Executive Summary :

AI tools are widely used for medical image diagnosis. The primary requirement of such tools is big-data i.e. availability of large datasets. We report a simple machine learning architecture that can has been trained using deep learning algorithms and the pooled x-ray image datasets. The format of any test image of a new person will be automatically transformed and diagnosed using the AI tool. A similar web-interface can be setup for our tool using a simple desktop Linux server. It will also validate the input images before giving a result. Using our tool and web-interface anybody can upload a chest x-ray or CT-scan in standard image formats such as jpeg, png etc. and check whether it is COVID-19 positive or not.
