Tencent and Zhong Nanshan team jointly build a big data and artificial intelligence laboratory to fight the epidemic
On the 27th, Academician Zhong Nanshan's team and Tencent announced a cooperation to jointly set up a big data and artificial intelligence joint laboratory, which will use big data and artificial intelligence to tackle screening, prevention and control of epidemics, respiratory diseases and chest diseases.
According to reports, the laboratory relies on the National Respiratory Diseases Clinical Medical Research Center, the State Key Laboratory of Respiratory Diseases, and the Guangzhou Institute of Respiratory Health, led by Academician Zhong Nanshan's team. Internet medical service capabilities, as well as big data and artificial intelligence technologies. Academician Zhong Nanshan himself served as the laboratory director.
Using Internet technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence, the teams from both sides will conduct in-depth scientific cooperation around epidemiological screening, artificial intelligence medical imaging, and epidemic forecasting and early warning. Including the use of Internet service platforms such as "Tencent Health" to continuously screen high-risk populations and provide medical guidance; research artificial intelligence medical image interpretation and screening technologies; and target multiple epidemics such as new coronary pneumonia. Forecasting and early warning system.
In response to epidemic diseases such as new coronary pneumonia, influenza, hand, foot and mouth, and respiratory diseases, the two sides will build a screening mechanism that connects online and offline: through Internet service platforms such as the "Tencent Health" applet, screening high-risk populations and giving medical guidance, Cooperate with offline hotspots, community-level health services and medical institutions to assist in the screening, prediction and prevention of epidemics.
In addition, artificial intelligence-assisted reading will also play a role in the screening of whole lung and chest diseases such as new coronary pneumonia, common pneumonia, and lung cancer. The two parties will combine X-ray, CT imaging and other inspection reports to further study artificial intelligence's interpretation and screening of lung diseases. At present, artificial intelligence CT equipment equipped with “Tencent foraging” AI medical imaging and Tencent cloud technology have been deployed in many hospitals in Hubei. The AI algorithm can help doctors identify new coronary pneumonia in only a few seconds, which will greatly ease local CT screening. Insufficient pressure.
How to prevent and control future epidemic situations in the next step? The two sides will also use artificial intelligence to assist clinical decision-making technology, continue to carry out multi-center clinical research across the country, establish a nationwide disease reporting and prediction and early warning system, and achieve assisted clinical Decision-making of treatment plan, follow-up, evaluation of efficacy and prognosis.
