Life Sciences Track - High-Tech Pandemic: How Researchers Are Using AI to Track Down Potential COVID-19 Treatments

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Epidemiologists have drawn some parallels between the 1918 flu pandemic and today’s COVID-19 crisis. But today’s disease-fighters have powerful AI tools scientists in the early 20th century could never have imagined. Researchers are using AI to design virus-blocking proteins. Others are using a suite of tools to simultaneously expose the virus’ vulnerabilities and discover drugs that could exploit them. In fact, AI engines have already screened billions of molecules in their hunt for prospective treatments and vaccines. We’ll explore the possibilities—and the progress so far—with experts who are taking AI to the coronavirus fight.
