The Wu Wenjun Science and Technology Award Ceremony was held, and Airdoc was awarded the highest honor of artificial intelligence in China

On November 29, 2019, the awarding ceremony of the 9th Wu Wenjun Artificial Intelligence Science and Technology Award was held at the Suzhou Radio and Television Studio.
In order to comprehensively implement the innovation driven development strategy and implement the national “New Generation Artificial Intelligence Development Plan”, the conference selected the 2019 Wu Wenjun Artificial Intelligence Science and Technology Award, and Airdoc, which promoted the large-scale implementation of artificial intelligence in the health field, won the Wu Wenjun Artificial Intelligence Science Progress Award.
Airdoc Wins Wu Wenjun Award
Worldwide industry landing, Airdoc wins recognition
With the change of life and work patterns in modern society, chronic diseases have become the biggest health threat to the people. More and more people are suffering from chronic diseases. For example, there are 116 million patients with diabetes and more than 300 million patients with hypertension in China. Chronic diseases often have a hidden onset, but continue to progress, with many serious complications occurring in the mid to late stages. Currently, the mortality rate of chronic diseases in China has exceeded 85% of the total population mortality rate. Therefore, the most important thing for chronic diseases is to detect and intervene early to slow them down. Through retinal artificial intelligence technology, Airdoc products can identify early risks across the entire population, assist in health management, and help patients with chronic diseases monitor their condition and effectively diagnose and treat them.
As a Chinese independent innovation product, Airdoc has been recognized in the field of artificial intelligence worldwide. In 2017, Airdoc became a key case selected by Microsoft from artificial intelligence enterprises in more than 140 countries around the world, and also became the first Chinese startup to appear on the Keynote of the Build Conference.
In 2018, Airdoc undertook the national key research and development plan project of “R&D and clinical trials of artificial intelligence screening and diagnosis systems for common blinding, teratogenic, and fatal diseases”.
In 2019, Airdoc’s article on community screening services in Shanghai was published in Eye, a sub journal of Nature. In addition, Airdoc and cooperating experts have published over 20 SCIs in highly rated journals in segmented fields, and jointly with partners have released the first artificial intelligence based “Blue Paper on Retinal Health for Chinese Medical Examiners” and “White Paper on Vision Development Prediction for Children and Adolescents.”.
As of today, Airdoc has been applied in many countries and regions such as China, the United States, Japan, Hong Kong, India, Australia, Finland, and other countries. Its partners cover medical institutions, physical examination institutions, lens chains, pharmaceutical companies, insurance scenarios, and so on. It has become the world’s largest artificial intelligence assessment service provider for retinal health, contributing to the healthy development of mankind in China.
