Google Applies its Map Algorithm to the Human Body
University of New South Wales is mapping our bodies at the cellular level with familiar tech
A team of scientists and engineers from multiple organizations and continents is working on mapping our bodies at the cellular level.
Using semiconductor technology, University of New South Wales professor Melisa Knothe Tate is leading a team driving this potentially game-changing expansion of our knowledge of our bodies.
With the help of Google, Zeiss, Brown University and Stanford, data from thousands of human hip studies amounting to 25 years of work got analyzed in two weeks. Google took that data and turned it into a map of the body’s structures in that area using the same algorithms it applies to its Google Maps app.
