COVID-19 and Artificial Intelligence

COVID-19 and Artificial Intelligence

Analytics Director Misti Paul takes a look at how organisations worldwide are employing AI to try and combat the virus.

As COVID-19 continues to spread all over the world, threatening to bring healthcare systems to their knees, there are now over 1.2 million cases reported worldwide and sadly over 70,000 deaths. At Research Partnership, we wanted to take a look at how organisations worldwide are employing AI to try and combat the Coronavirus: Baidu’s AI Team Open Sources LinearFold: The AI team at Baidu has released a tool, LinearFold, which reduces 2019-nCoV prediction time from 55 minutes to 27 seconds. This reduction in prediction time is crucial for understanding the virus and accelerate drug discovery. BlueDot Surveillance: A Toronto-based health surveillance company, BlueDot, is working towards making predictions on the spread of COVID-19 by gathering disease data from myriad online sources. Earlier last month they used airline flight information to make predictions about where infectious diseases may appear next, since air travel is a common vector in communicable diseases. AliBaba’s AI system: Alibaba’s Jack Ma claimed that its new AI system can detect coronavirus in CT scans of patients’ chests with 96% accuracy against viral pneumonia cases. In March, Alibaba sent their first consignment of 500,000 testing kits and 1 million masks to the US and consignments of supplies to…

3 trends the healthcare market research industry should watch out for over the next decade

As we head into the 2020s, Associate Director Ellie Forde considers the key trends that might impact healthcare over the next 10 years and the possible impacts on market research.

My colleague Rachel Howard wrote a blog at the end of last year reviewing her predictions in 2010 for the coming decade. As we head into the 2020s, I thought it might be timely to consider the key trends that might impact healthcare over the next 10 years. With technology advancing at an ever-increasing pace, these may be many, but I want to focus on what I believe are three of the big ‘watch outs’, and those I am personally excited about.

“Alexa, process this data for me” 3 ways the AI evolution is redefining how we collect market insights

“Alexa, process this data for me” 3 ways the AI evolution is redefining how we collect market insights

In this article first published in PME magazine, Marketing Manager Harrison Gaiger outlines the three ways AI is redefining how we collect market insights.

Amazon’s digital voice assistant Alexa is much more than just a convenient tool for setting reminders, streaming music and controlling the lights in our homes. It is a very real application of Artificial Intelligence (AI), a technology that has fast become an integral part of our daily lives. With all of the hype surrounding the more attention-grabbing applications of AI such as self-driving cars and super human-like robots - which most commentators say will be commonplace soon, it can often be difficult to appreciate just how much AI affects what we’re doing right now. We have all become so accustomed to AI without even realising it e.g., the autocorrect function on our smartphones and the automatic tagging of friends in our Facebook photos are both powered by AI.
