Abstract: Neural Networks (NN) is a subset of Machine Learning and is being used widely these days in predictive analysis of pre-processed images. CNN (Convolutional Neural Network) is a popular NN algorithm and it clearly outperforms ANN in this project. Inception V3, ResNet50, MobileNet and Xception  are the existing CNN models but are found to be less accurate and more time consuming. In our R&D lab we have developed a new CNN model called the H5 model. It is the best fit after the output is obtained from Haar Cascade Classifiers. A model which was developed for facial detection and distinction is now used for all objects detection with more accuracy focusing on five regions with different pixel Intensity scheme. The encouragingly high classification accuracy of our proposal implies that it can efficiently automate COVID-19 detection from radiograph images to provide a fast and reliable evidence of COVID-19 infection in the lung that can complement existing COVID-19 diagnostics modalities.
