Predicting heart diseases using AI
Why AI for Health?
Health is a field where AI is bringing considerable progress and direct impact on people's life expectancy and quality of life. In particular, AI can help to diagnose or predict diseases before they happen, opening the door to preventive treatments and personalized medicine.
Kantify's breakthrough research on Atrial Fibrillation
Whether we know it or not, we all know someone who is affected by Atrial Fibrillation (also known as AF or AFib). With 33M patients estimated in europe and north america, Atrial Fibrillation is a growing disase, with a high health and society impact : blood clots, kidney problems, heart failure, kidney failure dementia.
In collaboration with a renowned cardiologist and the AI laboratory of the Université Libre de Bruxelles, Kantify has discovered a breakthrough algorithm to diagnose and predict Atrial Fibrillation. The Kantify AI based model that can both detect and predict Atrial Fibrillation based on ECG (Electrocardiogram) data.
This model has not only a higher AUC (Area Under the Curve) than existing models in terms of Atrial Fibrillation diagnosis, but it can also predict when Atrial Fibrillation can happen. This prediction capability is what makes Kantify’s discovery unique. Therefore, this breakthrough has been accepted by international scientific journals and currently being published.
