Artificial intelligence project to identify skin cancer based on machine learning algorithm works as good as a doctor

Universal access to health care was on the minds of computer scientists at Stanford when they set out to create an artificially intelligent diagnosis algorithm for skin cancer. They made a database of nearly 130,000 skin disease images and trained their algorithm to visually diagnose potential cancer. From the very first test, it performed with … Continue reading Artificial intelligence project to identify skin cancer based on machine learning algorithm works as good as a doctor

Synthetic binding protein called "NS1 Monobody" found to inhibit common cancer causing (RAS) mutation

Monobody NS1 binds to H-RAS or K-RAS protein and blocksRAS function by disrupting the protein's ability to form active molecular pairs. Credit: John P. O'Bryan, et al. Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have identified a new way to block the action of genetic mutations found in nearly 30 percent of all cancers. Mutations in genes … Continue reading Synthetic binding protein called "NS1 Monobody" found to inhibit common cancer causing (RAS) mutation
