AI-Powered Symptom Screening Technology to Help Fight Spread of COVID Virus in Canada

Today’s shopping trip is not the same trip it was just six months ago. It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking about visiting the local grocery store, a shopping centre or your favourite independent bookstore, the general look and feel of the trip has changed. It’s become altered. Or, to borrow a buzzword most often used to describe sudden change within the industry, much about the physical retail experience has been disrupted. Only this time, the disruption has not come as the result of a new channel through which to sell product or the introduction of an alternate method of payment. And its impact, as evidenced by multiple store closures throughout the country, has been profound and could prove to linger longer than we’d all prefer.

The disruption this time around is, of course, that caused by the implications surrounding the COVID-19 global pandemic. The virus will forever be linked to the year 2020 and remembered for a lifetime by those unfortunate enough to have lived through it. It’s forced the shutdown of physical spaces the world over, prohibited the gathering of crowds, and has forced us all to live and interact with one another differently. No matter how you look at our current situation, the change we’ve all been subjected to has been immense. Despite all of this, however, as communities and businesses continue to open and adapt to a new normal, the need in people to enjoy tactile experiences, to satisfy their appetites as social creatures, persists. The only question for retailers going forward is: how safe and comfortable can they make their in-store experience for visitors? Not surprisingly, a good portion of the answer could lie in the promise of artificial intelligence technology.

GTA company creates screening stations that can detect COVID-19 symptoms

Much like we go through metal detectors at the airport, we could soon be going through COVID-19 screening devices before we head into a store, pharmacy, school, or restaurant.

Some companies in the GTA are creating such devices that are already in use in Canada.

Juiceworks’ COVID-19 Safe Entry Solutions are powered by Predictmedix COVID-19 mass screening AI technology.

The stations use multispectral cameras to screen people for symptoms of COVID-19 such as cough, fever exhaustion, congestion, sweat gland activation, eye, redness and headache.

Predictmedix’s Dr.Rahul Kushwah says it’s fast and easy.

“You approach the module, remove any hats or glasses, look at the multi sectional camera, and within a fraction of a second  a red or green light will display the results” said Dr. Kushwah.

The data gathered is analyzed instantly by medial artificial intelligence and a red light indicates if the person is at a higher likelihood of having COVID-19 or influenza.

At that point the establishment will have protocol in place that could include a more rigorous secondary screening,  or denial of entry to that person.

The stations are already in use at the Flow Water facility in Ontario, A Juiceworks production facility, and a 24-hour pharmacy in Montreal.

“What we’ve been working on is being able to deploy these in any industry,” said Juiceworks Founder Jonathan Auger. “Whether it’s an institutional setting like a school, long-term care facility or a hospital.”

Augers says they would also work in commercial facilities such as shopping malls.

The stations have an upfront cost for the hardware, assembly and installation and ongoing costs vary based on how much traffic they encounter.

The stations can also be adjusted to detect impairment by drugs or alcohol.
