Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Drug Discovery: A Peek Inside the Approaching future of Drug Research and Discovery

  • AI technology is not dependable on treatments that are predetermined for drug research and discovery. Therefore, existing knowledge and subjective preference are not an obstacle in the drug development method using AI technology.
  • AI technology uses advanced computing and biology to develop high algorithms for drug research and discovery. Due to the continuous rise in processing strength and reducing processing cost, artificial intelligence has the higher capabilities to raise the drug development standards.
  • AI technology has better predictive power for determining the meaningful interaction taking place in a drug screen. Thus, the chances of false positives are reduced by accurately designing the parameters in specific drug discovery questions.
  • Most importantly, artificial intelligence has the capability of moving drug screening from a traditional manner to virtual labs. It can help in getting the drug results at a greater speed by shortlisting the promising targets without any extensive experiments and manpower.
