DeepMind, which is part of Googles Artificial Intelligence Solutions, is being used in conjugation with its Alpha Fold system to create effective treatments for the covid-19. Deep Mind intends to forecast the protein structures of the Cov-2 SARS virus that can cause Covid-19. With the successful implementation of the system, the company can make a pivotal contribution to the development of the right vaccine or treatment for the virus.
2. Wearable Tech
Veritas, which is Google’s sister company, is developing a wearable patch that patients can use to detect fever. The patch communicates with the mobile phone app that can diagnose whether the symptoms are of regular flu or covid019.
3. 3D Printing
3-D printing is one technology which is helping people create innovative solutions as the covid-19 pandemic has posed severe threat across the globe. The 3D printers have always helped designers and hobbyists create unique items; however, the technology is coming handy in the current situation.
People are making useful things like ear guard, which helped surgeons and medical staff avoid ear paid due to wearing masks the whole day. Companies are also using medical PPE for medical practitioners. The manufacturers of 3D printers like Presa Research etc. are making the face shields at a fast speed and have delivered more than 7000 masks.
Students are also creating masks and face shields using the 3D printers. Even though the gear is not FDA approved, it may come convenient in the hour.
4. Information Exchange
Google is using its technical capabilities to collaborate with the US government to create an educational website which can help provide the most pertinent information about COvid-19. The company is looking to develop the information about coronavirus pandemic at a central location from where people have access to all the official information without falling victim to misinformation.
5. Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is helping businesses and enterprises to stay connected in the crisis enabling people to share resources and make viable connectivity. Cloud computing is ensuring that businesses maintain continuity with access to information and software. Recently one of its kind private/Public consortia was framed by IBM and Department of energy in which the high-performance computing is brought for the norovirus fight.
The Healthcare industry is extensively using cloud technology to provide seamless medical services to millions of patients worldwide. Early digitization is helping health care institutes and hospitals to analyze relevant patient data and develop improved response systems.
It has also improved the telemedicine provision, which is great for the current situation.
6. Remote Working and Video Conferencing
Videoconferencing is at an all-time high in the current situation when employees are not able to visit their workplaces. The in-person meetings and conferences have moved to online platforms wherein people are connecting virtually. Zoom Videoconferencing, Teams, House party, and various other video conferencing platforms have enabled people to connect virtually and keep the business operations seamless.
