An Egyptian engineer managed to invent a medical robot capable of dealing with and diagnosing diseases and withdrawing samples from patients, including the swab for the Corona virus, which led him to obtain an international crown in Switzerland
The robot can measure the vital functions of patients, as well as conduct medical x-rays for them and write their own reports. The inventor won a silver medal and a prize at the Geneva International Exhibition of Inventions in 2021.
Mahmoud El-Koumi named this robot "Kira", saying that it is the first robot in the world capable of pulling swabs for the Corona virus through artificial intelligence technology
Al-Koumi told Sky News Arabia, "I found that the process of diagnosing the patient's condition, performing radiology and analysis takes time, and in some cases this time needed to reach the correct diagnosis before writing the treatment may lead to a delay and deterioration of the patient's condition, and accordingly I created a robot that saves time and effort and performs these operations quickly. and efficiency.”
El-Koumi added, "The idea is to produce a number of robots in Egypt and countries of the world that are of the same type and can be taught by deep learning, similar to the experience gained by a human doctor, where the robot gets experience through trial and error and correcting the error, and then it takes the experience from Each patient and each case according to its level, and information is obtained and linked to the rest of the robots in a single network.”
The Egyptian engineer explains that "the information that the robot obtains is with the rest of the robots in the whole world, and with the increase in the volume of information for each robot, it becomes easy to compare the situation in front of it with the information it has, and it is compared with the cases stored in it, and then provide a proper diagnosis of the patient's condition."
