Israel-led research team develops AI-based model to detect sleep apnea

An international research team led by the Technion–Israel Institute of Technology has developed an innovative, AI-based software to detect obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a condition in which people stop breathing for about 10 seconds or more while they are asleep.

The prevalence of this syndrome increases with age and affects more than one in five individuals in the general adult population — particularly males and those who are overweight.
