Docomo, Tohoku Univ develop AI service for periodontal disease detection

Thursday 23 May 2019 | 11:13 CET | News
NTT Docomo and Tohoku University have started the development of an AI-based service that will be used in the detection of periodontal disease. The service will photograph a person's gums with a smartphone. The smartphone-based service will then analyze gum color and shape, compensating for photo brightness and camera shake, to determine the risk of periodontal disease. The service is expected to support communication with dentists and prevent the aggravation of early-stage periodontal disease.
