As a global product engineering and lifecycle services company we have been working on making advancements in the Healthcare domain, by providing innovative solutions to our clients. One of our robust AI-powered solution enables healthcare professionals to accelerate the screening of COVID-19 patients with pneumonia symptoms. Using advanced deep learning models, the AI-powered diagnostic solution can sort and identify chest X-rays of patients with COVID-19.
With an accuracy of more than 95%, the solution can be deployed on the cloud as a service, making it easily accessible on edge for healthcare professionals and end-users. The solution is backed by Microsoft Azure Machine Learning, which helps accelerate the development and deployment on machine learning models in a highly secure and trusted fashion.
The Medical Devices engineering team at QuEST developed this technology demonstrator using chest X-rays of healthy individuals, patients with symptoms of pneumonia and COVID-19. These X-rays were used to train and build a deep neural network model that could clearly identify the radiological patterns of pneumonia related to COVID-19 and highlight the suspicious ones, thus leading to a faster screening of the disease.
Over the last ten years, under QuEST Global CSR (#SmileEngineering), volunteers from QuEST have conducted workshops, and upgraded physics lab, chemistry lab, library, sports room in schools. With the help of #EWB (Engineers Without Borders) a well-equipped computer lab has been setup in a local School in Bengaluru. Each year, we award cash prizes to the toppers in grade 8t, 9 & 10 and have been supporting graduating students to pursue engineering degrees with annual scholarships.
My Kartavya (my duty), is a unique curated volunteering program by NASSCOM Foundation, that connects the Industry bodies to Non-profit organisations to create a better social impact. This gives our volunteers a plethora of opportunities to choose from
At QuEST, we encourage employees to dedicate their free time for a noble cause. Through My Kartavya and other such initiatives, we help them find a complete gamut of volunteering activities, such as
