Google creates cancer detecting AR-powered microscope

Machine learning has the potential to fuel major technological developments in countless fields, with Alphabet’s X division already investigating agriculture and food production usage. A team inside Google is now using it for cancer research and detection with a prototype microscope.

A team at Google Brain — the company’s AI research division — on April 19 presented an in review paper about detecting cancer using machine learning and a modified microscope that features an augmented reality display.

At the moment, cancer diagnosis is primarily achieved with compound light microscopes. Newer deep learning techniques, however, require a digital representation of microscopic tissue.

Google’s augmented reality microscope (ARM) combines both methods, it blends the expertise of automated machine learning systems with human expertise.
