Artificial Intelligence in Medical Epidemiology (AIME)

Ambassador: Rainier Mallol , Dominican Republic

Rainier Mallol started Artificial Intelligence in Medical Epidemiology (AIME) after seeing the first hand effects of dengue and other diseases in his native Dominican Republic. AIME has the goal of applying artificial intelligence and mathematical algorithms to predict disease outbreaks. By taking into account a variety of physical and environmental factors, the programme has been able to accurately predict dengue outbreaks within 400 metres and up to three months in advance, with 88.7% accuracy. So far the technology has been deployed in Rio de Janeiro, Singapore, and two different states in Malaysia, with the potential to reach over 13 million people worldwide
