Prognica Labs Joins NVIDIA Inception

Dubai, UAE — Dec 09, 2020 — Prognica Labs today announced it has joined NVIDIA Inception, a program designed to nurture startups revolutionizing industries with advancements in AI and data sciences.

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women (24.2%, i.e. about one in 4 of all new cancer cases diagnosed in women worldwide are breast cancer). Approximately 2.1 million women were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018, according to a WHO report. In developing countries, more than 50% of the women who are detected with breast cancer end up losing their lives within a year.

Examining medical images and data is time-consuming and relies on the judgment and skills of highly specialized experts and many a time the interpretation is prone to errors since humans suffer from factors like fatigue and distractions. This is why patients sometimes have different interpretations from various doctors, which can make choosing a plan of action a stressful and tedious process.

Prognica is addressing these issues through our AI-powered platform, which can analyze medical images and generate medical reports — from anywhere and with complete accuracy.

NVIDIA Inception will allow Prognica to better collaborate with many other cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence and machine learning startups by leveraging valuable go-to-market support, expertise, and technology. Joining this program will help and support Prognica Labs’ Computer Vision and Machine Learning solutions. The program will also offer Prognica the opportunity to collaborate with industry-leading experts and other AI-driven organizations.

Khalid Shaikh, CEO, Founder of Prognica Labs said – “Prevention and early detection are central to our mission of helping save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight against cancer. We are developing an adjunct, precision tool for mammography and ultrasound to equip radiologists with the objective, data-driven results they need to support patients and their healthcare team as they make decisions about their breast cancer screening, treatment, and diagnosis. We expect our participation in NVIDIA’s Inception program to push the limits of innovation with AI-based medical diagnosis to greater heights to serve the global society.”

NVIDIA Inception is a program that helps startups during critical stages of product development, prototyping, and deployment. Every Inception member gets a custom set of ongoing benefits, such as NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute credits, marketing support, and technical assistance, which provides startups with the fundamental tools to help them grow.
