Drug Discovery and Development
“… biomarker discovery with data science tools that can ensure their sensitivity, robustness and validate results…”
“A continuous medical follow up history generates a multitude of personalized data…”
“AI can make gene editing initiatives more accurate, safer and cheaper.”
“Unsupervised learning could change the way diseases are classified, as current disease ontologies were created in a top-down fashion based on the observed symptoms.”
“The most common use case (based on the number of involved companies) is compound screening for their affinity and toxicity.”
