AI trained to analyse cancer images

Researchers at the University of Jyväskylä trained an artificial intelligence computer to count cells from histopathological cancer tumour images. Thus, the researchers have taken the first step towards a digital service centre based on artificial intelligence. The conventional methods employed by doctors and pathologists in histopathological work see them analysing tumour tissue samples visually with the help of software.
