Professor Wiro Niessen of DTL Partners TU Delft and Erasmus MC has been appointed Simon Stevin Meester 2015. He receives this important distinction from technology foundation STW for his research into computer systems that can predict which disease a person may have, long before they feel ill. The computer makes these predictions based on tens of thousands of MRI and CT scans from both healthy and diseased persons, in combination with the attached clinical histories. Using these as examples, the computer learns to recognise disease patterns.
