Rumble In the wake of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, businesses across the US are preparing to re-open.
According to Business Insider, many are looking for high-tech tools to monitor the health of employees.
Some offices are installing thermal cameras, which provide a rough estimate of people's body temperatures in real time.
Such cameras could alert bosses if an employee is running a fever.
Kogniz's HealthCam systems are fitted with AI that can also detect how far apart people are, helping employers enforce social distancing.
HealthCam can also use facial recognition to track individuals' movements, to enable contact tracing.
Some privacy advocates say pairing thermal cameras with facial recognition could be invasive.
