MSF receives Google grant to develop a free smartphone app for diagnosing antibiotic resistance

MSF Foundation has been awarded a $1.3 million Google Artificial Intelligence Impact Challenge grant to develop a smartphone app that would help doctors and clinicians diagnose antibiotic resistance in low-resource settings.

The app, known as ASTapp, would use image processing and artificial intelligence technology to make it easier for non-expert microbiologists to interpret tests that measure resistance to antibiotics. It will also help clinicians make better treatment plans for the patients. The development of the first version of ASTapp is expected to take approximately four months.
