Researchers develop AI that can predict COVID-19 patient outcomes

How about technology that could predict outcomes amid the Coronavirus Pandemic?

That’s what a research team at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute recently published. A team there created an algorithm that uses artificial intelligence to predict outcomes of COVID-19 patients.

So far it has worked out.

“So we tried to use this algorithm to predict whether a patient will develop into a severe condition,” Pingkun Yan, an assistant professor of Biomedical Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute who led the team told Spectrum News. “And if that is the case, we can give them more virus supportive treatment to prevent that from happening.”

Testing of the algorithm is going to continue so that it can be implemented in general use down the road.
