The full system will include a trained neural network, developed by DarwinAI and the University of Waterloo, containerized in a ChRIS module, developed by Boston Children's Hospital with support from the Massachusetts Open Cloud, Boston University, and many others.

The solution will provide rapid and reliable screening of lung X-rays and CT images, computing the COVID-19 and pneumonia likelihoods as well as highlighting susceptible regions on the images. The system includes data collection, feature extraction, image classification, reporting and visualiztion in a web browser and can be rapidly deployed via a single command line install.
