Using AI, Microsoft hopes to treat blindness

Microsoft India today has launched Microsoft Intelligent Network for Eyecare (MINE) in collaboration with L V Prasad Eye Institute. MINE is a global network of research and academic institutions which have come together to use artificial intelligence to help eliminate avoidable blindness and also to deliver eyecare services worldwide.

Along with L V Prasad Eye Institute, Microsoft has partnered with Bascom Palmer - University of Miami, Flaum Eye Institute - University of Rochester, Federal University of Sao Paulo and Brien Holden Vision Institute.

All the organisations will create a collective database of patients across the world. The data will then help create and improve a machine learning predictive models of vision impairment and eye disease.

The data collected by these organisations will include the rate of change of myopia in children, conditions that impact children's eyesight, predictive outcomes of refractive surgery, optimal surgery parameters as well as ways to personalize a surgery and maximize its probability of success.

To study this data, Microsoft will use Cortana Intelligence Suite for advanced analytics and to build artificial intelligence models on eyecare.
