How AI is helping cancer patients

Founded in 2021, Hurone trained Gukiza on open-source patient databases to recognize the progression and side effects of various forms of cancer. 

By monitoring patients remotely in what Kingsley Ndoh, Hurone’s founder, calls “underrepresented populations,” the AI is designed to feed doctors with real-time data.
