Researchers from Stanford University have taken AI to the next level, turning computers into dermatologists, or, at least, basic skin cancer detectors. Through an image recognition algorithm, the computer program was able to detect a form of melanoma just as well as a group of dermatologists, suggests one study. The software may be available for public use in the future, as the researchers hope to one day enable smartphones to detect cancerous skin lesions as well. Read the full article here.
