Maastricht University’s Department of Precision Medicine has released an artificial intelligence (AI) tool for the triage of Covid-19 patients, the same week as receiving a €920k grant from the European Commission for its DRAGON project.

The DRAGON project applies AI and machine learning to deliver decision support systems for clinicians.

Maastricht University precision medicine department head Professor Philippe Lambin said: “We are excited to be participating in the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic with our Decision Support System for Risk Assessment of COVID-19 patients. We have repurposed our AI methods, usually applied to oncology questions, to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
