We are a non-profit organization building an infrastructure to develop, manufacture, distribute and operate remote-controlled ventilators and oxygen concentrators that will also gather high-resolution treatment data for scientific research and treatment optimization.
To address the critical lack of highly qualified COVID-19 caregivers we plan to include as many automation features for the ventilator, from automatic first aid response over automated weaning trials to diagnosis and treatment recommendation. This requires a wide array of Artificial intelligence methods such as basic decision trees but also supervised and unsupervised machine learning techniques where the machine analyses all the available data and clusters patients into specific groups and identifies those who received consistently effective treatment.
Another goal of this is to create a disease model that can be used to simulate ventilation patterns and can be used to allow for interactive training of fresh respiratory therapists specifically for COVID-19. Such a model would continue to have value beyond the pandemic and could bring valuable insight into the physiology of the lung.
We are looking for a true expert who is aware of the current consensus on the fundamental physics and biological processes behind the disease but is also capable to expand his horizon to what this kind of analysis of data might bring. That person would be working closely with an AI expert to identify suitable approaches to the opportunities described above.

Our mission is to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of the world's medical workforce fighting COVID-19
We are a non-profit organization building an infrastructure to develop, manufacture, distribute and operate remote-controlled ventilators and oxygen concentrators that will also gather high-resolution treatment data for scientific research and treatment optimization. Our equipment will be distributed on a "what you can pay" basis. Our Ventilator is different from other emergency Ventilators in that it will be controllable over the Internet, with the medical professional observing the patient over a phone camera, thus reducing viral load on the medical professionals at the front line, enabling those in stable countries to help and allowing one doctor to have an overview over many patients.
Our Ventilator is now in testing and we are finalizing fine air control. Parts cost for a single unit are 300$ but will drop in mass production and bulk ordering maybe even down to 200$.
Our roadmap consists of 4 Versions which can be deployed over the internet. It is envisaged that the Ventilator will be assembled by qualified volunteers, go through centralized quality control and then distributed to places of greatest needs on an international basis. Once enough funding is raised, a part of the workload will be outsourced to specialized companies.
