AI system outperforms experts in spotting breast cancer

An AI programme has outperformed clinical experts in detecting breast cancer. The study showed that the AI system developed by Google Health could identify cancers with a similar degree of accuracy to radiologists while reducing the number of false-positive results by 5.7% in a US-based group. The system could potentially make breast screening more effective and ease the burden on health services.

Not surprising. Actually ai programming is pretty cool. Make a mother program that designs dozens to thousands of programs which either pass or fail a test. Then takes variations on that. By the end they sometimes don't even know why a program works. *I am not a programmer, just an outside observer*
