Google Develops Augmented Reality Microscope to Better Detect Cancer
Google AI researchers developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that can accurately detect cancer — prostate and breast cancer so far — in a standard microscope in real time. Besides its potential with cancer, this technology may be helpful in diagnosing other diseases and in several other research areas. Findings of the study, titled “An

    First, I wonder when this will be commercially available. Second, I would speculate that with the technology we have, it should be possible to create an algorithm to determine Gleason grade and amount of that grade and come up with an automated path report. Those having expertise in special areas of pathology are using our own “algorithms” and often the mental approach that is taken in viewing tissue under the microscope is fixed along the lines of our own algorithms. Thus it should be possible to emulate that with a software program and avoid the very frequent mis-staging that occurs with PC and other neoplastic diseases.
