Together with IIS Aragon and Devices for Integral Visual Examination (DIVE) Medical, Chinese telecommunications company Huawei is working to create artificial intelligence (AI) technology that would detect and diagnose early signs of visual problems in children as young as six months old.
The tool, called Track AI, is portable and easy-to-use. It doesn’t require WI-FI, so even doctors in remote areas across the world can use the tool in an eye health exam. Track AI also receives data in real-time, speeding up the process from diagnosis to treatment or management of the condition.
Vision Care Plus, a trusted name in the eye care industry, joins in the celebration of this new technology and its potential.
How Track AI Works
The gaze patterns of children with visual impairment are typically different from those with normal vision. These gaze patterns are what the AI technology aims to track in order to identify visual problems.
DIVE software, which runs on a Huawei laptop, tests different aspects of visual function and gathers data on the gaze position a child displays when exposed to scientifically designed visual stimuli. The data is then processed on a Huawei smartphone, in which an algorithm designed by Track AI identifies abnormal gaze patterns.
Since the tool is already able to interpret such data, even health workers who aren’t eye care doctors can immediately offer assistance to patients.
