Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has developed a model that predicts the progression of the medical status of COVID-19 patients with artificial intelligence (AI), big data, and machine learning technologies.
The model was built using data from the Sheba Medical Centre. The predictive capabilities can alert medical staff on the possible deterioration in the patient’s condition, thus enhancing patient care and flagging the cases with higher chances of medical escalation and significantly improving the patient outcome. The model was developed by researchers and engineers at IAI’s Innovation Centre in the company’s systems missiles and space group.
Dr. Einat Klein, chief innovation engineer at IAI’s Systems Missile and Space Group, said: “IAI makes extensive use of tools such as machine learning, big data and AI as part of its routine operations. The innovation team of our group, which specialises in missiles and satellites, has leveraged its know-how experience to help medical staffs predict patients’ conditions. In this way, physicians can provide better treatment to COVID-19 patients at the hospital. IAI joined the battle against COVID-19 with multiple technologies developed over the past few weeks. These technologies help the medical professionals, the patients, and the hospitals. We plan to continue helping the healthcare system in line with the changing needs.”
