At the beginning of 2020, the COVID-19 epidemic suddenly assailed us and put enormous pressure on medical institutions and doctors. The medical artificial intelligence team at Alibaba’s Damo Institute has quickly and efficiently developed an artificial intelligence-assisted diagnosis system for COVID-19 pneumonia scanning, which can accurately diagnose suspected cases in 20 seconds, with an accuracy rate of over 96%.

The system is now used in more than 600 hospitals in China, where it has analyzed more than 800,000 cases, greatly improving treatment efficiency and relieving the burden on doctors.

In 2016, Hangzhou took the “urban brain” initiative and continued to explore building a smart city with big data, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and other means.

At the onset of the epidemic, the “urban brain” of Hangzhou quickly developed and launched the “COVID-19 epidemic trend awareness scenario”, which can accurately and quickly locate relevant cases and notify immediately local authorities for management.
