Dr Mohammed Yaqub, Assistant Professor at Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI), the world’s first graduate-level, research-based Artificial Intelligence (AI) university, will discuss the critical role played by AI in the fight against COVID-19 and improving healthcare outcomes at a high-level session at GITEX Technology Week 2020.

Dr Yaqub is leading the talk, ‘How does AI Help Fight the COVID-19 Pandemic?’ on the first day of GITEX on December 6.

Dr Yaqub is also showing how AI helps detect, respond to and recover from the pandemic, as well as predict infection progress and facilitate healthcare solutions to tackle the pandemic. AI will be central to enabling improved healthcare outcomes from the novel Coronavirus and accelerated research to improve the understanding and treatment of COVID-19.

Dr Yaqub, who leads research in healthcare applications for AI at MBZUAI, is expected to speak at the GITEX Future Stars: AI Everything stand.

“AI has come to the fore in 2020 due to its successful application in combating the spread of the novel Coronavirus,” said Dr Yaqub. “From research into vaccines to faster diagnoses, AI-based technologies have elevated the healthcare, scientific and research sectors by providing new tools to augment current capabilities. This is not just helping in the fight against COVID-19, but also accelerating solutions in current and future healthcare problems.”
