  • Researchers in India have developed an artificial intelligence-based system to detect colorectal cancer with 95.24% accuracy, reported The Times of India.

  • "In the current manual approach for colonoscopy examination…observation bias may sometimes lead to an erroneous diagnosis," said researcher Kangkana Bora.

  • Study leader MK Bhuyan suggested this "AI-based solution can reduce the laborious task of physicians by sieving out the normal cases so that they can concentrate more on suspicious cases."

  • The research team plans to commercialise the technology in the future, according to the news source.
