They are young, capable and successful. And you should know them. We present a diverse thirty Czech talents from the world of business, startups, science, sports and art, which can inspire you, no matter how much you want.

At first, it never occurred to him that this could be a promising startup with global ambitions. He and his wife, Carolina, just wanted to help doctors fight the coronavirus pandemic. They combined their knowledge - she as an anthropologist and he as a specialist in artificial intelligence and machine learning. The result is Carebotwhich, with the help of artificial intelligence and the knowledge of hundreds of thousands of X-rays, helps doctors to see better. He has made several successful investments and a trip to Czech and then foreign hospitals. Together with their friend and co-founder Carebot Matěj Misař, the Kvaks are now expanding their team and starting working on preclinical trials so that they can obtain medical certification.

Carebot participates in the new Caelestinus incubator!

A new startup incubator is starting in the Czech Republic, focusing on the hitherto neglected area of healthcare. His name is Caelestinus and behind him is Tomáš Studeník, who launched the domestic version of the FuckUp Nights concept in the Czech Republic. But perhaps there will be no further contributions to this series from his new project.

The connection between healthcare and technology and artificial intelligence is a promising field, but so far most incubators and investors have avoided it - for example, due to the high regulation of the field. And that is exactly what Studeník and three partners want to change.

„We are the only incubator in Central Europe connecting four completely different partners. We work directly with IKEM, the CTU Faculty of Biotechnology Engineering and the American company InterSystems, which finances the project," says Studeník. The fourth partner is its consulting company Insane Business Idea.

Among the voices that will be available to beginning entrepreneurs will be the representatives of the Carebot startup Matěj Misař and Daniel Kvak, who is in this year's Forbes 30 under 30 selection.

"We do not have decades of experience in the field, but we have gone through a rocket year with a lot of victories, but also stumbles and dead ends. And we will do everything we can to ensure that no one else has to go through them, "says Misař.

Together with Kvak, they developed a neural network model that helps doctors diagnose, for example, from a lung X-ray. "A year ago, investors here were very afraid to go to healthcare, now it is gradually changing and a new incubator can help," adds Misař.

At the end of the nine-month incubation program, in which startups can participate both physically and virtually, there will be a final presentation of individual projects at IKEM, where investors from, for example, Pilulka Lab, Credo Ventures and other international actors will come to hear ideas.

Carebot reveals what the human eye may not catch. It can help doctors significantly

Artificial intelligence instead of a doctor? Machine learning is also gaining ground in medicine, and the Brno startup Carebot will probably push the boundaries in this regard.

Daniel Kvak is a doctoral student at Masaryk University in Brno, his field is artificial intelligence and machine learning. Together with his wife Karolína, who studies anthropology, they developed a neural network model through which they can safely select those that indicate pathology, including covid-19, on the basis of machine learning from X-rays.

"The Carebot application can mark chest findings almost immediately on chest X-rays," says the founder of the company, whose work has aroused great interest in professional circles. Carebot carefully, with machine precision and at the same time effectively searches for findings that the doctor in the hospital would not have noticed.

It can detect lung disease at an early stage and can help save lives. "We use the method of so-called computer vision, so it is not, in the true sense of the word, about comparing images. It is an algorithm of artificial intelligence of neural networks. We submit tens of thousands of images with annotations to the network, based on which the system learns to assess images. However, he does not compare them with any database of his own, "Kvak explains the principle on which Carebot works.
