Cancer Data Science Pulse

The Cancer Data Science Pulse blog provides insights on trends, policies, initiatives, and innovation in the data science and cancer research communities from professionals dedicated to building a national cancer data ecosystem that enables new discoveries and reduces the burden of cancer.

Artificial Intelligence offers boundless possibilities, especially in the healthcare field. In a recent CBIIT Data Science Seminar, Dr. James Zou showed how Computer Vision (CV) is helping create a new data-driven “language of morphology” that allows researchers to be more precise in interpreting histological images. Just as computers help propel self-driving cars along busy roadways, CV offers a faster, less-subjective method for assessing disease.
