Intel and the Intel Foundation have announced a $50 million global initiative to put technology to work toward understanding and fighting the coronavirus.
The initiative is supporting measures to innovate in areas like employing artificial intelligence (AI) technology to use CT scans to detect coronavirus infections and virtual technology to monitor patients and protect medical workers.
Funding will go to accelerate diagnosis, treatment and vaccine development through technologies like AI, high-performance computing and edge-to-cloud service delivery, company officials said. It also will expand online learning access for students and teachers worldwide.
