Americans taught the voice assistant to diagnose COVID-19
The coronavirus pandemic continues to march across the planet. Everything related to the virus is often accompanied by a mass of fakes, misinformation, and confusion. It is not always possible to obtain accurate data in such an environment.
At the same time, the majority of the population is interested in the problem of protection against infection. It is not enough to get information for this, it is best to visit a medical institution, but now this can cause certain problems.
In this regard, Yabloko decided to be proactive and contribute to the fight against coronavirus. Apple is considering equipping Siri with the ability to diagnose COVID-19.
This was recently reported by one of the online sources. The fact is that a runny nose, cough, or breathing problems are not always signs of this dangerous disease. The disease often begins almost asymptomatic.
To be able to at least formally define the symptoms of COVID-19, users of Apple mobile devices can now do so by asking for help from a voice assistant.
For this, a person must directly ask Siri whether he is infected with the coronavirus or not. Artificial intelligence will ask him a series of questions, the formation of which depends on each answer to the previous one. Among them, those associated with the symptoms of the disease and their severity dominate. Also, the voice assistant will clarify the geography of the user's recent trips.
According to the results of the survey, the system may recommend that you immediately consult a doctor. In a different scenario, Siri will direct users to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website or Apple's App Store, where the company offers tips and reminders on what to do if any.
This functionality is developed in accordance with the latest information on COVID-19 and the results of the fight against it. It takes into account data obtained in the United States, so the new program will work only in that country.
