Core Tip

Core Tip: Artificial intelligence (AI) helps us understand the role of the microbiome in gastric cancer (GC) and further promote the development precision medicine. AI can be applied in the following three aspects: (1) AI improves the diagnostic accuracy for GC based on big data and gastric microbiome; (2) AI aids pathologists to diagnose gastric biopsies rapidly by sensitively detecting low abundance microbes; and (3) AI regulates individual’s dietary intake by giving new insight into host-microbiome interactions.
