Deep learning goes to Africa, helps some kids: Last week I told you about Bay Labs and some collaborators taking technology to Africa to help identify symptoms of Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) in Kenyan school children. The Bay Labs software uses deep learning to analyze data derived from an ultrasound to take a good educated guess as to whether it’s seeing something consistent with RHD. During the trip, medical professionals scanned 1200 children in four days and were able to spot 48 children with RHD or congenital heart disease.
