Israel’s Sheba Medical Center has named Intel’s Analytics AI group as the winner of its “Corona Data Challenge” in a search for Covid-19 solutions using artificial intelligence. The group, which is part of its IT Data and AI Division, competed against 30 other teams across a three-month timeframe.

During the competition, AI researchers received anonymous data that had been extracted from hundreds of Covid-19 patients. This included medical backgrounds, test results, and medications. Intel’s team then developed a system to help predict which patients would experience life-threatening reactions and would ultimately require ventilators.
