AI BASED COVID-19 TESTING KIT DESIGNED BY ARFICUS

Corona Virus outbreak a global pandemic on March 11th, as the outbreak has now spread to 183+ countries. Total infections outside of China are accelerating, with the global infection toll surpassing 160518 as of April 19. Spread of coronavirus at the community level needs to be stopped.

The first and foremost thing required to fight from this disease is to Diagnose the disease at an early stage , as early we can diagnose the disease ,we can start the quarantine isolation and medication of the affected patient.

Currently it takes on an average 2–4 hours to analyze the samples of the patient and get the results. Also many quarantine centers aren’t fully equipped with the testing kits as still the kits are under production and definitely will soon be available at a larger scale.

Techies, IT solutions experts across the globe are putting their tireless efforts to curb this global pandemic.

Many companies have joined hands to control the enormous increase in the death toll.

With companies are putting their humongous efforts in making vaccines, sanitisers , face masks it becomes quite inevitable to test people at a larger scale.

A rigorous testing would help to know the real affect of the disease and to treat the patients at a faster pace.

To support this an Indian startup “ARFICUS” has come up with an innovative and breakthrough solution to test people for COVID-19 in only 53 seconds.

They have made this breakthrough concept which is purely based on ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE .


COVTREAT – COVID-19 KIT DESIGNED BY ARFICUS



The system designed by team ARFICUS is named as “COVTREAT”. The system thus developed has been trained on 1678 COVID-19 positive patients data. Not only this the big achievement of Team ARFICUS is that their “COVTREAT” solution has 99.56% of accuracy.

COVTREAT solution has been designed on NEURAL NETWORK algorithms and the system can be used as a software patch in the existing X-RAY/ CT- SCAN machines or can be used as a standalone system too.

Due to large numbers of lesions in lungs and rapid changes, multiple rechecks and image reviews are required in a short period of time, significantly increasing the workloads of imaging doctors. What’s worse, imaging doctors who can accurately diagnose and quantitatively analyze COVID-19 are insufficient in number, so the diagnosis efficiency cannot be greatly improved.
