An overview of MIT's Computer Science Artificial Intelligence Laboratory's (CSAIL) “in-body GPS" system , called ReMix. Using low-power wireless radio signals, researchers (led by Professor Dina Katabi) can track the accurate location of tumours. They one day hope to be able to use the technology to track and image pills as they move through the digestive system, or use an advanced version of the algorithm to help guide cancer radiation therapy.
