From The Verge:
Researchers at Stanford University have created an AI algorithm that can identify skin cancer as well as a professional doctor. The program was trained on nearly 130,000 images of moles, rashes, and lesions using a technique known as deep learning. It was then tested head-to-head against 21 human dermatologists, where its creators say it performed with an accuracy on par with humans (“at least” 91 percent as good). In the future, they suggest it could be used to create a mobile app for spotting skin cancer at home.
