Market Trends: Adoption of artificial intelligence-based tools for drug discovery

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) make the drug discovery process more efficient and substantially improve success rates at the early stages of drug development. AI algorithms ingest and analyze a vast amount of information and can identify potential drug candidates in shorter periods of time. Deep learning systems can also be used for generating molecules with properties that are likely to be effective against specific diseases without adverse side effects. Such advantages have encouraged the adoption of AI for drug discovery by various pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. For instance, Benevolent Ltd. (UK) focuses on applying deep learning and natural language processing to understand and analyze large volumes of information for drug discovery.
