We’ll see more and more AI coming into play a big role in many fields of the medical area and therefore, embryology is also one part that is seeing AI being able to help with the selection. We have seen and reported in many clinics across the world that when they have used time lapse machine, for example, which is almost like a CCTV camera, watching the embryos continuously, it actually has helped increase the implantation rate and clinical pregnancy rate because better embryos have been selected through using the time-lapse machine.

IVF is an industry that is really young. As time goes we have been discovering new technologies. With the arrival of the twenty-first century, technology has been growing really fast and we have been accommodating these new technologies and techniques in the IVF laboratory.

Nowadays, we use new technologies such as time-lapse incubators, we use artificial intelligence for a semen analysis or facial resemblance. For example, Fenomatch has developed a tool using artificial intelligence that measures the facial resemblance between the patient and the donor. This way we are able to assist doctors and embryologists by giving them a score based on the facial resemblance and help them in the decision of choosing the right donor for their patients.
