As the COVID-1
The A.I. tool comes from a company called Avaamo. While Avaamo may not be a household name, you may have used one of its products. The company helps design and build conversation chatbots for hospitals, shops and other industries. When you browse a site with an Avaamo bot, it appears as a chat window and you can ask questions it will answer.
Avaamo followed the same approach with Project COVID. It is a chat chatbot that extracts information from the CDC, WHO, NIH and some other sources. You can ask a question like "How many people have recovered from the coronavirus", and it will retrieve the latest data and give you a short answer.
The tool is free to use, and Avaamo specified that governments and companies can immediately embed it on websites for free. It is also mobile-friendly and works from most smartphone browsers.
We would not fail to point out that it is not perfect. We activated the chatbot by typing: "Is Covid-19 like the flu?" That led to an unhelpful answer about coronavirus tracking. However, when we typed: & # 39; Is coronavirus like the flu? & # 39; the answer it gave was accurate and helpful.
And of course a chatbot is no substitute for a doctor. So you should not rely solely on it for your medical advice. But if you've tried to educate yourself about COVID-19 and found resources like the CDC hard to find, Project COVID can help.
You now have access to the chatbot on the Project COVID site.
