AI Scope is an open-source smart microscope that uses AI to diagnose diseases like malaria and tuberculosis without the need for trained medical staff. AI Scope can work autonomously to identify and quantify different parasites and bacteria, making it a lifesaving tool, especially for those living in isolated areas.

Impact

Three out of the top 10 deadliest diseases in low and middle-income areas could be easily cured if they were correctly, and quickly diagnosed, preventing millions of deaths every year. Microscopy is still the most important technique in diagnosing some of these diseases; though it is often labor intensive, relatively expensive, and can be subject to human error.
