Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to forecast the contribution of maternal health investments to maternal health outcomes.
To address this challenge, MUHAS has established a research and development laboratory for Emerging Technologies for Healthcare (mETH) in Tanzania. The laboratory’s biomedical engineering unit is developing an AI algorithm using deep learning, specifically the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), for detecting TB on chest X-rays.
The project’s principal investigator is Dr. Deogratias Mzurikwao, a lecturer at MUHAS and the head of the mETH laboratory. He has a Ph.D. in the application of AI in healthcare and has published several machine learning papers in peer-reviewed journals.
