How we used AI to help in the fight against COVID-19

COVID-19 put the scientific community to the test
Covid-19 has been a disruptive event in many areas. It reached the scientific community like a tsunami of research papers, scholarly articles and a massive amount of textual information. There is a growing urgency to process and make sense of this information because of the rapid acceleration in new coronavirus literature, making it difficult for the medical research community to keep up.
Looking for meaningful answers
After months of research we were able to build RECORD, a proprietary AI model that can help researchers to find the right information amidst a sea of data. We partnered with Centro Medico Sant’Agostino, a Milan-based healthcare facility, to validate the AI model and the precision of the answers. The model is currently being used for testing purposes and it could be used in a production environment to empower a Covid-19 virtual assistant capable of answering the most advanced scientific questions about the virus.
