The Georgia Institute of Technology and Ovarian Cancer Institute researchers are using machine learning algorithms to predict how patients will respond to cancer-fighting drugs.

Advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence are allowing researchers to create more targeted precision medicine-based treatment using predictive analytics. By analyzing large amounts of complex data, clinicians can provide individualized treatments, improving patient outcomes.

“In medicine, we need to be able to make predictions,” professor at the School of Biological Sciences and director of the Integrated Cancer Research Center in the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience at the Georgia Institute of Technology, John F. McDonald, said in a press release.
