Behold.ai trains AI to detect COVID-19 on x-ray

By AuntMinnieEurope.com staff writers

March 23, 2020 -- U.K. artificial intelligence (AI) software developer Behold.ai has trained its red dot AI algorithm to flag as abnormal the chest x-rays of individuals with COVID-19.

The red dot algorithm can detect abnormal chest x-rays almost instantly, which could potentially increase the rate at which clinicians diagnose COVID-19, Behold.ai said. The algorithm was able to identify 85% of x-rays as abnormal when applied to the images of 28 individuals with COVID-19.

Behold.ai received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for red dot earlier in March 2020.
