NeuTigers and Rajant Begin Validation Testing for CovidDeep: AI-Powered Solution to Screen for SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 by Analyzing Smart Devices' Built-In Sensor Data
PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- NeuTigers, a leading-edge startup that is revolutionizing the next generation of energy/latency-efficient artificial intelligence (AI), has teamed up with Rajant Corporation, to bring new solutions to the world. As a first step, both companies are addressing the global public health crisis through CovidDeep, an AI-powered monitoring and screening solution to detect the different phases of SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19, currently in validation after a promising clinical trial.
In a recent study with San Matteo Hospital in Pavia, Italy, researchers demonstrated that CovidDeep's efficient AI neural networks can differentiate between healthy participants (tested SARS-CoV-2 negative), asymptomatic (tested SARS-CoV-2 positive that can stay home), or even symptomatic (SARS-CoV-2 positive that needs hospitalization), using only a small field of clinical biometric data obtained non-intrusively from off-the-shelf, wearable medical sensors. Following further validation, the solution could help in triaging people for targeted viral and antibody testing, getting them to self-quarantine sooner, get treatment faster, and, importantly, enable the world to get back to work and restart the economy.
CovidDeep can empower medical professionals and individuals by:
"Right now, our biggest question is, how can we return to an open society and a productive economy without risking the collapse of the healthcare system? The answer is through a scalable SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 screening system, which we knew we could bring to life with Rajant as our partner," says Adel Laoui, CEO and founder of NeuTiger. "This is an essential advancement in smart healthcare, but our work doesn't stop there. This partnership with Rajant also enables us to strategically address issues across cybersecurity, edge computing, and other IoT use cases across multiple verticals."
"When we think about an AI-powered future, a SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 screening solution is just the beginning. Our partnership with NeuTigers enables state-of-the-art AI applications in the healthcare, construction, and transportation industries, among others," says Robert Schena, CEO of Rajant. "We have a responsibility to apply our technology in ways that support the greater global good, and with NeuTigers, we're poised to tackle the immediate challenges of AI without losing sight of the big picture."
"CovidDeep does not require the presence of a nurse or physician during testing. It uses physiological signals extracted using commercially available devices and achieves high test accuracy. As a result, it provides a testing mechanism that is accurate, easily accessible to the public, and easy for individuals to use. Furthermore, this mechanism only requires a few minutes of data collection from an individual to perform an inference," says study co-author Professor Ignazio R. Marino MD, EVP Jefferson International Innovative Strategic Ventures, Thomas Jefferson University, and Jefferson Health. "Thus CovidDeep has the potential to impact how we screen for SARS-CoV-2, and subsequently triage the use of other diagnostic resources."
About the Validation Study
The validation study is especially critical to frontline healthcare workers. CovidDeep is based on voluntary participation, provides anonymity, does not use personal data nor geolocation information, and operates in full compliance with US-HIPAA and EU-GDPR regulations.
