Cervical Cancer Detector

Health icon, disabled. A red heart with a cardiac rhythm running through it.

The objective of this project is to develop a cervical cancer detector using wrinkle pattern recognition and pattern recognition technology. The device can analyze cell samples with high accuracy by learning large amounts of pattern characters. This project will help decrease the cost of screening, provide a cost-efficient method for low-income countries to set up a screening program, and reduce the cervical cancer incident rate. Future work would involve learning different wrinkle patterns for other types of cancer cells and making the device applicable for all cancer types.
