AI to predict cardiac disease

It was a happy news for cardiac patients, as the new initiative between Microsoft and Apollo Hospital are on its way to create new machine learning Artificial Intelligence algorithms, to forecast patient risk associated with heart disease.

“Cardiac disease is amongst India’s leading causes of mortality and morbidity, which is exacting a toll on the health and well-being of our citizens,” said Sangita Reddy, Joint Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals.

The new study further gives the doctor the best move to initialize treatment plans and lowers mortality rate associated with the condition. Microsoft previously has started a new innovative platform called Microsoft Intelligent Network for Eyecare (MINE), which analyses vision problems.

“AI Network for healthcare aims to democratise AI by empowering healthcare providers with faster, intuitive and predictable solutions and reducing the disease burden. The systems of intelligence we create can change the lives of patients and the work of medical practitioners enabling accessible healthcare to all,” said Peter Lee, Corporate Vice President (AI and Research), Microsoft.
