Dr Andrew Garrett will participate on a panel discussion Digital R&D: AI - The Reckoning?

To what extent will AI bring down costs in R&D, or find cures, with no drugs yet discovered or commercialised with AI. The complexities of implementation, the issues of data collection, quality and the need for scale, are often underplayed amidst the hype. Where will AI add value to pharma R&D, and where will it not? Are current algorithms focusing on the right things? How are standalone AI drug companies doing things differently, and when might we see the first AI-developed drug?
