DETECTING EARLY ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE MORE ACCURATELY AND QUICKLY WITH AI
Brain Analytics is a website platform implemented with artificial intellijjgence (AI) to calculate the probability of Alzheimer’s from an inputted MRI image. It supports diagnostic imaging doctors in detecting Alzheimer’s disease at early stages.
By using our platform, the doctor can receive a highly accurate result within 10 minutes, and the doctors required was reduced from four to one. We align with SDG goal 3 by strengthening the capabilities of developing countries by detecting a global health issue promptly. Brain Analytics is the first Alzheimer’s detector in the world with the implementation of machine learning, deep learning, and cognitive score.
CROWDFUNDING AND CROWDSOURCING’S PLATFORMS:
THE ASK AND THE CAMPAIGN’S RESULTS:
- Vietnamese radiology and neurology doctors:
These doctors help us because Brain Analytics can provide them a tool to support their work in diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease. As we needed feedback from these doctors to create the most suitable product for our customers, we paid 8 CAD for a 30-minute feedback session online per doctor. The feedback on the necessary of our website features and their demands were not only collected verbally during the online session but also quantitatively through Google Form.
- Angel investor – Tech Planter:
These investors want to make a big impact on society by reducing the overload problem at hospitals in big cities and also see the potential of our business to grow stronger with a good profit in the medical field. We gave them a prototype on the demo day. Since our product can fulfill their needs, we received decent financial support from them to take care of the technological problems.
- Angel investor – Ho Chi Minh International University:
The university wants to promote the students’ research activities to be realistic and useful for the community. Our project has the contribution of several Biomedical Engineering students, studying at the university, and has a great potential to penetrate the market. Thus the school gave us money to conduct market research and develop the product.
Our results since June 2021:
We received approximately 2,300 CAD from Tech Planter and over 500 CAD from Ho Chi Minh International University with 0% equity. This money can help us start building the Vietnamese Alzheimer’s database to test and improve the accuracy of our technology.
We invited 10 radiology and neurology doctors from 6 different hospitals in Vietnam to participate in our first prototype testing phase. Instead of paying 120 CAD for one medical expert to give us feedback, we paid our participants a total of 80 CAD to get various unbias opinions.

Before June 2021, we received the Consolation prize at Ho Chi Minh Artificial Intelligence 2020 (HAI) competition with the value of 2,000 CAD.
