AI To Predict Covid Patients At Dire Need For Ventilators. Photo by Mufid Majnun on Unsplash

US researchers have developed an online tool using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help medical staff quickly determine which Covid-19 patients will need help breathing with a ventilator. The team at Case Western Reserve University developed the tool, through analysis of CT scans from nearly 900 Covid-19 patients diagnosed in 2020, and is able to predict ventilator need with 84 per cent accuracy.

"That could be important for physicians as they plan how to care for a patient and, of course, for the patient and their family to know," said Anant Madabhushi, Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve.

"It could also be important for hospitals as they determine how many ventilators they'll need," he added.

Home Automation is a new-age solution to automate your home through furnishing automatic lights, automatic door locks, smart security cameras, automatic heating and cooling, etc.

Today the world is progressing towards a new era. An era that blends the skills of biological humanity with contrived technology to 'automate' the ecosystem. Ten years ago, no one could even imagine that one day we would drive a self-automated car or rely upon a proactive healthcare management system. But now, we are. These attainments are just a few specimens of Artificial Intelligence and one more benison of this Digital World is Home Automation System.

Home Automation is a new-age solution to automate your home through furnishing automatic lights, automatic door locks, smart security cameras, automatic heating and cooling, etc. As this generation fascinated with modern technology, the demand has started to reach the skies. Making innovative ideas practical for the long term, here are a few reasons you should get with this trend:

Home Automation makes you feel luxurious

The manned fighter aircraft is dead!

The Air Warfare Symposium, conducted by the US Air Force Association on 27 and 28 February, 2020, may go down in history as an event where history was foretold. It was here, on the morning of 28 February, 2020, that Elon Musk, the quintessential disruptor, set the cat among the pigeons. In a room overflowing with Air Force personnel, many fighter pilots among them, Musk famously predicted the end of the manned fighter aircraft.

Much consternation followed, and copious amounts of newsprint was invested in the counter-narrative that flowed, mainly from the US Air Force and its veterans. Notably, much of the criticism of Musk's proclamation was aimed at targeting him personally as a 'head-line grabber', rather than to disprove his assertion through solid logic and evidence. This is probably indicative of the fact that Musk's prediction may hold more than a modicum of truth.

Artificial Intelligence is capable of creating more life simplifying tools

Artificial intelligence (AI ) is one of those terms which always manage to be one of the trending topics. A majority of us think of AI as rocket science or robots ruling the world, which is shown in sci-fi movies. However, in real world it is a different story i.e., AI and humans go hand in hand. Everyone has a fear that AI will steal jobs but it can create more employment than it eliminates.

Artificial Intelligence is capable of creating more life simplifying tools which will in turn increase the employment rate and these simplifying tools aren't only helpful for people associated with tech, but such inventions are helpful for people in all genres. Therefore, while AI will be able to create new employment, it will also aid individuals.
