What do we do?

PidPort: a software for pathological image diagnosis using deep learning

Pathologists are doctors who check tissue sample of patients with a microscope and identify their condition. Currently, there are very few pathologists around and the world is facing a shortage of diagnosis experts for this job. Medmain is developing an AI that is capable of producing accurate and precise diagnosis reports in a minute. We are currently building the alpha version, and have already signed contracts with several large hospitals in Japan. The schedule is to release the final version by late 2019.
