Purpose and goal

This project aims at strengthening the competence in the field of AI at Oncoalgorithms. This is needed because Oncoalgorithms together with researchers at Karolinska Institute plan to commercialize findings where AI is applied in prostate cancer diagnostics.

Expected results and effects

The effect of the project is more efficient technology transfer in a regulatory compliant manner. The result is a better product launched sooner.

Planned approach and implementation

The project focuses on quality control of input data. This is a manual step today and has to be automated. The problem as such is similar to the available method. i.e. determine if an image contains certain features using artificial intelligence. We will evaluate if images with flaws can be automatically discarded. A simple example is to remove images that are out of focus. Work is conducted at Oncoalgorithms under the supervision of KI.
