Google Science Fair grand prize winner Brittany Wenger whom you see on the far right above has joined other winners on stage in their respective age categories, and her place on the podium is thoroughly deserved. After all, she has managed to develop an artificial computer brain which is capable of performing a diagnosis of breast cancer with a 99% sensitivity. Brittany Wenger, aged 17, successfully wrote a breast cancer-diagnosing app that is based on an artificial neural network, leading her to pick up the grand prize at the Google Science Fair a couple of days ago.
What inspired Wenger to make sure her computer brain worked? Well, this is due to the fact that the least invasive diagnostic test for breast cancer, known as “fine needle aspirate”, is by far and large the least certain one as well, with unclear results popping up often while requiring patients to go through a second biopsy with a bigger needle – and some other cases even require surgery. Kudos to her for helping make this world a better place!
