AI-Driven COVID-19 Model Outperforms Competitors

November 30, 2020

While existing models to predict the spread of a disease already exist, few, if any, incorporate artificial intelligence (AI). Professor Yaser Abu-Mostafa is using a new model for predicting COVID-19's impact using AI and it dramatically outperforms other models, so much so that it has attracted the interest of public health officials across the country. "AI is a powerful tool, so it only makes sense to apply it to one of the most urgent problems the world faces," says Yaser Abu-Mostafa. [Caltech story]
