Big training set of images...neural network...you guys know the drill.

Though the algorithm is very accurate overall, its inventors want it used for a specific role: diagnosing rare types of prostate cancer cells that human doctors often fail to recognize because of their unfamiliarity. 

 

That sounds fine, but what happens in a few years when the algorithm improves and is better at spotting ALL types of prostate cancer cells than human doctors?
