My E.G. Services Bhd announced that it has developed an Artificial Intelligence-powered coronavirus risk profiling system. The company states that it is offering the system to the governments of Malaysia and the Philippines.
MyEG has developed this innovation in a partnership with China’s Phoenix Travel Worldwide Co. for the Malaysian government’s foregin visa system (VLN) and the Integrated Immigration System (IIS). According to the company, the system analyses a vast number of available data points, including visitors’ previous known whereabouts as well as heart rate and blood pressure readings crossed-referenced against public transportation ridership and exposure to locations with incidences of infections.
Additionally, MyEG states that the system provides ongoing engagement with visitors within the country. If any anomalies are detected, health authorities will be alerted in order to take immediate measures such as evacuation or quarantine of the individual.
The company points out that implementing travel restrictions on visitors originating from Wuhan and Wenzhou can be challenging and inaccurate if Governments rely merely on an individual’s passport information. MyEG explains that the system uses historical geolocation information combined with other relevant parameters, which creates a health risk profile on individual travelers.
This would then allow authorities to conduct more detailed assessment on potential high health risk visitors. The company adds that the data analytics algorithm constantly evolves as it learns more about the virus each passing day.
