DeepTek Detects Tuberculosis from X-Rays

Tuberculosis is an issue close to home for Pune, India-based healthcare startup DeepTek. India has the world’s highest prevalence of the disease — accounting for over one-quarter of the 10 million new cases each year. DeepTek is a member of NVIDIA Inception, a virtual accelerator program that enables early-stage companies with fundamental tools, expertise and go-to-market support. The startup uses NVIDIA GPUs through Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services for training and inference of its deep learning algorithms.
