Dr. Nischal Chandra discusses how Apollos University is using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to Deliver Business Continuity During Coronavirus/COVID-19 Pandemic
GREAT FALLS, MT, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Organizations are struggling to respond and stay connected during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Most organizations have depended upon having employees, clients, customers, students, etc. cluster together in one location. COVID-19 is showing the world that this is not always the best mode of operation. However, these traditional organizations are finding that they must quickly adapt to remote operations. This realization is proving to be a huge undertaking for most organizations.
Even simple tasks such as checking if employees are healthy and capable of performing the assigned jobs are turning out to be time-consuming for most traditional organizations. Added to this health checkup is the need to ensure all employees and students have the tools and infrastructure to accomplish their tasks. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Center for Artificial Intelligence Research at Apollos University’s Information Technology Department created an AI-based self-managing Cognitive Emergency Management System (CEMS) to address the risk to its human resources and operations – contributing to business continuity.
The CEMS has been outfitted with two immediate and urgent functions. The first function is to detect COVID-19 disease through a Machine Learning system trained to identify risk cases for the university’s global staff and faculty members. The second function utilizes a Reinforcement Learning system to monitor enterprise IT systems and provide strategic planning to the IT personnel on how to adapt/scale during increasing demands. As a result, the CEMS has enabled the organization with real-time ability to respond.
The Chief AI Officer and IT Department Chair, Dr. Nischal Chandra states, “the CEMS has been instrumental in ensuring business continuity during the COVID-19 pandemic and will be serving as the catalyst for digitizing/improving every workflow in the organization.”
