Feb. 2, 2021

Hologic announced a multi-year strategic collaboration with Google Cloud, featuring the integration of Google Cloud’s machine learning (ML) technologies with Hologic’s Genius Digital Diagnostics System to transform screening and accelerate the eradication of cervical cancer, according to a news release from Hologic.

Hologic said that Genius Digital Diagnostics is a digital cytology platform that combines artificial intelligence (AI) with advanced digital imaging to help identify pre-cancerous lesions and cancer cells in women. The company said it expects that the Genius Digital Diagnostics System will derive even more actionable insights from cytology slides for cytotechnologists and pathologists through the integration with Google’s ML technologies. Google Cloud also provides a secure and reliable cloud data architecture to further extend the system’s capabilities.

“Hologic is conducting research to explore the meaningful differences working at the intersection of AI and ML can have within diagnostics, improving laboratory performance, healthcare provider decision-making, and ultimately patient care,” the company said.

Genius Digital Diagnostics is CE-marked for diagnostic use in Europe and is not available for sale in the United States.
