AI vs. COVID-19 in drug discovery

April 21, 2020 | Case Study

COVID-19, caused by SARS-Cov-2, has transformed daily life across the globe in a few short months and has unleashed a scientific race to restore the economy and save patients. With the speed of COVID-19's spread and its associated social and economic impact, an effective and speedy solution is required. As a result, scientists have been unleashing AI and big data on COVID-19 to find drugs to treat it and vaccines to prevent it. AI in drug discovery has been under development for more than a decade to bring down drug development costs, which increased on average to more than $2.5 billion – a greater than 25× increase over the past 30 years.
