Can India finally go for mass testing for Coronavirus? Report shows Artificial Intelligence can improve Contact Tracing!


India is a country with a huge population, amounting to about 1.5 billion people. The largest democracy in the world is currently fighting the Coronavirus in close quarters. Mass testing to identify the virus is the talk of the town now. But, it is not that easy to arrange for mass testing. Because of the high population, the population density in each area is also very high. Testing such high numbers is not an easy task. A huge amount of trained manpower is required.

But, hopefully, Artificial Intelligence can help fill in the gaps. AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria says, “We will have technologies which will produce fast results, very soon. AI will help us go in the right direction.” But mass testing should be done in a wise manner.

Balwinder Arora, Medical head at Safardarjung Hospital says, “Mass screening will sure help us identify COVID-19 patients much faster. On identification, they can all be quarantined separately.”

How will AI detect Coronavirus?

Currently, the antibody testing kits are the only way to detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19. But soon we will have toolkits that will help detect Coronavirus in a large population. The new technologies will use Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to make mass testing possible.

AI will help support in tracking down Coronavirus positive cases, says Bikas Jha, Head of RealNetworks Pvt. Limited. Along with Artificial Intelligence, facial recognition and temperature measuring cameras will help detect COVID-19. The cameras will help detect people with fever in real-time. This will help accelerate the process of mass testing.

However, for infection spreading patterns, Machine Learning along with deep learning will help arrive at the correct algorithm. Due to the availability of enough testing data, applying ML will be easy. The places where human footfall is large will be under strict surveillance by these AI cameras.

    I reached out several months ago about how explainer videos and the unique issues they solve.

    My team has created thousands of marketing videos including dozens in your field.

    As you know, Google is constantly changing its SEO algorithm. The only thing that has remained consistent is that adding an explainer video increases website rank and most importantly keeps customers on your page for longer, increasing conversions ratios.

    Simplify your pitch, increase website traffic, and close more business.

    Should I send over some industry-specific samples?
