Researchers at Google have developed an augmented reality microscope (ARM) that takes real-time data from a neural network trained to detect cancerous cells and displays it in the field of view of the pathologist viewing the images.

The prototype, which is configured to identify breast and prostate cancer cells, does not require hospitals or labs to replace their existing microscopes, as existing compound light microscopes can be retrofitted… more
