The coronavirus pandemic has ravaged the world, and vaccines have been developed to combat it. However, some groups of scientists have developed an AI that could show where the next coronavirus will come from.
AI to detect next coronavirus location
A group of medical scientists has developed a model of AI to predict where the next COVID-19 will come from. The medical researchers used elements that consist of biology and machine language. Their software has predicted many potential variants of the COVID-19 and where they can be seen. The findings can be found in the journal Nature Communications.
According to Dr. Marcus Blagrove, a health viral official from London University, said it is essential that they know where the next coronavirus will come from. '' An avenue to generate this is by recombining another coronavirus available. These scientists have been able to input biological sequences into the computer software and teach the AI how to detect viruses and host species that may be part of the recombination.
Scientists able to match sequence with possible host mammals
Scientists use some unique biology patterns to detect which animals might be the host of the coronavirus. There have been about 421 variants of coronavirus and 875 suspected host animals. Lead scientist Maya Warden succeeded in using biology to tell the software how to gather patterns that may likely happen. He said they were able to match the mammals with potential coronaviruses.
There are similar species that move together and which reside in the same location. This health study concludes that many animals were the potential host for fresh coronaviruses after years of screening useful information. Possible animals that might serve as a host are Asian civet and bat. These mammals can host up to 45 coronavirus strains.
Also, European rabbits and hedgehogs, and camels can have 70 coronaviruses. Health officials are certain that these findings could help prevent fresh diseases and stop the next pandemic.
