AI for Diabetic Retinopathy AI for Good AI for Health

We are pleased to announce that Arun Shroff, Founder/CEO of Xtend.AI, has been appointed as the topic driver for the Ophthalmology group at the third meeting of the ITU/WHO Focus Group on AI for Health (FG-AI4H) in Lausanne, Switzerland. This pivotal role positions Arun at the forefront of spearheading efforts to establish benchmarking standards for evaluating AI applications in Ophthalmology, an area ripe for innovation and improvement.

The FG-AI4H is a collaborative endeavor between two esteemed UN agencies—the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The focus group’s inception traces back to ITU-T Study Group 16’s meeting in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in July 2018, underscoring a global commitment to harnessing AI’s potential in enhancing health diagnosis, triage, and treatment decisions.

Arun Shroff’s leadership in this group signifies a significant step forward in our mission to harness AI for social good, particularly in improving eye care and treatment outcomes worldwide. As the topic driver for the Ophthalmology topic group, Arun will lead the charge in creating a standardized framework for assessing the effectiveness and reliability of AI technologies in ophthalmology. This initiative is not just about technological advancement but also about ensuring these innovations are accessible, equitable, and capable of making a tangible impact on people’s lives.

The scope, objectives, and processes of the FG-AI4H are meticulously outlined in a commentary published in The Lancet and a comprehensive white paper. These documents, along with the records of all previous meetings, are accessible through the ITU collaboration site, providing valuable resources for anyone interested in the intersection of AI and healthcare.

Arun’s involvement with the FG-AI4H is a testament to Xtend.AI’s commitment to leading the way in AI-driven healthcare solutions. By setting benchmarks for AI applications in ophthalmology, we are paving the way for groundbreaking advancements that promise to enhance the quality of care for patients worldwide. This effort aligns with our broader goal of leveraging technology to address critical healthcare challenges and improve outcomes in communities around the globe.

Stay tuned for more updates on this pioneering work and other initiatives from Xtend.AI as we continue to drive innovation and positive change in healthcare through AI and machine learning technologies. Together, we are shaping a future where healthcare is more accessible, efficient, and effective for everyone.
