Covid-19: AI monitor to ensure proper hand washing developed by Japan’s Fujitsu


Team Udayavani, Jun 20, 2020, 5:04 PM IST

Japanese IT firm Fujitsu has developed an artificial intelligence monitor which ensures healthcare, hotel and food industry workers wash hands properly

The AI can recognise complex hand movements and can even detect when people aren’t using soap

Genta Suzuki, a senior researcher at the Japanese Information Technology company, said, “Food industry officials and those involved in coronavirus-related business who have seen it are eager to use it, and we have had people inquiring about price”

AI checks whether people complete a Japanese health ministry six-step hand washing procedure that like guidelines issued by the WHO asks people to clean their palms, wash their thumbs, between fingers and around their wrists, and scrub their fingernails.

In order to train the machine learning AI, developers created 2,000 handwashing patterns using different soaps and washbasins.
