    IBM Research explores cognitive computing technology to help recognize skin cancer

    Date added: 17 Dec 2014

    As part of a collaborative effort with Memorial Sloan Kettering, IBM is researching the application of cognitive computing to analyze dermatological images of skin lesions with the goal of assisting clinicians in the identification of various cancerous disease states. The technology, which learns by identifying specific patterns in medical images, has the potential to increase the number of cases detected and help clinicians make earlier diagnoses.
