Chinese technology colossus Alibaba has produced an artificial intelligence (AI) model to check up on the Coronavirus. The patient only needs to complete a chest CT scan, and a special algorithm in 20 seconds will determine the presence of the virus with an accuracy of 96%. TheNextWeb reports this with reference to the Nikkei Asian Review report.
The system has been trained on tomography and information from 5k verified Covid-19 cases and has now been examined in clinics across China. Alibaba AI is currently used by at least 100 medical facilities.
