AI assists with early ovarian cancer detection

Software company TPP has developed artificial intelligence that can help oncologists detect ovarian cancer earlier than physicians, according to CNBC.

Frank Hester, CEO of the company, said that the AI can identify ovarian cancer in more than 50 percent of cases up to two years before a physician based on patients' medical records. He is lending his technology to physicians and nurses throughout the U.K.

TPP has a partnership with the U.K.'s National Health Services. Per the agreement, the technology company has access to more than 50 million patient records. With the data, TPP has been able to develop AI programs to help physicians.
