This app is created by Habib University students with the help of Artificial Intelligence .It will tell you in which country Corona virus is spreading in the world and what are the causes so that it can be taken accordingly. Students have developed this app to prevent the Corona virus born in Wuhan, China. Students hope to present this project at an international competition at the US University of Texas A&M.
The American University of Texas A&M has organized a contest called ‘Invent for the Planet’ in 48 universities around the world. In this competition, students are given 48 to 72 hours to propose solutions to 12 global problems. There are several teams from each university participating and three winning teams are selected.
Various teams from Habib University in Karachi also submitted their entries to participate in this global competition. The team that came in second has created an app called ‘World Against Corona’ to prevent the Corona virus.
The team comprised of six students – Irham Ishtiaq, Sara Mahmood, Maaz Arshad Shaheen and Mahin Anis – are affiliated to Habib University’s Computer Science Department, Ariba Rafiq, Communication and Design Department, and Syeda Fatima Hashmi from Social Development and Policy Development. The team developed the app within 48 to 72 hours, which will soon be available for use in clinics,hospitals,airports and other places acress Pakistan to prevent the Corona Virus.
What is the purpose of this app?
Habib University student Arham Ishtiaq said: “There are many institutions in the world currently collecting data about the Corona virus, but even with so much information, it has not yet been determined how the virus eventually spreads. Is spreading and what is being done to prevent it. Until now, various causes of the spread of the virus have been reported worldwide and not only are they increasing, but are also gradually changing. So far, more than 70,000 people have been infected with the virus. ”
‘Using Artificial Intelligence, our app will give you information about which country in the world is spreading the Corona virus and what are the causes so that it can be taken accordingly.
We want this app to let people around the world know what they care about in their city or area to prevent the virus.
How does this app work?
According to the data, this app is divided into two parts.
The first part of the app is based on a handy form that will be filled by airports, hospitals, research centers and other agencies.
This form will contain the basic information of the Corona virus patient to determine which symptoms are common in Corona virus patients in each city and each region.
“The second part of the app is based on a machine model that is related to artificial intelligence,” said Arham.This allows us to understand where the data that we have accumulated, where the Corona virus is spreading worldwide, and how it is spreading. Then this machine learning model will tell us through data and graphs what cities we need to take care of to prevent this virus.
Another member of the team, Syeda Fatima Hashmi, said: “The interesting thing about this app is that the data collected from around the world will be available on the app in a very general way. Whoever opens the app will first be told via animation how many cases have been reported in which part of the world and what were the common causes of the spread of the virus in this area.
With this information, people can immediately protect themselves and their loved ones from this virus.
