As governments and health organizations scramble to contain the spread of coronavirus, they need all the help they can get, including from artificial intelligence.

Though current AI technologies are far from replicating human intelligence, they are proving to be very helpful in tracking the outbreak, diagnosing patients, disinfecting areas, and speeding up the process of finding a cure for COVID-19.

DeepMind, the AI research lab, recently declared that it has used deep learning to find new information about the structure of proteins associated with COVID-19. Every day saved in finding the coronavirus vaccine can save hundreds—or thousands—of lives.
