A Ghanaian teenager, who taught himself software programming, has designed a predictive analytics model using artificial intelligence to diagnose breast cancer.

19-year old Mustapha Diyanol Haqq from Kumasi, the capital of the country’s Ashanti Region, drew inspiration from “seeing how the big tech companies used innovation to solve some of the world’s biggest problems.”

He subsequently decided to learn to code. “I looked online for any free courses that could help me develop coding skills and completed as many as I could,” he told SAP News.

Mustapha’s predictive model can tell if a breast cancer tumour is Malignant (Cancerous) or Benign (Not Cancerous). It can also predict if malignant cancer would reoccur over a period of time. Click to read more.
