Artificial intelligence helps diagnose leukemia

#artificialintelligence

Lymph nodes become swollen, there is weight loss and fatigue, as well as fevers and infections - these are typical symptoms of malignant B-cell lymphomas and related leukemias. If such a cancer of the lymphatic system is suspected, the physician takes a blood or bone marrow sample and sends it to specialized laboratories. This is where flow cytometry comes in. Flow cytometry is a method in which the blood cells flow past measurement sensors at high speed. The properties of the cells can be detected depending on their shape, structure or coloring.


Artificial Intelligence Not Yet Ready for Clinical Breast Cancer Screening – Consumer Health …

FRIDAY, Sept. 17, 2021 (HealthDay News) — Artificial intelligence (AI) systems for the early detection of breast cancer from digital mammography …


Letting AI hold the public purse?!

#artificialintelligence

Each year, national and local governments determine the relative priorities of services to allocate funding. How would AI spend the cash? What makes more sense for a vibrant society -- spending on economic development or growth, spending on education, international development, social care, libraries? What would ideal balance look like? If this question sounds familiar, it's not the first time we've tried to apply artificial intelligence (AI) to making this decision.


Artificial intelligence helps diagnose leukemia

#artificialintelligence

The presence of cancer of the lymphatic system is often determined by analyzing samples from the blood or bone marrow. A team led by Prof. Dr. Peter Krawitz from the University of Bonn had already shown in 2020 that artificial intelligence can help with the diagnosis of such lymphomas and leukemias. The technology fully utilizes the potential of all measurement values and increases the speed as well as the objectivity of the analyses compared to established processes. The method has now been further developed so that even smaller laboratories can benefit from this freely accessible machine learning method – an important step towards clinical practice. The study has now been published in the journal "Patterns".


When is AI actually AI? Exploring the true definition of artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Today, the term artificial intelligence (AI) is thrown around rather generously. As businesses around the world become more open to making waves and ditching legacy technologies in their quest to become data-driven, an ever-increasing number of tech deployments are claiming to use AI or machine learning (ML). But, frankly, it's often not true AI that is being used. The problem is, AI doesn't have a widely recognised definition, so it's hard to draw a line between what is AI and what isn't. In recent years, multiple businesses have invested in tools and technologies to help them understand their data, ultimately looking to maximise efficiency and provide the best possible experience for their customers.


Artificial intelligence technique in detection of early esophageal cancer

#artificialintelligence

Esophageal cancer (EC) is the eighth most common cancer and the sixth leading cause of cancer death worldwide[1]. EC mainly consists of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). EAC is the most common pathological type in Western countries, more than 40% of patients with EAC are diagnosed after the disease has metastasized, and the 5-year survival rate is less than 20%[2,3]. Although the incidence of EAC has been increasing globally, ESCC remains the most common pathological type (80%) of all ECs with the highest incidence across a'cancer belt' extending from East Africa and across the Middle East to Asia. Only 20% of patients with ESCC survive longer than 3 years, primarily due to late-stage diagnosis[4].


GSK teams with King's College to use AI to fight cancer

The Guardian

The pharmaceuticals firm GSK has struck a five-year partnership with King's College London to use artificial intelligence to develop personalised treatments for cancer by investigating the role played by genetics in the disease. The tie-up, which involves 10 of the drug maker's artificial intelligence experts working with 10 oncology specialists from King's across their labs, will use computing to "play chess with cancer", working out why only a fifth of patients respond well to immuno-oncology treatments. Dr Kim Branson, the global head of artificial intelligence and machine learning at GSK, said only 20% of patients respond well to the new oncology drugs that harness the body's immune system to fight cancer. "Sometimes it works like a game buster … and it wipes out the cancer. We'd like that to work all the time. This could be transformative," Branson said.


Breast cancer classification

#artificialintelligence

Features are computed from a digitized image of a fine needle aspirate (FNA) of a breast mass. They describe characteristics of the cell nuclei present in the image. This database is also available through the UW CS ftp server: ftp ftp.cs.wisc.edu Also can be found on UCI Machine Learning Repository: https://archive.ics.uci.edu/ml/datasets/Breast The mean, standard error and "worst" or largest (mean of the three largest values) of these features were computed for each image, resulting in 30 features.


Redefining Cancer Treatment- The Memorial Sloan Way

#artificialintelligence

Whenever a patient has symptoms of cancer, the cancer tumour is taken out and sequenced. Genetic information in the tumor cell is stored in the form of DNA. It is then transcribed to form RNA which is then translated to form proteins/amino acids. In case of a mutation, or a mistake in DNA sequence, the resultant amino acid is affected giving rise to a variation for the particular gene. Thousands of genetic mutations may be present in the sequence. We need to distinguish the malignant mutations (drivers leading to tumour growth) from the benign (passenger) ones.


Global Big Data Conference

Here are the top massive failures of artificial intelligence in AI history to date. The creation of artificial intelligence has been postponed for several millennia, and current AI technology is still far from being able to re-design itself in any significant sense. Even now, though, things with artificial intelligence may go wrong. Unfortunately, AI systems may run amok on their own, with no outside intervention. This example is one of the popular AI failures. Deep learning, a collection of methods commonly used to construct AI, began its triumphant march around 20 years ago with the breakthrough in image recognition, also known as computer vision.
