Deep learning for cancer research

A recent interesting news from Stanford regarding identification of skin cancer using deep leaning for images.

A different project featured by NVIDIA is using deep learning for breast cancer research, where they claim that the error went down 85%.

Unrelated, I heard today about Grail who raised 100M$ for cancer detection in blood tests. Grail raised money from Amazon, Google, and Microsoft (Bill Gates).  Looking at their career page they are also looking for deep learning researchers.

Another interesting company is Zebra Medical Research which shares medical data with researchers in return for a fraction of future revenues.

Following this blog post publication, my friend Assaf Araki from Intel sent me a reminder for Intel's cloud cancer research initiative. Broad MIT institute joined last year.
