  • Fairtility is coming out of stealth mode with its technology to improve the critical in vitro fertilization (IVF) stage of choosing the most viable embryo to implant, reported ISRAEL21c.

  • The Israeli start-up applies artificial intelligence (AI) and computer vision to the task, with its implantation prediction accuracy exceeding 90% in tests, according to the news source.

  • The technology, now undergoing pilots in Israel and several other countries, is "trained" using plentiful existing datasets and embryo images at different developmental stages.

  • "Our product far exceeds the accuracy of human embryologists and automates the process to make it more efficient," remarked CEO Eran Eshed, adding "our objective is to shorten time to pregnancy and reduce all the associated costs, pain and stress."

  • Fairtility is preparing European and US submissions and expects to go commercial this year, the news source added.
