Using A.I. to Transform Breast Cancer Care

Although I do not normally post articles about breast cancer, this article from the N.Y. Times intrigued me because the same principles I think, can be applied to ovarian cancer.

A. I. is "artificial intelligence" and Dr. Regina Barzilay, a computer science professor at M.I.T. and a recipient of the MacArthur genius award in 2017, herself a breast cancer survivor, is focusing her work on helping other women with breast cancer. Her goal is to develop algorithms to determine who is likely to develop breast cancer in the next five years, taking into account the subtle changes noted on mammograms.
