Preventing the Next Epidemic (Let Alone Pandemic) by Neil Sahota
Viruses can be major slayers to health and wealth. There's real concern about what the next big virus might be, the mutations of COVID into a seasonal diseases, and/or viruses teaming up to take down people. Thankfully, there is hope! Taking a page from manufacturing, we can combine artificial intelligence (AI) and generative design to identify millions of potential virus outbreaks. Armed with this knowledge (and virus genomics), researchers could pinpoint preventive measures, or perhaps even a vaccine before the viral outbreak occurs... and allow us to stop an epidemic, let alone a pandemic, before it even occurs.

AI LA is a community of today's most curious minds focused on tomorrow’s most challenging problems. We explore artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other emerging technologies, and the impacts they will have on humanity. We acknowledge that AI is influenced by both art and science, and that human concerns outweigh technological ones.
