Online lecture by professor Maxim Fedorov: “Artificial Intelligence vs COVID-19″

Skoltech professor Maxim Fedorov will deliver an online lecture about the role of AI in combatting COVID-19 and share some news from the field.  

Scientists and doctors around the globe rely on trailblazing technology and AI in their struggle to create drugs and vaccines for the deadly virus.


Over the last hundred years, humankind has created a whole panoply of drugs for any imaginable illness. Could any of them kill СOVID-19? Or would it be better to synthesize a new molecule and wait until it passes clinical trials even if it takes more time and effort? How do scientists use AI to deal with the challenge? Will AI help make effective management decisions and lighten the burden on the healthcare system?

Scientists at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) are working hard on ways to stop the pandemic, enhancing their research with AI, Deep Learning and Big Data technology. For more details, watch the online lecture on Leader ID.

Maxim Fedorov is Director and Full Professor at the Skoltech Center for Computational and Data-Intensive Science and Engineering (CDISE). Maxim holds a PhD (Candidate of Science) degree in Physics and Mathematics and a Doctor of Science degree in Physical Chemistry from RAS. His research interests include computational molecular engineering, Big Data technology and molecular informatics, AI, and supercomputer design of complex molecular systems. Maxim is an author of over 100 publications and a holder of two patents.
