Machine learning methods like convolutional neural networks can help in identifying the coronavirus from the CT scans and chest X-rays of patients. Alibaba company has built a deep learning model with an accuracy of 96 percent to find the coronavirus from CT scans. There are other companies like Ping also helping hospitals to identify coronavirus using Machine Learning with an accuracy of more than 90 percent. These models show results within 15 seconds and doctors take 15 minutes for the same.
