Jocelyn Teh Shuang Ru of UTP had clinched the first place in the 2022 Intel Building Digital Readiness Program for the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Enthusiast category.
A final year Electrical and Electronics Engineering student, Teh’s innovative winning project was called Early Detection of Tuberculosis from X-Ray Images using Deep Learning.
Tuberculosis is the second deadliest infectious disease in the world, with 1.5 million deaths in 2020. It is treatable provided it is detected early. According to Teh, by using Intel OpenVINO and Xeon Scalable Processor, deep learning model can be trained with mass data collection of chest x-ray images for subsequent early detection amongst the population.
As the winner, she received one unit of Movidius Neural Compute Stick 2, certificate of excellence and participation.
Organised by Intel Malaysia, in collaboration with the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia and CREST, the 2022 Intel Building Digital Readiness Program provides opportunities for youths to learn AI skills and apply them responsibly to design any AI solution in building long-term competitiveness.
UTP is immensely proud and congratulates Teh on her remarkable achievement.
