Revolution in Health Sector with AI Developments

#artificialintelligence

Developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) have taken the world by storm. Whether for military or civilian use, the hybrid character of AI has placed it in high demand. On the one hand, the world is witnessing an AI arms race to dominate adversaries, while on the other, AI is being used to serve humanity. The widespread applications of AI in various sectors such as health, education and agriculture etc. depicts its significance in the civil sector. Since AI is invisible to the human eye, it has induced changes in how the security landscape in particular is also adopting this technology.


AI-powered software can detect coronavirus in chest X-rays in SECONDS and with 98 percent accuracy

Daily Mail - Science & tech

US healthcare officials are working tirelessly to deliver coronavirus test results in a timely manner, but the process includes getting tested, having the sample processed and then delivering the results. Now, a scientist has developed new technology that can produce a diagnosis in just a matter of seconds and with 98 percent accuracy. Barath Narayanan, a scientist at the University of Dayton Research Institute, has designed a specific software code that can detect the disease just by scanning chest X-rays. The process uses a deep learning algorithm that was trained using scans of those with and without the disease in order to search searches for markings associated with coronavirus. A scientist has developed new technology that can produce a diagnosis in just a matter of seconds and with 98 percent accuracy.


Open-source AI tool aims to help identify coronavirus infections ZDNet

Find a hospital taking in coronavirus cases, and you'll most likely find departments often in need of more staff and without enough testing kits. Now one Canadian AI startup is hoping to develop tools that will automatically detect COVID-19 infections from X-rays, and help guide medical professionals on how seriously the infection has taken hold. DarwinAI, which spun out of work at the University of Waterloo, normally works on AI explainability. The company makes a tool that can show why deep-learning modules make the decisions they do, enabling users to correct the inputs that lead to wrong decisions, and fix the architecture or retrain the system to prevent the same mistakes in future. The idea is that, by getting an insight into why AI does what it does, companies can speed up the development of their AI products.


How AI Is Helping in the Fight Against COVID-19

On Dec. 31, BlueDot, a Toronto-based company that uses artificial intelligence to track the spread of infectious diseases, alerted its customers about a cluster of unusual pneumonia cases in Wuhan, China. Nine days later, the World Health Organization confirmed the discovery of a novel coronavirus, later named COVID-19, in Wuhan. Today, COVID-19 is a pandemic that has spread to 180 countries, claimed more than 83,000 lives, and triggered a near-global lockdown. And for the moment, the best solution to contain the spread of the virus is to improve personal hygiene and exercise social distancing. In the meantime, politicians, scientists, and researchers are teaming up to find systematic ways to fight the virus and care for patients.

Artificial intelligence technologies such as machine learning, natural-language processing, computer vision, and deep learning can help track and identify the novel coronavirus. On Dec. 31, BlueDot, a Toronto-based company that uses artificial intelligence to track the spread of infectious diseases, alerted its customers about a cluster of unusual pneumonia cases in Wuhan, China. Nine days later, the World Health Organization confirmed the discovery of a novel coronavirus, later named COVID-19, in Wuhan. Today, COVID-19 is a pandemic that has spread to 180 countries, claimed more than 50,000 lives, and triggered a near-global lockdown. And for the moment, the best solution to contain the spread of the virus is to improve personal hygiene and exercise social distancing.
