AI Tech is a company that created a technology to help doctors determine rare genetic disorders in children. This technology uses facial analysis, in order to analyze childrens' faces. The technology known as DeepGestalt, was created by Israeli and American computer scientists in hopes to make different genetic syndromes more easily identifiable. According to the World Health Organization, it can take many years to identify a genetic disorder. This is why DeepGestalt uses one’s facial features to more easily diagnose patients. DeepGestalt is also efficient, as doctors will be able to receive the results much faster. In turn, faster results lead to earlier treatments and a better quality of life for patients.
DeepGestalt will not replace the efforts of clinicians; rather, it will be helpful for clinicians to reference this tool when coming to a consensus about a child’s specific genetic disorder. Face2Gene is a helpful phenotyping platform, as it outputs potential syndromes based on the different images that one inputs. From this step, clinicians can use their knowledge in order to diagnose their patients with the correct syndromes.
According to Viva Sarah Press, “DeepGestalt provided the correct answer 91 percent of the time.”
Therefore, this technology is highly reliable and will improve clinicians’ abilities to diagnose their patients with the correct genetic disorders.
Moreover, the data inputted into this technology is safe and secure, as only clinicians have access to the entries. Therefore, patients do not have to worry about the leaking of their information.
With all of these benefits in mind, DeepGestalt makes information about genetic disorders more accessible and overall, helps to create patient satisfaction.
