AI to be used to fight against COVID-19

BSS, Dhaka

With a view to help government in finding way out from the deadly COVID-19 pandemic in the country, mobile phone operator Robi has deployed artificial intelligence (AI) powered decision support solution to analyze risk and movement of potential carriers of coronavirus.

Getting prediction using the solution, government can easily determine which areas should be lockdown stringently along with halting possible routes of corona contagion by potential carriers. But, the process needs information from people proactively.

The AI powered data analytics solution was the outcome of extensive collaboration among the ICT Division, a2i and the Ministry of Health with the initiative of Robi which was disclosed at a digital press conference yesterday.

To expedite the process, meanwhile, a text message from government is being sent to all mobile phone users seeking health related information to determine potential carriers of coronavirus.

All 16.62 crore mobile phone users in the country will get the SMS where they will be asked to make a call to *3332# free of cost to provide health information by self-reporting method.

Officials familiar with the process said during the 90-second call users will be asked five questions such as age, whether they have breathing problems, fever or cough, come in contact with any recent returnee from abroad and come close to any COVID-19 infected people.

Speaking about the process, State Minister for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak, MP said the analysis and AI powered solution would help government to set next course of action in fighting against COVID-19 pandemic.
