Chinese Scientists Develop AI-powered Cancer Diagnosis System[Oct 10, 2019]

Chinese scientists have developed an artificial intelligence-powered system for diagnosing upper gastrointestinal cancers through the analysis of endoscopic imaging data. The system, based on data from more than 50,000 endoscopic images of upper gastrointestinal cancer patients and over 120,000 endoscopic images of non-patients, has registered a 96 percent accuracy rate in diagnosing upper gastrointestinal cancers and 90 percent accuracy in diagnosing such cancers at an early stage.
