Vicepresident Joe Biden used Norway as an example when he spoke at the Social Good Summit this week. Biden was appointed by Barack Obama to lead the “Cancer Moonshot” project. The project aims to make a decade’s worth of advances in cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and care in just 5 years.
The collaboration between Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Norwegian Cancer Registry is a central part of this strategy. The collaboration, facilitated by Oslo Cancer Cluster, is aiming to optimalize cervical cancer screening by using machine learning and neural networks to look at historical data.
