La Tunisie et lecture en chiffre
En se basant sur les autres pays affectés, le nombre total de cas infectés en Tunisie est de 20 infectés par la COVID-19 (les cas officiels) mais il est impératif de connaître le nombre des cas réels. Il faut souligner ici que le virus se propageait sans être détecté depuis des semaines.
À première vue, en utilisant les données collectées et les ratios des données fiables nous avons créé un modèle qui estime le nombre de cas dans les semaines prochaines :
- Vrais cas probables aujourd’hui 44
- Vrais cas probables dans une semaine 476
Dans ces conditions, il faut signaler que nous allons arriver à 2000 cas probables dans deux semaines et plus de 35000 cas dans un mois. Il semblerait que c’est une estimation alarmante pour la Tunisie !
Par ailleurs, le but de cet article sur COVID-19 est de regrouper les recherches existantes, de rassembler les données pertinentes et de permettre aux lecteurs de comprendre les données publiées et les premières recherches sur l’épidémie de coronavirus.
Les décès et les infections dus au coronavirus dans le monde ont dépassé ceux de l’intérieur de la Chine pour la première fois depuis le début de l’épidémie.
Maintenant la question qui se pose est peut-on faire des estimations de cas de Coronavirus sur le court et moyen terme ? Et ce en se basant sur des données antérieurs ?
Les infections dans le monde ont atteint plus de 87 000, selon le traqueur de l’université Johns Hopkins, alors que les cas en Chine se sont élevés à 80 860, selon la Commission nationale chinoise de la santé.
Mais à bien considérer les choses, le centre d’infection le plus important en dehors de la Chine est en Italie, où il y a près de 25 000 infections confirmées et plus de 1 800 décès.
Le début d’épidémie
Le 31 décembre 2019, le bureau chinois de l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) a entendu les premiers rapports d’un virus inconnu derrière un certain nombre de cas de pneumonie à Wuhan, une ville de l’est de la Chine comptant plus de 11 millions d’habitants. COVID-19 a touché ensuite environ 80 969 personnes en Chine continentale, tuant 3 162 personnes.
La province du Hubei a été la plus durement touchée par COVID-19, la plupart des infections se produisant à Wuhan même.
Mais il faut souligner que la Corée du Sud est probablement une aberration statistique. La pile croissante de données a permis aux autorités de tester rapidement la maladie et de suivre sa propagation rapide Lors d’épidémies précédentes, des retards dans la collecte et le suivi ont entrainé des temps de réponse lents.
La suite alarmante
En dehors de la Chine, l’Italie a enregistré le plus grand nombre de cas, avec 10 149 personnes infectées confirmées, principalement dans le nord du pays. Le pays tout entier est désormais verrouillé après la prolongation de la quarantaine couvrant le nord du pays le 9 mars. Puis le Royaume unis avec un nombre total de cas qui s’élevait à 1 372, contre 1 140 à la même heure samedi. Ensuite la France qui a compté dimanche soir 127 morts et 5 423 cas de contamination depuis le début de l’épidémie.
Étude de données et interprétations
Le nombre total des cas infectés détectés en Italie aujourd’hui est de 21,157 en une courbe strictement croissante et alarmante. D’où on estime si le nombre de nouveaux infectés détectés hier était de 2,500, ils seront aujourd’hui de 3,497 nouveaux cas. On souligne ici sur le nombre des personnes détectées contre celles infectés sinon le nombre devrait être beaucoup plus élargi.
En effet, durant les deux semaines de la détection des premiers cas, l’Italie n’a pas enregistré des victimes. Mais au cours de 14 à jours, on a commencé à enregistrer des morts pour que ça atteigne aujourd’hui les 1,441 (175 nouveaux morts aujourd’hui et 250 hier).
Ce qui fait que le taux de mortalité du Corona en Italie aujourd’hui est de 6.8 % augmentant chaque jour de 0.5 point et dépassant la moyenne mondiale qui se situe aujourd’hui à 3.8 %.
On parle de deux taux de mortalité, le taux de mortalité général (nombre de morts divisé par le nombre d’infectés) et qui est aujourd’hui de 6.8 % en Italie et puis le taux de mortalité de cas fermés (récupération ou mort) et là le taux de mortalité atteint les 43 %.
En outre, on estime une augmentation d’infectés de 12 à 16 % quotidiennement et une augmentation de morts de 10 à 15 %.
L’écart entre le nombre de nouveaux infectés et récupérés augmente en exponentiel ce qui a généré le chaos qu’on distingue aujourd’hui.
Pour conclure, l’Espagne et la France suivent le même scénario que l’Italie malheureusement ou encore pire !
En résumé, il est temps pour un wake up all et arrêter de banaliser le COVID-19 ! Suivez les instructions gouvernementales car les chiffres sont vraiment alarmants !
In computer terms, “vision” involves systems capable of identifying elements, places, objects or people from visual images and all of those are gathered by a camera or a sensor.
Indeed, that’s the technology that enables your smartphone’s camera to recognize which part of the image is capturing and to feed technology such as Google Image Search.
In 2020, we will witness tools and technologies with computer vision deployed for an increasing number of uses.
This is fundamental to the way autonomous cars can “see” and manage the danger.
The production team will use “computer vision” cameras to detect defective products or equipment failures, and the security cameras will be able to alert if there’s something out of the ordinary, without requiring 24 hours surveillance, 7 days on 7.
Computer vision allows facial recognition
Computer vision also allows facial recognition, which we will hear a lot about in 2020.
We have already seen how technology can control access to our smartphones in the case of Apple’s Face ID and how the airport from Dubai uses it to offer the customer a more comforting trip.
However, as the use cases increase in 2020, there will also be more and more debate over limiting the use of this technology due to the potential privacy risks and the possibility of ‘state control similar to the ‘Big Brother ‘phenomena.

