Artificial Intelligence are used as virtual assistants ,e.g. “Alexa” from Amazon and in their ability to spot spam in emails (Gmail) by looking for patterns that signal untrustworthy source(s). These examples both use machine learning.
Another exciting way AI helps in innovation is that AI-enabled machine vision systems are used in fast-forwarding smart manufacturing.
AI are used in healthcare which due to the Covid-19 pandemic are currently being over-stretched. These virtual assistants can answer questions, provide updates, check for symptoms, and advise patients on where to go for a screening or to go for home-isolation.
AI is used in China to help keep people safe under the pandemic. An example is in the used of vision-guided robots used in hospitals in China to enforce social distancing rules/regulations. and to keep sick individuals away from others so as to curtail the spread of the virus.
The language processing features of A.I.can potentially and significantly reduce urgent hospital visits, as well as reduce anxiety by providing factual and up-to-date information on the Corono virus.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of drones are becoming increasingly useful. They are used for tracking people not wearing face-masks in public spaces, in deploying medical samples to a particular area. In the advanced countres, Intelligent robots are also having a positive impact in sterilizing isolation centres or islolation units in hospitals and also in delivering food and other essentials services to those who are under quarantine.
