Supercomputer will analyse diseases patterns and provide computer aided diagnosis. The Heart Fund partners with 42.cx Center of Excellence for Artificial Intelligence to revolutionize the cure of heart diseases in developing countries
VIENNA, May 31, 2017 /CNW/ - 42.cx - Center of Excellence for Artificial Intelligence AG, based in Vienna, has just announced its partnership with The Heart Fund, a non-governmental organization to fight cardiovascular diseases. Together with The Heart Fund, 42.cx wants to solve public health challenges by modelizing diseases patterns through applied artificial intelligence to support THF doctors during their medical tasks. 42.cx will train its Supercomputer to generate predictive health models and to help to predict cardiovascular diseases by computer aided diagnosis. The generated prediction system will run on portable devices to disrupt healthcare in developing countries and to fight cardiovascular disease. "The Heart Fund combats cardiovascular diseases by offering access to care to millions of children in developing countries. For the first time in history with this partnership, artificial intelligence scientists have access to thousands of electrocardiograms (ECG), blood panels, evaluations and resulting diagnosis. This allows us to build more accurate models than ever before. With our technology a highly qualified diagnosis can be performed at thousands of different locations at the same time, around the clock anywhere in the world. It's practically like having the know-how and knowledge of the best cardiologic surgeons combined and being present at the same time anywhere.," explains Daniel Mattes, Founder and Executive Chairman of 42.cx. "We believe that only if true scientific power is being applied to the areas of research, ground-breaking results can be achieved. Our world-class team consists of scientists in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, mathematics, physics and economics, supported by data analysts and scientists, neural network engineers, machine learning scientists and software developers," adds Mattes.
