14 January 2022
The aim of this work is to demonstrate how emerging technology and artificial intelligence (AI) in particular, becomes a very useful tool in the diagnoses of a variety of diseases such as cancer. Using a theoretical framework based on the definition of AI, the impact of this technology on human life is evaluated, as well as its applications in the medical field and the risks it entails.
The project also includes a practical portion that makes use of a machine learning algorithm. Its aim is to help predict breast cancer using collected data. This algorithm was able to detect breast cancer in patients with a reliability of 95%, demonstrating the importance of early detection of this disease.
