How digital infrastructure can help us through the COVID-19 crisis

An important aspect of the response to the coronavirus outbreak has been to monitor its spread, in which computer engineers have played an important role by developing digital platforms to collect accurate and up-to-date data.
This has set in relief the need for strong engineering capacities in order for public authorities to effectively manage the outbreak consequences. The World Economic Forum has synthesized the technological needs and options at disposal:

CT+AI system can quickly screen for COVID-19

The CT+AI system (Computerized Tomography and Artificial Intelligence) recognizes the characteristics of COVID-19 infection to the patient’s lung by deep learning. This learned system could then perform like an experienced doctor in image recognition of the COVID-19 infected lung, and much quicker.
This system has already been used in more than 100 hospitals in China and in many countries outside of China.
