Poster 11: Ayesha Khan – Developing an AI Warning System for Infectious Respiratory Disease Outbreaks

Faculty mentor: Tolga Tasdizen

COVID-19 presents itself in regions of the lungs which are filled with fluid instead of air. This is a phenomenon seen in other respiratory diseases, but COVID-19 is unique in that it is present in these regions of the lungs with no known specific pattern or distribution. The aim of this project is to create an AI system that recognizes abnormalities in chest x-rays and present a warning when similar cases are recognized. This allows the opportunity to contain the spread in a population.
