In 2020, 18007 articles have been published in IEEE Access journal. Prof Paul and his research team published the highly cited paper with the collaborations of Charles Sturt, UTS and Manning Rural Referral Hospital, Taree and funded by Charles Sturt and UTS: M. J. Horry, S. Chakraborty, M. Paul, A. Ulhaq, B. Pradhan, M. Saha, and N. Shukla, "COVID-19 Detection Through Transfer Learning Using Multimodal Imaging Data," in IEEE Access, vol. 8, pp. 149808-149824, 2020, doi: 10.1109/ACCESS.2020.3016780.
The paper is related to COVID-19 detection using Artificial Intelligence (specifically transfer learning of deep machine learning) with x-ray image, CT, and Ultrasound data. The technique is highly effective when we have scarcity of sample data for training.
