A number of security officers in China can be seen donning AI-powered smart glasses to detect individuals with a fever, which is one of the key indications of coronavirus along with dry cough. The spectacles use a thermal imaging camera to ascertain the individual’s temperature from upto one metre away.
The South China Morning Post reports that the Artificial Intelligence powered glasses were developed by startup Rokid, which asserts each set can inspect the fever of more than a few hundred people in only 2 minutes.
When the devices recognize somebody with a temperature, they direct a pre-programmed alert to staff and register a digital record.
The glasses are being put on by security guards in Hongyuan Park, which is located in Hangzhou, the capital of China’s Zhejiang province. Notably, the aforementioned park is one of the budding public places in China to open again as new infections started to decline.
Science Magazine mentions that 8 travelers who lately travelled from Italy to Shanghai tested positive for corona without getting caught by airport screeners.
An epidemiologist at the University of Hong Kong, Ben Cowling mentioned,
“Ultimately, measures aimed at catching infections in travelers will only delay a local epidemic and not prevent it.”
