Teenager unleashes computer power for cancer diagnosis

Brittany Wenger: Can artificial intelligence do a better job than humans at cancer diagnosis?

She is only 19 but has already experimented with neural networks, built prototype software to help doctors diagnose breast cancer, won a $50,000 college scholarship from Google and been invited to the White House to showcase her research.

I've seen where some dogs can sense a cancer in humans before it is even been diagnosed. And approximately locate it too. They ought to be working on the smell of cancer.

They can also sense when a woman is pregnant. I'd go with the smell as well.
