HKBU develops novel AI technology to enhance COVID-19 alert system

Researchers at Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) have integrated artificial intelligence (AI) technology with BU-Trace, the COVID-19 alert system (the System) they have developed. This eases use of the System and enables health professionals to assess the risk of virus exposure accurately. When applied in taxis, the AI feature can automatically record when passengers leave. The enhanced system also shortens users’ check-in time at a venue to just one to two seconds by employing Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.

HKBU has implemented the System on its campus since October 2020 to enhance its COVID-19 risks alert capability. The System was developed by a research team led by Professor Xu Jianliang, Acting Associate Dean of Science (Research) and Professor of the Department of Computer Science at HKBU.
