Two artificial intelligence (AI) research projects of FPT Software, including the detections of Pneumothorax and Kidney and Tumor Dice, received silver medals at Pneumothorax Challenge.

FPT Software’s AI-powered application in detecting Kidney and Tumor Dice was the only Vietnamese project to reach the final at KiTS19 Grand challenge. In FPT Software’s algorithm, the precision of results in detecting kidney and tumor diseases reaches 73%, kidney is 93.9% and cancer is 56.6%.

Representative of FPT Software shared that the development team in the project has conducted various in-depth studies on medical problems; coordinated with some local and foreign doctors and hospitals and adopted AI applications to diagnose diseases. At the same time, the team also applied its algorithm on the large data set of The Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) and The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) during the competition.

The representative of FPT Software also said that both projects are built on Residual Capsule, an AI algorithm that is researched, invented and developed by FPT Software. FPT Software is filing an international patent application for this algorithm.

“FPT Software promotes investment in such cutting-edge technologies as IoT, AI and Bigdata to transform itself into a tech company moving up the software value chain. Being recognized at international competitions is a great impetus for its technology and human resource development. We hope the two results of the researches will be added to the hospital and healthcare system in Vietnam and across the globe”, said the representative of FPT Software.

FPT Software has been investing resources to develop state-of-the-art technology.

Pneumothorax Challenge is organized by The Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) and The American College of Rheumatology (ACR), with 1,475 team.

Meanwhile, KiTS19 Grand challenge is organized by the University of Minnesota (USA) and University of Melbourne (Australia), with 847 teams.
