Path Math: How AI Can Find a Way Around Pathologist Shortage

Ever since a Dutch cloth merchant accidentally discovered bacteria in 1676, microscopes have been a critical tool for medicine. Today’s microscopes are 800,000 times more powerful than the human eye, but they still need a person to scrutinize what’s under the lens. That person is usually a pathologist — and that’s a problem. Worldwide, there Read article >
