Artificial Intelligence Can Identify Skin Cancer

txt


Scientists state that Artificial intelligence can identify skin cancer in photographs with the same accuracy as doctors

Only one in 20 skin cancers are melanoma, yet the tumour accounts for three-quarters of skin cancer deaths.

 

The experiment, detailed in the journal Nature, then tested the AI against 21 trained skin cancer doctors.

 

However, the computer software cannot make a full diagnosis, as this is normally confirmed with a tissue biopsy.

 

Dr Esteva said the system now needed to be tested alongside doctors in the clinic.

 

"The application of AI to healthcare is, we believe, an incredibly exciting area of research that can be leveraged to achieve a great deal of societal good," he said.

 

Brett Kuprel, another researcher on the project, added: "The end-to-end training and transfer learning approaches we used can be applied to many problems in healthcare, provided there is a large enough dataset.
