We are in the middle of a global pandemic due to the rapid spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Countless people across the globe are dealing with the stress and pressures of fighting the spread of the dangerous virus. Many countries have begun to shut off their borders in an attempt to stop any infected outsiders from entering their land. This is one effective way to stop the spread, but how else can border patrol employees, as well as government and law officials, use artificial intelligence and security technologies to help? Read on to learn how countries can use both forms of technology to their advantage to keep track of and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Artificial Intelligence Can Help Predict the Spread of Epidemics
Artificial intelligence, or A.I., can warn us about the upcoming epidemic and give us plenty of time to prepare. Certain artificial intelligence databases can use A.I. based algorithms, machine learning, and natural-language processing to help analyze data from a multitude of sources and track over hundreds of infectious diseases. This can help governments predict where virus outbreaks can spread by analyzing traveler itineraries and flight paths. Shortly, artificial intelligence can also use social media to help predict human behavior and possible outbreaks.
Artificial Intelligence can Assist Border Patrol
Artificial intelligence can also directly help security technology solution industries. Or countries that have closed borders, or strictly enforced borders that only allow essential vehicles and cargo ships, A.I. can help. For countries that are allowing shipments in for essentials, like food, hospital equipment, etc., They need to make sure that the vehicles or ships crossing into their borders are legitimate and carrying the right cargo. By using artificial intelligence-based vehicle and security technologies, employees on the border can identify the vehicles, as well as the drivers, to ensure that they are legitimate. This will help countries verify the vehicles entering their country are safe, secure, and carrying the proper essential materials needed to help hospitals test and treat patients who are fighting against the virus.
Artificial Intelligence and security technologies alike can help out in the spread of this virus, but to do so, we must all work together. Gatekeeper Security has several useful pieces of technology that many industries can implement during these trying times.
