The deadly virus COVID-19 has heavily impacted all countries and brought a dramatic loss of human life. It is an unprecedented scenario and poses an extreme challenge to the healthcare sector. The disruption to society and the economy is devastating, causing millions of people to live in poverty. Most citizens live in exceptional hardship and are exposed to the contagious virus while being vulnerable due to the inaccessibility of quality healthcare services. This study introduces ubiquitous computing as a state-of-The-Art method to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and spare more ICU beds for those truly needed. Ubiquitous computing offers a great solution with the concept of being accessible anywhere and anytime. As COVID-19 is highly complicated and unpredictable, people infected with COVID-19 may be unaware and still live on with their life. This resulted in the spread of COVID-19 being uncontrollable. Therefore, it is essential to identify the COVID-19 infection early, not only because of the mitigation of spread but also for optimal treatment. This way, the concept of wearable sensors to collect health information and use it as an input to feed into machine learning to determine COVID-19 infection or COVID-19 status monitoring is introduced in this study. © 2023 IEEE.

This research proposes a computer vision-based solutions to identify whether a patient is covid19/normal/Pneumonia infected with comparable or better state-of-The-Art accuracy. Proposed solution is based on deep learning technique CNN (Convolutional Neural networks) with multiple approaches to cover all open issues. First approach is based on CNN models based on pre-Trained models;second approach is to create CNN model from scratch. Experimentation and evaluation of multiple approaches helps in covering all open points and gaps left unattended in related work performed to solve this problem. Based on the experimentation results of both the approaches and study of related work done by other researchers, Both the approaches are equally effective can be recommended for multi-class classification of lung disease. © 2023 IEEE.

COVID-19 crisis has led to an outburst of information that needs to be organized, validated, and made available to the seekers. Despite the rapid growth and success of BERT models in the last 3 years, COVID QA is a difficult task due to the lack of applicable datasets and a relevant language representation. Therefore, this study proposes a transformer-based Question Answering (QA) model for COVID-19 questions from the biomedical domain. Further, explored several datasets, and models required for question type prediction, no-Answer prediction, and answer extraction and transfer learning strategies. It has been demonstrated that the exact match score can be significantly improved with limited amounts of training data from the biomedical domain. Finally, the findings of the study have been summarized as Factoid QA Finetuning Framework (FQFF), which can provide initial direction for domain-specific QA tasks with a limited amount of data. © 2023 IEEE.

Covid-19 pandemic created a global shift in the way how consumers purchase. Restrictions to movements of individuals and commodities created a big challenge on day today life. Due to isolation, social media usage has increased substantially, and these platforms created significant impact carrying news and sentiments instantaneously. These sentiments impacted the purchase behavior of consumers and online retailers witnessed variations in their sales. Retailers used various customer behavior prediction models such as Recommendation systems to influence consumers and increasing their sales. Due to Covid-19 pandemic, these models may not perform the same way due to changes in consumer behavior. By integrating consumer sentiments from online social media platform as another feature in the prediction machine learning models such as recommendation systems, retailers can understand consumer behavior better and create Recommendations appropriately. This provides the consumers with appropriate choice of products in essential and non-essential categories based on pandemic condition restrictions. This also helps retailers to plan their operations and inventory appropriately. © 2023, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
