VEON’s Beeline and Leading Medical Institute Join Forces to Redefine Future of Medical Diagnostics Through AI

Published

 on

VEON Ltd. (NASDAQ: VEON, Euronext Amsterdam: VEON), a leading global provider of connectivity and internet services, announced on October 12, that its mobile operator in Russia, Beeline, has signed an agreement with Sechenov University to create an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Laboratory for research and development into new technology solutions for healthcare, aiming to simplify and accelerate high-precision diagnostic. 

The new AI Laboratory will see data scientists and doctors collaborate on research and development of predictive medicine solutions in traumatology and oncology. Over 120 professionals from Beeline and Sechenov University, including data scientists, solution architects, neural network programmers and medical experts, will be involved in the new AI Lab to provide a critical mass of expertise. The AI Labs will undertake specific research programmes, scientific exchange and staff secondments, with IT infrastructure provided by Beeline’s datacentres. 

“Technology based on artificial intelligence is transforming modern medicine” states Kaan Terzioglu, CEO of VEON Group.  “We have invested in AI at the core of our digital operator businesses and are proud of our contribution to the development of state-of-the-art technology. This will be a game-changer in the way we support medical institutions, save lives and keep people healthy throughout their lifetime.” 

“This joint AI Lab will enable smart software solutions to be trained by findings from some of the best doctors in the industry and so help to significantly simplify and expedite high-precision diagnostics processes. said Evgeny Chereshnev, Executive Vice President of Beeline for Digital and New Business Development. “This greatly increases the chances of successful treatment of patients, and sometimes, literally saves lives. Our partnership with Sechenov University is a new direction for Beeline which is already yielding results. Sechenov’s experts are some of the best in the world, and we are delighted to be working with them to develop and apply high-tech solutions.” 

“Our partnership with Beeline began earlier this year. In particular, we focused on the study of joint pathology in the framework of Laboratory of Smart Nanotechnology for Clinical Applications supported by Megagrant from Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation. Based on the analysis of more than 4,000 medical records, we managed to create a model that determines the type of pathology and its localization with over 80% accuracy. This technological solution can help doctors significantly accelerate the process of diagnosing joint pathologies and its accuracy, and also makes it possible to predict the possible disease, track the effectiveness of treatment and dynamically make adjustments to it. For a patient, this can open the way for timely help and medical treatment instead of surgery,” explains Petr Glybochko, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, prof., MD, Rector of the Sechenov University. “The next step would be to work with the Russian healthcare system to test AI diagnostics in a clinical environment. In the future, we plan to extend our work to the field of cardiology, immunology, pulmonology and post-covid therapy.” 

“The development of AI solutions in medicine and their introduction into practical healthcare will enable the solving of complex diagnostic problems at a new level. New software solutions, based on the use of neural networks and artificial intelligence will be integrated in electronical medical records for the Russian Healthcare System. The project will create a collaboration of IT engineers and medical experts that builds the preconditions for a real technological breakthrough.  This can enable the creation of “digital twins” and their introduction into clinical practice. This is one of the main directions of development of Sechenov University within the framework of the Priority 2030 project, which will be implemented thanks to the cooperation of specialists from Sechenov University and VEON’s Beeline,” said Petr Glybochko, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, prof., MD, Rector of the Sechenov University.

Comium, who settled fully its pending license fees (2020 and 2021) before their due date, based on PURA’s request, thanked on Wednesday November 24, 2021 The Gambia’s President his excellency Mr. Adama Barrow, its attorney general and minister of justice honorable Mr. Dawda Jallow, its Minister of information and Communication Infrastructure honorable Mr. Ebrima Sillah and the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) represented by its Director General Mr. Yusupha M. Jobe for their efforts, understanding and goodwill to resolve the issues that had loomed over its operation in The Gambia, helping to unblock the majority of the offset operators including Gambia Telecommunications Cellular Company Limited (Gamcel).

The company also stressed that a number of media outlets worked to draw a rift between Comium, PURA, and the Ministry of information and communication but to no affect.

In parallel, Comium as well as its investor Monty Mobile have been working tirelessly to not only provide financial backing to the company but also bring forth investments to the country meant to enhance the lives of the Gambian people.

Investments and technical backup from Monty Mobile will be used to evolve Comium’s current network to the latest cutting-edge technology. These plans were welcomed by local authorities, as they come in alignment with The Gambian’s officials’ goals and objectives to transform the country into a prominent ICT services country.

The deal will allow Comium to bring forth more of its application services running on its wireless network in an attempt to boost the country’s state of productivity, create jobs, and inject The Gambia with investments to accelerate its economy.
