This Australian study compares the accuracy of monitoring personal protective equipment (PPE) donning and doffing between an artificial intelligent (AI) machine collaborating with a remote buddy support system and an onsite buddy.
The researchers conducted a pilot simulation study with 30 procedural scenarios (15 donning and 15 doffing) and assessed 195 steps.
Overall accuracy of PPE monitoring with the human-AI system was 100%, and the overall accuracy with the onsite buddy was 99%.
The AI machine was able to perform autonomously, without any rectification from the remote buddy in 173 (89%) of 195 steps, and it identified 67.3% of all errors independently.
The findings provide preliminary evidence that a human-AI machine system may be able to substitute or enhance an onsite buddy performing monitoring of PPE donning and doffing, the researchers say.Read More >>
