Graphen's AI analytics are helping to track the virus' mutations and spread

Graphen, a startup specializing in AI systems inspired by full brain functionality, has released its AI gene evolution pathway analysis of COVID-19 as the new coronavirus spreads across the globe.

The company modeled the spread and severity of COVID-19 by analyzing the variants of each reported whole genome sequencing from more than 30 countries and regions to date. Graphen then used the data to identify the virus' mutations as they spread. Graphen's AI-driven analytics visualize how the virus propagates, mutates, and spreads throughout the world.

"We are pleased to share that Graphen analyzed the evolution of COVID-19's virus SARS-CoV-2 with more than 370 strains of viruses from all over the world. Our team worked tirelessly and mapped out the evolution of the virus reported so far. We now have a better understanding of the propagation paths of the epidemic that has broken out around the world since Dec 2019," said Dr. Ching-Yung Lin, founder and CEO of Graphen.
