To be part of a public involvement panel for the development of a new early diagnostic tool for Parkinson’s using artificial intelligence to analyse images of the eye.
Share thoughts about how the public may further be involved in the project.
Link to organisation:
The project will use NHS data of eye scans and feed this into artificial intelligence algorithms, to train it to recognise the characteristics associated with Parkinson’s. As the eye scanning technology is already available in an increasing number of high street opticians, the ultimate goal is that the testing becomes part of a routine eye test. 4 meetings will be held over the next 12 months, all will be available via zoom. A range of life experience is welcomed.
