I believe AI has a brilliant future in public health monitoring, new drug developing and disease diagnosis. It improves detection sensibility and accuracy, shortens the development period for new drugs, lowers development costs and helps improve accuracy and efficiency in diagnosis, which puts humankind in a more proactive position to tackle health problems.

As an insider, I know we are progressing. The LinearFold algorithm by Baidu is able to shorten the structure prediction for the secondary structure of the novel coronavirus' whole genome from 55 minutes to 27 seconds, 120 times faster. It means we are able to formulate prevention and control measures more quickly, in addition to improving efficiency in developing vaccines.
