We imagine a world where no one dies from a bite of mosquito. In some areas of the world, mosquitoes are more than a nuisance, causing more than 4 millions deaths annually. To help fight against Malaria, we are building a weapon/tool that allows them to detect malaria quicker and accurately.
What it does
Our tool will give the prediction/probability for whether a patient is infected with malaria or not, given the input images from the patient's blood samples in browser.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
There are many challenges we ran into. We were using some technologies that we had never used before. We worked non-stop to get everything hooked up within 24 hours.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Trained a powerful machine learning model, utilizing open source data from U.S National Library of Medicine. Learned new technologies and make them worked properly.
What we learned
We learned a mindset that it is possible to make your dream project come true within 24 hours if you have a good teamwork.
What's next for project_m
