In a recent study published in Nature Medicine, researchers conducted a prospective, multicenter, observational study between 14 January 2020 and 30 January 2022 in China.
They prospectively recorded videos of 3,652 Chinese children aged 48 months and under to develop the Apollo Infant Sight (AIS) system. They validated this system twice in clinical and also in at-home settings.
AIS, a smartphone-based mobile health (mHealth) system, captured image frames of the children gazing at cartoon-like videos to identify visual impairments. It precisely distinguished 16 ophthalmic disorders in children by analyzing their facial features, gazing behavior, and ocular movements under visual stimuli using deep learning (DL) models with robust quality control design against test noises.
