Artificial Intelligence is certainly not the next big thing, in fact, it is the big thing currently. AI has been making waves and has reached people tremendously since Iphone’s Siri came, listening to humans and replying back in a human manner, a thing that amazed people and made scholars find out as to how it can be done, what is the technique, the language behind building it. It is no secret that AI is nothing without data and with Harvard already ruling out in 2012 that Data Science is the sexiest job of the 21st century, because of the smartphone, people have a portable computer and a portable internet, so, people digitally excrete large amounts of data from their phones itself, that being said in the current pandemic situation, there is more & more need of AI and it has helped people to some extent to fight the pandemic. 

AI has such demand that there are daily some developments or the other taking place, so, we at datamahadev will be starting out a new section that will be published on a weekly basis that will list out the developments that happened in AI in the past week, here are some of them.

IIIT Delhi has developed an AI that repositions the existing drugs to treat COVID-19

IIIT Delhi claimed that they have developed an AI that has the ability to repurpose the drug for the treatment of the pandemic. Some primordial examples of drug repositioning are Hydroxychloroquine, Remedisivir, Dexamethasone, etc. There is a database of drugs that can be found on In Layman’s terms, the AI model calculates the analysis between the chemical structures of the drugs and the genomic structures of the virus.

AI predicts which planets will be destroyed

The fate of the solar system can now be predicted with the help of machine learning algorithms. The project involves understanding the dynamics of the celestial/planetary system. The prediction that came out was that some planets will destabilize from their orbits in less than millions of years. The goal of the project was to draw out the instabilities. This project was carried out by D.Tamayo from the National Academy of Sciences, 2020.
