The World’s Fastest Supercomputer Identified Chemicals That Could Stop Coronavirus From Spreading

The coronavirus presents an unprecedented challenge for scientists worldwide. But this is what the world’s fastest supercomputer was built for. Summit, IBM’s supercomputer equipped with the “brain of AI,” ran thousands of simulations to analyze which drug compounds might effectively stop the virus from infecting host cells.
The supercomputer identified 77 of them. It’s a promising step toward creating the most effective treatment.
