17-year-old Brittany Wenger develops AI to diagnose cancer - TechAmok

17-year-old Brittany Wenger develops AI to diagnose cancer - [briefly]
08:48 PM EDT - Aug,11 2012 - post a comment

A 17-year-old girl from Florida has spent the last several years of her life developing an 'artificial brain' that can diagnose cancer. Using various computer-programming languages, Brittany Wenger created a cloud-based artificial neural network that can assess tissue samples for signs of breast cancer. Wenger wanted to design a tool for doctors to examine and diagnose cancer without making the process too invasive. The artificial neural network along with a procedure called Fine Need Aspirate may help to ease the process of having lumps examined. The artificial neural network has data collected from 7.6 million trials, and according to Wenger, the Java-based artificial brain is 99.1 percent sensitive to malignancy.
