MSTP Alumni Shinjini Kundu was awarded the 35 Innovators Under 35 2018 for her creation of an artificial-intelligence (AI) system that can decipher medical images. From the MIT Technology Review, "Kundu’s system allows humans to look through the eyes of the computer to discover otherwise imperceptible patterns that reveal the early disease process. She also trained the AI to pull out the disease markers from the images so that they can be seen on their own. That could help humans recognize them months or years before the onset of illness—so rather than just humans teaching AI, AI can teach us."
Congratulations to Kundu for being awarded 35 Innovators Under 35!
