Google present a great combination between Machine Learning and augmented reality to help pathologists to identify cancers. The presented device is “only” a lightly modified light microscope with real-time analyzing computer. The result is directly displayed in the pathologist field of view.
Applications of deep learning to medical disciplines including ophthalmology, dermatology, radiology, and pathology have recently shown great promise to increase both the accuracy and availability of high-quality healthcare to patients around the world. At Google, we have also published results showing that a convolutional neural network is able to detect breast cancer metastases in lymph nodes at a level of accuracy comparable to a trained pathologist.
