Using Artificial Intelligence Based Application to Support Leprosy Ulcer Care and Treatment by Community Health Workers

PI: Dr Onaedo Ilozumba. Co-Is: Sopna Choudhury, Professor Iain Styles, Dr Alexander Zhigalov.

This project will explore the possible use of computer learning to move healthcare closer to the people in the remote communities. First, we will learn from over 3,000 pictures of ulcers that have been taken in India, Nepal and Nigeria. We hope to teach a computer to be able to analyse an ulcer from a picture taken on a mobile phone. Next, we will develop a mobile application, which will give community health workers tailored advice to provide care in remote areas where people affected by leprosy live.
