Tuberculosis Disease Diagnosis Using AI, Bio-sensor and Digital Technology

On Thursday 15th March 2018, we presented a workshop in Putrajaya, Malaysia to disseminate the results of our TB-Test project. The workshop was entitled Tuberculosis Disease Diagnosis Using AI, Bio-sensor and Digital Technology.

Approximately 30 people attended the workshop from different disciplines including doctors, local health professionals, researchers from Nanotechnology Malaysia, and chemical and computer sciences staff and students from our project partner Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM). They were welcomed to the workshop by Prof Alamgir Hossain from Anglia Ruskin University. Prof Nor Azah Yusof from Universiti Putra Malaysia presented the sensing capability which were applied on real sputum samples. Dr Antesar Shabut from Anglia Ruskin University then demonstrated the TB Test app, sharing the results of the mobile phone application with the workshop participants. In the afternoon Dr Ben Evans from the University of East Anglia led a SWOT analysis on the app with the participants. This enabled our team and their partners from UPM to collect any additional feedback.
