BEIJING - Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of China's internet giant Alibaba, is sharing its AI-powered novel coronavirus disease diagnostic technology for free use by hospitals worldwide.

The technology, developed by Alibaba DAMO Academy and Alibaba Cloud, can analyze CT images within 20 seconds for diagnosing suspected novel coronavirus cases with an accuracy rate of 96 percent.
