BENGALURU: The DRDO Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, with the assist of 5C Network and HCG Academics, has developed ‘ATMAN AI’, an Artificial Intelligence algorithm that may detect the presence of Covid-19 an infection in chest X-rays in seconds. The ATMAN AI is an Artificial Intelligence instrument for chest X-ray screening as triaging instrument in Covid-19 analysis which is a technique for speedy identification and evaluation of lung involvement.
This will probably be utilised by 5C Network, India’s largest digital community of radiologists, with assist o f HCG Academics throughout India. The ATMAN AI, generally is a very great tool particularly in smaller cities owing to lack of quick access to CT scans.
Dr U Ok Singh, Director, CAIR, DRDO, stated, “Given the limited testing facilities for coronavirus, there is a rush to develop AI tools for quick analysis using X-rays. The tool will help in automatically detecting radiological findings indicative of Covid-19 in seconds, enabling physicians and radiologists to more effectively triage the cases, especially in an emergency environment.”
