InnerEye – Assistive AI for Cancer Treatment

InnerEye – Assistive AI for Cancer Treatment

Established: October 7, 2008

InnerEye is a research project that uses state of the art artificial intelligence to build innovative image analysis tools to help doctors treat diseases such as cancer in a more targeted and effective way.

“…We are pursuing AI so that we can empower every person and every institution that people build with tools of AI so that they can go on to solve the most pressing problems of our society and our economy. That’s the pursuit.”.

Satya Nadella, keynote at Microsoft IGNITE 2016.

Project description

The project’s main focus is in the treatment of tumors and monitoring the progression of cancer in temporal studies.

InnerEye builds upon many years of research in computer vision and machine learning. It employs decision forests (as used already in Kinect and Hololens) to help radiation oncologists and radiologists deliver better care, more efficiently and consistently to their cancer patients.
