Light AI is addressing the health challenges of today
Our technology uses throat imaging coupled with artificial intelligence to distinguish viral versus bacterial infections. Perhaps the most important distinction between bacteria and viruses is that antibiotic drugs usually kill bacteria, but they aren’t effective against viruses.

Symptoms may be similar for bacterial and viral infections, but it is important to distinguish as the treatments vary considerably and can lead to misuse of antibiotics. Antibiotic resistance is in the top 3 global concerns for maintaining human health. This is the first new approach to diagnosis of strep throat and infectious disease since the 1980s. The gold standard of care is a throat swab culture, which can take up to two days and leads to overuse of antibiotics…

Light AI works on-demand and produces results in (near) real-time.

Even if new medicines are developed, without behaviour change, antibiotic resistance will remain a major threat ❞

Chart - Daily Testing
The upside of testing in a post COVID-19 world
The new standard will be to screen everyone presenting with a sore throat to differentiate between bacterial and viral infections. In the United States alone this will account for over one million tests daily.
Light AI decodes infection within seconds
A person suspects or has been diagnosed with symptoms of a bacterial (such as Strep Throat) or viral infection (such as COVID-19)
For screening, live images are acquired on-demand through a smartphone or a Light AI’s device for medical settings.
The data is segmented into objects for evaluation, including only the tongue, uvula and tonsils, omitting the face.

The advanced AI immediately scans for key indicators and accurately identifies the presence of infection.

BACKED BY ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
Artificial Intelligence -Neural Networks
Thousands of images gathered from our healthcare partners are used in Machine Learning
Light AI’s Neural Engine uses advanced algorithms to identify key patterns in patient images to produce an effective probability score
  • Payors and providers will need to utilize data and analytics as their competitive advantage to succeed in this new environment
  • Our models have the potential to reduce the burden on clinicians and solve issues brought on by a growing baby boomer population
