In the aftermath of the World Health Organization’s designation of the novel coronavirus as a pandemic, several measures have been put in place by various Governments to minimise the spread of the infection. But still, COVID-19 continues to spread rapidly across the world snatching away the lives of many.
Hence, in a bid to help the Central and the State Governments and also the people, a team of students and faculty from Rajalakshmi Group of Institutions, has developed a breakthrough software to detect COVID-19.
The AI (Artificial Intelligence) tool is based on neural network to detect COVID-19, CAP (Community-Acquired Pneumonia) and normal condition from chest X-Ray images. A whopping number of 14148 images were used in the training process and the tool has testing accuracy of 95.4 percent.
The highlights of the tool are:
* No installation required. It is a simple website which can be accessed from anywhere.
* As simple as uploading a photo on social media.
* The result will come within a second of uploading.

Mr. Ashwin Ramesh III Year CSE ( student )
are the members of the team that developed the unique software. All the above are part of Centre of Medical Imaging of Rajalakshmi Group of Institutions.
Dr Haree S Meganathan from the management of Rajalakshmi Institutions said, “It is a matter of immense pride that our students and staff have developed this AI based platform to detect COVID-19 cases. Our team has spent sleepless nights working on and testing this software in such short notice.”
