TORONTO - October 5, 2020 - Datametrex AI Limited (TSXV: DM) (FSE: D4G) (OTC Pink: DTMXF) (the "Company" or "Datametrex") is pleased to announce the development of an advanced statistical model to assess the current state of the pandemic and to monitor COVID-19 hotspots using Artificial Intelligence ("AI") and Machine Learning ("ML").
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic's stranglehold on the world, leaders increasingly embraced advanced analytics and AI, for good reason. According to a 2018 study by the McKinsey Global Institute, entitled: Notes from the AI frontier: Applications and value of deep learning, these capabilities are estimated to have the potential to create between approximately $9.5 trillion and $15.4 trillion in annual global economic value.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread around the globe, the Company is further developing its Nexalogy AI to build automated tracking systems that will mine vast amounts of data using NexaIntelligence, from social media and traditional news, for signs of new COVID-19 outbreaks being discussed in real-time.
Secondly, the Company is developing an early alarm mapping system to keep watch for the pandemic using an advanced ML statistical model to monitor COVID-19 on the Lexical Map. This is developed using automatic text analysis that identifies with coloured clusters the sub-themes to understand COVID-19 noise versus signal quickly and certainly underscores the potential of AI and ML.
Predicting positive results based on scientific mapping brings new developments to treatment in which clusters are systematically screened using computer algorithms for tracking and tracing for viral testing protocols leading to any subsequent quarantining and healthcare that may well be required.
This new system will collect and analyze COVID-19 data from Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, blogs, web forums, online news sites, Google Alerts and RSS feeds.
"Our AI pandemic management and analytics platform supports the modelling and monitoring of COVID-19. By leveraging smartphones and other digital technology, we use our analytics to produce metrics that help governments and communities evaluate trends to enable strategic and efficient deployment of resources," said Marshall Gunter, CEO of the Company.
Datametrex AI Limited is a technology-focused with exposure to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Nexalogy (www.nexalogy.com).
Datametrex's mission is to provide tools that support companies in fulfilling their operational goals, including Health and Safety, with predictive and preventive technologies.
