In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Google Assistant is rolling out a series of features to help people learn more about the disease and take early steps to protect themselves.
This includes information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on the importance of early detection and mammography. With over 250,000 new cases of breast cancer diagnosed in women in the United States each year, it’s important to arm yourself with knowledge about the disease.
So this month, when you ask Google Assistant how it’s doing, you might just get a response about breast cancer awareness. And that’s just one small way we’re working to make sure you have the information you need to stay healthy and informed.
Google Health is collaborating with Northwestern Medicine on a new clinical research study that will investigate whether artificial intelligence (AI) models can shorten the time to diagnosis, narrow the assessment gap and improve the patient experience.
The study will use de-identified data from women who have had a mammogram at Northwestern Medicine, one of the largest breast cancer screening programs in the United States. To learn more about this effort, visit its website.
