Xtract Technologies Inc, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSX:PAT) (OTC:PTOTF) (FRANKFURT: 0PL), has secured a $150,000 CAD grant with Health Canada to use AI to improve success rates of organ donation and transplantations within Canada. According to the press release, "Xtract AI will develop a semi-automated deep learning system to identify the best potential for donor-recipient matches for kidney transplantation. Building on publicly available data, these matches will be labeled as a "good" or "bad" based on the organ survival times. This dataset will then be used to train a model which can be used for identifying better matches. This system can be used to identify a confidence score for all of the possible matches and will be ranked to identify optimal donors for a given recipient." Elliot Holtham, a founder at Xtract AI, said:
"This is exciting work for a very important issue. Deep learning algorithms are highly generalizable and we hope our model may be expanded to other organ transplants, as needed."
