New app to help detect symptoms of sick children using facial recognition

post-image
This app by PainChek is designed to help with identifying the health problems in infants and children who are unable to communicate their medical symptoms and pain to health professionals. With the use of facial recognition technology, the app is able to detect and analyse any pain and signals with just the slightest change of facial expression by the child. This would be great help for medical staff and hospitals who have difficulty identifying specific and accurate problems which will reduce the risk of misdiagnosis. https://neweconomy.media/2019/08/05/app-to-reveal-unspoken-pain-in-kids/
