. A boy from Lucknow, Eshaan Vasanthkumar (17 years old) developed an AI-based application “Rosini” to detect cataracts at an early stage. .
This app was introduced on Saturday during the free vision test camp organized by the Technical Support Unit and Research Department of Uttar Pradesh.
A 12th grader from Study Hall School, Ehsaan, in collaboration with the National Health Delegation and the Indian Health Action Fund, worked for a year to create this app.
“It is user-friendly and accessible to frontline and public health workers who will assist rural communities in their initial cataract screening. Its goal is to eliminate blindness and vision problems caused by untreated cataracts. Initially, the app will be used in Varanasi, Fatehpur, and Hapur,” he said.
Ehsaan states that there is currently no such app in India.
“My maternal grandparents and paternal grandparents were diagnosed with cataracts, which inspired me to work in this field,” he says.
UPTSU Data Scientist Satya Swarup said: “Through this app, we want to revolutionize cataract screening in rural India. »
The camp started with a free app demo and movie screening for participants.
