Using Machine Learning To Make Drug Discovery Better

New drugs typically take 12-14 years to make it to market, with a 2014 report finding that the average cost of getting a new drug to market had ballooned to a whopping $2.6 billion.It’s a topic I’ve covered before, with a study published earlier this year highlighting how automation could be used to reduce the cost of drug discovery by approximately 70%.It’s an approach that a number of companies are taking to market. For instance, London based start-up Benevolent.AI utilizes complex AI to look for patterns in the scientific literature.They have already managed to identify two potential drug targets for Alzheimer’s that has already attracted the attention of pharmaceutical companies.Automating drug discoveryA nice example of what could be possible is provided by a recent study published in Cell Chemical Biology.…
