A.I. Could Help Spot Telltale Signs Of COVID-19 In X-Rays Digital Trends

There are many pain points when it comes to the coronavirus, officially known as COVID-19. One of them is how exactly to test people for it when the necessary testing kits are in short supply and, according to at least some theories, many more people may have already had it than current estimates suggest. One possible solution could be to allow artificial intelligence to scrutinize chest X-rays of patients' lungs to spot signs of potential coronavirus-caused lung damage. That's the basis for several exciting and promising attempts to develop a neural network that could be used to give a strong indication of whether or not a patient likely has COVID-19. Researchers at Chinese medical company Infervision recently teamed up with Wuhan Tongji Hospital in China to develop a COVID-19 diagnostic tool.
