Abstract:

The international community and the world as a whole are suffering from the phenomenon of the spreading epidemic of the Crohna virus known as Covid 19, which claimed the lives of more than (200) thousand people around the world, Since the outbreak of the virus began and spread widely in the world, the competition began between students and scientists to carry out research and innovations in the field of artificial intelligence technology in support of public health devices with limited capabilities and the search for a vaccine to limit the spread of the virus.

In this context, some countries in the world have turned to the use of artificial intelligence technology in the health field to counter the spread of Covid 19,

The role of artificial intelligence technology, and the most prominent of which is the use of a robot in the detection of patients similar to their infection and dealing with people in order to avoid transmission of infection, in addition to communication between the patient and his family, as well as educating people to adhere to instructions and stay in their homes.

an introduction:

With the increasing spread of the Corona virus known as Covid 19, some countries have turned to the use of artificial intelligence technology as part of their measures to address the spread of the Corona virus.

In this context, the policemen in the Gulf countries started using smart helmets that enable them to measure the temperature of hundreds of people every minute and from five meters away ([1]).

The Director-General of the World Health Organization ‘Tedros Adhanum Gebresus’ says that the epidemic has claimed the lives of more than 180,000 people in the world since its appearance in December in China, It also takes a long time to get rid of it, as most countries are in the early stages of tackling it.

It also takes a long time to get rid of it, as most countries are in the early stages of tackling it, And they neglected the role of fine mist drops ([2]).

The concept of artificial intelligence:

Is to make the computer perform the work that humans do in a way that is less than them ([3]),It is the use of machine programming to solve real problems ([4]).

And artificial intelligence aims to give machines the capacity of Makkah to enable them to simulate the capabilities of logical thinking, it is the science of engineering the manufacture of smart machines ([5]).

These are applications that help to recognize and know data and information in various magazines ([6]).

From the perspective of using artificial intelligence technology to combat the new Corona virus, KC revealed Weerapol ‘from China reported the development of helmets that can monitor temperature to detect suspected cronovirus infection used in Europe and the Middle East.

In some Gulf countries, the police forces have used smart helmets that can measure the temperature of 200 people five meters away every minute, Where the helmet issues an alarm if someone spotted a fever ([7]).

Artificial intelligence and helping the scientific community to detect the virus:

In Britain, the Allen Institute of Artificial Intelligence has developed a high-tech database to help the scientific community learn more about the virus providing answers to important questions about Covid-19, In cooperation with Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook and Apple, and several research groups, The database forms a set of machine-readable reports, and includes 44,000 reports for the global scientific research community to use ([8]).

Artificial intelligence and the search for a vaccine to reduce the spread of the Corona virus:

Private sector companies have tended to use artificial intelligence to treat data available to the public to know the possibility of treating the disease with an existing drug before the development of the vaccine, This is done by harnessing algorithms to find molecules that may be a way to develop the drug before the end of the year, The goal is to design a broad-spectrum antiviral drug for use in facing future corona viruses ([9]).

Artificial intelligence and warning of future epidemics:

Global artificial intelligence company Blooddot tends to use algorithms, machine learning and natural language processing to analyze information from several sources to track more than a hundred infectious diseases, The company also sent a warning to its customers at the end of December to avoid Wuhan, And that is before the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and WHO announced the epidemic ([10]).

Robotics and service delivery for Crohn’s patients:

In China, Bodo Technology has designed and developed a health robot to use it to tackle the spread of the Crohna virus.

In the same context, the Chinese hospital administrators resorted to using robots to provide services to patients with coronavirus, And that is by wandering in the sick rooms to provide them with food, without any direct contact with the nurses for fear that the disease will spread to them.

After the robot arrives at the room door, it automatically calls the patient’s name, telling him that his “meal is ready” at that time, and then the patient goes out to meet the robot, where he picks up his meal, Then he clicks ‘FINISH’ directly after that, Then the robot moves to the next room to do the same task, in addition to receiving all the oral message calling them not to friction or touching the robot, for fear of transmission, and then wishes them a speedy recovery ([11]).

In Tunisia, the Ministry of Communication Technology and Digital Transformation organized a virtual exhibition of science, technology and creativity under the slogan ‘Made in Tunisia’, This is to take advantage of the use of artificial intelligence technology to combat the Covid 19 pandemic ([12]),With the spread of the Corona virus in Tunisia, the Ministry of the Interior launched a report to urge Tunisians who violate the instructions for complete closure in the country to stay in their homes and not leave except in extreme cases.

The maker of the robot “Innova” is developing another robot that facilitates the process of communication between the patient and members of his family, The Ministry of Health has also adopted an application that enables it to count and link the number of recovery beds available in all hospitals, to control them, and to distribute patients to them ([13]).

Doctor Jalila bin Khalil, assistant head of the resuscitation department at the main hospital for treating Covid-19 disease, stresses, “We must search all the way out” of the crisis.
