NHS Digital and NHS England together have devised a free NHS app to book GP appointments in a swifter and user-friendly way. This novel NHS app will be launched in December 2018, allowing patients to access their health records in a safe and secure manner.
This app uses a smartphone camera, computer vision algorithms and machine learning tools to assess bilirubin levels in the white part of the eye named sclera since jaundice is considered as one of the earliest symptoms of pancreatic cancer. The eyes and the skin become yellow colored due to the accumulation of bilirubin in the blood caused by jaundice.
This Cardiogram work was based on Framingham Heart Study 2015, where the resting and variable heart rate significantly predicted hypertension and diabetes. This prototype helped the cardiogram research team to use the Apple Watch’s heart rate sensor for accurate diabetes predictions.
Scientists from the University of Texas have developed a way to sense dangerous chemicals, a basic model consisting of a smartphone and a box made from Lego bricks, which could help scientists to identify deadly and difficult-to-detect nerve agents such as sarin and VX. The new approach combines a chemical sensor with photography to notice and recognize different nerve agents.
A research team from the University of California, Los Angeles, United States has revealed that deep learning (a form of AI) can distinctively increase microscopic resolutions in photos taken via smartphones.
This keychain-sized portable allergen detector is called an Integrated Exogenous Antigen Testing System (IEAT). By placing a drop or a bit of food on a single use slide namely an ‘antigen extraction device’, it can detect the allergen and its quantity within 10 minutes by performing necessary chemical deconstruction.
AutoDietary has got a microphone on the back to record the food chewing sound. This information will be sent to a connected smartphone via Bluetooth. The sound will then be uploaded to the cloud database, where it would be compared with existing chewing data for varied foods.
