Google and the Department of Defense are building an AI-powered microscope to help doctors spot cancer

Summary: The Department of Defense and Google have developed an Augmented Reality Microscope (ARM) to assist pathologists in diagnosing cancer. The ARM outlines cancer locations and severity, aiding pathologists’ workflow. It addresses workforce shortages and increasing caseloads in pathology. While still in the early stages, it shows promise for remote labs and pathology training. The ARM costs $90,000 to $100,000 and complements digital pathology systems. The Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) seeks to make the ARM available to government users and aims for widespread use, potentially revolutionizing cancer diagnosis.
