Today at the annual EENA Conference, EENA and leading AI developer Corti announced a call for applications for emergency services control rooms to take part in an exciting new project. The project has the potential to save thousands of lives and change forever the way emergency medical calls are handled.

What is the project about?

Corti’s system is an Artificial Intelligence-based speech analysis of real-time, live emergency medical services calls that makes instant predictions to detect out-of-hospital cardiac arrests… with up to 95% accuracy. Used in conjunction with human call-takers and dispatchers, it can significantly reduce error rates and make critical diagnoses faster.

The system is already up and running in Copenhagen with impressive results – which is why EENA is getting involved to extend the project. Four new pilot sites will be selected to start running Corti’s tool from late summer/early September 2018 to April 2019.
What is the timeline?

Four pilot sites, from four different countries, will be chosen by June 2018. When the model is trained to a level where the artificial intelligence can reach the targeted accuracy, the pilot site will then be able to test it with their local personnel. After 6 months of testing, Corti, EENA, and the four pilot sites will prepare a report with the results of the pilot project to be presented at the EENA Conference 2019.

Before applying to join this project as pilot site, please note that:

1. Your organisation should be able to provide recorded calls that are labelled (linked to an incident) to Corti in order to train the Artificial Intelligence (AI).

2. Your organisation should agree to use the AI tool provided by Corti in its operations, share its experience with the project team and in the project documentation to be published during and after the project.

3. There is no funding for this opportunity. The successful organisations will need to cover the cost of the effort required to participate in the pilot project (human resources; travel expenses for the kick-off meeting in Copenhagen and for pilot sites’ outcomes presentation at EENA Conference in April 2019 in Dubrovnik).

4. The deadline for applying is 16 May 2018.
