Do you guys think AI will have a hand in preventing the next major pandemic?
I don't think so. It is irrelevant. At first, machine learning is best and most efficient when there is data to crunch and analyze. Having a new coronavirus strain makes it difficult for these AIs to bring out results.

Also, the disease carrying nCov isn't really airborne. It's just transmitted when fluids are transferred through sneeze or shaking hands.

It might still be useful in other diseases, but in the latest outbreak, it seems not. The best solution is strict quarantine protocols and finding a cure as soon as possible.
