iFLYTEK will organize a series of AI challenges as part of the 2022 Global Developer Festival to enhance medical services by encouraging AI innovation and creation.
iFLYTEK has utilized its advanced AI technologies to enhance the healthcare industry. In 2017, iFLYTEK’s Smart Medical Assistant passed the National Qualification Examination for Medical Practitioners with a score in the 96th percentile. The Smart Medical Assistant has since been used in 104 counties and districts across Anhui Province alone and has a presence in 30 provinces. The smart solution has assisted in roughly 400 million diagnoses and with an estimated accuracy of 90 percent.
As a leader in the application of AI solutions in the healthcare industry, iFLYTEK will host a competition during the 2022 Global Developer Festival for developers to create innovative tools addressing critical needs including COVID-19 Acoustic Diagnosis, Segmentation of Cerebrovascular Structures in Magnetic Resonance Images, Neuroimaging Analysis, and Disease Prediction. The challenge is designed to promote the application of cutting-edge AI technologies to critical public health needs.
The conference brings together talented developers with a range of expertise that can further improve the effectiveness of AI within healthcare.
One participant, Dr. Shi Jun from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), leads a research team that is developing a series of algorithms and diagnostic software for use in cancer radiotherapy, pathological diagnosis, cardiac modeling, and quantitative analysis.
Dr. Shi is no stranger to competition. During the 2020 competition he won the Brain PET Image and Disease Prediction Challenge, and in 2021 he led his team to 5 gold medals, 6 silver medals, and 5 bronze medals in Smart Healthcare and 7 other tracks.
