DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Dubai has developed an AI tool that will help bystanders provide immediate care for patients while waiting for an ambulance.

ITP reported that the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services’ Immediate Response Project is utilizing an Artificial Intelligence app to help bystanders assess patients and walk them through lifesaving procedures before help arrives.

The app will also provide a video call with a medical team so that the bystander can receive even more guidance.

"We endeavor through this project to transform every resident and visitor in Dubai into a versed lifesaver to enhance the quality of ambulance services by speeding up the response time to less than four minutes,” DCAS executive director Khalifa Al Drai said. “Through this innovative project, DCAS will be able to provide immediate help in vital areas in Dubai, surpassing the initial target of four minutes by integrating savers from the community and utilizing smart systems based on AI and VR to harness residents' skills.”
