Noor Shaker, the Senior Vice President and General Manager for DNA technology company X-Chem, has been named a winner in the Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards programme from Business Intelligence Group.
Shaker was one of six receiving an individual award from Business Intelligence Group, which recognises people and organisations applying artificial intelligence (AI) to solve real-world problems. Shaker was recognised for her achievements in AI, which include numerous patents and papers published in the field and its application to drug discovery and AI. Shaker also sits on AI and diversity advisory boards for several organisations and universities.
“I am very passionate about data and pushing the boundaries for what is possible with AI,” Shaker said. “AI is set to transform nearly every aspect of our lives and culture, and its use to increase the efficiency of drug discovery has increased considerably over the past few years. The ultimate aim of our team at X-Chem is to cure disease — and we believe that our AI technology, combined with our DEL and medicinal chemistry expertise, will help enable this step change in drug discovery.”
“We are so proud to name Noor Shaker as a winner in our inaugural Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards programme,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer for Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that Noor was using AI to improve the lives of their customers and employees. Congratulations to the entire team!”
