An AI system which can detect Malaria, TB and Cervical Cancer in milli-seconds? IIT Delhi Researchers have built one

The IIT Delhi engineers from Department of electrical Engineering, have demonstrated a proof-of-concept (PoC) low-power rapid AI hardware implementation based microscopy diagnostic support system for four different diseases: Malaria, Tuberculosis, Cervical Cancer and Intestinal Parasite Infection.

This microscopy based diagnosis does not comes with the handicap of skilled-technicians.

“While several software AI models exist for healthcare and diagnostic related applications, need of the hour is to efficiently map these models on portable dedicated low-power, low-cost hardware to enable edge-AI systems accessible to all in low resource environment.”
