Machine learning based cancer diagnostics

Search engine giant Yandex is using its advanced machine learning capabilities to detect cancer predisposition.

Yandex Data Factory has partnered with AstraZeneca to develop the RAY platform, which analyzes DNA testing results, generates a report about patient genome mutations, and provides treatment recommendations and side effect information. Testing will begin next month.

The two companies have signed a cooperation agreement  to launch big data projects in epidemiology, pathologic physiology, diagnostics and treatment of diseases (focused on contagious diseases, cancer, endocrinology, cardiology, pulmonology, and psychiatry).
