Blindness remains a major public health problem across the world. The use of AI to improve disease detection and prevention is a critical step for the healthcare industry and a giant step for humankind. With Netra.AI, Sankara Eye Foundation and Leben Care have leveraged the power of Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and built-in Intel® Deep Learning (DL) Boost to accurately detect Diabetic Retinopathy and enable timely treatment to effectively combat avoidable vision impairment and blindness in diabetic patients. Amblyopia or lazy eye is among the leading causes of permanent vision impairment in children. What if we could use a smartphone image and Ai to analyse the same? Sankara Eye Hospital has also collaborated with independent researchers on Kanna, a model to identify amblyopia risk factors.

This webinar will focus on the current and future possibilities of using AI to eliminate and prevent blindness and how technology and domain would need to collaborate for effective solutions.
