Goods in West Virginia and elsewhere may unfortunately have defects that can cause consumers serious injuries. Fortunately, though, technology may make it easier to spot issues with products in the future. According to experts, artificial intelligence (AI) in particular may help with identifying dangerous products.
Researchers at a university have developed an AI program that is capable of identifying items that are still on store shelves but may need to be recalled. This program is based in part on customer reviews on Amazon. This is not a far cry from what health departments throughout the United States are already doing: they are using Google, Yelp and Twitter data to monitor foodborne illnesses.
