Press release content from Accesswire. The AP news staff was not involved in its creation.

DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / December 4, 2020 / DermaScan’s temperature screening technology in the US has become an essential and effective tool for government and businesses relying on in-person operations during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

With experts recognizing fever being one of the indicating symptoms of the virus, temperature checks are becoming a standard in proactive measures in minimizing risk exposure. In early 2020, DermaScan’s focus changed towards temperature screening hardware and software that, through unique infrared technology, can operate independently or integrate with other devices, such as security doors, which has been a proactive measure in states where ordinances are consistently changing officials say.

“Consistent temperature screenings are as reliable as oral thermometer readings, yet quicker in results and more sanitary to keep traffic in motion while safe,”

Former Presidents Obama, Clinton and Bush say they’d take COVID-19 vaccine on camera to promote its safety

Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton plan to take a coronavirus vaccine on camera to raise confidence in its safety. 

Mr. Obama said in an interview excerpt on Sirius XM released Wednesday that if the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, told him the vaccine was safe, he would believe him and signaled that he’d take it himself. 

“So, if Anthony Fauci tells me this vaccine is safe, and can vaccinate, immunize you from getting COVID,” he said. “Absolutely, I’m going to take it.” 

“I promise you that when it’s been made for people who are less at risk, I will be taking it,” he said. “I may end up taking it on TV or having it filmed, just so that people know that I trust this science, and what I don’t trust is getting COVID.” 

Two of his living predecessors said they would

  • Amazon AWS is launching a series of industrial monitoring tools that use AI to help companies identify potential equipment failures, productivity bottlenecks, and worker safety violations.
  • The new tools, previously reported by Business Insider, signal Amazon’s growing ambitions in the industrial cloud space.
  • One of the tools uses artificial intelligence to analyze video footage and look for “anomalies” in industrial processes, raising concerns given reports of Amazon’s history of spying on workers and using racially and gender biased AI. 
  • An Amazon spokesperson told Business Insider the tool doesn’t currently have “pre-packaged facial recognition capabilities,” and that AWS “thoroughly tests and audits” its algorithms and uses diverse training data.

Keyhole wasps may threaten aviation safety — ScienceDaily

Over a period of 39 months, invasive keyhole wasps (Pachodynerus nasidens) at the Brisbane Airport were responsible for 93 instances of fully blocked replica pitot probes — vital instruments that measure airspeed — according to a study published November 30 in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Alan House of Eco Logical Australia and colleagues. As noted by the authors, the results underscore the importance of risk-mitigating strategies, such as covering pitot probes when aircraft arrive and setting up additional traps to intercept the wasps.

Interactions between aircraft and wildlife are frequent and can have serious financial and safety consequences. But the risk posed by wildlife when aircraft are on the ground is much less understood, and specific threats posed by insects have not been quantified before. In the new study, House and his colleagues investigated the possible role of keyhole wasps in obstructing pitot probes at Brisbane
