How AI/Machine Learning has Impacted the COVID-19 Pandemic
With the novel coronavirus outbreak in 2019 and 2020, it makes sense that many have tried to apply machine learning and artificial intelligence to various problems relating to the disease.
As early as February 2020, the novel coronavirus spike protein was mapped.
In the hunt for a vaccine, MIT researchers developed a platform called OptiVax to speed up development of peptide vaccines.
The researchers used OptiVax to predict groups of people that may not be fully protected by the vaccine because of their genetics.
