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

#artificialintelligence

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.

Creativity during trying times

BEIJING: Wang Jiayi, a 31-year-old fashion magazine editor living in Tongzhou district of Beijing, is relying on a vending machine powered by artificial intelligence (AI) at her residential compound to supply her with fresh fruit, vegetables and other necessities. "I select products displayed on the transparent door of the machine and use my mobile to scan a quick response code. Once it is scanned, the door opens and payment is processed automatically after I make my selection and close the door, " Wang said. The entire process is convenient and requires no human-to-human contact, she added. The AI vending machines by e-commerce giant JD's logistics innovation laboratory, are being rolled out in Beijing, Shanghai and Chongqing due to the rising demand for unmanned shopping experiences amid the Covid-19 outbreak.


Artificial Intelligence Vs. COVID-19: How Is AI Helping To Fight The Pandemic? -

Artificial intelligence (AI) often raises concerns about privacy and deception apropos of facial recognition and forged entities. However, the massive outbreak of the novel coronavirus is now driving most of the technology companies and experts to look for AI's abet. Since the first report of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Wuhan, China – the virus has now spread to at least 100 other countries. Nevertheless, the undisclosed information holds the key to the certainty that the artificial intelligence warning system, run by Toronto startup "BlueDot" flagged a news report from China about enigmatic pneumonia distressing the residents of Wuhan, back in December 2019. As China leans on its strong technology sector, specifically artificial intelligence and data science to track and combat this pandemic, tech leaders like Alibaba, and Huawei chose to accelerate their company's healthcare initiatives.


Health systems are in need of radical change; virtual care will lead the way

MIT Technology Review

The covid-19 pandemic has shown us how much health care is in need of not just tweaking but radical change. The pressure on global health systems, providers, and staff has already been increasing to unsustainable levels. But it also illustrates how much can be achieved in times of crisis: for example, China and the UK recently built thousands of extra beds in intensive care units, or ICUs, in less than two weeks. Health-care reform will need to spur a totally different approach to how care is organized, delivered, and distributed, which will be paramount in a (hopefully soon) post-covid-19 era. It's the only way to deliver the quadruple aim of health care: better outcomes, improved patient and staff experience, and lower cost of care.
