Alibaba Cloud, DAMO Academy and DingTalk have joined forces to launch a series of AI technologies and cloud-based solutions to support companies and organizations worldwide in the fight against Covid-19.

These solutions were developed by Alibaba Cloud using insights and experience accumulated during the early stages of the coronavirus outbreak. The new tech offerings are designed to help business decision-makers, researchers and medical practitioners address challenges across several major areas. These include:

Knowledge Sharing and Peer Communication

The platform is already being used by members of the First Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine. Earlier this week, staff from the hospital published the Covid-19 Prevention and Treatment Handbook, which offers key learnings from their experience on the frontlines of combating the disease. By using the platform, staff from the hospital can further share their knowledge and experience with global peers.

Epidemic Prediction

Fast-Track Diagnosis

Anther innovation by DAMO Academy is an AI-enabled CT-imaging system that can diagnose Covid-19 in 20 seconds with 96% accuracy. The system uses deep learning to study patterns of infection based on data and CT chest scans from thousands of coronavirus-related cases. This system is currently serving as an analytical, second opinion for doctors in more than 160 hospitals in China.

Accelerated Drug Development

Some of these solutions offer free trials for qualifying organizations.

Since the coronavirus outbreak, Alibaba Cloud has provided infrastructural and technical support to businesses and organizations in areas such as online retail, online learning, medical research and consultation.

While continuing to wage war against the worldwide outbreak, Alibaba Cloud will play its part and will do all it can to help others in their battles with the coronavirus. Learn how we can support your business continuity at
