Sep 2020 – We extend our heartiest congratulations to both co-founders of EyRIS, Profs Wynne Hsu and Lee Mong Li for making it onto the inaugural Singapore 100 Women in Tech (SG100WIT) List. The SGWIT100 2020 recognises the contributions of women in the tech sector and nominees are celebrated for their ability to influence, inspire and impact on community and industry.
Both Profs Hsu and Lee are co-inventors of SELENA+ and have been working on this project since 2013. They are the early adopters of deep learning systems to screen fundus images for abnormalities. This 7-year journey has culminated in SELENA+ being implemented as one of the projects in Singapore’s National AI Strategy for nation-wide diabetic screening. This impactful solution has the potential to globally transform chronic care for patients with diabetes and is currently being commericalised internationally.
Both professors are currently conducting research on revolutionary technologies for retina image analysis, enabling accurate predictive stratification of at-risk individuals for cardio-vascular diseases.

EyRIS specialises in the development and deployment of AI Deep Learning System in the healthcare industry. SELENA+ is an automated system that is able to detect 3 retinal diseases concurrently. Through analysis of colour retinal images, the system is able to identify signs of diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration. This award-winning product was also recently cited to be one of five National AI Strategy unveiled by the Singapore government. Retinal photography is the most common and cost-effective DR screening method. With the growing diabetes population, assessment of hundreds of millions of photographs will be unsustainable in the future.
