google’s lung cancer detection AI outperforms 6 human radiologists

Next to being the biggest search engine, Google also uses it resources for healthcare purposes such as lung cancer detection.

According to the World Health Organization, lung cancer is one of the most common causes of death globally with 2 million people dying annually.

Google AI researchers made a deep learning model that can detect lung cancer 5% more often on average than a group of 6 human experts. The model is trained with 42 000 CT scans from 15 000 different patients. It is now able to predict whether a patient has lung cancer, generate a risk score of bad tissue and identify the location of this bad tissue that is causing lung cancer.
