Addressing 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.

Our technology is the first new approach to diagnosis of strep throat 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.

Decoding viral versus bacterial infections in four seconds

A person suspects or has been diagnosed with symptoms of a bacterial (such as Strep Throat) or viral infection (such as COVID-19)

An imaging device is used for screening — this can be a smartphone or a Light AI’s device for medical settings.

A close-up image is captured of the throat, including only the tongue, uvula and tonsils, omitting the face.

Within seconds, the advanced AI scans for key indicators and accurately differentiates a viral or bacterial infection or no infection.

CUSTOM SOLUTIONS FOR MEDICAL SETTINGS

Light AI has developed a handheld, durable point of care throat image screening imaging device for professional use as well as a complementary smartphone solution for individual use.

The technology is being developed for both professional use and home-care, which are complementary and well-suited for telemedicine, providing convenience and confidence and prevents unnecessary doctor visits.

AI driven solutions reduce the burdens on health care infrastructures and solve for pandemic scale health challenges

BOOST PREPAREDNESS, ACT PREVENTATIVELY

Wide range diagnostic screening powered by Artificial Intelligence allows time to plan the correct course of action and therapy, utilizing critical resources efficiently and building capacity where needed.​

INCREASE SPEED, LOWER COST

Exploiting Artificial Intelligence to increase the speed of infectious disease screening, reduces the need for human resources, equipment, and burdensome processes; critical for success in staying ahead of the curve.​​

TREAT WITH ACCURACY

Proactive screening and diagnosis prevents disease spread and mistreatment. Early and accurate diagnosis and effective treatment are key.​

GLOBAL OUTREACH

Exploiting Artificial Intelligence to increase the speed of infectious disease screening, reduces the need for human resources, equipment, and burdensome processes; critical for success in staying ahead of the curve.

USE DATA AND TECH BUT RESPECT PRIVACY

Technology can be executed while protecting privacy without sacrificing the information required for improved safety, health and wellness.

LEVERAGE EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURES AND TECH

We are poised to enable mass screening by using ubiquitous smart devices to provide real-time point of care technology to rule in or out infectious diseases.​
