Tab to Drone to AI – Impacting eye care
The gift of vision is probably the most critical of the five senses of humans, and only those who have lost and regained it back can express the importance of vision. Globally 285 million people are visually impaired of which 55 million are in India and more than 70% are from rural India, many of who do not have access to eye care facilities. The ratio of ophthalmologist being 1 for nearly 90,000 people in India, with a lesser number being specialized in advance treatment methods, fuels the necessity to develop and deploy technology to offer help to a larger cross section of society. Equally challenging is the development of technology solutions that provide faster, scalable and quality eye care to prevent needless blindness. Solutions using AI and ML concepts have just started showing results.
This talk will showcase the efforts of a Not for Profit eye institute to develop solutions and its contribution in improving the eye care systems, and the impact on needy communities in rural India.
