GIs in London using AI, 'space tech' to detect bowel cancer: 4 details

London gastroenterologists are using artificial intelligence and space satellites to detect bowel cancer in its early stages, according to Reuters.

Four details:

1. When a physician is performing a colonoscopy, the live video feed is analyzed by a neural network trained to detect colon polyps that can develop into bowel cancer.

2. Due to their large file size, the images are stored in the cloud through space satellites rather than on computers.

3. The technology can help GIs lower the margin of error in colonoscopies, allowing them to detect polyps they may have missed otherwise.

4. The technology is set to undergo a clinical pilot study in the next year and is expected to be released in the next two years.
