AI-driven mobile health algorithm uses phone camera to detect blood vessel oxygen levels

You may already use your smartphone for remote medical appointments. Why not use some of the onboard sensors to gather medical data? That’s the idea behind AI-driven technology developed at Purdue University that could use a smartphone camera to detect and diagnose medical conditions like anemia faster and more accurately than highly specialized medical equipment being developed for the task.

Karaoke and wearable health devices: Weldon School students hit a high note exploring the future of wearable sensors in new course

Just a decade ago, it might not have been predicted that nearly 45% of Americans would use wearable heath devices with the ability to measure various types of physiological and environmental data. Apple alone sells over 40 million Apple Watches per year, which can track your heart rate, mobility and cardio fitness, blood oxygen level, and even detect falls. These types of devices are being used more each day in medical research to collect large amounts of data on patients’ health and behaviors, which can be used to improve disease management and treatment.
