Artificial technology is about to intervene with the current management of Coronavirus cases. From various sources. CAIAC (Collective and Augmented Intelligence Against COVID-19) has teamed up with minds from Harvard, Stanford, and the UN to bring the idea together.
The idea is to gather reliable data sources regarding Coronavirus - all information that is essential for its diagnosis, mitigation, treatment, and prevention - and make it accessible to authorities, medical frontliners, healthcare experts, researchers, and others who may need it.
Basically, the general idea is that experts will develop an algorithm that will utilize available data to construct viable solutions to problems, predict future anomalies, using analysis of patterns. Diagnostic test results can be stored for future use, patient information is used to detect hotspots.
AI tools are currently being developed in more than one research facility. Princeton is coming up with a diagnostic X-ray tool that operates in the same mechanism. X-ray results are stored, and the accumulated data is utilized for future analytical predictions.
The endpoint is that artificial technology will help in the management of the outbreak in ways that traditional data gathering cannot achieve. It will make the processes smoother in the aspect of data updates, disease management and prevention, contact tracing, and even monitoring of admitted patients.
In contact tracing, the system AI will generate a comprehensive outline of disease hotspots, as well as user demographic, basically simplify the information needed by authorities to modify their responses depending on the needs and the in accordance to the data given by the tool.
In these trying times, we may have to resort to additional technological assistance. With artificial intelligence and an efficient tool that integrates it, human efforts could be reduced and reverted to more direct patient interactions while other tasks are being carried out by AI. The pandemic has been going on for a long while now, and manpower is falling short in some areas. There is no time more optimal than now to integrate AI in our endeavors to end this pandemic once and for all.
