Innovation in healthcare — CHARTwatch

CHARTwatch is a revolutionary early warning system that monitors patients to predict deterioration within 48 hours. It analyzes over 100 variables hourly, categorizing patients as low, medium, or high risk. If a patient is high risk, CHARTwatch alerts the medical team for prompt intervention, reducing ICU admissions and death rates. Implemented at St. Michael’s Hospital, it has shown a remarkable 20% decrease in patient mortality.

Innovation in our freshwater lakes – Environment Canada

Vector Institute researchers have developed a groundbreaking AI framework to map and manage invasive mussels in Canada’s freshwater lakes. Using computer vision, the framework accurately identifies individual zebra and quagga mussels in lakebed images. While current manual mapping methods are limited and time-consuming, the AI framework offers dense mapping capabilities that enable targeted treatments and resource deployment.

Innovation in econometrics — Food Chain

AI plays a significant role in the growth, production, and distribution of food. Predictive machine learning models now complement traditional econometrics for accurate predictions in the increase and decrease in food prices. The 2022 report forecasts a 5 to 7 percent increase, driven by COVID-19 effects and climate change challenges in transportation and the labor market.
