AI could create a streamlined, automated approach to drug discovery, trawling vast datasets to identify targets, find candidate molecules and predict synthesis routes. Getting there will require significant vision, but we are already seeing exciting examples of AI helping direct research and reduce discovery times. We discuss the short and long term potential of AI in drug discovery.
In terms of consistency, repeatability, known errors and sheer volume, there exists perhaps no better collection of data for computer learning than that emerging from automated processes.
Advancements in technology, and in particular, developments in artificial intelligence (AI) are revolutionising the way that we live our lives. Up to now, we have used it to help us find the quickest route home or to search the Internet, but we now need to look much further.
