Artificial intelligence for COVID-19: A Short Article
Keywords:COVID-19, Artificial intelligence, China, pandemic, Machine learning, Coronavirus disease
The COVID-19 virus, which began at the end of 2019 in China and spread rapidly and turned into a significant epidemic worldwide, has posed a severe threat to public health. Affected persons may develop an asymptomatic or mild illness or may experience severe consequences, up to acute respiratory failure requiring the support of healthcare workers. In this article, the authors decided to highlight artificial intelligence techniques by identifying the most influential platforms and applications that have been used to track and control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Fifteen tools utilised in the United States, Canada, South Korea, China, Turkey, Iraq, Germany, India, and Netherlands are organised in one table. This article found the significance of artificial intelligence and its ability to combat and control epidemics.
