Jorge is microscopIA founder and team leader. A Colombian startup designing biomedical solutions for low-income and rural communities, microscopIA is working to develop an automated microscope power by artificial intelligence to tackle the misdiagnosis of tropical diseases. Currently, Jorge is planning to conclude the diagnostic trials with human subjects in five years, and present the results to the Pan American Health Organization. If the technology is validated, microscopIA intends to take the microscope to the most affected areas in Africa, Asia, and Latin America where tropical diseases are emerging public health issue.
