Ozy recently featured the Autoscope in an article about artificial intelligence and how it is revolutionizing the way we detect and treat disease.
Every year malaria infects and kills millions of people, mostly children in Sub-Saharan Africa. With few trained microscopists in the region, many cases go undiagnosed and untreated. By mimicking the neural networks found in the human brain – a method known as “deep learning”, scientists at IV Lab have enabled the Autoscope to detect the malaria parasite from blood films on microscope slides.
