Microsoft on Monday has launched a new application Microsoft Intelligent Network for Eye Care simply termed as MINE, based on machine learning and AF for improving the efficient of Eye Care globally. Meanwhile, Microsoft has signed a deal with LV Prasad Eye Institute in Hyderabad to develop the application which is for delivering a better eye care.
Microsoft Intelligent network for Eye Care (MINE) is an ongoing project under Microsoft’s R&D division together with similar projects for another kind of hospitals amongst other efforts. The announcement of a new launch on Monday, Microsoft is taking MINE outside the experimental Programme. It was running in India to bring the number of global partners such as the Bascom Palmer – University of Miami, Flaum Eye Institute – University of Rochester (USA), Federal University of Sao Paulo (Brazil), and Brien Holden Vision Institute (Australia).
Microsoft Managing Director, Microsoft India (R&D), Anil Bhansali said, “By using our skills and innovative work in the machine learning field over the years, Microsoft has helped to boost digital transformation in several crucial sectors in India, including education and agriculture. MINE is also a global association to motivate public good.”
The idea behind MINE is very simple. The specialist organizations will provide a large amount of data, and we can create databases through the data that can be perceptively examined through Artificial Intelligence modules developed around eye care, in order to classify main areas where involvement can be applied to real effect. MINE can come up with plans on how to more effectually improve the success rates people in the field see.
Speaking about the new project, Founder-Chair LV Prasad Eye Institute, Dr. GN Rao says, “At LV Prasad Eye Institute, we have been using Microsoft Cobalt Machine Learning and power commercial visions to boost clinical intrusions and improve patient outcomes. We are happy to associate with Microsoft and joining forces with global organizations to develop the field of ophthalmology in India and across the globe. We are confident that this will tile way for others to influence technology to address several other critical eye diseases.”Microsoft’s machine learning tools has been entirely assessable, said Dr. Rao.
Microsoft India Director, Bhansali said, “The expansion of MINE will now not only allow the hospitals and research organization to benefit, but also helping to generate a significant amount of data. LVPEI has an epoch of data which we have used it along with Azure and Cortana machine learning to provide pointing insights.
