TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Deputy Minister of Communications and Information Technology (ICT) for Innovation and Technology Affairs Seyed Sattar Hashemi underlined his country’s high position in the world and development in production of artificial intelligence.
“Based on reports by creditable sources, Iran ranks between 7 to 15, considering production of artificial intelligence and university graduates in this field,” Hashemi told FNA on Monday.
He also expressed pleasure that a large number of researchers and university professors in the field of artificial intelligence are living in Iran.
Head of Coronavirus Management Center in Tehran Alireza Zali said in April that Iranian researchers have launched a new system based on artificial intelligence which can diagnose infection to COVID-19 virus in patients without access to a specialized physician.
“The system is used in regions where there is no (specialized) doctor or radiologist and it gives precise consultations to the patient by using his/her CT Scan image and it estimates the volume of pulmonary lesion,” Zali said.
He added that the system has been developed by using artificial intelligence and evaluates and forecasts future conditions.
