On previous occasions we exposed as with Artificial intelligence they are developing drugs, born from the creativity of AI. Stressing that these medicines remain in a state of trial, in an isolated and controlled space. However, capable it was time to shine for the platforms, since they could find the cure of Coronavirus.
First of all, a summary context is needed on the current situation with the virus that is hitting the world, the Coronavirus. It should be noted that on previous occasions we have exposed on the subject, although we invite you to read our articles, we urge you to seek professional information.
Knowing this, we proceed to explain the context, highlighting that it is a virus that has animal origin, it is suspected that it comes from bat soup. This is a virus that is transmitted through the air and is highly contagious. Among its symptoms is mainly a very high fever, nausea, limb pain and respiratory problems.
However, there are two important issues about the virus, which can be handled by Artificial Intelligence. We mean that, like the viruses of past years, such as the “Swine Flu” or “Avian Flu”, these are viruses that are in constant mutation.
Therefore, there is no direct cure for the virus, with symptomatic treatment. This means that each symptom should be treated as it manifests. In addition, we highlight that it is curable eventually, there are already healed cases; However, if left untreated, it can become deadly.
It is at this point that AI can support treatment
of people suffering from Coronavirus, since it is now possible to overcome
people’s abilities. With the implementation of these platforms,
It can attack the virus by two main areas.
First with its analysis before evolving, even with the possibility of predicting what will evolve, making it easier to create a cure. This application of AI is being carried out in the United Kingdom by people from Benevolent AI, studying the virus with its unique platforms.
It should be noted that their progress published them in the middle “The Lancet”, Emphasizing that its focus is currently on testing existing medications and their effectiveness.
The second area to be manipulated has a more direct impact, however more complex. The people of Insilico Medicine They plan to use their AI to design a new drug that completely cures Coronavirus. The idea is to combine a series of molecules that are capable of fighting the virus, even if it evolves. It is said to be more complex because they skip the direct understanding of the virus, using AI to simulate possible cases based on current information.
I am an economics student, interested in innovation and technological development, always faithful that tomorrow will be a better day.
