Stealthy machine learning player A4L announced that it has raised CA$10 million ($7.1 million) to develop and test its algorithm for heart disease. The Toronto-based company says that its proprietary variable extraction algorithm has analyzed and manipulated 2 billion data points in laboratory research, which was supported by the Southern Ontario Smart Computing Innovations Platform and the Ontario Centers of Excellence. The data consists of “patient physiologic signals and clinical outcomes information to detect and assess specific diseases.” A4L has a U.S. subsidiary in Research Triangle Park, NC, where hardware development occurs.
