AI to Fight and Manage COVID-19

We are experiencing a unique approach in combating COVID-19 through the use of AI.

An AI company warned us of the threat even several days before any public warnings were made and was able to correctly predict how the virus would spread. We were able to count on more monitoring, thanks to AI solutions specifically created to target the virus. Researchers are working to develop an AI platform that could help policymakers calibrate virus response. In China, we had drones working in various manners, from delivering food and medical supplies to monitoring the lockdown of the community. Robots were used to treat patients and disinfect surfaces. Most impressively, let’s not forget, China was able to build two hospitals in just over a week.
