Résumé :

The SUOG assistant develops the next-generation of intelligent assistant for ultrasound support during pregnancy and provides the ultrasound operator, in real time and during the scan, with relevant information when he faces unusual features. The SUOG assistant provides iterative intelligent guidance and display relevant expert-validated ultrasound images to enforce the provided guidance.

The SUOG assistant is the first intelligent assistant of its kind. It is unique by design: it relies on a composite AI (semantic reasoning and image recognition) and its decision processes remain human-readable (no black-box effect, thanks to the use of ontologies). SUOG integrates a knowledge base designed by international OB/GYN and fetal medicine experts.

At the end of the project, in 2022, the fully functional and clinically validated SUOG assistant will be developed. This project is funded for 3 years by the EIT-Health Innovation program, selected as part of the BP2020.
