AI Drug Discovery

Implementing AI and ML to Accelerate Drug Discovery and Increase Success Rates

23 February 2023

Marriott Boston Quincy, Boston, MA

The AI Drug Discovery Summit has already taken place. Visit  our website or email for more info on other events of interest.

Drug discovery is a notoriously slow and expensive process, with the average timelines taking ten years and average costs of $2.6 billion. This has forced the pharmaceutical sector to streamline their approach and seek new and emerging technology to make the process quicker, cheaper and more efficient.

However, this transition can be difficult due to lack of skills and knowledge, resistance to change, inadequate infrastructure, and data availability.

With this in mind, the AI Drug Discovery Summit will provide the necessary tools to develop the AI roadmap, overcome common obstacles and integrate AI Technology into the drug discovery process.
