The deadliest contagious virus of our times, Novel Covid-19 Coronavirus, has taken the world by storm.

Amidst this storm, heroes are rising all over the world. The whole world now knows that this villain cannot be fought alone.

Perhaps our collective knowledge will be able to beat this microscopic foe.

n this tense situation, a ray of hope has come from the Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology (GIKI). A final year student of GIKi, Muhammad Aleem, claims he has come up with a plan of detecting Coronavirus with 96% accuracy. Aleem says it is possible through Artificial Intelligence (AI). Previously, some students from Habib University had also tried to create an App to control the virus.

Siraj Raval shows off examples of machine learning apps from his students.

If you’re wondering about my stance on the recent controversies around Siraj, I recorded a Data Point about that.

Machine Learning powers almost every internet service we use these days, but it’s rare to find a full pipeline example of machine learning being deployed in a web app. In this episode, I’d like to present 5 full-stack machine learning demos submitted as midterm projects from the students of my current course. The midterm assignment was to create a paid machine learning web app, and after receiving countless incredible submissions, I’ve decided to share my favorite 5 publicly. I was surprised by how many students in the course had never coded before and to see them building a full-stack web app in a few weeks was a very fulfilling experience. Use these examples as a template to help you ideate on potential business ideas to make a positive impact in the world using machine learning. And if you’d like, be sure to reach out and support each of the students I’ve demoed here today in any way can you offer. They’ve been working their butts off. Enjoy!
