Tech joins fight against coronavirus

#artificialintelligence

Disinfecting robots, smart helmets, thermal camera-equipped drones and advanced facial recognition software are all being deployed in the fight against Covid-19 at the heart of the outbreak in China. President Xi Jinping has called on the country's tech sector to help battle the epidemic. Healthcare tech is also being used to identify coronavirus symptoms, find new treatments and monitor the spread of the disease, which has so far infected more than 90,000 people worldwide. But is it up to the job? Several Chinese firms have developed automated technologies for contactless delivery, spraying disinfectants and performing basic diagnostic functions, in order to minimise the risk of cross-infection.


Coronavirus: How Artificial Intelligence, Data Science And Technology Is Used To Fight The Pandemic

Since the first report of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Wuhan, China, it has spread to at least 100 other countries. As China initiated its response to the virus, it leaned on its strong technology sector and specifically artificial intelligence (AI), data science, and technology to track and fight the pandemic while tech leaders, including Alibaba, Baidu, Huawei and more accelerated their company's healthcare initiatives. As a result, tech startups are integrally involved with clinicians, academics, and government entities around the world to activate technology as the virus continues to spread to many other countries. Here are 10 ways artificial intelligence, data science, and technology are being used to manage and fight COVID-19. The better we can track the virus, the better we can fight it.

A drone hovers over a befuddled elderly lady, almost stalking her. Speakers attached to the flying machine chime out a sing-song but commanding warning. "Grandma, do not go out without wearing a protective mask, and you better stay at home to be safe." A photographer at a village in northern China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region captures the rural woman's encounter with ultra-modern technology--something in ample use in the country's aggressive fight against the outbreak of an unknown strain of coronavirus that has no vaccine, no cure. Drones tennoying warnings and steps people should take to check the spread of the virus--checking body temperature and spraying disinfectant--in the early days of the outbreak was one of the examples of how the country pulled out all its state-of-the-art technological stops against the contagion.
