Speech Title: Applied Mathematical Models for COVID-19 Recognition 


COVID-19 is a pandemic disease that caused more than 6.58 million deaths until 28/Oct/2022. A CT scan is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to get detailed images of the body noninvasively for diagnostic purposes. Traditional manual labelling of CT-based cans is tedious. Our lab uses numerous applied mathematical models to solve the problem, such as transfer learning, graph neural networks, attention neural networks, weakly supervised-learning networks, etc. We also use cloud computing techniques to run our developed app on the remote server to help doctors in the suburban area. Two other chest-related diseases: secondary pulmonary tuberculosis and community-acquired pneumonia, will be covered in this talk.
