The coronavirus, instead of disrupting the march toward a digital world, has actually accelerated it, vastly strengthening the current revolution towards a digital, virtual world. Furthermore, AI and high technology will actually conquer the virus, by rapidly locating outbreaks and hotspots of the virus as they occur, identifying and isolating super spreaders, decoding the genetic weak spots of the virus, producing a safe vaccine in record time, and eventually crushing the pandemic. For the first time in human history, AI and high technology will allow us to vanquish this ancient but deadly enemy.’’
