This AI tool could detect dengue outbreaks 3 months in advance


 An artificial intelligence system that claims to predict dengue outbreaks up to three months in advance has been rolled out in a Malaysian state — with several cities across Asia and Latin America doing pilot trials. The machine-learning system harnesses hundreds of parameters ranging from wind speed to local roof architecture to try and predict where the next outbreak will be. It then advises responders on the intervention likely to be most effective in that particular area, such as fogging or removing water pools. Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral infection that has grown rapidly in recent decades, with half the…
