How AI is helping to Address Staffing Shortages in Healthcare

#artificialintelligence

Over the last two years, staffing shortages in healthcare have impacted many hospital and healthcare facility business operations, especially during emergency events like COVID-19. A resourceful approach is overdue, and artificial intelligence might have a part in ensuring the continuity of patient care and security by using various AI tools. For the past two years, the whole world is facing a harsh time due to Covid-19 and most of its effect comes on the healthcare industry. Doctors and healthcare frontlines are working never-ending shifts because the no. of patients is rising day by day which makes them also think about their career once in their lifetime. Many highly skilled healthcare professionals, who tend to be older, are choosing to retire rather than face the Covid-19 associated risks of working in a hospital.


Trolley Problem, Inc review – a thrill ride into the world of ethical dilemmas

The Guardian

Should a hospital introduce a mandatory vaccination programme to stop a breakout of infant disease when one of five children will become ill from the vaccine? Should an AI company programme a self-driving car to save its passengers at any cost? Should a government torture a prisoner to extract information that is certain to save many lives? In Trolley Problem, Inc – a game named after the well-known philosophical dilemma by which an onlooker can choose to divert a runaway trolley to kill one person instead of five – you have 40 seconds to answer these and scores of other ethical quandaries. As the timer drains, a well-spoken, gently sarcastic female commentator articulates the counterargument to your intended choice.


Using machine-learning to distinguish antibody targets

AIHub

The virus's spike proteins (purple) are a key antibody target, with some antibodies attaching to the top (darker purple) and others to the stem (paler zone). A new study shows that it is possible to use the genetic sequences of a person's antibodies to predict what pathogens those antibodies will target. "Our research is in a very early stage, but this proof-of-concept study shows that we can use machine learning to connect the sequence of an antibody to its function," said Nicholas Wu, a professor of biochemistry at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign who led the research with biochemistry PhD student Yiquan Wang; and Meng Yuan, a staff scientist at Scripps Research in La Jolla, California. With enough data, scientists should be able to predict not only the virus an antibody will attack, but which features on the pathogen the antibody binds to, Wu said. For example, an antibody may attach to different parts of the spike protein on the SARS-CoV-2 virus.


Covid-19 news: Cognitive impairment equivalent to 20 years of ageing

New Scientist

Covid-19 can cause lasting cognitive and mental health issues, including brain fog, fatigue and even post-traumatic stress disorder. To better understand the scale of the problem, researchers at the University of Cambridge analysed 46 people who were hospitalised due to the infection between March and July 2020. The participants underwent cognitive tests on average six months after their initial illness. These results were compared against those of more than 66,000 people from the general population. Those hospitalised with covid-19 scored worse on verbal analogical reasoning tests, which assess an individual's ability to recognise relationships between ideas and think methodically. They also recorded slower processing speeds. Previous studies suggest glucose is less efficiently used by the part of the brain responsible for attention, complex problem-solving and working memory after covid-19. Scores and reaction speeds improved over time, however, any recovery was gradual at best, according to the researchers. This cognitive impairment probably has multiple causes, including inadequate blood supply to the brain, blood vessel blockage and microscopic bleeds caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus, as well as damage triggered by an overactive immune system, they added. "Around 40,000 people have been through intensive care with covid-19 in England alone and many more will have been very sick, but not admitted to hospital," Adam Hampshire at Imperial College London said in a statement. "This means there is a large number of people out there still experiencing problems with cognition many months later." The biological mechanism behind a rare and severe covid-19 response seen in some children may have been uncovered by researchers at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia. Doctors have so far been unable to identify why some children develop multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS) in response to covid-19, which can cause symptoms such as fever, abdominal pain and heart disease.

In 2019, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) formulated a plan for the integration of artificial intelligence with education, and suggested that AI has the potential to create a more equitable, efficient, and innovative educational system (1). Although this statement was made prior to Covid-19's rapid proliferation, it warrants renewed consideration in light of the calamitous effects the pandemic has had on the education system. The abrupt shift to remote learning and subsequent return to in-person instruction have revealed significant decreases in learning outcomes and readiness to meet academic standards (2); decreases that a return to normalcy has little hope of addressing. Now, if ever, is the time to look towards innovative means of enhancing education, and artificial intelligence could prove to be the change required to bring about meaningful academic growth. Recent studies indicate that in the United States, school closures and remote learning have resulted in significant decreases in educational outcomes for K-5 students that roughly equate to a five month deficit in math skills, and a four month deficit in reading comprehension (2).


AI in healthcare

#artificialintelligence

By 2030, AI will get to different wellsprings of information to uncover designs in sickness and help therapy and care. Medical care frameworks will actually want to anticipate a singular gamble of specific illnesses and recommend preventive measures. Simulated intelligence will assist with decreasing sitting tight times for patients and further develop proficiency in clinics and wellbeing frameworks. At this season 10 years earlier, focuses and expert's work environments would flood with incapacitated people fit to be seen; today, clinicians and patients move actually through the structure. Related care has moved toward a reality, driven by long periods of gigantic strain on overall clinical benefits systems without enough gifted clinical specialists to truly zero in on their rapidly creating and developing peoples and forward jumps in solid advancement enabling impacts, for instance, data science and man-made thinking (AI).

First, the IoT provides a platform that allows public-health agencies access to data for monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, the'Worldometer' provides a real-time update on the actual number of people known to have COVID-19 worldwide, including daily new cases of the disease, disease distribution by countries and severity of disease (recovered, critical condition or death) (https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/). Second, big data also provides opportunities for performing modeling studies of viral activity and for guiding individual country healthcare policymakers to enhance preparation for the outbreak. Using three global databases―the Official Aviation Guide, the location-based services of the Tencent (Shenzhen, China), and the Wuhan Municipal Transportation Management Bureau―Wu et al. performed a modeled study of'nowcasting' and forecasting COVID-19 disease activity within and outside China that could be used by the health authorities for public-health planning and control worldwide8. Similarly, using the WHO International Health Regulations, the State Parties Self-Assessment Annual Reporting Tool, Joint External Evaluation reports and the Infectious Disease Vulnerability Index, Gilbert et al. assessed the preparedness and vulnerability of African countries in battling against COVID-19; this would help raise awareness of the respective health authorities in Africa to better prepare for the viral outbreak9.
