"Reinventing" the aged ECG technology with deep learning.

While ECG has a history of over 100 years and is considered a "mature" technology in the field of medical examinations, it is still widely used worldwide. Many healthcare professionals, including doctors, spend a long time training to read ECG data, however they still fear overlooking.

Furthermore, in the 21st century, the technology for automatic ECG analyzing machine has not advanced. The technology of analyzing arrhythmia is a challenging area for classical machine learning. Consequently, there are still patients worldwide, not just in Japan, who do not have sufficient opportunities for examination, diagnosis and treatment.

To overcome such challenges, Cardio Intelligence collaborates between cardiologists and AI specialists. Then we develop an ECG analysis artificial intelligence (AI) with the specialized ECG knowledge and deep learning technology, going beyond traditional automated analysis machine.

This technology enables support for medical examinations even in remote area where there are no cardio specialists. Furthermore, by utilizing deep learning, it becomes possible to detect the subtlest signs that physicians have not noticed before, that leads to "reinvent" ECG technology and to provide new value.

We aim to create an environment where heart disease can be detected and treated as soon as possible by providing our technology and supporting the healthcare field.


SmartRobin AI Series is a long-term ECG analysis software that automatically detects atrial fibrillation (AF). AF is a major cause of stroke and can be prevented through early diagnosis and treatment.

However, detection of AF is difficult for non-specialists in the field of cardiology, and furthermore, ECG analysis is time-consuming and labor-intensive.

The quick ECG analysis by the SmartRobin AI Series will not only solve problems experienced by medical professionals, but will also contribute to reducing the burden of hospital visits for patients.

*This product is only available in Japan at this time.


In addition to the existing SmartRobin projects, following three pipelines are in progress.

In order to reduce the burden on medical professionals and to make ECG testing more easily accessible, we are currently working on the development of medical AI for ECG analysis that possesses the same level of accuracy as a cardiologist.

ECG are often used in medical examinations and contain useful information about the health of the heart. However, they are complex entities composed of intercepted electrical signals leaking from the heart to the body's surface.

Cardiologists and physicians are able to quickly read useful information from ECG and apply it to treatment because of their training based on the results of medical science, which is the culmination of human wisdom. We are working daily with specialists to apply this human wisdom into our products.

Although AI has become capable of performing human-like tasks in recent years, they have achieved it in quite different ways from those of humans. Therefore, AI has the potential to perform tasks that humans are unable to do.

In fact, the AI we are developing can detect signs of arrhythmia from ECG, even if it doesn't currently show arrhythmia. AI is gradually becoming able to do things that are difficult for specialists.

We invite you to join us in opening up new medical possibilities of ECG, a biological signal that picks up complex information about the human body, through the lens of AI.
