Fukuoka Startup Develops AI system to Monitor Hand Washing 

The Fukuoka-based startup Tsumug Inc. has developed an AI-based device to check if people wash their hands thoroughly. Trials began in collaboration with Fukuoka City at two of TiNK Desk’s coworking spaces. After washing their hands under the monitoring device, users who take a survey get a same-day voucher to use the shared office for 30 minutes. Source: tsumug / KBC
