Why superconductivity at room temperature is SO important that the physics world is running behind it like AI in computer science field?

A lot of power is lost in electrical transmission lines,and though cooling to the temperature of liquid nitrogen is possible it is in most cases impractical. Room temperature superconductivity would save a huge amount of power being wasted and abolish the need for high tech hospital equipment such as NMRI scanners to have magnets cooled by liquid nitrogen. The same goes for the magnets of particle accelerators and tokomaks.