Invest in the Power of Predictive Analytics for better Water Management. Indeed, asking water utility companies to cut leakages remains always a delicate business case.

Applying data-based prediction is a great opportunity to preserve precious natural resources as water.
We work endlessly to use science and IT solutions to sustain development and create a better world for future generations. Our engineers are harnessing the power of predictive analytics to manage uncessary water losses and provide a better quality of services. we developed algorithms to predict unusal flow of water and potential leaks.

The water industry adapts data for more efficiency. In fact, the world is witnessing another crisis: water scarcity. Indeed, several conflicts over water resources are marking new headlines.

Following the 2016 report from the UNEP-hosted International Resource Panel, the demand on water supply will significantly grow by 40 % in 2030. Therfore, these alarming figures will even put more pressure on water utility providers. They should invest double efforts to provide the precious water. We talk about doubling our water consumption in the last century. The increasing demand on water resources is only getting issues more complicated. Thus, the water industry should change and evolve to meet the expectations of the increasing number of customers. The organizations that manage water supplies around the world are facing critical issues. The water scarcity is chief among them.

1/ Create Apps that Your Users Will Always Need:
While developing mobile apps, business leaders tend to prioritize their preferences and overlook their prospects’ needs. Most of the time, they fall prey to their whims and personal judgments. Unfortunately, they end up with an app that only they like. However, a mobile app, like any revolutionizing product, should address one problem to solve it. Your mobile application needs to meet the expectations of the users. It should speak to them and alleviate their discomfort.
2/Opt for Apps with an Excellent UI/UX Design:
In a world overwhelmed by social networks, your target audience can easily be tempted to dismiss using your app to move to another application offering the same services. Seeing this fierce competition, your application should stand out in terms of web design and the quality of services presented. Any app that you build, if you want it to really have a long-lasting audience, should be able to provide people with what they need and want.
To be in line with your customers’ needs, you should elaborate a clear plan and research following their preferences. This research would be able to provide you with great preliminary insights such as your possible competitors and your target audience. Use malice and try to succeed in issues that your main competitors failed in.
2/Interact with your Customers:
Communicating with your prospects contributes to the blossoming of your branding. You should always be ready to answer a question, add a recommendation and interact with your prospects. This is because it really shows how dedicated you are to serving your clients. The feedback you receive can also be used for analytics as well, which would only ever be valuable for addressing issues and improving your app overall.
3/ Keep a Consistent Flow of Updates:
Following this piece of advice, you are telling your customers that your app is really improving. Thanks to updates, you will be able to compare between the different changes you have uploaded to your mobile app. You can also add other shifts to even improve your app. Couple this with techniques that raise user engagement and retention, then you pretty much have a great formula for ensuring that your app remains relevant in its field and category.
