Artificial Intelligence Can Help Fight CoronaVirus

The fear and panic as the coronavirus (known as ‘2019-nCov’ or ‘Covid-19) has spread globally. Covid-19 had taken the lives of 33,993 as well as bringing more than 723, 279 documented cases of infected people across 192 countries.

The pandemic outbreak of novel coronavirus has taken the world by storm. It has created a huge stir across the socio-economic landscape of various countries.

Out of 195, the reports say, COVID-19 has infected 192 nations across the globe. While the death toll is rising in other countries like Italy, China is recovering from Wuhan-origin virus with no new domestic cases registered recently, since the outbreak.

But how is China recovering while others are getting deep into the unhealthy mess? The answer is Artificial Intelligence and significant other disruptive technologies. The country is using AI, big data, like mechanisms to fight against coronavirus.

Tech giants like Baidu and Alibaba are spearheading innovative initiatives to curb the crisis. Apart from China, AI-based med techs and startups from various regions including the US are emerging at the forefront with their innovation to combat the pandemic situation.

Countries around the world – including the US, South Korea and Taiwan – are using artificial intelligence (AI) to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The technology is being used to speed up the development of testing kits and treatments, to track the spread of the virus, and to provide citizens with real-time information.

Artificial intelligence and applied science are making it easier, faster, and cheaper to understand how the virus spreads, how to manage it, and how to contain its devastating effects.


1. A.I. May Be Able To Predict Epidemics.

Artificial Intelligence, or more commonly known as A.I., can warn of an upcoming epidemic and give us enough time to prepare.

In the future, A.I. could even use social media data to predict human behavior and potential outbreaks.

2. A.I. Can Speed Up Drug Discovery and Development.

A.I. is not only able to warn us of an impending epidemic, but it can help us identify, develop, and scale new treatments and vaccines faster than ever before.

“The opportunity for AI to speed up the discovery of vaccines, drugs and diagnostics is huge, especially for rapidly-mutating RNA-viruses like Covid where a broad-spectrum approach is needed.”

3. A.I. May Help Minimize Fatality and Optimize Disease Management 

Lastly, A.I. can help manage the outbreak and minimize fatalities by decreasing the burden on the healthcare professionals and reminding patients on proper care procedures.

You can be the help, touch great heights in your career and make country proud. Learn AI and ML while being at home. Utilize this time in the creation of bright future of yours and of course, of the nation as well.
