Modern medicine suffers from a peculiar curse of abundance - the ease of obtaining digital images of tissue affected by the disease goes beyond the ability of their analysis. Unfortunately, in this area there are no universal methods. They must be individually adapted and profiled. Computers with a software characterized by a certain intelligence and ability to learn from examples help doctors-pathomorphologists. This is, in application to cancer, what Michał Kurek deals with. He navigates smoothly at the intersection of three disciplines: medicine, mathematics and computer science. And such combinations are now the most interesting areas of scientific exploration.
