MalariaSpot, a game that allows diagnosing malaria cases

Malaria kills more than a million people every year and in developing countries, it is a real public health problem. A group of young Spaniards have taken advantage of the usefulness of artificial intelligence and collective diagnosis to create MalariaSpot, an app that allows detecting cases of malaria by playing “hunting” parasites. The algorithms used make it possible for the opinion of 20 non-expert players to be equivalent to that of a professional, which means that more affected people can receive treatment. The MalariaSpot team continues to seek investors, sponsors and foundations who want to support their project. Those interested can send an email to:
