Thyroid cancer, or the occurrence of rapid cell growth in the thyroid gland located near the neck, is the fastest growing cancer among women. Unsurprisingly, the need for a quick diagnosis of thyroid cancer has become ever more important.
After seeing what my little sister went through during her battle with the disease, I was determined to find a more efficient method to diagnose thyroid cancer using artificial intelligence in a way that was painless and non-invasive.
In my talk I will cover my research process from finding a dataset and getting initial results, to finding a mentor willing to help polish my results for submission to competitions. I also hope to inspire people that want to change the world with AI for the better. If a high schooler can do it, so can you!
