#artificialintelligence

DUBAI: Robots can act as an interface between a doctor and a patient wherein they can carry out diagnostic and treatment processes, reducing the human contact and risk of transmission of infection during the coronavirus pandemic, an expert in the field of Robotics has said. Bartlomiej Stanczyk, Robotics Engineer with ACCREA Engineering in Germany, was speaking during an e-discussion on the the topic- Using Artificial Intelligence to Tackle Epidemics: The COVID-19 Model. The event, organised by the Abu Dhabi-based TRENDS Research & Advisory, brought together leading experts from around the world who deliberated on the importance of artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, and other technologies in the ongoing fight against the COVID-19 that has infected more than 3.8 million people and killed over 260,000 people across the world. Stanczyk said that robots could help doctors keep a safe distance from the patient by using probes and other remote medical equipment. "We aim to build a completely autonomous diagnostician through robotics, thus enabling the transfer of the skill from the human doctor on the machine carrying out the treatment," he said.

Artificial Intelligence aiding fight against coronavirus

#artificialintelligence

DUBAI: Four months into the battle against the latest strain of the coronavirus, it is clear that humanity must deploy all medical and technological tools at its disposal. Roughly half the global population has been placed on lockdown and billions of dollars are being poured into vaccine research, yet the total number of confirmed cases worldwide has hit the two million mark. With no sign of an imminent breakthrough, the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to speed up the search for an antidote to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19 is a no-brainer. In fact, scientific institutions and governments have already been harnessing AI to generate possible solutions to the global public-health emergency. Shameer Thaha, CSO at Accubits, a UAE-based AI and blockchain focused solutions and development company, says AI is playing a key role since day one of the fight against humanity's common foe.


Clearview AI exposes source code to controversial facial recognition app and company credentials

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Security researchers say a misconfigured server owned by the controversial facial recognition company, Clearview AI, exposed its software's source code as well as internal credentials and keys. According to TechCrunch, which first reported on the flaw, Mossab Hussein, the chief security officer at SpiderSilk, a security firm based in Dubai, uncovered a flawed Clearview server storing sensitive data, allowing users to bypass its password protection. Specifically, Hussein found that a misconfiguration allowed anyone to register as a new user and access the database containing Clearview's code regardless of whether they had entered password. TechCrunch reports that, in addition to source code that would allow anyone to use Clearview's software, the database also contained passwords and other keys that would allow one to access the company's cloud storage buckets. Finished versions of Clearview's apps for iOS and Android as well as pre-developer beta versions were contained in those buckets, TechCrunch reports.
