Why Hawai’i is an Important Place for Cancer Research

When Hawaii comes to mind we usually associate it with exotic images of big wave surfers, sunshine and lava. They are all true, but what is missing from the picture is the AI Precision Health Institute in the University of Hawaii Cancer Center which lies at the seashore and is enjoying a breathtaking view to Kaka’ako Waterfront Park. The institute is using advanced technologies, including machine learning and deep learning to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Their research is unique because they study how cancer affects people with different ethnic, cultural and environmental characteristics.
