Presenting the Global Top 100 outstanding projects: Artificial Intelligence-Based Referral System for Patients With Diabetic Retinopathy in Jalisco
This project provides an inspiring example of an AI-based referral system for patients with diabetic retinopathy. Aware of the high prevalence of diabetes and a shortage of ophthalmologists and eye illness detections services in the Mexican State of Jalisco, the founding members of this
project developed an AI model based on deep convolutional neural networks (DCNN) to enable a timelier detection of Diabetic Retinopathy in people’s eyes. The trained models preprocess and evaluate the suitability and quality and classify relevant ocular documentation with an exceptional specificity and sensitivity on local data.
