Andrew Conrad, head of the Life Sciences team at the Google X research lab told that his team is working on a project involves detecting cancer by swallowing a pill.
The pill is packed with tiny magnetic particles, which can travel through a patient’s bloodstream, in search of malignant cells and report their findings to a sensor device which you wear.
Data from the sensor could be uploaded or stored on the Internet until it can be interpreted by a doctor, he said.
Google is looking for commercial partners who would bring the product to market and handle its practical uses. When asked about privacy of patients data, Conrad said, “We have no interest in that.”
“We’re the inventors and creators of the technology,” he added.
