Assoc Prof Daniel Ting is a Consultant with the Surgical Retina Department at Singapore National Eye Centre and Associate Professor in Ophthalmology with Duke-NUS Medical School.
Assoc Prof Ting and his team collaborated with several leading eye centres globally to develop and validate a novel and robust artificial intelligence (AI) system using deep learning to detect referable diabetic retinopathy (DR), referable glaucoma suspect (GS) and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The study findings were published in the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) (Ting et al, JAMA Dec 2017). He has also been awarded an approximately USD 1 Million Research Grant from the Singapore National Medical Research Council to help to build an AI-integrated system for the Singapore national DR screening program.
Apart from DR screening, he is also actively researching on the utilization of AI and retinal imaging in predicting current and future micro- and macro-vascular complications for population with diabetes.
