Often, those who become seriously ill need luck in disguise: only if the diagnosis is made in time can the disease be treated successfully. Many seriously ill people are denied this – due to the complexity of many diseases.
The scientist and Scailyte COO Dr. Corinne Solier is working with her company on an AI-based technology that enables precise and rapid detection of diseases. In the Cat!apult podcast, she explains how it works and reveals her confidence about improving disease diagnostics by means of technology.
SAID & NOTED
The diagnostic of some diseases can take up to 5 to 10 years – that’s a big burden, not only in terms of physical pain, but also regarding the uncertainty of not knowing what’s wrong.
With our Scaivision platform, we are not looking for something with a predefined lens. We are allowing the platform to discover for us and find what needs to be found.
In a sense, Scaivision plays the role of a magnet finding the needle in the haystack.
Experts are still needed: to interprete the data.
Ultimately, our applications will help bring the right medicine to the right patient at the right time.
