Can artificial intelligence bring down cancer deaths?
The death rate from cancer in the US has dropped 27% over the past 25 years, according to annual statistics reporting from the American Cancer Society. This decline translates to about 1.5% per year and more than 2.6 million deaths avoided between 1991 and 2016. Still, in 2019 there will be an estimated 1,762,450 new cancer cases diagnosed and 606,880 cancer deaths in the United States alone. We are interested to find out about new strategies to bring this still huge number down.
