In what could prove to be a major win for Artificial Intelligence, IBM's AI product named "Watson" was able to identify a rare form of Leukemia after Doctors failed to diagnose the exact cause for the woman not responding to the apparent treatment given.
The mentioned incident took place in Tokyo, Japan. It is said that the patient's genetic information was compared with 20 million clinical oncology studies before it could reach to the conclusion.
Artificial Intelligence is surely taking huge leaps day by day, be it in Healthcare, gaming, scientific or any other field.
