AI Based Abnormality Detection in Medical images(former core product of Behold.ai)

Using Convolutional Neural Networks and classified medical image data sets, we had a cloud-deployed technology that could classify medical images the same way that Facebook can classify faces of it’s users. I’m particularly interested in solutions using cell phones for developing markets for ophthalmology, dermatology, and wound care. If you’re interested in learning more about this project, please contact me.
