The world’s fastest supercomputer built by IBM has been running simulations to determine which drugs have the most effect against COVID-19. This computer has now identified 77 drug compounds most likely to cure a patient, meaning we have taken a major step in creating a vaccine. This can also be used to help better treat patients with the virus before a vaccine is made public. The hero computer running the simulations is known as Summit and has been in use by the U.S. Department of Energy since 2014. Currently it is more powerful than the fastest laptop by 1 million times. Summit has also been used in the past to study Alzheimer’s disease, extreme weather predictions, and genetics linked to addictive traits.
