AI bests the best human biochemist

Every day petabytes of medical images are created around the world. Biochemists, radiologists and doctors are looking at these images to detect what “might” be wrong. Researchers are looking at this trying to find ways for automating the process. Image recognition by computers has been the holy grail of artificial …
