Data Science News: AI Detection of Skin Cancer

As the third Data Science Bowl focuses on early detection of lung cancer using patient scans, researchers at Stanford University recently developed an algorithm to detect skin cancer from photographs. This algorithm, which matches the performance of dermatologists when diagnosing skin lesions, could have a significant effect on remote diagnosis, especially given the team’s goal of adapting it for use on a smartphone. Read more on Stanford News about how a “Deep learning algorithm does as well as dermatologists in identifying skin cancer.”
