Revolutionizing Disease Detection

The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) has introduced a groundbreaking AI-powered wearable device that can detect diseases up to six days before the onset of illness. The Department of Defense (DOD) is leveraging commercial wearables and an advanced artificial intelligence algorithm to provide early alerts to potential infections, allowing for timely intervention and prevention of spreading diseases. This innovative technology utilizes a predictive AI algorithm that is device agnostic and is trained using COVID-19 case hospital-acquired data. This groundbreaking algorithm can be used with any commercial-grade wearable, from Garmin to Oura rings. The algorithm has even predicted infections up to six days prior to onset, to include asymptomatic cases. The DOD plans to expand the technology’s application beyond COVID-19 and demonstrates its commitment to safeguarding service members’ well-being by staying ahead of infectious diseases.
