Unlocking the Secrets of the Soul: AI Diagnosing Devastating Brain Disease Through Eye Analysis

How AI can look into your eyes and diagnose a devastating brain disease

The eyes are windows to the soul. This is an old saying that illustrates something we intuitively know to be true: you can learn so much about someone by looking at them deeply in the eye. How? Can we use it to better understand disease?

One company has made great strides in the right direction. Israel’s NeuraLight was founded in order to use science and AI for understanding the brain by looking at it.

NeuraLight’s focal disease is ALS. This is diagnosed by a subjective questionnaire of about a dozen question, followed up with tests like an EEG or MRI.

In less than 10 seconds, the AI system can measure 106 parameters like blink rate and dilation. This will be a digital biomarker that is AI enabled.
