diagnosed. Early diagnosis plays a very important role in the incidence of mortality from this
For this reason, Enzyme, a services and products company focused on solutions with
Artificial Intelligence and blockchain technology, together with Roche Diagnostics, a leading
company in the supply of diagnostic systems, and the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona, have
signed a collaboration pioneer to improve, more efficiently and quickly, the diagnosis of
colorectal cancer with Artificial Intelligence.
The main objective of this project is to develop a deep learning tool for the classification of
intestinal polypoid lesions, into 8 representative groups, thus allowing a faster and more
efficient diagnosis for all the doctors.
