A Dubai-based Indian girl developed an AI-based app named ‘Ogler EyeScan’ to detect eye diseases at the age of 11.
As per the Indian media, Leena Rafeeq from Kerala, India studied different subjects including computer vision, algorithms and others to create the app. She started working on the app for the last one year. The application is capable of detecting various eye diseases via scanning.
Leena said that her app can detect Arcus, Pterygium, Melanoma and Cataracts. The keyboard warriors praised the efforts of Leena.
Leena shared the news with a caption, “Exciting news! I am thrilled to announce the submission of my new Artificially Intelligent mobile app, named Ogler EyeScan. I created this Ai App at the age of 10. Ogler is capable of detecting various eye diseases and conditions through a unique scanning process with your iPhone. Using advanced computer vision, and machine learning algorithms, Ogler can analyze various parameters such as light and color intensity, distance, and look-up points to locate the eyes within the frame range. It also identifies any light burst issues and if the eyes are positioned exactly inside the scanner frame”.
“Once the scan quality is assured, the app utilizes trained models to diagnose potential eye diseases or conditions such as Arcus, Melanoma, Pterygium, and Cataract. This App was developed natively with SwiftUI without any third-party libraries or packages, and it took me six months of research and development to bring this innovative app to life,” reads the caption.
