    The role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in point-of-care biosensing devices, such as Lateral flow assays with Cardiac associated biomarkers, is being studied. - Image processing approaches are being experimentally and functionally implemented in order to establish quantification of the given lateral flow sample images. - Various machine learning and deep learning strategies for classifying distinct analyte sample concentrations in lateral flow samples (from captured images) are being investigated. - Novel techniques for predicting cardiac-related disorders from biomarkers found in lateral flow assays are being explored and developed, with the goal of improving the sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of the existing model.
