How Vaxini uses pattern recognition to make sense of images
Computers don’t “see” photos in the same way that people do. When you look at a photo, you might see your best friend standing in front of her house or a picture of your vaccination card. From a computer’s perspective, that same image is simply a bunch of data that it may interpret as shapes and information about color values.
While a computer won’t react like you do when you see that photo, a computer can be trained to recognize certain patterns of color and shapes. For example, a computer might be trained to recognize the common patterns of shapes and colors that make up a digital image of a vaccine sticker, recognize the product you got in your jab, the address of the vaccination site, the date of application, batch number of the product, expiration date of the drug, etc. This technology helps Vaxini organize your vaccination records and lets Vaxini enrich your data by automatically filling missing information stamped in your vaccination card to your vaccination profile.
