Before AI turns against us, it’s helping us quickly design COVID-19 mRNA vaccine sequences that are 128-times better that the ones designed by mere mortals.


A team of researchers from Baidu Research recently developed an AI algorithm that can quickly design highly stable COVID-19 mRNA vaccine sequences, even when they were previously unattainable. The algorithm, called LinearDesign, represents a significant breakthrough in both stability and efficacy for vaccine sequences, achieving a 128-fold increase in the COVID-19 vaccine’s antibody response.
