Researchers have recognized a similarity between the way the immune system deciphers a virus and the way people comprehend one another’s thinking through language. You know where we are going with this, don’t you? This interesting news came to us from AI in Healthcare in their article, “AI learns COVID’s language to predict its next move.

Interpreting natural language feels like an opportunity for artificial intelligence (AI) to shine. A recent report detailed how principles behind these parallel modes of communication could be used with AI to predict which mutating strains of some viruses will become the most harmful.

Using AI to make these predictions could help guide further development of existing vaccines and development of more.

The natural language process (NLP) technology is being designed to process both syntax (i.e., sentence or clause construction) and semantics (i.e., meaning).

This isn’t the first time that AI has been used to discover and develop drugs. In recent years, machine learning has revolutionized many fields of science and engineering.
