Cambridge Brewing Company
Cambridge, Middlesex County
AI brings hope for disrupting drug discovery. Also, it brings a lot of hype, as if no lessons were learnt from previous winters in both AI and computer-assisted drug discovery.
In this meeting, we will discuss these hopes and hypes.
Cambridge Brewing Co. at Kendall Square is a particularly suitable place for this discussion: nearby institutions produce a lot of AI research, which sometimes contribute to the hype.
I blogged about specific examples, coming from:
“AI in drug discovery is overhyped: examples from AstraZeneca, Harvard, Stanford and Insilico Medicine ” https://medium.com/the-ai-lab/artificial-intelligence-in-drug-discovery-is-overhyped-examples-from-astrazeneca-harvard-315d69a7f863
(this post was covered by Boston blogger Derek Lowe: https://blogs.sciencemag.org/pipeline/archives/2018/01/10/objections-to-some-drug-discovery-ai)
'MIT paper in machine learning for drug discovery at ICML 2018: very incomplete'
We will also discuss concrete solutions to this hype problem.
The meeting is free and open to everyone.
