A new technology that identifies healthy embryos
Life Whisperer, a new technology that identifies healthy embryos, has been labelled a game changer for couples struggling to conceive. The world-first IVF technology developed in South Australia uses artificial intelligence to compare images of new embryos with those that have previously led to successful pregnancies. Currently, doctors have to rely on the naked eye, and a microscope, to determine the healthiest embryo. https://7news.com.au/news/sa/revolutionary-ivf-treatment-uses-artificial-intelligence-to-find-healthy-embryos-c-76007

Lung Cancer Detection AI Outperforms Human Radiologists
In partnership with Northwestern Medicine, Google researchers created an AI system that detects lung cancer from CT scans better than well-trained humans. The model was trained using more than 42,000 CT scans taken from 15,000 patients during the National Institutes of Health (NIH) study conducted in 2002. Compared to six expert radiologists, when analyzing these CT scans, the model proved to detect cancer five percent more often, with an eleven percent reduction in false positives. https://venturebeat.com/2019/05/20/googles-lung-cancer-detection-ai-outperforms-6-human-radiologists/

A Custom Post-Mastectomy Bra for Cancer Survivors
Having an idea to create a custom bra for women who have had a mastectomy, Lisa Marks combined technology with the craft of handmade lace. Firstly, the AI scans the wearer to produce a pattern of a lace that is as symmetrical as possible. Then, the craftspeople use the scanning result to handcraft the lace. The bra does not use underwire, which tends to hurt post-surgery sensitive skin. http://www.lisamarks.com/work#/parametric-lace-1/
