      TRACK AI

      DIAGNOSING EARLY SIGNS OF VISUAL IMPAIRMENT IN CHILDREN

      At Huawei, we believe technology should be open and available to all. Regardless of who we are, or where we come from. To make all our lives better.

      That’s why we’re utilising AI technology with the objective of improving the lives of the 19 million children around the world estimated by the World Health Organisation to be suffering with visual impairment. Most of these children go undiagnosed for a long time. This can result in more serious consequences with their vision, general development, educational and social opportunities.

      But with timely intervention, 70 - 80% of problems are preventable or curable. Early detection, however, is complex. It requires a highly-trained paediatric ophthalmologist, and even then, it can be difficult to examine babies and children who can’t clearly communicate.

      Developed in collaboration with DIVE Medical, Track AI aims to become an easy-to-use, portable and affordable solution. A device helping non-trained professionals identify visual disorders, in children as young as infants. Our hope for Track AI is to achieve a world without visually-impaired children.

      HOW IT WORKS

      DIVE’s innovative software monitors and tracks the gaze of each eye while the patient is looking at stimuli designed to test different aspects of visual function.

      The data collected from the patients’ gaze pattern is then processed on the HUAWEI P30 smartphone using the HUAWEI HiAI algorithm to identify potential indicators of visual impairment.

      A technician can use the HUAWEI P30 device as an interface to analyse live data and make an assessment whether a child has a visual impairment and what actions can be taken to correct the child’s eye sight.

       

      Developing a system based on machine learning AI requires gathering data from thousands of children. During this unique collaboration, we’re working with 18 ophthalmologists from 5 different countries across 3 continents to collect data. As this database grows, our AI systems will become smarter and more effective. Helping more children receive more accurate care.

      BUILDING A HEALTHIER FUTURE

      Track AI is a device that is easy to use, portable, and affordable. It is not a replacement for a professional medical diagnosis, but rather a helpful tool for faster assessment. It can identify children with damaged eyesight, and in doing so, improve the health and quality-of-life of children all over the world. 

      "For the past few years, we have been committed to developing a tool that will assess visual function in young children and to identify those with visual impairments. With Huawei supporting and powering DIVE through AI we are now able to work towards this goal. Our goal is to implement this technology globally and with our multi-ethnic approach we can cater to every type of visual impairment.”
