Suomalaistutkijan kehittämä mikroskooppi näyttää syöpäsolut seinän kokoisella kosketusnäytöllä (in Finnish)

April 24, 2015

Satoja vuosia on tehty niin, että asiantuntija on katsonut mikroskooppiin ja tulkinnut, mitä näkee. Kokenut ekspertti on perehtynyt tuhansiin näytteisiin ja muodostanut itselleen sisäisen algoritmin, jonka perusteella erottaa poikkeukset. Koneelle on kuitenkin mahdollista kehittää vielä roimasti enemmän kokemusta digitaalisten biopankkien miljoonien solu- ja kudosnäytteiden avulla.
