Coronaviruses are a well-known family of viruses that can infect humans or animals. Recently, the new coronavirus (COVID-19) has spread worldwide. All countries in the world are working hard to control the coronavirus disease. However, many countries are faced with a lack of medical equipment and an insufficient number of medical personnel because of the limitations of the medical system, which leads to the mass spread of diseases. As a powerful tool, artificial intelligence (AI) has been successfully applied to solve various complex problems ranging from big data analysis to computer vision. In the process of epidemic control, many algorithms are proposed to solve problems in various fields of medical treatment, which is able to reduce the workload of the medical system. Due to excellent learning ability, AI has played an important role in drug development, epidemic forecast, and clinical diagnosis. This research provides a comprehensive overview of relevant research on AI during the outbreak and helps to develop new and more powerful methods to deal with the current pandemic.
