    This bright young gal is incredibly smart and talented! I expect we'll be hearing more about her in the future!

    Congrats to Brittany Wenger! :clap:

    Since WS is predominately female members, I'm surprised that this story hasn't generated more views and no likes.

    This 17 year old gal, Brittany Wenger, taught her computer to detect malignant tumors (breast cancer) with about a 99% success rate! No one thinks this is exciting?

    Lightbulb moment! Let me provide a youtube link to an ABC story about Brittany's Google Award, as maybe that was the problem! I hear Fox News is not well received by some folks around here.

    If you like this story, how about a :woohoo: for Brittany Wenger?

    Frankly, the Fox News story & interview of Brittany is far better. :)

    Can't see or hear the videos at work, but from what Liz has said this is great. Hope that means no more radiated images and smashing of tender areas.

    Keep up the good work Brittany and Thank You!

    We have had some pretty in depth discussions on this site about young people and the culture of entitlement that seems to come with many teens nowadays.

    I am always excited to see a story about a teen with goals, aspirations and the motivation to pursue them.

    Good for you Brittany! Thank you for your contribution!

    Not only is Brittany's discovery fantastic in and of itself, the procedure is less invasive and less expensive!! :woohoo:
