CMU led an assembly with TechEdge Solutions, Inc. and Microsoft Inc. to discuss the “DeepTek Genki: A Frontline Tool for Fighting COVID-19” project at Tessie Aquino Oreta Hall earlier today.
The Deeptek Genki Medical Imaging Solution, a radiology Artificial Intelligence-powered solution for Public Health Screening developed by TechEdge Solutions, Inc. was demonstrated as an advanced pandemic response.
This offers the benefits of AI to lessen the transmission rates of the virus, while the desired herd immunity is taking so long to be achieved due to the scarcity of vaccines. In addition, it can also supplement existing hospital-based testing devices being used in the National Capital Region through the unique deployability of its AI-assisted testing device.
Microsoft Inc. also has forged a partnership with the institution to be a Microsoft incubator school and a testing center.
The productive assembly was spearheaded by the University President Hon. Antolin A. Oreta III, Coun. Jose Lorenzo Oreta. Present in the demonstration were Engr. Sheila Ibay-Villanueva, Vice President for Institutional Development and External Affairs and Concurrent University Secretary, Prof. Melissa Grace Sison-Oreta, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Michael Darwin D.
