1.2M confirmed Covid-19 cases have been recorded in Hong Kong at the time of writing. ImageDeep was one of the first Hong Kong based companies to respond to the challenges of keeping students and teachers safe at the beginning of the pandemic, where monitoring body temperatures and mask-wearing were extremely slow and labour-intensive.
Harrow International School
Located in a magnificent crescent-shaped building with custom-built facilities near the Gold Coast Tuen Mun, Harrow International School Hong Kong is the first and only British international boarding and day school in Hong Kong. The School integrates elements of educational philosophy, practice and traditions from Harrow School in England into the diverse international community of Hong Kong to provide a highly distinctive education.
Our Problem in Technology
At the start of the pandemic, Harrow school was faced with the challenge of using hand-held temperature sensors for an influx of over hundred students every morning. Over 20 staff were required to start work earlier, it was a very inefficient process and also risky for cross contamination for everyone.
Solutions that Are Our Magnum Opus
At the start of the pandemic, it was a labor intensive process to use hand-held temperature scanners for over a thousand students. Our AI fever and mask detection system scans 16 students per second with 99.9% accuracy.
Our AI engine is a real time automated system which does not require training or manned. It has significantly reduced the additional staff costs in the morning registration and reduced the risk of Covid-contamination thereby reducing sick leave costs.
ImageDeep pioneered this “All In One system” at the start of the covid pandemic, which sends instantaneous alerts to the supervisor when fever and/or no mask-wearing is detected. No data is held to protect everyone’s privacy.
