Google Develops AI-Powered Microscope for Detecting Cancerous Tumors


Google has unveiled an innovative microscope model that leverages augmented reality and artificial intelligence technologies to support specialized medical professionals in disease diagnosis, including cancerous tumors.

This advanced microscope was developed through a collaboration between Google and the U.S. Department of Defense. It can analyze visual indicators in real-time, such as heatmaps and object boundaries, to detect the presence of cancerous cells or other diseases in samples of human tissues.

Although Google announced this project in 2018, it has not been used yet in patient diagnoses. Currently, there are 13 initial models of Google's AI-powered augmented reality microscope, which require further testing before becoming an assisting tool for doctors in their daily practices.

According to Google, the goal is to integrate this system into the optical microscopes used in hospitals and clinics, enabling them to provide a variety of visual annotations such as texts, arrows, lines, heatmaps, and animations.

As reported by the financial and business news specialist CNBC, the U.S. Department of Defense may engage in negotiations with Google to distribute the new microscopes through the military, with the aim of making them available to certain government entities before the end of the current year.

Reports suggest that the cost of these advanced microscopes ranges from $90,000 to $100,000, placing them beyond the reach of local healthcare providers in the United States.

Google considers the healthcare sector as one of the crucial areas for deploying artificial intelligence. According to previous reports, Google's total investments in artificial intelligence in the past decade have exceeded two hundred billion U.S. dollars.
