COVID-19 is swiftly spreading across the globe. The advanced preventive measures and medical system as well as the crisis management ability of Korea have garnered a lot of attention in the world. Also, a lot of research institutes and companies have been developing new technologies to deal with the COVID-19 spread. A domestic research institute has developed Photocatalytic Air Conditioning Filter which is an antibacterial item that can directly remove the source of infection floating in the air. The Photocatalytic Air Conditioning Filter can get rid of viruses by making use of the strong oxidizing power that is generated when photocatalyst reacts to light. Therefore, it can prevent airborne infection. Unmanned thermal camera is installed at the entrance of a domestic university building and it is operated for 24 hours a day. Aside from the unmanned monitoring for 24 hours, the system responds within 0.2 seconds after detecting abnormal temperature. Also, the AI system detects the signs of fever immediately and provides an urgent alarm service to the person who has fever as well as the manager who controls the system. And a domestic company has developed a 360-degree camera that can be worn like a necklace, as a solution for non-face-to-face remote medical treatment. As it is the only technology in the world that has been developed in Korea, about 30 thousand cameras have been provided to China's Wuhan city, where COVID-19 is believed to have originated. We introduce the ongoing development of related technologies which is expected to prevent the infection with COVID-19 as well as lead the innovation in a variety of industrial sectors.

Economic activities of citizens have decreased along with the continuing COVID-19 outbreak, and it has led to the stagnant economy of various local districts. A lot of local governments have released emergency support measures to stabilize the lives of local residents. A local library has provided an untact book lending service since March. Users can apply for the drive-through service on the phone in advance. And they should have a simple verification process at the entrance to the parking lot. And people can get the books they want only within 10 seconds, without the need to get out of the car. Also, the library has recently provided a variety of different measures including a walk-through service or a delivery service. Also, a local district has encouraged the local residents to plant the seedlings of the local flower farms. And there is also a bakery which provides flowers from the local flower farms aside from bread and beverages. It is to give support to the local flower farms which have suffered from the COVID-19 spread. It has become difficult to purchase face masks in the market because of the nationwide COVID-19 outbreak. And there is a volunteering group which has produced face masks by themselves in order to tackle the difficulties. A lot of renowned media outlets from all parts of the globe have visited the site. And the community spirit that has been strengthened to overcome the crisis, has received a lot of attention. We look into the continuing efforts made by the local districts and citizens who have raised the status of Korea by overcoming the COVID-19 which has spanned the globe.

A variety of AI, or artificial intelligence technologies have been applied to the medical sector. iMediSync has developed a diagnostic skill which can detect the possibility of dementia only within 10 minutes. The technology was developed by applying AI to brainwave analysis technology. iSyncBrain is a core technology developed by the company. It can analyze the brainwaves of human and detect the possibility of mild cognitive impairment, which is a previous stage of dementia. It enables more convenient screening test of dementia in comparison to the existing testing methods. The brainwave measuring equipment is put on the head. And a person who takes the test should wait for about two minutes with his eyes closed. The brainwave signals are recorded on the computer in real time. The collected data on brainwaves can be compared with the brainwaves of a healthy person based on the AI algorithm. It only takes about 10 minutes to diagnose the possibility of mild cognitive impairment, which is a previous stage of dementia. By promoting various researches on brain diseases, the company aims to become a global business that can provide an early diagnosis of dementia, ADHD and depression as well as the treatment solutions. We explore iMediSync, which has provided advanced solutions for the early diagnosis of dementia to the domestic and overseas medical sectors.
