Microsoft using computer technology to cure cancer, this is not a hole in the brain – Sohu Technolog

Microsoft: to cure cancer with the use of computer technology, it is not in the open the brain hole technology – Sohu Microsoft global research laboratory, computer scientists and programmers, engineers and other experts are trying to solve a variety of cutting-edge issues in the computer industry: from system design and safety to quantum computing and data visualization, not a number. But some of the scientists, engineers and programmers have a different goal. What they are trying to overcome is one of the most complex and deadly challenges facing humanity: cancer. In most cases, they are using the algorithm and the computer, instead of test tubes and beakers. As biologist Jasmin, a senior fellow at the Cambridge Institute for research in, Microsoft, said: "we are trying to change the way biological research is done everyday. "Look at these cross-border computer science and medicine. How people with brain hole wide open: by visually combing all the data can be used to study, a team of researchers from Microsoft and Natural Language Processing choose to use machine learning technology to help oncologists find global personalized cancer the most effective treatments for patients. Another work is a combination of machine learning and computer vision, make radiologists a more detailed understanding of patients with tumor progress. A team of researchers has developed powerful algorithms to help scientists understand the development of cancer and the most appropriate treatment options. In addition, a team has made great efforts to allow scientists to one day be able to program cells to treat a variety of diseases, including cancer. Zhou Yizhen, a senior vice president of Microsoft, said that although the differences between the various projects seem huge, but Microsoft’s overall principle of coping with cancer can not be separated from the basic methods. The first approach is based on cancer and the process of physiological change is an information processing system. This means that tools for modeling and reasoning about computational processes such as programming languages, compilers, and model detectors can also be used to model and control the flow of biological processes. Another approach is more emphasis on data driven. It is based on the idea that researchers can apply machine learning techniques to the vast amount of available biological data, and use these complex analytical tools to better understand and treat cancer. The two approach has some common ground, including the core idea that success depends on the expertise of biologists and computer scientists to contribute to the problem. Dr. Zhou Yizhen said: "cooperation between biologists and computer scientists is essential to solve the problem. Microsoft has every reason to invest in bold and widespread use of computer science to fight cancer. For Microsoft, this is also in line with our core mission: to force people, extraordinary achievements. This is only the first step." In addition, Microsoft’s huge investment in cloud computing is naturally suitable for the need for a lot of computing power to solve major problems in the field. In the long run, Microsoft is also reasonable to do so: to provide customers with tools to invest, no matter what platform they choose, even if one day the computer is no longer based on silicon chips,"相关的主题文章:
